2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 4.0 flat-six Power Review & Changes – Porsche’s sequel to the extraordinary Cayman GT4 is trapped finishing its final shakedown in winter season testing. We are huge supporters of the original, even passing it on an eCoty gong alongside the way, however with the most up-to-date 718 underwhelming thanks mostly to a humdrum powertrain, the potential customer of the 911 GT3’s engine resting under the car’s rear outdoor patio when it’s launched afterwards in 2018 is delivering expectations amounts skyward.
Whereby the Cayman/Boxster twins are involved, there was clearly usually the feeling that Porsche has presented them back for worry of showing up the 911. The outdated Porsche Cayman GT4 (and its Boxster Spyder equivalent) resolved this, as Porsche’s GT division finally used the dazzling chassis to full impact by instilling it with all the finest parts from Porsche’s catalog.
Exactly what can we anticipate with the 718 Cayman GT4? The indicators are excellent if you were actually expecting for the wail of a normally aspirated flat-six of 4-liter capacity and near 500bhp. In conditions of amounts, the Cayman will concede general power and performance numbers to the existing 911 GT3, but should not be too much out. Which transmission will likely be affixed continues to be a much more of an open concern.
The test car spotted in these pictures mixes new dual exhaust stores (a first for the Cayman/Boxster coupling) sat inside of a large diffuser directed to the change in powertrain compared to the standard 718. The front apron is also far more hostile than prior to, well-balanced out by a large piled wing on the rear outdoor patio. The exact same forged wheels from the prior GT4 also seem to be equipped even if this may change for the creation car.
Thanks to the unobtainable standing of Porsche GT items, the 718 Cayman GT4’s price-label is improbable to subject for most punters, but thanks to a much closer positioning to the now £112k 911 GT3, we count on the price to go above the £80k of the past one. We’ll be hanging around to see, and essentially notice, much more about the new GT4 and its Spyder relative afterward this year, with a Geneva 2019 uncover most likely.
