An all-new version of Porsche’s track-focused Cayman GT4 has been spotted testing in Sweden as the German car giant ramps up preparations ahead of the car’s launch this summer.

The GT4 is based on the current 718-generation of Porsche’s Cayman sports car. Previous spy images show aggressive styling and a large rear wing perched above its boot lid.

But images posted by the US-based news site Motor1 show the car in a more subtle spec. The pictures show the GT4 testing on Sweden’s wintry roads.

At first glance the development vehicle in the most recent snaps looks almost identical to a standard 718 Cayman sports car. But what signals that this model is a GT4 car is the positioning of the exhausts. These sit further apart than on standard models.

This could mean that Porsche is developing a Touring version of the new sports car. Compared to the regular GT4-spec Cayman, the vehicle would have a more luxurious cabin and sleeker styling, says Car magazine.

American arrested in Russia as spy was there for wedding

American arrested in Russia as spy was there for wedding The Russian spying charges carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years. David Whelan said in an interview that his brother had been to Russia several times previously, so when a fellow former Marine was planning a wedding in Moscow with a Russian woman he was asked to come along to help out. The morning of his arrest, he had taken a group of wedding guests on a tour of the Kremlin museums. The last time anyone heard from him was at about 5pm and then he failed to show up that evening for the wedding, his brother said. “It was extraordinarily out of character,” he said.

If true, it would come as little surprise given the popularity of the 911 GT3 Touring, an offshoot of the supercar-rivalling 911 GT3. The driver-focused sports car, which launched in 2017, had no rear wing and could only be specced with a manual gearbox, the magazine adds.

(Photo by Sjoerd van der Wal/Getty Images) Sightings of the standard Cayman GT4 have been more frequent as Porsche often fine-tunes its upcoming sports cars on the 12.9-mile Nurburgring circuit – a prime spot for photographers looking to snap new cars before they’re publicly unveiled.

The car is tipped to resemble the previous-generation Cayman GT4 [pictured top], which was widely praised by the critics when it arrived in 2015.

It’s also expected to have a wide rear wing and a carbon fibre rear diffuser.

It won’t be long before fans get their first look at the car in production-ready form as Porsche is due to unveil it in July.

What engine will it have?

Unlike the standard 718 Cayman, which is powered by a four-cylinder turbocharged boxer engine, the Cayman GT4 will be equipped with a 3.8-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine.

Power figures won’t arrive until closer to the car’s release this summer, but Car magazine says that Porsche has upped the Cayman GT4’s performance from 375bhp to 420bhp.

The first batch of Cayman GT4s, which arrive later this year, will only be available with manual gearboxes, the magazine says. Buyers wanting an automatic car will have to wait for the second wave of production at the end of 2020.
