Is the powerhouse Cayman GT3 finally getting a successor? A recent leak on social media by a potential owner suggests that a track-spec Cayman GT4 is on its way to enter production. The said source already owns multiple Porsches, and has posted details of a phone call from his dealer on Instagram.
The dealer, according to him, allegedly confirmed that the Cayman GT4 will be announced in February next year, with deliveries starting some time during the summer.
Rumors have been rife about the Porsche Cayman GT4; most of them spy photographs of the car in disguise at Nürburgring. The photographs and accompanying reports suggest that the GT4 will pack a 3.4 or 3.8-liter engine and come with a huge rear wing, aggressive front splitter, very capable brakes, and a lower ride height than its original counterpart. Another welcome addition is said to be a choice between manual and PDK paddle shift gearboxes.
The most recent leak seems to have come from Porsche itself, but was pulled in a hurry.
The “GT4” in the name of the Cayman GT4 points towards certain weight-reducing measures in the upcoming supercar to further enhance performance. It may even come with an optional Clubsport pack as its predecessor, the GT3. The designer of GT3, Andreas Preuniger, will reportedly return to design its successor, which is a good news for Porsche fans, considering the rave reviews the GT3 received from enthusiasts and critics alike.
Needless to say, all these reports should be taken with a pinch of salt, as nothing has been officially confirmed by Porsche yet.
However, if the dealer’s time frame is to be believed, Porsche will give fans some concrete information soon.
