Make way for the most potent pairing in the Porsche 718 family so far, the 2020 718 Cayman GT4 and the 718 Spyder. The two new models sit at the top end of the 718 tree, and introduced a new 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated straight-six engine. That, Porsche says, is good for 414 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque.
A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, with an “Auto Blip” feature for downshifts that you can turn off if you prefer. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), with its adaptive dampers, is standard, as is a mechanical limited-slip differential with Porsche Torque Vectoring at the rear. The 2018 911 GT3 donates its front axle and standard iron brakes.
Styling tweaks outside and in differentiate the two new cars from the rest of the 718 crowd, meanwhile. Though the two new models won’t arrive in the US until the Spring of 2020, they’re already up for sale now.
