Next Porsche Cayman GT4 won’t go turbo, will keep manual transmission

first_imgCreated with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS RELATED Porsche sticking by manual transmissions until the very endThe current Cayman GT4 uses a 3.8-litre flat-six engine, while the more pedestrian 718 Caymans waft along with a variety of turbo-fours. Which engine will actually power the Cayman GT4 is a mystery, but a 4.0L version making about 400 horsepower is a likely guess.Preuninger also stated the Cayman GT4 – only available with a manual transmission – might come with Porsche’s dual-clutch PDK transmission as an option in the name of choice. Of course, if you’re cool, you stick with the manual. “That’s the aim, to always have choice. Now we’ve started that strategy and it pays off,” he said. “I think it’s the right thing to do – who are we to tell people what’s best for them? Depending on what you want to do with the car, it can be perfectly understandable to go for a manual if you’re not chasing times on the track.” Buy It!

F. Porsche AGPorsche Cayman Porsche has recently turbocharged nearly its entire fleet of vehicles – every Macan is turbocharged and every 718 Cayman and 911 has a turbo, except for the 911 GT3 and Cayman GT4.These models have stayed resolutely naturally aspirated among their turbocharged peers, and a statement to Car and Driver from GT development boss Andreas Preuninger says that formula will continue for future Cayman GT4s.“Natural aspiration is one of our main selling propositions. We offer a car for people who want to feel something special, who want to have as much emotion as possible, as much throttle response and immediacy from a sports-car engine,” he said. “And at Motorsport, we think that can be achieved a little bit better with a [naturally aspirated] high-revving engine than any kind of turbo.” Trending Videos ‹ Previous Next ›last_img read more
