The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is powered by a naturally aspirated 4,0-litre flat-six engine which produces 368 kW and 450 N.m of torque with a rev limit of 9 000 r/min. with a claimed kerb mass figure of 1 415 kg, the new model will sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3,4 seconds and reach a top speed of 315 km/h. This model will only be available with the brand’s seven-speed PDK.
With this new configuration, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS has achieved a Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time of 7 minutes 04,511 seconds.
Among the striking features of the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS are the process air intakes behind the driver and passenger windows. They claim to improve both the intake airflow and create an intake noise right next to the occupants’ ears.
In addition, the new fixed rear wing, its swan-neck attachment and aluminium wing supports, are a distinctive element of the exterior design. This wing principle is derived from the Porsche 911 RSR GT racing car and was first adopted in a Porsche series production car with the 911 GT3. An optional Weissach package takes the dynamic design of the GT4 RS even further.
The new 718 Cayman GT4 RS is available for order from today at R2 507 000 with a three-year/100 000 km drive plan with first deliveries set to commence in the second quarter of 2022.
At the same time, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport racing version celebrates its premiere in Los Angeles. From 2022, the customer sports car will be launched in multiple national and international racing series. In addition to many upgraded details to further improve the overall performance, the standard seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) now uses all seven forward gears (rather than six) featuring shorter ratios. Depending on the track and series-specific regulations, the new 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport can achieve lap times that are over two percent quicker than the previous model.
