Video: Porsche Cayman GT4 lapping Nurburgring in 7:42

German publication Sport Auto has put together another one of its Supertests at the Nurburgring, this time with the epic new Porsche Cayman GT4.

Porsche Cayman GT4-Nurburgring

For those who don’t know, the new GT4 is the most potent and track-worthy edition of the Cayman ever made. It sits just beneath the 911 GT3 in the company’s lineup, featuring lots of motorsport-derived components.

In the engine compartment behind the cabin sits a 3.8-litre flat-six engine taken from the 911 Carrera S. It pumps out 283kW of power. Sitting in the lightweight Cayman, which tips the scales at a mere 1340kg, it offers an exceptional power-to-weight ratio.

Out on the Nurburgring Sport Auto driver Christian Gebhardt clocked a 7:42.39 lap. This makes it as quick as a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV, and a 2006 Porsche 911 GT3.
