Ever since Porsche introduced the Cayman to its lineup, one of its primary competitors hasn’t been a car from another brand, but its larger, more expensive sibling – the 911. Over the years the Cayman has continued to evolve, getting better and closer to the 911 with each iteration. And the latest version of the car might be the best yet.
It’s called the Cayman GT4 and it borrows a number of components from its 911 cousins. The engine is the 3.8-liter flat six from the Carrera S which makes 385 horsepower and will propel the GT4 to 60 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds. A 6-speed manual gearbox will be the only choice. It also gets a number of chassis tweaks, along with brakes from a 911 GT3 and unique, functional bodywork. MSRP is set to come in at around $85,000 in the US.
To commemorate the launch of the new model, Porsche has also released a short film which can be seen above. Once again, it appears this brand knows how to do sibling rivalry the right way.
