A fan of Porsche’s 911 GT3, but would prefer something smaller? How about the Cayman GT4?

Power for the first-ever Cayman GT comes from a 3.8-liter flat-six derived from the engine pushing the 911 Carrera S along. A six-speed manual with dynamic gearbox mounts is the sole transmission available. Top speed is 183 mph, and zero to 60 comes in 4.2 seconds.

Braking, suspension and chassis components throughout the Cayman GT4 come from the 911 GT3, with ceramic composite brakes available as an option. Other features include extensive aero; leather and Alcantara bucket seats with optional carbon fiber composite; sport steering wheel providing direct feedback to the driver; and a Sport Chrono Package with Track Precision app.

The Cayman GT4 is set to bow at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show in March before heading into U.S. showrooms in July. The price of admission will begin at $84,600, plus $995 destination.

    Bless you Porsche for this wonderful gift. The Panamera, Macan, and Cayenne are easily forgiven with offering such as this.

    I'm so tempted by this car to launch me into my first sports car. I'm the perfect age to have others call this a mid life crisis, compensation for deficiencies and to maximize my show off nature. http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2015/02/sports-cars-arent-just-men-midlife-crisis/ serious note, my one week hesitation may damn me for ever to get a 2nd hand as the first year allotment is probably sold with 2016 supplies starting to dwindle. Hesitate for a few more weeks and I may even miss out on the 2017 (if even available). This GT4 defines all I want out of a sports car. My value oriented nature may even say the base Cayman with a few performance options is the perfect fit, but your inner "wants" will mean you want the best of this generation of Cayman. sucks to dream, YOLO is such a passé cliche but the inner want is drawing me to this car. It's so impractical but utterly desirable. Maybe I'm just tired of being so prudent all my life. who knows. I will be a road douchebag before I'm 50.
