Porsche has unveiled the high-performance GT model of the Cayman sports coupe. The Porsche Cayman GT4 is the first company model which is being based on the mid-engined, two-seat Cayman coupe. The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the top model still retains the versatility and everyday utility that are typical of a Porsche.

Sharing components and genetic spirit with the iconic 911 GT3, a lap time of 7 min 40 sec around the Nürburgring Nordschleife places the Cayman GT4 emphatically as the new benchmark at the top of its market segment. It also makes a clear statement that Porsche will continue to promote radical two-door sports cars now and in the future - sports cars that are developed at the company’s Motorsport department in Weissach. The body is lowered by 30 mm versus the standard Cayman, and features a purposefully-proportioned brake system. Furthermore, the chassis has been comprehensively fine-tuned with many components shared with the 911 GT3. Inside the cabin, it has a universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity, air conditioning, Porsche Stability Management (PSM), and a Porsche Vehicle Tracking anti-theft system.

Mechanically, it is powered by a mid-mounted, 3.8L, flat-six engine which pumps out a thumping power of 385 bhp at 7400rpm. This engine also does duties to company's 911 Carrera S model. Its power is transmitted by a standard six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts - there is no PDK transmission option. This translates in to acceleration from 0-100kmph in 4.4 seconds; top speed is 295kmph. Also, the sportscar despite being so brisk and agile, comes up with a decent mileage of 9.7kmpl. The Cayman GT4 goes on sale in Porsche Centres in the UK and Ireland from today. It is priced at £64,451 (Around Rs. 60 Lakhs), and will celebrate its world premiere in March at the Geneva International Motor Show. First customer deliveries are scheduled in the summer.
