Porsche tests refreshed Cayman GT4 RS at the Nurburgring

According to the video posted, the Porsche team is conducting high-speed testing of the refreshed Cayman in the powerful GT4 RS version. A camouflaged prototype of the novelty was spotted at the Nürburgring race track.

Just a month ago, pictures emerged of a hardcore Porsche 718 Cayman in a high-performance GT4 RS that was being tested at the Nürburgring. From what we saw in these static footage, the mid-engined road “monster” passed the high-speed tests. Now we have a video from that race – on it you can hear the menacing growl of the exhaust system of the novelty.

In the standard GT4, the naturally aspirated engine offers 414 hp, but in the RS version, this figure will be increased.

The GT4 RS gets a significantly larger rear wing, and while Porsche is trying to hide it, we see additional air vents in the front bumper that probably help cool the brakes. There’s also a pair of NACA air vents in the bonnet, and the schematic rivets on the front fenders indicate the GT4 has a slightly wider track. But this time we are especially interested in the air intakes on the side window.

Rumor has it that in the case of the new GT4 RS, the 4.0-liter powerplant will produce at least 500 hp. This car looks incredibly fast and agile when cornering at high speed. There is no doubt that this will be the most powerful and fastest version of the Porsche 718 Cayman ever. According to rumors, the new product will receive additional suspension tuning, improvements in terms of aerodynamics, as well as a relatively light weight.

The Porsche 718 Cayman in the high-performance GT4 RS is due to debut sometime next year.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the electric Porsche Taycan has become the brand’s bestseller. Such information on Thursday, September 24, was shared by the official press service of the premium German mark.
