The Porsche Cayman GT4 has made its way onto local shores, alongside special Black Edition models of the 911 and the Boxster.

01 Oct 2015 | Local News : Singapore

Porsche has launched three latest additions to its model range in Singapore - the new Cayman GT4, the 911 Black Edition and the Boxster Black Edition.

The Cayman GT4's power is transmitted by a six-speed manual gearbox with dynamic gearbox mounts
This is the first time Porsche is introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman. The engine, chassis, brakes and aerodynamic design of the Cayman GT4 are configured for maximum driving dynamics; yet the top-of-the-range 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 385bhp, which is derived from the 911 Carrera S engine. As a result, the Cayman GT4 accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds, on to a top speed of 295km/h. The chassis - which is 30mm lower than a regular Cayman and features a generously sized brake system - consists nearly entirely of components from the 911 GT3.

From the outside, the Cayman GT4 is clearly differentiated from related mid-engine coupes. Three distinctive inlet openings at the front and a large fixed rear wing are part of an aerodynamic package, which is systematically designed for downforce.

The Black Edition models add a heavy dose of style, class, and character to the 911 (left) and Boxster (right)
Sport seats, upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara, are distinguished by very good lateral support and allow occupants to experience unfiltered driving enjoyment. The new GT4 sport steering wheel guarantees ideal control and direct steering feedback due to its compact dimensions.

On the other hand, the new Black Edition models heighten the iconic Boxster and 911's sense of fascination and aura of mysterious appeal and elevates them to even higher levels of desirability.

Dynamically elegant at first glance, with large air inlets, typical Porsche fenders, side air inlets behind the doors, and a slender silhouette, the new Boxster Black Edition is handsomely enigmatic. 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels, roll-over bars painted in black, door sill guards with the "Black Edition" logo, and an all-black interior all add to the stylishly intense character of the car.

Designed to be an instantly-attractive sports car that captures your attention and never lets it go, the 911 Black Edition speaks its own timeless language through the round head lights, fenders that are higher than the bonnet, and a tapering roof that leads to a well-developed rear. All painting a classy silhouette that is unmistakably 911.
