For every guy who loves Porsches but things having the engine at the back is wrong, the German automaker is working on something very special. This is the Cayman GT4 and it will unleashe all the untapped potential from one of the most balanced chassis in the sportscar world. Big brother Porsche 911 could be in big trouble!
We're familiar with the hot Cayman, since it's been parading up and down Germany's roads and the Autobahn all summer. But this latest set of spy photos shows the car completely without camouflage and sporting a production rear wing, built to the standards you expect of a modern Porsche.

Set to supersede the existing GTS model and take the place of the previous Cayman R, the GT4 is a track tool with license plates. As you can clearly see, it has been fitted with a much more aggressive body kit that includes a deep lip spoiler, air scoops to feed the brakes and a GT3-style vented front hood. As for the wheels, they seem to be borrowed from the 911 Turbo, though they'll likely be changed come production time.

In the powertrain department, the Cayman GT4 is holding the cards close to Porsche's engineering vest. We're really hoping that the full-sized 3.8-liter naturally aspirated mill from the 911 GTS will deploy into action, though even the "regular" 400 hp version from the Carrera S is a sufficient.

Unlike Porsche's more famous track tool, the GT3, this model will be available with both a manual transmission and a PDK. For the ultimate hot lap, the twin-clutch option is better, but Porsche's manual is probably the best in the sportscar business.

But the really scary part about the Cayman GT4 is not the performance, but the price. Considering a PDK-equipped GTS starts at over $80,000, this new model could push $100,000. For a Cayman? Ouch!
