2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 exterior
What Porsche tried to achieve with the Cayman GT4 is to make it stand out compared with all of the non-GT vehicles. They have did well in incorporating all the needed features of a performance vehicles and stayed true to the traditional look, but also managed to squeeze in a load of updates to make the car a new and modern one. The firstly noticeable addition is the GT wing added to the back which enables the stability at greater speeds and also provides a cool unique look for the Cayman. The front bumper receives some larger air inlets and a chin spoiler to boot. All of these additions account for providing down force to stabilize the car at large speeds and make the handling better.
The ride height of the car has also been dropped. The 2018 Cayman GT4 has a height of 1.2 inches dropped compared to the previous vehicle. This actually fits well with the low set tires and snuggles them very appropriately continuing this look. Overall speaking the design of this 2018 model does not deviate that much from the original design, except for the added wing of course. The car has been beefed up which is the most appropriate description of the change the car has gone though.
