    Re: Cayman GT4

    1444064119134image.jpegDriving over Grand Saint Bernard Pass was spectacular today (France, Switzerland, and Italy).  Best mountain drive ever.  Relaxing in Spa at Pre Saint-Didier now - beyond fun.  This is view from my room:

    Grant : Bernard is nice to do but not , by quite some margin , the best pass around here. 

    You would not believe your eyes if you do the Susten , Nuffenen and Grimsel. All can be done one after the other ! Glad you are having a good time !

    There will be three versions of the car. 

    From Club Sport to Professional Racing.

    The gearbox is PDK.

    Tack! It will be interesting to see which PDK gearbox and gear ratio they have put in the car.

    Yes, it appears to only be race versions in all the articles I have read. Dual clutch for race wins, manual for face grins Smiley

    I wonder if the 385hp is a coincidence or are they using the "normal" GT4 engine? Does this mean the GT4 is the only Porsche model which actually has an engine used in Motorsport? SmileySmiley The 991 GT3 Cup still has the Mezger right? Smiley

    No road.

    What I know is that it is a 3.8 litres engine.

    Very exciting indeed Smiley Unless this race car completely flops this initiative should mean a lot for the coming GT4 generations. Maybe the rumours that the GT3 is being phased out are true?! Although I find them hard to believe.

    After reading the, admittedly somewhat sparse, information about this new GT4 race version it does not sound like it is significantly different than the street version. 40kg less interior fluff and sound deadening, the front GT3 suspension upgraded to it's Cup counterpart and a PDK gearbox. The rest (engine, rear differential, rear suspension, etc.) appears to be the same. This simply points to the fact that the street version is already a worthy track car and that Porsche Motorsport had the race initiative in mind when designing the street version.

    People have been tracking all variants of 911 over the years, they are sports cars after all. Same for Boxsters and Caymans. Even the current GT3 engine is derived on the new engine designed to work with PDK...

    Yes, of course. So have most of us, myself included. My point was simply that there appears to be a relatively small difference between the GT4 street version and the GT4 race version.
