New 2019 Porsche Cayman GT4 Spied Running the ‘Ring



Quote:
As seen with Alien, Spiderman, Transformers, Deadpool, Pirates of the Caribbean, Blade Runner and Guardians of the Galaxy, all our favorite things are getting a sequel or reboot and that includes the awesome Porsche Cayman GT4.

As these recent spy photos show, it looks like the GT4 is coming back now that Porsche is done tinkering with the 911 GT3. While the Cayman was recently given a turbocharged flat-four engine (along with a new numerical name: 718) it’s likely that the high-speed editions of the mid-engined coupe will remain naturally aspirated. As always, a manual transmission will likely be the only one available.

While the last Cayman GT4 used a 3.8-liter flat six, some rumors are saying this model will sport a bigger engine like the 4.0-liter six-cylinder used in the 911 GT3. It’ll have to be detuned in this model so it doesn’t encroach on the 911’s territory, but expect it to make more than the 385 hp that the previous GT4 model had. If you need more proof that a new engine is in the works, the shoddy exhaust setup in this mule makes it seem the automaker is testing something different.

Porsche is also working on the vehicle’s suspension, as the car is sporting foam in the wheel arches and looks unusually wide for a Cayman. And what better place to test a new lightweight mid-engined sports car than the world famous Nurburgring?

Sports car fanatics went nuts for the previous lightweight GT4 and it sold out completely, so a new one will likely be just as popular. While a few questions remain, the most important ones are: when do we get one, and will it end up being called a GT4 or a GT4 RS?
