Porsche will make a double world premiere in Geneva next week. We have seen the first car that is going to be officially presented and it is the Cayman GT4. The second model however is covered in mystery, since there is no word or even a teaser about it. The only thing that the company said is that it will be "another exceptional Porsche" that is destined to bring new standard in terms of performance.
And does this mean that actually the company is enjoying making high-performance vehicles suitable for everyday driving? Inarguably yes! In addition these two debuts speak of something like tradition which Porsche has established. We talk about the fact that it always introduces motorsport-bounded vehicles in Geneva.
Take for instance the 911 GT3 and 919 Hybrid. We have witnessed their birth in the Swiss city in the previous years. Now it is time for the Cayman GT4 to do the same. In fact this is the first high-performance sports car from the GT family based on the mid-engine coupes.
The model already made an impressive Nürburgring track debut by achieving a lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds on the North Loop. The main responsibility for this should be attributed to the 3.8-liter engine that has the capability of 385 hp (283 kW) and is a derivative of 911 Carrera S' unit.
In addition, what differentiates the new Cayman from the others in its family are the new front featuring lowered front spoiler, the additional hood air outlet and the rear wing. These elements all contribute towards better downforce at both axles.
Still, our mind is taken by the thoughts of this mysterious model and we can't wait to know more about it. Do you have any suggestions?
