    Re: Cayman GT4

    Rewatched the interview with AP in Geneva. He said he got the question regarding a GT4 RS many times during that day. The GT4 RS is one of the potential future projects, when they have capacity, but it has not green light as of now. Hence, he added, we should not expect a GT4 RS within the next year.

    Lets see when the spy pics start to appear indecision

    What would they charge for a GT4 RS with 4.0L motorsports motor and PDK-S?  Couldn't be too much less than GT3, right?

    They should charge the same price. You choose rear engine or mid engine smiley

    Not really fair, unless they give the GT4 a multi-link rear suspension and new gearing (which would be necessary anyway with a 9k rpm redline)

    Probably very close... Smiley

    This car would be unique though if they build it. Don't expect another one. Smiley

    Why not replace the gear sets in our current GT 4s first?

    Took a long time for the mules!  Will be interested to see if they use detuned 4.0 and how it's detuned...

    Re: Cayman GT4

    If the leaked info from that Australian dealer is correct it will get the 4.0l and have RS in the model name. Then again AP said in Geneva that the GT4 RS does not have green light and is at least a year away.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    I find it difficult to believe that 718 GT4 will have a detuned GT3 engine it .. but I guess that makes sense as there are no other naturally aspirated engines available. Surely would be cheaper to wind up the boost on a turbo 4 instead?

    however, isn't the 718 designed to take the turbo 4s? which means significant re-engineering of the engine compartment?

    It's worth keeping in mind that the GT4 RS will also homologate the next GT4 racer, so the 4.0 flat-six motorsport block is the logical engine.

    I'm sure you've heard that Porsche Motorsport have decided to use the naturally aspirated 4.0 flat-six for all GT racing, including the GT3 Cup, GT3 R and RSR...

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Yes, which most likely means a proper RS with a fitting price tag in the GT3 region.

    Does this car make sense anymore if the GT3 has a manual option?


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Why not?

    If they skipped the .2 GT3RS and only make a GT4RS instead?

    Nah, new Trofeo R would be a even faster tire.

    Agreed. No more bargains from Porsche (GT4 was really one). Does it really matter though? If Porsche gives the green light to a GT4 RS with 4.0 l engine, they will sell every single car they can produce.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    They will but by doing so Porsche also move away from offering a more affordable track car. The GT4 filled a niche which Porsche did not occupy. Do they already want to give that up? Hm.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Well, Porsche offer a lot of track cars, however, the are not called GT-cars or "limited edition" - they are called "base" or "S" or "GTS", .... I have to admit that I am currently fed up with Porsche and all these "extra bonus limited special whatever editions". I mean, Porsche cars, to me, are all special as one can use them on the track and on the road, you had a 997 S yourself (just as an example), however, nowadays, I feel like I have to "justify" why a drive a more or less "ordinary inferior" version of a model line-up and not one of these limited or extra editions, which we are presented more or less every month now from Porsche. Smiley

    Having said this, I am certainly interested in  a new GT4 RS and I am looking forward to the new beast (in white)...Smiley

    I could see both a GT4 (still affordable) and RS (faster and pricey)
