New 2020 Porsche 718 GT4 982C revealed

Hottest Cayman gets naturally aspirated flat six derived from 911 Carrera 991

Porsche’s ultimate incarnation of its 718 Cayman model has been revealed with a naturally aspirated version of the flat six found in the current 911 Carrera family. Sharing a technical base with the Boxster-derived 718 Spyder 982 for the first time, the engine in the track-oriented 718 Cayman GT4 982C is derived from the turbocharged flat six found in 991.2 and 992 Carreras, albeit with a capacity increased to four litres and a maximum rev output of 8,000rpm.

Boasting a maximum power output of 420hp, the nat-asp GT4 features gasoline particulate filters, a feature it will share with the incoming 911 GT3 in 992 form. The Cayman’s engine underlines the dexterity of Porsche’s 9A2 engine family, though the 992 GT3 will feature a revised GT-oriented 4.0-litre flat six when it is announced at the start of 2020.
