Naturally aspirated with 385hp from a 3.8-litre flat-six engine, taken from the Porsche 911 Carrera S, it’s simply a keen performer that propels the Cayman GT4 through the infamous North Loop of the Nürburgring in seven minutes and 40 seconds.
Much of the GT4’s aggressive looks don’t come from its gaping air intakes at the front, in fact much of the attention is directed to the rear, where the large GT-inspired wing resides as a sign of caution to all those who dare challenge it.
There’s never a moment of doubt when it comes to braking late into corners, especially with Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) that distinguishes itself with its yellow callipers that bite down on the cross-drilled rotors.
Stability is tantamount and there’s plenty of it thanks to much of the chassis originating from the 911 GT3, and after having been honed in test facilities and especially on racetracks. It simply inspires confidence in drivers with its impeccable handling characteristics and wills them on to try and test the car’s limits.
The dark Alcantara leather-clad interior helps to visually obscure the sportscar’s numerous distracting buttons to help keep the driver focused and alert in handling this race-like performance machine.
