Porsche Secretly Teases the Cayman GT4: Video
It’s been only 24 hours since Porsche teased the 2017 Cayman GT4 in an update for the smartphone/tablet racing game Real Racing 3, and the German manufacturer provided us with yet another glimpse of track-focused sports car. This time around, however, the teaser was cleverly "hidden" in a two-minute video showcasing how classic 911s are being restored by the experts of the Porsche Museum Workshop. The GT4 makes its subtle appearance 11 seconds into the video, as a Museum Workshop employee drives an early 911 Targa through the institution’s underground parking area. Stationed between a Boxster and a regular Cayman, the yellow GT4 appears briefly in two frames, showcasing its 911 GT3-like, fixed rear wing.
It is still unclear whether or not Porsche intended to tease the GT4 in this video, but judging by how the camera is positioned as the 911 Targa turns right while passing the semi camouflaged Boxsters and Caymans, I’d dare say it’s rather intentional.
This is our best look yet at the Cayman GT4, which appears as if it just rolled off the assembly line. It is also the first GT4 to show its rear end and wing in their full splendor, as well as the first example to sport an exterior paint different than the basic black seen on the test cars.
Although the footage isn’t very revealing, it is a strong indication that the GT4 is actually ready to hit auto show stands. The big reveal is likely to take place at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March, but the GT4 is also expected to break cover in a couple of weeks in Real Racing 3, a game that promises an "exclusive worldwide reveal" in its latest update. The announcement is accompanied by a teaser shot showing the headlamps and front end of a yellow Porsche Cayman.
