New member of the GT family at Porsche.Sime Darby Auto Performance introduces the new Cayman GT4 in Malaysia.
Johor Bahru. Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), the importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, launched the new Cayman GT4 on the 5th November 2015, at the Johor Premium Outlets, Johor.
The new member of the Porsche GT family is the Cayman GT4. This is the first time Porsche is introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman which has components of the 911 GT3. A lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds on the North Loop of the Nürburgring positions the Cayman GT4 as the new benchmark at the top of its market segment. It also makes a clear statement that Porsche will continue to promote radical two-door sports cars in the future – sports cars that are developed at the Motorsport department in Weissach.
“The Cayman GT4 is the most powerful model in the Cayman model range and features motor sports-orientated technology that allows it to offer exceptionally high levels of performance potential and emotional driving pleasure,” said Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of SDAP.
The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the top model still retains the versatility and everyday utility that are typical of the two-seat Porsche coupe. It is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine with 385 hp (283 kW), which is derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. Its power is always transmitted by a six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts. The Cayman GT4 accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds; its top speed is 295 km/h.
The base price for the new Cayman GT4 starts from RM 840,000 which includes a 4-year warranty. The price stated includes all applicable duties but excludes registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
