Porsche Cayman GT4 pricing and specifications

On sale: TBC

Engine: 3.8-litre six-cylinder petrol

Power: 283kW at 7400rpm

Even before you get behind the wheel of the Cayman GT4 there's very little doubt that this is a car with serious intentions.

First, there's the look. The massive front air dam has three huge openings to feed the engine's front mounted radiators, there's enlarged scoops on the flanks to force-feed more air into the mid-mounted engine and at the rear there's a fixed wing the size of a picnic table and a seriously large under-bumper diffuser.

And that's pretty much the point behind the GT4. Porsche reckons 80 per cent of those who own one of its GT-badged cars will drive it on a racetrack at some stage.

With the GT4, that's become a whole lot more affordable thanks to a $190,300 pricetag, as opposed to $293,600 for the 911 GT3.

Yet the GT4 uses some hardware donated directly from its bigger brother, included the entire front suspension and steering system, plus huge 380mm disc brakes that require 20-inch diameter road wheels so they will fit on the car.

The 283kW, 3.8-litre flat six engine comes from the 911 Carrera S and has been rotated 180 degrees to fit the Cayman's mid-engined configuration, with some associated alterations to plumbing.

Perhaps the biggest difference between the GT4 and the GT3 – or any other Porsche sports car, for that matter – is it's available only with a six speed manual gearbox and no PDK (automated dual clutch) transmission is offered.
