    Is it going to remain a manual?

    One would hope so. Porsche knows that the manual box is the primary reason behind the success of the GT4. If they were to take this away, they'd be shooting themselves in the foot.

      Depends on how limited production is. If they do limit the number, I think manual only. Other wise, I think they'll offer both a manual and the PDK.

      Here's The New 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4

      These are the first spy shots showing Porsche’s work on a hardcore version of the 718 Cayman, which is either going to replace the GT4 or is aiming to adopt the more provocative GT4 RS name tag.
      stick to naturally aspirated six-cylinder goodness as we reported earlier on the matter.

      The original Cayman GT4 was propelled by a 911-sourced 3.8-litre flat-six unit and our intel tells us that Porsche is probably going to up the ante with a detuned version of the 4.0-litre unit found in the new 911 GT3.

      The spy shots show us an early prototype doing some laps at the Nurburgring, probably testing new suspension parts and an exhaust system that’s not that well fitted, indicating at a new engine providing the power.

      With the previous Cayman GT4 getting 385hp, it’s safe to expect over 400hp from the new version. One other thing that can’t go unnoticed is the wheel arches that are filled with foam, making the car look wider.

      The new hot iteration of the 718 Cayman will also continue using a good old-fashioned six-speed manual gearbox, with the option of a PDK dual-clutch transmission a possibility.

      Stay tuned for more on the upcoming hardcore Porsche 718 Cayman as there are many questions still waiting for an answer.

        ^ It'll loose it's mystique with the addition of PDK, methinks.

        Haven't driven the GT4 yet, but i think it's safe to assume it'll be too good with the new 6 Speed from the GT3 judging by some of the early GT4 reviews I've read.
