Porsche Cayman RSR race car gets rendered

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you see a mid-engined European sports car? Well, that depends on who you are talking to. Some will look at it as a piece of art, while others would see as an opportunity. An opportunity for what, you ask? Well, an opportunity to imagine something even greater.

In this case, it was Arian Shamil who sought to render something he called the Porsche Cayman RSR. And upon hearing that, we can’t help but think that it has a clear reference to the 911 RSR.

Yup, the 911 RSR that, without a doubt, is the fastest and most mind-blowing production 911 ever built - with a 4.0 liter naturally aspirated flat-six ahead of the rear axle. As for performance, it can chase its 9500 rpm redline like that of a 510 horsepower, race tuned flat six. This does not even have turbos that will soften throttle response.

Norfolk citizens welcome their fastest police car yet - the Porsche Cayman GT4

Any of the Constabulary police enforcers at Norfolk, England will be scrambling to be the lucky chap to get behind the wheels of the newest member of their family - the speedster Porsche Cayman GT4.

Earlier this month, the police force of Milan had been happy chaps when they welcomed to their homestead the Ferrari 458 Spider which can run at a whopping 320 kmh. It was confiscated from a mobster of a syndicated gang and was turned over to the Milan police. It’s indeed tempting to bring the sports car out to shred the roads of Milan, with the supercar made to accelerate straight to 200 kmh in less than 10.8 seconds.

However, the Ferrari 458 Spider will not be able to do this publicly. Instead this superior speedster will be used as sort of an ambassador to be used for programs of education in the field of legality. Now it seems the newly acquired super car of Norfolk will follow suit. Donated for 2 years by Lind Trust, a charity organization that supports the development of young teenagers in Norwich and Norfolk, the Cayman GT4 will be utilized as a public program apparatus - meaning the GT4's main purpose is to engage and socialize with the citizens of Norfolk regarding road safety.

Australian Porsche dealer leaks Cayman GT4 RS arrival through Instagram post

Just recently, it was speculated that a new Porsche Cayman GT4 RS is coming. There is no official confirmation yet from the German sports car maker, but the arrival of the 2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 RS was inadvertently revealed.

How do we know that a new vehicle is coming? The most reliable information would be an official announcement from a carmaker. Their officials and executives could also drop a big hint over the new offering. In addition, insiders could also provide vital information over an upcoming vehicle. Spy images of new vehicles also serve the purpose.

Dealers could also be the source for information about new and yet-to-be-announced models. At times, they hold private presentations to a select group of clients who they believe are likely buyers of the new vehicle. During these presentations, sneaky clients could take some pictures and leak them.

7 Porsche Cayman GT4s Damaged in Germany Are Headed to Junkyard

Just recently, an accident happened at the Autobahn involving two private vehicles and two trucks – with one carrying seven Porsche Cayman GT4 units. The incident, which happened near Dortmund, Germany, has resulted to injuries both on the passengers and the vehicles.

According to reports, the transporter was hit from behind by another truck while traversing the Kamen area of Dortmund. The transporter was forced to break because of the traffic but the dutch lorry that was following it closely from behind failed to hit the breaks. The latter then crashed into the rear end of the transporter. To make things worse, another car in an adjacent lane that swerved to avoid the two trucks unfortunately got entangled with another car. All four vehicles were blocking the entire autobahn causing heavy traffic affecting all the motorists. The road had to be closed.

There were no casualties in the said accident but the drivers had injuries and had to be admitted to the hospital for treatment. The injuries did not stop there, though. It’s most unfortunate what happened to the seven Porsche Cayman GT4s that were quietly sitting in the transporter.

Porsche AG revealed that starting 2016, its models will be undergoing changeovers. The first of these changes will be the naming of its two-door mid-engine sports cars as the 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman. The 718 numerical designation is a nod to the trailblazing sports car of the same type in 1957.

Both the 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman have a number of similarities technically and visually. The Stuttgart-based automaker declares that the two models will later have turbocharged four-cylinder flat engines. The main difference between the two is that the Roadster will be more expensive than the Coupé.

This is the standard practice of the brand like with its 911 models. The two models will be introduced in the market within 2016. Porsche is well-known for its sports cars and the utilization of the four-cylinder concept. This long history is continued with the 718 series.

Porsche has unveiled its latest racing-only sports car at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show – the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport. This not-for-the-road mid-engine sports car is derived from the street-legal Cayman GT4 sports car, both sharing the same engine – a 3.8-liter flat-six powerplant that develops 385 hp (283 kW). This engine is placed directly behind the driver's seat.

The racer weighs just 2,866 pounds (1,300 kilograms). The Cayman GT4 Clubsport, however, comes with a modified six-speed Porsche double clutch PDK transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel. It also features a mechanical rear-axle locking differential that is developed exclusively for racing purposes.

It inherits its lightweight strut front axle from the 911 GT3 Cup racer and its improved lightweight rear strut suspension with transverse arms from the 911 GT3 Cup. Its brake system is developed for racing as well, with large 15-inch (380-mm) steel brake discs. Six-piston and four-piston aluminum calipers are fitted on the front and rear wheels, respectively.

The Porsche GT family just got a little bigger as the German manufacturer introduced the all-new Cayman GT4. According to Porsche, it is for the first time when they are introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman, which features components of the 911 GT3. What’s even more interesting is that the Cayman GT4 is able to lap the Nurburgring in just 7 minutes and 40 seconds.

Under the hood, there is a 3.8-liter flat-six petrol engine that produces 385 hp (283 kW), derived by the 911 Carrera S engine. As a result, the Cayman GT4 is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, while top speed is 295 km/h or 183 mph. Fuel consumption is 10.3 l/100 km.

The first visual impact with the vehicle shows that this is no ordinary Cayman as it features three inlet openings at the front as well as a large fixed rear wing.

Porsche is planning to consolidate output of its Boxster and Cayman sports cars at its main plant in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart after deciding to use parent Volkswagen Group's Osnabrueck site as an overflow facility for Cayenne production. Starting next summer, VW’s Osnabrueck site will produce 20,000 Cayennes annually to relieve pressure on Porsche's Leipzig site.

The Osnabrueck site currently produces some Boxster models when the Zuffenhausen plant is overloaded. According to Porsche, it will make over EUR400 million ($546 million) in investment at Zuffenhausen, which also builds the 911 and 918, to pave way for additional Boxster and Cayman production.

Uwe Hueck, chief of Porsche's works council, said in a statement that all two-door Porsche models will be built at the carmaker’s Zuffenhausen site in the future.

We already know that Porsche is preparing a successor of the Cayman R, dubbed the Cayman GT4. What we didn’t know is that the upcoming Porsche Cayman GT4 will get the 3.8-liter twin-turbo boxer engine that will generate around 450 hp. This means that the Cayman GT4, will get the same engine that powers the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo.

As a result, the vehicle will also receive extra cooling vents, lightweight alloy wheels, centered exhaust pipes as well as a more efficient braking system. In addition, the Cayman GT4 will get a new rollcage in order to protect its passengers even better.

Regarding the design, we expect a new body kit but also a big rear wing. In the Porsche 911 (991) Turbo, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine delivers 520 hp and can push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, while top speed is limited at 318 km/h (197.5 mph).

Back in December, German media reports said that Porsche will introduce a 911 Safari Concept at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show. As you may know already, the concept didn’t appear at the Chinese auto show, which means that was just a rumor. Until we will finally see the 911 Safari, X-Tomi Design decided to shows us how a Porsche Cayman Safari will look like.

Honestly, we were impressed by this rendering and although it is not official, we admit that we would love to see a production version of this sports car. As you can see from the photos, the new vehicle comes with plastic body mouldings and an aluminum front underbody protection.

We imagine this vehicle powered by the standard flat six 2.7-liter boxer engine that generates 275 hp (202 kW), which will push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds when using the seven speed PDK.

If you think that a Porsche Cayman is not suitable for you and want something even more special, the Studiotorino Moncenisio is the car for you. Based on the Porsche Cayman S Type 981, the new sports car is a tribute to Italian motor sports, the Susa-Moncenisio race a.k.a. the first hill-climb competition in the world.

For those who don’t know, the first race at Susa-Moncenisio took place on July 27, 1902 and was won by Vicenzo Lancia in a Fiat 24 hp. So, if you want a piece of history, you’d better hurry up as Studiotorino will only build 19 units of the Moncenisio coupe, each priced from 145,000 euros.

Still, the price is in addition to costs incurred by the client to provide and deliver the vehicle that wants to be transformed. The vehicle you see in the photos is dedicated in memory of Francesco Stola, father of Alfredo Stola, the founder of Studiotorino.

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.

The new four-cylinder engines for the Porsche Cayman and Boxster will not just improve their fuel economy but also allow them to handle and brake more efficiently. Porsche is following the auto industry’s trend in trimming engine size. The offering of new four-cylinder engines also marks a return to its roots. The German sports car maker offered a flat-four engine from 1938 to the mid 1970s.

Porsche also offered inline four-cylinder engines into the 1990s. The new engine being prepared for the Boxster and Cayman will be based on Porsche's classic six-cylinder engines. They will also be part of a modular engine strategy – which entails using common manufacturing lines with the four- and six-cylinder engines sharing many parts, resulting to lesser cost and complexity.

“We will continue with the downsizing strategy and develop a new four-cylinder boxer engine, which will see service in the next-generation Boxster and Cayman,” Porsche chief executive Matthias Muller told Auto Motor und Sport magazine in an interview. “We will not separate ourselves from efforts to reduce carbon dioxide.” Muller suggested that the new four-cylinder boxer engine would provide “up to 395 hp.”

Both models are using the the 3.4-litre engines from the Boxster S and Cayman S and thanks to optimized fine tuning, the power was increased by 15 hp (11 kW). As a result, the Boxster GTS now has an output of 330 hp (243 kW), whilst the Cayman GTS delivers 340 hp (250 kW). Meanwhile, torque increased by 10 Nm in each model.

Regarding the top speed, the Boxster GTS achieves a speed of 281 km/h (174 mph), while the Cayman GTS gas a top speed of 285 km/h or 177 mph.
