2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Release Date, Specs and Price
The 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 was revealed in February 2015 and finally Porsche answered it after being anticipated for quite long. It came out with mid-engined Cayman to make it potential and it supported the car to be not too faster to the base 911. 2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 now is ready to hit the streets and the tracks in the world and the next question is whether or not Porsche will work their RS model and what we got was only about all speculations.
Talking about the new 2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 it has a significant connection with the RS model just like what Porsche did for the 911 GT3 and GT3 RS. We mean it would not be hard to imagine about its features and design. It is predicted that the RS model will be released with louvered front fenders as well as reshaped rear-fender intakes to enhance its engine cooling. The company also has a goal to improve it is aerodynamic. To achieve it, Porsche will add a larger front splitter and larger rear wing, but it is better not to expect that the wing will be as big as the GT3’s. The RS badge will be placed on the side and the RS will be identical to the RS4. It is possible if the company will throw in a couple of bespoke colors exclusive to complete this model.
There will be no much changes to make the GT4 RS quite different from the 2018 Porsche Cayman GT4. The GT4 will have optional options but it will be the standard when those are added to the RS model. It would be all and we expect that there will be racing bucket seats from carbon fiber as well as the Custom Sports Chrono Package with the Track Precision App. There is also the Alcantara-wrapped sports steering wheel as well as the similar cabin layout as the GT4 with the same aluminum trim. The RS model will also offer some specific racing features such as six-point safety harness for the drivers, fire extinguisher, lightweight door handles and roll cage behind the front seats.
2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 Engine
The thing that will make the new RS model different from the 2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 is the engine. Both models are designed with 3.8-liter six-cylinder, but the GT-RS is capable of providing about more than 410 hp because of its lighter bodyweight. The GT4 model only works for about 385 hp. The flat-six will be mated to the same six-speed manual transmission. The RS model will be a bit faster than the GT4 that can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.
2018 Porsche Cayman GT4 will be the most expensive Cayman and it is expected to come after the end of 2017 with the base price about $100,000.
