Sports cars are rarely subjected to crash tests, and when they have price tags of over $100,000, these instances become fewer and further between. Still, Porsche has been doing this kind of thing for decades, and we're pretty sure that all the bases are covered. Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has a review to offer up, though, so if you're looking for something official, you'll be waiting a while.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Sure, the GT4 is a little scant on safety features, but there's nothing missing that wasn't in most cars 10 years ago. What you do get is a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, and adaptive bi-xenon headlights. You also get frontal, overhead, and side-impact airbags and the usual traction and stability management systems like anti-lock brakes. As an option, you can have adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams, but beyond that, no additional safety equipment is offered.

Thus far, neither the brand new 2022 nor the outgoing 2021 edition of the 718 Cayman GT4 has been subject to a single recall.
Should anything go awry, the GT4 is covered by a limited and powertrain warranty for the first four years/50,000 miles. In addition, a 12-year corrosion warranty is offered for the paint and the first 10,000 miles or first year of ownership will cost you nothing in maintenance.
