Our spy photographers caught the 718 Cayman GT4 prototype virtually undisguised in the cold weather conditions of northern Europe.
While the GT4 sits above the recently launched GTS in the Cayman line-up, we spotted a few differences between the two. For one, there’s a slit between the bonnet and the upper bumper which is similar to the 911 GT3. Plus, the front fascia of the GT4 shows off a restyled bumper that has larger air dams, aimed to aide cooling.
On the engine front, the new GT4 is expected to pack the 911 family’s naturally aspirated 4.0-litre motor, but in a rather de-tuned state. Sources estimate the new car to make at least 20bhp more than the outgoing car. Although this may not sound great, it will be coupled with some intensive weight loss measures, a tweaked suspension and upgraded brakes. The resultant package should essentially give the new GT4 an edge over the previous model, in terms of sheer agility and pace.
Since the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 prototype was caught with no camouflage, it could mean that the brand may be planning a debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month. Stay tuned for the details.
