Porsche has been improving its 718 Cayman GT4 RS for several months. The world premiere of the model will take place in November, but it was already admired during the fast race at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Jorg Bergmeister himself was behind the wheel of the slightly camouflaged prototype.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is as agile as a small kart and impressively stable
Camouflaged prototype Porsche GT4 RS, equipped with a racing seat, was racing to record on tires Michelin Pilot Sport 2R Cup. Porsche says Jorg Bergmeister completed the 20,832 km section of the Nürburgring in 7:09:300.
It took 7:04.511, 23.6 seconds faster than the 718 Cayman GT4, to cover the shorter 20.6km lap that until recently was the norm.
As a reminder, the 918 supercar needed 6:57.00 for this, and the Lamborghini Aventador SV unofficially covered that distance at 6.59.73. As mentioned Fastest cyclesThe Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro, McLaren 720S and Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition did so at 7.04.63, 7.08.00 and 7.14.64, respectively.
Jorg Bergmeister spent 500 hours testing and tuning the model, and this is what he had to say about it:
The 718 Cayman GT4 RS is a relentless engine. It feels agile like a go-kart on mountain roads, but at the same time is impressively stable and well-balanced when driving on a racetrack. The GT4 RS is one of the most powerful cars Porsche has ever developed.
Finally, the right gears and the right sound
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS will top the top of the 718 Cayman family in just one month. You’ll get a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine, which will be shared with the RS without lettering and the 718 Boxster Spyder.
Numbers haven’t been revealed yet, but it’s expected to generate 500 horsepower. This means that it will gain a significant advantage over the 718 Cayman GT4.
As you’ll see in the video below, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4’s sibling is quite polished. It works well both on the track and on mountain roads. The on-board recording allows you to enjoy the great performance and sound of the device.
The sight of the flowing silhouette and how it sticks to the middle of the turn is impressive. You will find a full video from outside the car Here.
