The Porsche 981 Cayman GT4 has earned rave reviews since its launch, and many named it as one of the best new drivers' cars on the market at the time of launch. Only 50 GT4s were originally destined for the UK and each dealer's limited allocation immediately sold out, demand was far greater than Porsche could have first thought, so ultimately it was decided more would be allocated to the UK.
Engineered in Weissach, the car has elements of the new GT3 as well as the 918 - making the pedigree of the GT4 unquestionable. The 3.8-litre 6 cylinder mid-engined layout is coupled with rear wheel drive and 6-speed manual transmission, derived from the Cayman GTS. Performance figures are impressive too, with 385 bhp, a top speed of 186 mph and a 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds.
A limited-slip differential is fitted as standard and adjustable camber shims are offered to tweak the handling to the drivers’ taste. The chassis is what truly makes the GT4 stand out, due in part to the fact that many parts are derived from the fantastic 991 GT3, including the suspension, brakes, and electric steering system. Lap times around the Nürburgring have been incredibly fast, with a time of 7 minutes 40 seconds putting the car on par with the likes of the Audi R8 V10 and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
This well specified example of Porsche's heroic Cayman GT4 was delivered to its first owner, Mr Field of Redditch, on the 4th of December 2015 via Porsche centre Solihull. It is clear that the owner did not hold back with options when ordering the car, specifying the car with a vast number of options, including the desirable Clubsport package.
Presenting in Pure White over a black leather interior, the car is complemented by all the options desired by a Porsche enthusiast, much like the two owners of this car. On the exterior, the car is notably fitted with the hugely beneficial Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) which are fitted behind the gunmetal grey 20-inch wheels and yellow brake callipers.
Meanwhile, on the interior, the Clubsport package denotes the car with the all-important 918 bucket seats, and roll cage, meaning that coupled with the PCCB brakes, this car is ready for fast road or even track use. Additionally optioned on the interior is the tasteful Chrono pack, 6-point harness, contract red stitching, carbon fibre trim, Alcantara steering wheel, and fire extinguisher.
In the car’s early life, Mr Field would keep it in his car for just two months, before the car passed to its current keeper on the 11th of February 2016. During his ownership, the car has seen three services, and has been loving kept since, playing a regular attendee at Porsche Club Great Britain mini tours and meet-ups.
Most recently serviced in November of 2022, and having had two brand-new front tyres fitted just last month, this well-specified Cayman GT4 is accompanied by its spare key (of which appears to have never been used), original service book pack, and history folio, is available for viewing by appointment at our showrooms outside of London immediately.
