It's almost impossible to fault the Porsche Cayman GT4. I mean, that's exactly what you'd expect when Porsche stuffs a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six from the 911 in one of the finest mid-engine sports car chassis in the world, with perfect balance.
The biggest complaint with the GT4 was its excessively tall gear ratios in its six-speed wich many say it was because Porsche did not want the GT4 to be faster than the 911 GT3.
So it is not quite perfect, and that's where Sharkwerks comes in.
Sharkwerks is a California tuning firm that's best known for turning 911 GT3s and GT2s into high-horsepower monsters. With the Cayman GT4, its upgrades are subtle, but as Drivetribe's Henry Catchpole finds out, they add up to make a huge difference.
It's not quite perfect though, and that's where Sharkwerks comes in.

The manual–Sharkwerks shortened the ratios. While the people from Sharkerks had the gearbox disassembled, they installed a lighter flywheel to make the motor even quicker.
Additionally, horsepower is bumped from 385 in the standard GT4 to a healthy 420. To round things out, Sharkwerks upgraded the GT4's limited-slip differential, installed a larger rear wing, and dive planes at the front.
This is hardly a crazy tuner car, but it doesn't need to be. With the Cayman GT4, Sharkwerks starts with one of the best modern sports cars and simply refines it to perfection, making this GT4 the perfect mid-sized sports car of all times
