The Porsche Cayman GT4 (981C) is a track-focused version of the Porsche Cayman (981C).
Introduced in 2015, the Cayman GT4 is based on the third-generation (981C) Cayman and uses a slightly de-tuned and revised variant of the Porsche 911 Carrera S (991)'s 3.8 L flat-6 engine.
The flat-6 engine produces 380 hp (283 kW) at 7,400 rpm and 310 ft·lb (420 N·m). The car is rear-wheel-drive and comes with only a six-speed manual transmission, making the GT4 the last street-legal track-focused car to have a naturally aspirated flat-6 engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission, as the 718 Cayman uses a new turbocharged flat-4.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 has a vented front bumper to improve cooling for the additional radiator, with a lower lip along with a fixed rear wing that provides downforce. The GT4 is 1.18 in (30 mm) lower in ride height than the regular Cayman and features upgraded brakes from the Porsche 911 GT3 (991), a limited slip differential combined with Porsche Torque Vectoring, and Porsche Active Suspension Management with 991 GT3-derived dampers. The chassis was also enhanced with a number of reinforcements.
The Cayman GT4 has a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h) and has gained rave reviews from magazines like Evo and the likes of Chris Harris.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 was added in the Porsche Update as a mid Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1323
- MAX rank: 1485 (+162)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1598 (+113)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +41
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 275
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/8/11
As of 2021 Summer Update, the Cayman GT4 is now a mid Class C car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1197
- MAX rank: 1371
- MAX+PRO rank: 1499
- Tuning Kit bonus: +46
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: +302
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/8.5/11.5
Even with its 25% upgrade rank weighting on nitro, it isn't as competitive as the Porsche 959 as the Porsche Cayman GT4's nitro is lower by up to 8.9 mph/14.3 km/h. Compared to the Audi R8 LMS Ultra, the Porsche Cayman GT4 has superior nitro efficiency while the Audi R8 LMS Ultra has faster acceleration.
This is the official review of the Porsche Cayman GT4 on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by ReV_Tez and published on June 20, 2017:
Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.953s (0.6 sec slower than the Mercedes-AMG GT3).
Perfect nitro duration: 12.903s
Triple nitro duration: 9.174s
French Guiana lap time: 1.05.076s
Final verdict: "The Cayman is a really great car to drive. Its excellent nitro duration provides the opportunity of playing single tanked in events allowing you to challenge and compete with strong players. Although it fits into the mid-category of class B, it performs very well and also offers 32 licenses in mastery!"
The Porsche Cayman GT4 is a poor choice for Multiplayer as any upgrade setup will put it in races with the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, none of which it can compete with.
