Porsche’s next-generation 718 Cayman GT4 was spied testing on public roads in Europe and it seems to be sporting quite the dirty backside. From the looks of it, that dirt is all the camouflage this mule has and we’re not complaining.
The more performance oriented 718 Cayman is showing off an aggressive from facia with some redesigned air intakes featuring extra vents and a more prominent splitter. If you look closely though the windows, you may even see a roll cage. Moving to the rear, we’re given a good view of an updated diffuser with exhaust tips on either side of the vehicle’s centre line, fixed wing, and what seems to be taillights borrowed from the 2018 GTS.
Though its powertrain remains hidden, we most likely won’t see a turbocharged flat-four hiding under that bonnet. In fact, CarScoops thinks the 718 Cayman GT4 may be getting a detuned version of the 911 GT3’s 4.0-liter six-cylinder unit. Rumored to be offered with a manual gearbox and optional PDK transmission, the new GT4 could deliver in excess of 400 horsepower.
Now the biggest question we have is when the next-gen GT4 will debut. With the lack of camouflage on this test mule, we can expect Porsche to officially reveal it in a few months.
