Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS: Everything you need to know
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS boasts a lot of performance upgrades over the standard GT4. The GT4 RS is powered by the same 4.0-litre boxer-six engine but produces an enhanced power output of 500hp, which is 80hp more that the GT4. The GT4 RS can go from 0-199kmph in just 3.4 seconds. The top speed has been capped at 315 kmph. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox is mated to the 4.0L engine.
The GT4 RS is also lighter than the standard 718 Cayman, with a kerb weight of 1,415kg. The carbon fibre plastic used on the bonnet and front wings helps bring down the weight of the coupe. The rear windscreen is also claimed to be lighter than the standard 718 Cayman.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS comes in a coupe body only. Its exterior has also been aerodynamically improved with the help of a swan-necked rear wing, new air vents, and an adjustable front diffuser. The height of the car has also been reduced by 30mm which increases the downforce by 10%. In track mode, the downforce increases to 60%.
As mentioned earlier, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS was launched in India last year at a price of Rs 2.54 crore. The ‘Festival of Dreams’, which the automaker is calling its very own Expo will also be showcasing other Porsche cars. In the Indian market, the luxury coupe locks horns with the Mercedes-AMG GT R and McLaren 720S.
