The key data for Cayman GT4
Let us summarize the most important data for the really crisp, emotionally styled and perhaps porschigsten Porsche shortly together: First images published the Stuttgart sports car Herstelle morning 04 February 2015. His debut the car at the Geneva Motor Show a month later. When Cayman GT4 components of the Porsche 911 GT3 were first combined with the smaller series: With a lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds on the Nürburgring the Porsche Cayman GT4 went immediately to the top of its market segment. The engine of the Cayman GT4 has been derived from the driving record of the 911 Carrera S and develops 385 hp / 283 kW 3.8-liter displacement. One switches the loud Porsche car suitable for everyday use by six-speed gearbox with dynamic gearbox bearings.
The Cayman GT4 accelerated to factory specifications in 4.4 seconds from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour; the top speed is 295 kilometers per hour. 30 millimeters was the lowered compared to the basic version; Suspension and significantly larger brake system consist almost entirely of components of the 911 GT3. only to be expected as in a vehicle with the letters on behalf GT4 engine and suspension, brakes and aerodynamics are designed for maximum driving dynamics; but the top model retains the typical versatility and practicality of the two-seater Porsche coupes, its manufacturer. Externally the Cayman GT4 markedly different from the related mid-engine coupé, about 3 by striking inlet openings in the front apron, the Schuco has perfectly modeled.
model looked at in detail
This and the large, fixed rear wing are part of an aerodynamic package for the Porsche Cayman GT4, which is consistently designed for downforce. Schuco has all these details - as might be expected - really perfectly reproduced. The appearance of the Cayman GT4 1:18 coincides perfectly with the model; the shape is converted 1: 1 into the model, processing top notch. The doors and flaps super clean. But why the miniature is only now, three months after the GT-Spirit? Clearly: Forms for a diecast model to build with functional parts will take longer than those for a resine car model. The mold for die-cast zinc is more demanding than for miniatures from the polyurethane casting resin Resin. We think that both GT Spirit and Schuco have received at the same time the manufacturer data, it lies in the nature of Diecast cars to take longer to mature. But things come to those who wait well.
A good start to the week you wish your ck-modelcars team from Asslar!
