The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 is highly anticipated in one way or the other. Besides the fact that it is a Porsche, its latest developments and updates are exciting and interesting at the same time. It is reported to be more powerful than ever, which is enough to make industry experts and enthusiasts thrilled.

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 as it has been spotted not too long ago at Nurburgring showcased its power and capabilities. The mule that has been spotted possessed more aggressive aero kit with large rear wing and cross-drilled brakes. It also has extensions to the wheel arch lips.

Also, as per Andreas Preuninger, director of special projects at Porsche, he said that the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4's natural aspiration is considered one of the best selling points of the car. It is powered by 4.0-liter flat six, which is used in 911 GT3. The motor is capable of 368kW and 460Nm of torque.

The upcoming 718 Cayman GT4 is reported to receive an updated suspension for better handling compared to its predecessor. This is definitely good news. Better suspension makes it highly able to deal with any road conditions that is also responsible for a comfortable ride.

Even if it zooms at its fastest and most powerful, the insides remain calm and cool. This is especially important for any ride for that matter. Even if spotted photos reveal that it didn't have much design changes done to it, it still is promising altogether.

To make the Cayman GT4 even sportier and aggressive, it comes with a fixed rear wing as earlier reported. Its alloy wheels are wrapped in thin track-focused tires. It is also significantly lower and has an intense-looking rear diffuser to channel air under the car. This is necessary to create downforce on high-speed track work.

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 is expected to be officially revealed before the year ends. It may also be likely be introduced in one of the major auto shows so better stay tuned for future developments.
