Porsche Cayman GT4 – Front End Paint Protective Film

What do you call a Cayman that handles better than a 911? A GT4.

The 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 is a hard car to explain, mainly because the regular Cayman, Cayman S and GTS are already some of the best handling cars for the money.

To consider the difference between, well, any Cayman and the GT4 is like comparing your high school crush to Jennifer Lawrence: you’d be happy with either, but… you know what I mean?

Around the fast-paced and lively track that is Philip Island, we went through the entire Cayman range, ending up in a $189,900 GT4 at the very end to find out just how good the latest car from Porsche’s motorsport division is.

Powered by the now superseded but still monstrous Carrera S 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine (with different induction manifold and injectors) that produces 283kW of power and 420Nm of torque, the GT4 can do 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds.

In a further 10.1 seconds, it will hit 200km/h.

The car is the first road-going mid-engined car from Porsche to wear a GT motorsport badge.

That is really saying something, and it’s a boost of confidence for how far the second-generation Cayman has come since the original first hit the market in 2006.

The GT4 is available with a six-speed manual gearbox only and, while it’s about 0.1 of a second slower to 100km/h than the Carrera S, it’s almost in a different league when it comes to mechanical grip.

While Porsche is adamant that it’s not just a collection of random bits stuck together, the GT4 certainly shares a reasonable number of parts with the hero GT3 car, such as a great deal of the front end in terms of suspension and brakes, as well as the steering and ABS systems.

This is excellent news, because the GT3 is an amazing machine. Nonetheless, there’s more to the Cayman GT4 that is unique to itself than there isn’t.

Its manual-only availability certainly hasn’t deterred any buyers either, of which there are already over 140 in Australia (roughly 50 percent more than the current Australian allocation).

When we were contacted about protecting the track-ready Porsche Cayman GT4, we didn’t hesitate to jump in and help him find decent film Installation. After all, wrapping this beautiful car with XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film was a pleasure mile. The coverage areas included a full front end (full hood, full fenders, front bumper, and mirrors), rocker panels and custom wing coverage. Dan is now ready to hit the road and the track.
