Porsche is really pushing the limits on this car. According to an article by Steve Sutcliffe from Evo Magazine UK, Porsche admits the GT4 won’t make much money. And if you look at the hardware, you can believe so - Porsche’s GT team has opened up their treasure vault for the 718 Cayman GT4. Under its skin, you get the steering, brakes, and suspension from the 911 GT3, just minus the rear-wheel steering system – fair enough omission.
To commit even further, they’ve created a bespoke engine for the 718 Cayman GT4. Although the engine started as the 9A2EVO engine from the 992, Porsche's GT Team made a myriad of changes to suit this car. It wasn’t simply just taking off the turbos and increasing its capacity. To play at the world class level, hard work is a given, but working smart is more important. There were many Specific Decisions made to cater to the GT4. Just like a coach planning their winning strategy with the team in the locker room.
