    Next Porsche Cayman GT4 to stick with naturally aspirated flat six...

    The new Cayman GT4 is expected to be powerful enough to wear RS badge; manual and automatic gearbox options

    It surely will! I wonder how Porsche will set the price level. If the .2 GT4 has the 4.0l engine and PDK transmission on par with the GT3 they cannot offer it for 60% of the GT3. But one of the success factors for the .1 GT4 was the attractive  price level and pricing it away from this customer segment would make little sense.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    The .2 GT4 won't have the same HP as the GT3 in inspire of the same engine, that will help with the price a bit, that said, I don't think the success of the GT3 was is pricing, I cooked be wrong but  they would have sold out just the same with a higher pricetag I think.

    No it won't, but detuned or not, it is a GT engine.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    One thing i have thought is why not stick the older 3.8 engine in from the 991.1 gt3 make its say 460bhp? I know they arent making the original 3.8 anymore but surely they could continue to make the gt3 one as they would have everything they need for it?


    Re: Cayman GT4

    From a production point of view it would be better to stick the new 4.0l but decrease the volume to 3.8l. Certainly more economic than keep producing the old engine in parallel with the new. Even better would be the 4.0l engine as is, but ECU detune. The additional development and production costs would be negligible over the GT3 engine and there is an economy of scale.

    The real question is the price tag. With a detuned 450hp 4.0l GT3 engine the car is on on par with a 3.8l 997.2 GT3 RS. I fail to see Porsche pricing such a car at 60% of a new GT3. If they do I am first in line indecision

    Re: Cayman GT4

    I still think that detune the 4.0 engine doesn't make sense from a Porsche perspective. Our GT4s used an off the shelf (almost) regular engine, which created the necessary gap with his big brother. Only an RS would make sense, IMHO

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Yeh it has to be an RS, remembee the GT4 to the GT3 on paper had a 90bhp difference. That means the new car cant be anymore than 410bhp. To retard the 4.0l that much seems crazy no?

    If it gets pdk and 450bhp its going to be insane!

    jamesdamanuk1:

    Andreas Preuninger has said many times that RS cars will always be PDK only as they are intended for track performance and manual would only make sense on the more road going regular GT versions. So if it's an RS version of the GT4, is going to be PDK only, if it's just going to be a normal GT4 then it may get a manual again.

    Good question and I'm dying to read the answer. Smiley

    One thing is for sure though: A street legal GT4 RS would be the hell of an investment. Smiley A very special car, especially if the production is limited (rumor).

    Re: Cayman GT4

    The problem is that I have information I can post and other information which I cannot post (two reasons for that: It hasn't been confirmed by a second source and/or the source has asked for not publishing it and I always keep my word). 

    Just be patient, guys: The information will leak eventually sooner or later. The GT4 RS, according to rumors, isn't without controversy at Porsche. Some people seem to think it is a mistake, others think it is pointless and would also devalue the Clubsport version (which isn't even street legal). One thing seems to be sure though: The Cayman needs a marketing push, so maybe this is going to be it. yes angry
