    No, it is for women:

    All the wings are a drag, the GT4 least so.  I would love to order my new GT3 and GT3RS without standing wings.

    Welcome to the wing-less club. Smiley Smiley

    I hate wings and believe it or not, I think a wing fits my R8 well and even the 911 GT3 RS but I would love to see a GT car without a wing because let's be serious, most of us don't drive to the track often and driving around with that huge wing often insinuates in people some prejudice many of us didn't deserve.

    Nothing beats a NA engine, but.... the new 718 Cayman with PDK (base version) accelerates faster than our GT4s!

    Not that I care but it is interesting to see how Porsche will approach the new 718 GT4. If they go the NA route, maybe they will use all these "tricks" to squeeze the 3.8 liter engine. We will see.

    what 3.8 Liter engine ? there is no N/A engine in production except for the 4.0......and that is a GT product - to expensive for a girliecar smiley

    It is interesting indeed.

    The next GT4 will have the same issue as the next GT3, but in contrast to the GT3 the competition to the GT4 is from within the brand itself with forced induction engines. I doubt the next GT4 will be NA, because that engine would need to be so heavily modified that it will push the price to GT3 level.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Autocar: "2017 Porsche 911 GT3 to get 4.0-litre flat six engine..." (...plus details on GT4 RS and GT2 RS...)

    Set to be revealed at the Geneva show in March, the 2017 911 GT3 will get a power increase to more than 500bhp, up from the 475bhp of its predecessor

    (18 January 2017)

    The new Porsche 911 GT3 that's due to be launched at the Geneva motor show in March will have a 4.0-litre flat six engine, according to a well-informed source close to the factory. It will not be the same 4.0-litre engine that's found in the current GT3 RS and 911 R, but an evolution capable of producing "at least" the same 500bhp and up from the 475bhp of the last ‘standard’ GT3.

    The main focus of the development work has been to improve further the durability of the engine, resulting in a motor that "has done thousands of kilometres, absolutely flat out, with no problems at all".

    As already speculated, the 991-generation GT3 will be available for the first time with a choice of a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. A plan to stiffen the suspension and make a much more hardcore product has apparently been dropped in favour of a more user-friendly set-up, in line with traditional GT3 thinking.

    Meanwhile, work continues apace on the forthcoming GT2 RS, which "should be ready by the end of the year", our source said.

    Initially Porsche engineers were looking for a massive power gain, even compared with the 612bhp of the original 2010 GT2 RS, but a plan to realise 700bhp was sidelined when it became clear the engine would need a water injection system to keep internal temperatures under control.

    Instead, engineers are believed to have settled on an output of around 650bhp, almost 90bhp more than the engine produces in the current 911 Turbo S. That would provide for a specific output of more than 170bhp per litre.

    Another source confirmed that this would be the last outing for the engine, which is based on previous-generation technology, and that the next Turbo would be based on the new flat sixes seen in the current 911 Carrera, S and GTS, but with an enlarged capacity.

    After the GT2 RS, the next GT model will be a Cayman GT4 RS ( Smiley ) complete with a 4.0-litre engine. So fast is the current four-cylinder Cayman S that Porsche officials privately concede that, if shod with an equivalent tyre, it would be as quick around the Nürburgring as the existing Cayman GT4, so a big performance leap is expected.

    Clearly it won’t have the full 500bhp-plus provided to the new GT3, but expect an output of at least 430bhp, a clear 50bhp rise over the Cayman GT4 and more than enough to establish a clear performance margin to lesser, non-GT Cayman models.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    A Cayman with the 4.0 l GT3 engine would be an extraordinary product but I wouldn't keep my hopes high. First, it would need to be a very limited model since it would actually be more exclusive than the 911 R. Second, why did Porsche not do this thing with the GT4 Clubsport? Also, the GT3 engine has never been in the Cayman or Boxster, so a lot of (new) development would be required since the Cayman is not the 911, even if the Cayman basically used 911 (not GT model) engines.

    Bottom line is: If such a car comes, it will be expensive as hell and/or very limited.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    i thought the GT3 engine would take significant (and expensive) changes to even fit into the cayman?

    again, why Porsche would do such a thing? 

     and they will have to charge a arm and a leg to break even with each car.

    they would just be better off offering a manual 991.2 RS
