    But the wing is better integrated with the overall shape of the car, compared to the previous generation.

     


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Any updates? Guessing goodwood reveal is still debut day? They're keeping this one well under wraps.

    Sorry I'm trying to get all the pictures in 1 post but my phone won't do it ?

    It's on Instagram. Enjoy . 


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Seems all is done. Only mystery is specific engine and why that has been so difficult to officially confirm at this late date is unfathomable.

    I’ll be at Festival of Speed but only on the first day (Thursday 4th July) unfortunately any unveiling’s normally occur on the prime days (Friday - Sunday)

    Porsche Cayman GT4 undisguised... (PistonHeads)

    (22 May 2019)

    With the reveal only a matter of weeks away, here's the GT4 shorn of all its disguise...

    Yep, fair enough: the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 is the worst kept secret in all of automotive, and has been strutting its stuff in front of any lens it can find for what feels like years. On track, on snow and on road, there aren't many places it hasn't been seen. But the extensive testing, and fervent following of that testing, has been for good reason: the 981 GT4 was sensational, and this version needs to be at least the car that was. We want it to be good, Porsches needs it be good - hence the constant papping.

    Seeing the car as it will look in the showroom has revealed no great surprises, though the opportunity to look at a car blemished only by tape and bugs remains an exciting one. Points of note here are the chunky rear wing, a noticeably different front end to a 718 - see the vents on the trailing edges, the chunkier intakes and the more aggressive front diffuser - plus new daytime running lights. This particular car is also sporting the ceramic brakes and what could be a Clubsport-spec half cage, this one potentially tasked with setting a Nordschleife lap time. The last car recorded a 7:40, a time Porsche will expect to beat at some point.

    Given the work that has gone into making the 4.0-litre flat-six in the 911 Speedster Euro6d compliant, it would have to be assumed that that engine will power the GT4 and upcoming Boxster Spyder. Using a bit of logic - first time for everything on PistonHeads - we'd expect the GT4 to have 410hp. There or thereabouts. The GT3 gained 25hp in the swap from 3.8-litres (albeit a different engine) to 4.0-litre, and applying that to the old GT4's 385hp gives a figure comfortably beyond 400hp and a nice, round 100hp less than the Speedster engine.

    Otherwise, there really is nothing else left to say. Honest. The speculation, conjecture and guesswork has been exhausted - all that's left now is to see the car. Sources suggest it'll be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, which isn't far off now. Whenever it may be, there's a lot of people keen to hear more - and see it in a colour other than black...

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Most probably a new 6 cylinder engine, WTLP certified, that could be used in the new Cayman 6, Spyder and GT4. An evolution of the current Spyder/GT4 engine. What else may cause such a delay? A bespoke engine for the GT4 only doesn't make sense financially.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    6-cylinder NA or turbo?

    If NA that would be very special since there are no NA models except for GT3.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    I share your view - Any NA 6 cyl. engines would not make sense, since "they" would want to use them appearantly for quite a number of variants and I doubt that economies of scale would justify such another engine line-up...wait and see...(...btw, I am getting a GT3 killah next week as a loaner..., hmmm, again, wait and see...)

    Re: Cayman GT4

    NA 6 for the GT4, there will also be a regular 718-6.

    Think 914 line for the 718 line

    In Austria we say „this Tuesday“ for the coming and „next“ for the following. My mistake Smiley

    Re: Cayman GT4

      The GT4 must be the mule that has been the longest on the road ....... about 2 years .

    I saw the car with nearly  with no camo driving around the Manthey factory at the Ring last September already  ......
