- The same test mule was earlier spotted cold testing in the Arctic.
- The 718 GT4 will get the 911 GT3’s 4.0-litre engine.
- The GT4 will differ from the hardcore track-focused Clubsport variant of the 718.
Porsche has moved from the cold Arctic winter to the Nurburgring for its vehicle testing. The full-blown GT4 was spotted with minimal camouflage lapping the Nordschleife. The GT4 sits above the GTS in the 718 range and this new one has a new powerplant lurking in the engine bay.
The upcoming Cayman GT4 will replace the 3.8-litre motor of the older car with the 911 family’s naturally aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six engine. However, Porsche will detune the power output of the motor to be restricted to below 400bhp mark. This would allow the GT4 to be a step up from the GTS’ 350bhp, but it won’t enter the flagship 911 GT3’s territory.
Given the minimum camouflage, we could easily spot that the test mule had a split at the end of the front bonnet, similar to the 911 GT3. Apart from that, the front fascia had a restyled bumper with larger air dams. At the rear, there is a massive wing and aggressive diffusers with dual circular exhaust sticking out.
Since the test mule had little to no camouflage, Porsche might be prepping to reveal the all-new Cayman GT4 real soon. The new GT4 will be a lot more expensive than the car it replaces. It would be joined by the 718 Boxster Spyder which was also caught in its final testing stage at the Green Hell.
