This Porsche Cayman GT4 Cop Car Is A Waste Of A Cayman GT4

/ Comments

It's been sentenced to a life away from the track.

On the one hand, we fully support law enforcement, but we're not always so wild about stuff like this. Jalopnik first reported on this lovely thing, a brand new Porsche Cayman GT4 that's been donated by the Lind Trust, a charity that aims to promote youth development in Norwich and Norfolk in the UK, to the Norfolk Constabulary. Despite being decked out in police livery, this one of just 2,500 examples will never see duty. Instead, it's merely a PR prop.

It won't be catching speeders (which is probably a good thing for some), but it will be showcased at local cars and coffee events as well as schools and colleges. So yeah, all of that luscious aero work designed specifically for the track won't be put to proper use here. That naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six with 385 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque will be mostly idle. "We hope the car will act as a conversation starter," stated Chief Constable Simon Bailey. "The GT4 will certainly attract a lot of attention – but that's the whole idea…this gives us the opportunity to engage with people, but more importantly those hard-to-reach groups like young drivers, and offer practical advice as well as describing what can happen when things go wrong."

The only thing wrong we see here is the fact that there's now one less Cayman GT4 causing hell on the track. It was pretty generous for the Lind Trust to donate the car, considering it's not exactly the easiest Porsche to buy due to its rarity, but also because it carries a base price of nearly $85,000.
