The Knockhill Racing Circuit is a 30-minute drive northwest from Edinburgh, Scotland, and is surrounded by sheep-filled grazing fields. Based on the surrounding countryside and track map, Knockhill doesn't seem like too much of a challenge, but romping around "Scotland's national motorsport center" in a 2020 Porsche Cayman GT4 proves otherwise. The 1.3-mile, 9-turn road course keeps you on your toes with tight turns and elevation changes. It's a serious race track best tackled in a serious track car. Thankfully, that's exactly what the is.
After a slow and steady recognizance lap behind an instructor in a, it's time for my hot laps. Flooring the GT4's throttle out of the hairpin onto the front straight causes its new, 4.0-liter, naturally aspirated flat-six engine to belt out some lovely sounds, running up to its 8,000-rpm redline. The soundtrack isn't quite as ear-pleasing as the higher-pitch scream of the GT3, but not many engines come close to matching those riveting noises. It sure beats the four-cylinder drone from other Cayman models, anyway.
Like in the 718 Spyder, with which the GT4 shares its mechanicals, the engine has a stop-start system and cylinder deactivation, too.
