The first rendering with an upcoming version of the Porsche Cayman, the GT4, has recently hit the web, providing us with a glimpse into what the sports car may be like.
It’s no surprise anymore that the German based automaker Porsche is currently working on a hot version of the Cayman, the so-called GT4, as the model in question has been already caught on camera by our spy photographers, while being tested out. The new flagship GT4 will narrow the gap between the Cayman and its more powerful brother, the 911, and it should replace, over the next few years, the GTS.
Some rumors are saying that the Porsche Cayman GT4 will use a hybrid powertrain, which will be inspired by the one from the 918 Spyder. This will be, of course, toned down, and it will be made from a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, probably the 2.0 liter unit, which will be backed up by an electric motor. It seems uncertain at the moment whether Porsche will use this or a regular straight-six instead. An updated body kit, along with some modifications made to the cabin will be adopted too, along with the PDK transmission. The Porsche Cayman GT4 is believed to make its way onto the market in 2 years.
