Porsche will debut new Cayman GT4, Boxster RS Spyder within three years

Article by Christian A., on May 11, 2014

Porsche has just introduced the Cayman GTS, which is the most powerful model of the entry-level coupe, but it appears that the German manufacturer is still considering a hardcore version of its sports car. Dubbed Cayman GT4, the new Porsche will arrive in the next three years and it will be more powerful but also more expensive as it will be comparable to the 911 GT3.

The GT3 currently costs $125,000 but according to our sources the new coupe will bring many features found on the more powerful model. As a result, the Porsche Cayman GT4 will come with a transmission similar to the modified PDK found on the GT3.

The engine that will power this model remains the big question mark because if everything goes well at this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, the new Cayman GT4 will receive four-cylinder plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Still, if Porsche sees some problems with the engine that powers the 919 Hybrid Le Mans car, then the Cayman GT4 will receive a flat-six with hybrid assist. Porsche will also offer a hardcore version of the Boxster and this one is expected to be called the RS Spyder.

So, if you can’t wait until Porsche will unveil these new models, you can buy the GTS versions of the Cayman and Boxster. Both models are powered by a 3.4-liter engines delivering 330 hp (243 kW) on the Boxster GTS and 340 hp (250 kW) on the Cayman GTS.

Bolted to the optional Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) and using Sport Plus option, the Boxster GTS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, while the Cyman GTS is a tenth of a second faster.

Top speed is 281 km/h (174 mph) for the Boxster GTS and 285 km/h (177 mph) for the Cayman GTS. In Germany, the Boxster GTS costs €69,949 while the Cayman GTS is priced from €73,757.
