Get Your Checkbooks Ready For The New Porsche 718 Cayman GT4

Spy Shots

Camouflaged only by snowflakes.

What you’re looking at is a practically undisguised Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 caught winter testing by our spy photographers just ahead of its expected unveiling next month at Geneva. Porsche clearly made little to no effort to disguise the final production car, hence our reasoning that it’s debut is imminent. But let’s talk specs, shall we. As previously reported, the new 718 Cayman GT4 is expected to be powered by the same 4.0-liter naturally aspirated flat-six found in the 911 GT3.

It will be slightly detuned so it doesn’t infringe upon the GT3’s territory. Figure an output of around 450 hp instead of 500 hp. All of that power will be directed straight to the rear wheels through either a manual or PDK gearbox. And because of the lack of camouflage, we can get a good look at the side air intakes. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, Porsche opted to lightly disguise the rear diffuser, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see the real deal and a few other small details. Also notice that the exhaust pipes have moved out a few inches on each side. The 718 Cayman GT4 will essentially be the coupe version of the also upcoming 718 Boxster Spyder. However, we can’t confirm whether or not it’ll also be making a Geneva appearance.

It’s possible, but Porsche may prefer to unveil it at New York later that month. In any case, unlike the rest of the 718 Cayman lineup, the GT4 is unique in that it’ll be naturally aspirated. Question is whether this trend will continue in a few years’ time when a completely redesigned generation arrives. For now, the new 718 Cayman GT4 will be reason enough to celebrate and we’ll be on hand at Geneva next month to bring you all of the details and plenty of live photos.
