    Re: Cayman GT4

    Just came back from a very warm and sunny Hockenheimring. Well, what can I say, it seems that many GT4s have been delivered recently. Within the many GT4s l was the only GTS. The owner's base seems to be very broad - one owner told me about all the improvments he already put into his car, with  GT3 cup parts and 200cells cat etc., etc, whereas another one was anxious that his GT4 may not be run in after 3000km on the speedo. I think that a lot of those guys actually replaced their potentially  envisaged GT3 with a GT4. Perhaps the GT4 has become something of a people's track  car and the GT3 is more  for the breed of motorsport professionals.

    Congrats Mikla, lovely spec!!!


    Re: Cayman GT4

    Many thanks to all of you who shared a few words! The car is truly special, even the lack of a proper GT engine doesn't prevent it. I am eager to run it in a give it full throttle.

    No, while the GT4 engine did not come with the same "motorsport" marketing package as the GT3 / RS, it actually has an engine which is used in motorsport Smiley

    Re: Cayman GT4

    oh, boy, as I said, had a great time in Hockenheim the past weekend and I am about to hate all GT4 owners, because you / they own them !!!  Smiley Smiley

    Good looking at stand still, great performance on the track, it just ticks the right boxes also financially. There was also a 911 R, but it seemed....., nobody really noticed / cared....so, what will I do ? Nothing, I will be enjoying my GTS further and will be happy to follow the GT4 crowd with  approx. a 5 sec delay each round. Some of the GT4 made a 2:05 min. average, I followed with 2:10 min ave. Smiley ...these cars are great track toys ...Smiley

    It comes in plain racing white, according to a certain someone here, the fastest color.

    I planned to wrap the car like how Porsche did it for their promotional pictures.

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Well, if you do that then the race suit will give you some stealth look - just imagine, you standing beside your car with the clubsport wrapping and suddenly, you are becoming invisible due to the matching colors of the race suit and the car...Smiley ... You surely have downloaded the clubsport app already, haven't you ? There are several design features you can play with and actually, this is how I decided on the stripes of my car...

    Which tires are you using?  If just street tires, going to semi-slicks like GT4 will help narrow the times Smiley

    Re: Cayman GT4

    Currently, due to the 2 year new car warranty still in place (up until 10/2016) I stick to the recommendations (235/35 20 and 265/35 20) from Porsche, which are P-Zeros N0 and N1 and Goodyear Eagle for the GTS. I know that I would narrow the times either by putting on more white on my car ... Smiley ... or changing to MSC2 etc. However, I would still have the gap in tire width at the rear, where you are on 285 as standard and I noticed that this is a big advantage when getting out of a corner. I had one GT4 "chasing" me (obviously the driver was not yet exploiting the total limit of his car...) in one of my stints and I was just able to increase the gap with a late breaking before a corner but this gap narrowed down again, when we exited the corner. Still, you see: I HAD SOME FUN !!! SmileySmiley
