This is it, the 2015 Porsche Cayman GT4!

To make the GT4, you basically take a stock Cayman, add the 385 horsepower motor from a 911 S, and then add plenty of suspension and brake bits from the 911 GT3.

And, if it happens to come in bright yellow, all the better.

The overall look up-front is not drastically different than the regular Cayman.

Big brakes are standard, though you'll need to pay extra if you want carbon ceramics.

Both the wing on the back and the fascia on the front provide functional downforce.

A lower diffuser helps, too.

The wing is even adjustable, in case you feel like tweaking things.

Space under the rear hatch is limited, but enough for a weekend getaway.

A double-clutch PDK box may be faster, but not as engaging as this six-speed.
