PNew Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS tested on track

Recently, it was reported that Porsche could create the 718 Cayman GT4 RS as an even more aggressive version of the coupe with higher specifications than the standard GT4 model. On the eve of the web were published spy shots, on which we can assume that the rumors were not unfounded. The car in the photos certainly looks more charged for the track.

Compared to the existing Cayman GT4, this proposed RS has the same front part, and air intakes are located on the hood on each side, while the central part of the part looks more sculptural, in contrast to the flatter design on the existing version.

On the side, the location of the air intakes looks a bit further than on the current version of the coupe. Side vents also appeared in the side windows. The photographs do not give a good idea of ​​whether this element is purely aesthetic or whether it can be new air ducts for directing air into the engine.

The rear of this Cayman has an impressive spoiler that looks like the one we saw on the next-generation 911 GT3 test mules. This part should provide a significant increase in downforce, although this makes viewing difficult.

The interior of the novelty is practically not visible in the pictures, but the most interesting element is on the passenger side. Judging by these photos, an absolutely gigantic screen is installed on the test car. This display probably shows data from the transmission and other systems.

The powerplant for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS is said to be an updated version of the 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine from the regular GT4. Elements such as titanium connecting rods to reduce rotational mass and settings to reduce friction can raise the speed limit even higher than the current 8000 rpm.
