Porsche's GT division chief Andreas Preuinger has shed some light about the company's plans regarding future GT-badged models.
Speaking to Car & Driver, Preuinger said the recently unveiled Cayman GT4 will be limited to 1,800 - 2,500 units as a method to keep the brand exclusive and "always leave 'em [customers] wanting more." He went on to specify that a manual gearbox was the foundation upon which the Cayman GT4 development kicked off and they want to keep it alive for future Porsche GT models, including the 911 GTs.
It seems there won't be a GT2 version of the current 911 generation since Porsche believes the new 911 GT3 RS will be able to fulfill this role. Moreover, the Macan and Cayenne will not receive the GT treatment as Preuinger believes GT-badged models "should have motorsport siblings", adding that the Cayenne GTS is "GT enough."
As a final note, Porsche's GT division boss also said there won't be all-wheel drive versions of the company's GT models, even though BMW's M branch will soon offer an optional xDrive on fully fledged M models.
