Video Fahrbericht: Porsche Cayman GT4

The new Cayman GT4 is perfect for someone who wants a sporty, puristic car, like our test driver Klaus Niedzwiedz. Key, says Niedzwiedz, is the state-of-the-art mid-mounted engine found in today’s sports cars and Formula One racecars. Klaus admires the GT4’s whopping 385 horsepower and explains that its aerodynamic package provides down thrust, keeping the wheels firmly on the ground. That’s essential on a racetrack, and that’s where he is.
