If the 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 doesn’t seem to be enough, keep in mind that the German brand still hasn’t put every ounce of performance into the car.
Yes, there is a harder 718 Cayman GT4 RS or something that Porsche managers have been pointing to for years and is now being tested as a prototype.
Given Porsche’s previous habits with other RS vehicles, more power should also be on the table. Rumor has it that it will be almost 450 HP. The GT4 has a new 4.0-liter, 6-liter flat engine with 414 horsepower and 309 pound-feet of torque.
For the GT4 RS, Porsche is expected to add internal elements from the 4.0-liter engine of the 911 GT3 with an output of 500 hp, especially the titanium connecting rods and the dry sump system of the GT3. This could help the GT4 RS engine turn more to generate more power.
The only transmission that the GT4 offers is a 6-speed manual transmission with speed adjustment. The transmission is transmitted to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential. There have been rumors of a dual clutch transmission on the GT4, although this may be saved for the RS version.
There will certainly be some chassis updates that come with the extra power and aerodynamic modifications. The GT4 already has adaptive dampers and a ride height that is 1.18 inches lower than the standard models of the 718. The vehicles also have settings for manual inclination, dropout, ride height and stabilizer.
It is unclear when the GT4 RS will make its debut, but it is expected to be released in 2020. It is also unclear whether the associated 718 Boxster Spyder will also receive RS treatment, although such a move is unlikely given the unconditional nature of the RS designation. from Porsche.
