Porsche has oficially unveiled the 385-horsepower Cayman GT4, see it at TopSpeed.com.

Attention performance purists: your savior from Stuttgart has arrived. Porsche just unveiled the latest member of its GT family, officially inducting the Cayman into that illustrious batch of performance vehicles distilled to offer the most essential of driving characteristics. Unsurprisingly, this feat is accomplished with components pulled from the track-bruising 911 GT3, following the mid-engine sports-car formula perfected by cars like the 904 GTS, 911 GT1, Carrera GT, and 2014 918 Spyder.

Those are tough acts to follow, but the Cayman GT4 is no slouch. Porsche is claiming a lap around the North Loop of the Nürburgring in seven minutes and 40 seconds, placing it alongside the 2011 911 GT3 around the iconic German racetrack.

However, despite such a blistering pace, Porsche says it developed the engine, chassis, brakes, and aero to perform without hindering the overall utility expected of a two-seater sports coupe. That means this weapon of velocity should be somewhat drivable on surfaces without rumble strips and apex markers.

The rumor mill predicted everything from a turbocharged four-cylinder to a hybrid drivetrain for the Cayman GT4, but such complications remain mere hearsay. Read on to learn more about this latest mid-engine monster.

Updated 2/4/2015: Porsche dropped a first promo video for the new Cayman GT4 in which apparently the sports car manages to scare everyone around. Enjoy!
