    Re: Cayman GT4

    jamesdamanuk1:

    So will there be 2 models a GT4 and an RS?

    I heard rumors of a GT4 RS but not GT4. Maybe one and the same car?

    A GT4 RS makes more sense because people are willing to pay big bucks (in the 991.1 GT3 price range...) for such a car. A GT4.2 would be more expensive than the first one indeed but would you pay over 100k base price for one? I doubt it.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    An RS with things like fromt axel lift ect would be good, surely it will be 991.1 gt3 performance?


    Re: Cayman GT4

    So far everything seem to point to a GT4 RS which will be close to GT3 performance and price. It would be a shame if Porsche price themselves out of the GT4 niche by not offering a base model anymore. The .1 GT4 was a fresh wind in the ever more over performant and over priced models. The modern take on the 968 CS.

    The GT4.1 was an amazing offer. It would be great to see another one but judging by the possible high demand for a GT4 RS, I do not know if there is even enough production capacity for a GT4.2 (non RS) model as well.

    Cayman needs a marketing push, so maybe this is going to be it. yes angry

    I totally agree that the 718 needs a marketing push, but I don't see how making a limited model with NA 4.0L Flat-6 helps them sell 2.0L and 2.5L 4-cylinder turbo models Smiley

    Better "awareness" of the Cayman in the public? Many don't have a clue about the tech used, they see a Cayman 718 here and a Cayman GT4 RS there and make a connection.

    I'm sure there can be some of that, but I also think there is a risk of making the 4-cyl versions look even worse by comparison to a GT4RS (some magazines will say how great the NA Flat-6 is compared to the disappointing turbo Flat-4, etc...).

    Although I would probably not buy one, I think making a 420hp Flat-4 GT4 that laps the Ring in under 7:30 would help the 718 image more...

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Hm, I think a NA flat 6 in the RS will be a negative marketing for the turbo flat 4 in the 718.

    Make a Turbo-4 that beats 991.1 GT3 around the Ring or return the Boxster/Cayman to Flat-6 (3.0L Turbo from Carrera or NA)...

    Stop treating it like the little brother of the 911. Let is grow up, put a proper engine in it, stick wider tires on it and stop that elegant sleek design. Sales fixed. The .1 GT4 is the proof for that.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    You mean, it isn't the little brother? So it's the cousin? Or a friend instead? 

     

    Maybe Porsche will skip everything and do a GT4 RSR race car instead smiley

    Re: Cayman GT4

    I hope AP comment's about all RS being only PDK will be relieved and that Porsche will offer all models with a choice of manual or PDK .

    Hurting the 911 would be the biggest mistake Porsche could make and you know that. Not going to happen, Porsche needs to tread carefully here. The 911 is the icon, the Cayman isn't.

    I am no marketing expert, I don't have a clue but apparently Porsche seems to keep the Cayman at distance for a reason. Yes, this may be a mistake but an even bigger mistake would be to devalue Porsche's cash cow (not only from a sales perspective) 911. Just my two cents, I could be wrong.

    The 911 is probably another reason the "960" is still in the clouds...which is very sad because Porsche urgently needs such a car in my opinion.

    Produce 50 Cayman GT4 RS, with the latest 500 HP GT engine and make sure I get one. I am sure that will not hurt 911 image. Problem solved Smiley

    Two year birthday celebration with the small service done today. Two technical service bulletins got resolved too:

    • A new type of engine air intake mesh to keep out leaves and little children from being sucked in
    • New shiny black exhaust tips (no idea why those were changed)

    No GT4 pics. No manly pics either. Unless you make the connection between the moon and NASA. Amazing scenery this weekend in the mountains close to Gstaad, Switzerland. Enjoy!
