Here's the devilish Porsche Cayman GT4 RS

It's handsome, isn't it?

Porsche has been working on the range-topping GT4 version of the Cayman for a while now and after months of speculation and hearsay, we finally get the chance to look at some pictures revealing the actual model with barely any camouflage at all, courtesy of Drivetribe's prodigious photographers.

Mr. Andreas Preuninger, Head of GT department at Porsche, is thrilled with the brand's latest creation and he also says that the track-friendly GT4 RS might herald the arrival of a more focused road car. “There’s always room, if you create the room,” he said. “There are lots of ideas that we have at the moment, and the good point is we have a lot more ideas than we can really carry out and realise. But I would say, yes, sure. Stay tuned on this channel.”

Porsche certainly gave the GT4 RS the racing credentials it deserves. It's got NACA ducts at the front to help cool the brakes and Porsche engineers also fitted window louvres in the side rear windows to funnell extra air into the uprated flat-six. Markus Baumann, the man in charge of Porsche's boxer engines, says more upgrades and high-tech components are being considered because adding "a dry sump, new valvegear and titanium internals would enable this engine for more power and more revs". On top of that, the GT4 RS is going to be equipped with custom made tyres, race-spec suspension and even more aero features.

The only problem is that with the GT4 RS, Porsche is treading on marketing eggshells because one of the unwritten rules says that the Cayman can never be more expensive or faster than the 911. That would be a definite no-no but hey, that's a nice problem to have, isn't it?

  • I’m sure tuners will come up with more aero parts and turn up the boost. Possibly even bigger turbos and intercooler etc.. I would love to see slightly modified cayman GT4 kicking 911 GT2 RS all over the places. it’s really stupid of Porsche to limit the better platform so they can make more profit from inferior rear engine platform.

    This is like slowing down man kind. It is so not like German.

    • Happens. History is rife with examples.

      Big mistake on their part. 911 has become a GT. Let it BE a GT. Move this into the true sports car slot because that is where it belongs.

      DEFUND 911’s!!

    • The 4.0 flat six in the GT4 is naturally aspirated, if I'm not mistaken.
