Stuttgart Auto has announced the arrival of the new Porsche Cayman GT4.

The long awaited track focussed version of the ever popular Cayman is now available in Singapore, featuring a whole host of newly tweaked chassis and drivetrain parts. Amongst the highlights of the car are a 911 GT3 front suspension and a 911 Carrera S derived 3.8 litre flat-6 engine.

This latest iteration of the Porsche Cayman promises to deliver even more thrills out on the road; more so on track. Its Carrera S engine produces 385 PS at 7,400 rpm and 420 Nm of torque from 4,750 – 6,000 rpm. The mid-engine rear wheel drive layout of the Cayman has often been said to provide the best dynamic balance of any driveline layout, and building on that excellent platform the Porsche GT division has worked their magic to create an even more exciting sports car.

Another key feature of the Cayman GT4 is the manual-only gearbox. No PDK version will be made, and Porsche has decidedly answered the petrol-head’s call for a true driver’s car. Complaints about the 911 GT3 having only the PDK were clearly heard; Porsche has risen to the challenge of delivering a car that’s set to rock the automotive world.

The car has been reworked and lightened by the boys down in the dungeons of the GT division, and weighs in at only 1340kg. It features some additional bodywork compared to the regular Cayman, including a pronounced lower lip and a vented front bumper for additional cooling. The large rear wing is surely the centre piece of its nothing-short-of-artistry body.

The car is also lower by 30mm compared to the Cayman, and features some powerful 911 GT3 brakes fitted behind bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels in platinum colour. A sports exhaust system is also available on the Cayman GT4, ensuring aural delight as you get on the loud pedal.

Of course as with all Porsches, a whole host of options is available as well as customisation options to make the car truly personalised.

Also revealed at the launch were the 911 Carrera and Boxster Black Edition. These special edition models feature unique trim around the cars, including high gloss black lines and black paintwork.

The Cayman GT is available at Stuttgart Auto priced from $432,688 without COE. All nine units allocated to Singapore have been spoken for at the moment.
