718 Cayman GT4 RS, first contact with the « small » extreme Porsche

On paper, the new 718 Cayman GT4 RS looks like the perfect Porsche. It has the “big” atmospheric four-litre flat-six of the 911 GT3, capable of screaming up to 9000 rpm. It develops here 500 horsepower against 510 in its big sister, the fault of different exhaust pipes.

But the car also weighs less than the GT3, with an announced mass of 1,415 kilos. Enough to bring down the 0 to 100 km / h in 3.4 seconds exactly like the latter, all for a lower price: 144,485 €, against 178,595 €.

So, has the “small” Porsche become even better than the big one? To find out, we will unfortunately have to wait until March 23. But we have already been able to approach the beast in its natural environment, on the Estoril circuit in Portugal. And take a good look at the engine intake intakes behind the side windows which run to the air box located just behind the seats, it is perhaps the most important technical element of the car…
