Officially launching in November, the first 718 to carry the RS badge has impressively demonstrated its dynamic potential both on twisty mountain roads and on the racetrack.
Brand ambassador and development driver Jörg Bergmeister lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit (20.6 km lap) in a lightly disguised production car in 7:04.511 minutes – 23.6 seconds faster than its little brother, the 718 Cayman GT4.
"During development, we gave the 718 Cayman GT4 RS everything that characterises a genuine RS: lightweight construction, more downforce, more power and, of course, an even higher level of responsiveness and feedback to driver inputs. The fantastic lap time of the Nordschleife is impressive proof of how clearly noticeable these improvements in driving dynamics are," says Directors GT Model Line, Andreas Preuninger. "Our customers can look forward to a pure driver's car that makes a thrilling driving experience an absolute priority."
Jörg Bergmeister added "The 718 Cayman GT4 RS is an uncompromising driving machine. It feels as nimble as a go-kart on mountain roads, yet is impressively stable and well-balanced on the racetrack. Otherwise, such a lap time wouldn’t even be possible. The GT4 RS is one of the sharpest cars Porsche has ever developed. And you really have had to experience the breathtaking noise it makes for yourself."
