Porsche is currently building an entry-level GT racer based on the Cayman and prepared to fit the GT4 regulations.

Autosport reports that the German manufacturer has tested a racing version of its Cayman coupe that will sit below the 911-based GT3 Cup, GT3 R and RSR. “Not everyone wants 600 bhp, lots of downforce and a car costing 500,000 EUR (632,000 USD). We have had a look to see if there is something we could do below that for our customers”, outgoing Porsche Motorsport boss Hartmut Kristen has told the magazine.

As reported before, a road version of the Cayman GT4 is also expected. It could receive a flat-six 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine developing somewhere in the region of 450 HP (331 kW).
