    Re: Cayman GT4

    Futch:

    In terms of value for money, I would say the GT4 and the Spyder are the best sports cars money can buy today.

    And I wouldn't change anything either, they're not perfect, but they're damn close.

    Smiley Well said. 

    I really envy you because you have so many cars to choose from. I would love to have such a collection but honestly, I wouldn't know when to drive these cars. 
    Please promise me that you will always drive these babies and have fun with them, not just looking at them but actually driving them. I am pretty sure you are one of the rare owners who actually do that. Smiley I just wish I would live near London, so I could actually see your cars live from time to time. 

    Enjoy in good health and keep those reports and photos rolling, I just love them. Thanks again!!! Smiley Smiley

    Btw: Almost got myself a used (pre-facelift) 2014 R8 V10 Plus with little mileage. Loved how the car looks and sounds but 105k EUR were a bit too much for a used weekend toy. I immediately thought of you and your car collection but I'm afraid my car "collection" has to stop at one weekend toy, the GT 500. Smiley Smiley

    Anybody seen this?  Looks like Porsche Centre Knokke in Belgium.  Wonder if this is a PAG kit.

     

    I looked into the Martini decals for my GT4, but they are too overused now. Boring.

    Yes, it does look like the 991 kit. It does not fit over/around the side intake.

     

    You are so right. They look excellent but yep - a bit overused!

    There are two or three of them at every track day here in Europe (ok, exaggerating a bit, but not much Smiley)

    Don't take it seriously it's just a nice little fun gift, at the least I got a little replica steering wheel to put in my office, even if I won't play the game.

    I guess I could understand not changing 2-6th if you just autobahn all day, but in the canyons, Sun is dreading 2nd just like earlier GT3s.  I note Chris Harris finds that the only fault.

    I do agree it's a decent value compared to Gt3, in NZ over $100k cheaper, and  Sun has measured himself for a new driving suit and dusted off the helmetSmiley

    Interesting to see that the front GT3 bumper and lights fits on the GT4 .

    Stunning, stunning, stunning!!!


    Re: Cayman GT4

    That's not actually a Cayman GT4 as I understand it. That's a Cayman built to GT4 category racing spec. 


    Re: Cayman GT4

    It looks like a GT4 to me. Same bodywork. Do you have further details?

    here you go, these guys built it :

    http://www.prosport-performance.de/motorsport/unsere-autos/porsche-cayman-981-sp

    Im Unterschied zu den Markenkollegen verzichtet PROsport Performance demnach auf einen Start mit der Rennvariante des Cayman-GT4-Modells, welche Porsche im März auf dem Genfer Autosalon der Öffentlichkeit vorstellt. „Wir haben unseren Wagen bereits in November 2014 bestellt, damit wir ganz sicher gehen für die Saison 2015“, begründet Chris Esser, Miteigentümer des Rennstalls, diese Entscheidung.

    Thanks! Unfortunately google translate makes it all about as clear as mud.

    Spyderidol:

    It's just what I read somewhere but I don't know where now! Why do you say same bodywork? The only part that is special to GT4 road car in that racing car is be side scoop. It has GT3 front and a racing wing that looks nothing like the road GT4 item. Also, it is PDK which tells me that this is built from a Cayman S or GTS. Shame the link doesn't tell us what motor is in that car.  

    In any case, this isn't the GT4 race car Porsche Motorsport is building. Can't wait to see that one. 


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Spyderidol:

    Thanks! Unfortunately google translate makes it all about as clear as mud.

    the article is from February 2015, before the presentation of the GT4. It says that the racing team didn't want to wait for the March 2015 presentation of the GT4-"race variant" (this sentence is misleading, I think what they meant by "race variant" is the base GT4 and not the Clubsport model which is yet to come), and they ordered their car in November 2014 to be ready...

    I believe no customer could have ordered a GT4 in November 2014, so their car must be based on a Cayman (S).
