http://www.planet-9.com/gallery/files/3/gt4360.jpg The benchmark in its class: the Porsche Cayman GT4

Stuttgart. The new member of the Porsche GT family is the Cayman GT4. This is the first time Porsche is introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman which has components of the 911 GT3. A lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds on the North Loop of the Nürburgring positions the Cayman GT4 as the new benchmark at the top of its market segment. It also makes a clear statement that Porsche will continue to promote radical two-door sports cars in the future – sports cars that are developed at the Motorsport department in Weissach.

The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the top model still retains the versatility and everyday utility that are typical of the two-seat Porsche coupe. It is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine with 385 hp (283 kW), which is derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. Its power is always transmitted by a six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts. The Cayman GT4 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds; its top speed is 295 km/h. The car's NEDC fuel consumption is 10.3 l/100 km. The chassis – which features a 30 mm lower body position and a generously sized brake system – consists nearly entirely of components from the 911 GT3.

Fit for the circuit race track: first Porsche Cayman with downforce at both axles
On its exterior, the Cayman GT4 is clearly differentiated from related mid-engine coupes. Three distinctive inlet openings at the front and a large fixed rear wing are part of an aerodynamic package which is systematically designed for downforce. Upon request, the Cayman GT4 can be equipped even more comprehensively for sporty use. Options include the PCCB ceramic brake system, full shell seats made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), a custom Sport Chrono Package with the unique Track Precision app and a Club Sport Package.

The interior of the Cayman GT4 is designed so that the driver and front passenger can experience unfiltered driving enjoyment. They sit on sport seats, upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara, which are distinguished by very good lateral support. The new GT4 sport steering wheel guarantees ideal control and direct steering feedback due to its compact dimensions.

Technical aspects of the new GT sports car are based on the 911 GT3. As a mid-engine sports car and a prime example of driving dynamics in its class – it follows the conceptual tradition of such cars as the 904 GTS, 911 GT1, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder.
GT sports cars from Porsche embody the most passionate connection possible between everyday driving and the race track and thereby the sporty core of the brand: Intelligent Performance. Four out of five drivers of Porsche sports cars with this classification also use them on the race track.

The Cayman GT4 celebrates its world premiere in early March at the Geneva International Motor Show. It can already be ordered now, and it will arrive at dealers at the end of March. In Germany, the price of the Cayman GT4 is 85,779 euros including VAT and country-specific features.

Or out driving around the YELLOW press car, which you know they did because of me right? :)

BTW you have to love at the 14:35 mark of the EVO video that the subject of track use comes up and Porsche has given its blessing by saying "ABSOLUTELY" :)

Porsche announces Cayman GT4 with 911 GT3 components

Filed under: Geneva Motor Show, Porsche, Coupe, Luxury, Performance
Porsche introduces the Cayman GT4, with a 385-horsepower, 3.8-liter flat-six slung in its middle and a chassis and looks that borrow heavily from the mighty 911 GT3. And enthusiasts rejoice: the only transmission available in the GT4 is a six-speed manual.Continue reading Porsche announces Cayman GT4 with 911 GT3 components

I have been offered one by a couple of dealers should I wish to purchase from them, but at this point it's all about the Benjamins. Just having spent the last 6 months caring for my father before he passed I need to get back into the job market full time and generate some substantial income if I am going to have a toy like this. :)

We are sending 2 members of this website to Geneva to cover the launch first hand for Planet-9.com!


In fact I should start a list for our reporters to gather for our members in a separate topic thread... standby! Here you go: http://www.planet-9.com/981-chat/105002-what-do-you-want-know-about-gt4.html#post920709

Manual definitely sets apart GT4 from GT3 and not to mention the impressive specs and eargasmic sound to top it all.

The exhaust note at the end of the Evo video is simply ridonkulous! Holy crap that ride is bad ***!
As I wrote on the previous thread, the exhaust sound watered my eyes.

Ignore all what was said in the interview. Just look at the car and hear the exhaust, not only a GT4 even a Cayman non-S would sell like hot cakes.

981 Boxster owners, we always drooled on your Yellows.. now it's time for you to weep on the Cayman GT4. ;)

Even if I own a Pagani one day (when pigs grow wings) you'll find me everywhere here. P9 is my online home. :)

now the question is how much is one of this????


lemon
The quotes I saw were starting around $85k (US) and about the same in EUR (in Germany I guess). I am putting my deposit down tomorrow and expect to spend some more extra (like the SC package, bucket seats, that sweet yellow stitching interior). I first was thinking ordering it PTS viper green or some light non-metallic blue. But the yellow interior accents with the outside just is so tempting...
