Porsche has just unveiled the RS version of the mid-engined Porsche 718 Cayman GT4.

As a sports car “designed for maximum driving pleasure,” the 718 Cayman GT4 RS sees a boost in power to 493 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. This is all generated via a naturally aspirated flat-six engine with a 9,000 rpm rev limit. As an “RS” standard, this sports car also receives the Porsche exclusive dual-clutch (PDK) transmission — alternatively, there’s also a re-designed selector lever on the center console.

Other upgrades include air intakes behind the driver and passenger windows, weight reduction, a new fixed rear wing with a swan-neck attachment, a 30-millimeter drop in ride height, an adjustable front diffuser, a new shock absorber set-up for the circuit-ready chassis, modified spring and anti-roll bar rates, and carbon-weave finishing. The Weissach package will also include a titanium roll cage, Race-Tex upholstery, titanium tailpipes, and 20-inch forged magnesium wheels.

The 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS goes from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, has a top speed of 315 km/h and is faster than its sibling, the 718 Cayman GT4, on Nürburgring Nordschleife by 23 seconds. These will be priced at €141,338 EUR ($160,000 USD) where Porsche will begin delivery in summer 2022.

In other automotive news, this 1993 Toyota Supra Mk4 is selling for $300,000 USD.
