Porsche Cayman GT4 is real, was caught on the open road
The report on Porsche working on a hot Cayman GT4 has turned out to be real as the model in question has been recently caught on camera by our spy photographers while being tested.
A few days ago we were presenting a report which was announcing a Porsche Cayman GT4 and now we have the proof that this is currently in development. The model in question will narrow the gap between the Cayman and its more powerful brother, the 911, even more, and its top of the range status, the GTS, will be lost in the next couple of years. Rumors are saying that the model in question will be using a hybrid powertrain, borrowed from the 918 Spyder but under a toned down form.
This will be made out of a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, backed up by an electric motor, but it remains to be seen whether Porsche will go for this or it will offer a straight-six instead. The GT4 will stand above the GTS and it will get an updated body kit and some tweaks made to its cabin. A PDK transmission will be offered too. The Porsche Cayman GT4 is said to hit the market in 2 years, even if it is currently being tested out.
