On the back of the potent Porsche Cayman GT4 launching at the Geneva Motor Show 2015, the German marque has revealed that an even more potent Cayman GT4 RS variant could be produced in the future.

While speaking with Evo Magazine at the show, Porsche Motorsport boss Andreas Preuninger said “This is just the beginning of the era. I would be interested in doing a Cayman GT4 RS version, but at the moment we didn’t even talk about such a thing. If the customers call for something like this we could think about it.

“We underestimated the success of the Cayman GT4, which shows that we were right with the concept. In England, within three days two years of cars were sold. It happened in Sweden, it happened in Germany…everywhere,” he said.

If a Porsche Cayman GT4 RS was created, it would likely feature less weight and even more power than the Cayman GT4. Additionally, the suspension setup would also be modified to provide even better on-track performance.

As it stands, the Cayman GT4 is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six that produces 385 horsepower, a power unit that has been derived from the 991 911 Carrera S. Of course as with all other Cayman models, the GT4’s engine will be mid-mounted.

Interestingly, and in contrast to the 911 GT3, the Cayman GT4 is only available with a manual transmission. The resulting performance figures of the Cayman GT4 are nothing short of exceptional. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) is dispatched in a brisk 4.4-seconds and it will continue to accelerate to a top speed of 295 km/h (183 mph).

  1. the limit is never reached… just look at the guys in “street outlaws” as they put over 1500 hp on silly-wide tires and still complain about “going too slow”…. (not to mention all the thousands with 3-10000+ hp drivers)
    just look at the recent high-end watches… they have left the old bespoke “clean & classy” looks for the most outrageous space-3d-4d design. soon applewatch is released and we will probably all die from too much information one day… :-)
    we need to focus on what’s fun again. not whats most extreme.
