The new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS costs more than the 911 GT3!

The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS has been a huge success in international markets. Frankly, it's not surprising, for it packs the engine from the 911 GT3 in a smaller form factor, trick aero, and has undergone a lot of weight shedding – a sure shot recipe for success if you ask me. Prices for the hardcore 718 GT4 RS start at an eye-watering Rs 2.54 crore, and the optional extras will, of course, have you weeping.

The biggest highlight of the 718 GT4 RS is the 4.0-litre flat-six, sitting right in the middle. It revs to 9,000rpm, makes 493bhp and 450Nm, and is mated only to a PDK automatic. There is no manual on offer because it's an RS model. The 0 to 100km/h sprint time is a fairly quick 3.4 seconds, while the top speed is 315km/h.

One of the key differences between the GT4 and GT4 RS is the aero. The RS gets a big swan-neck wing, similar to what we’ve seen on the 992 GT3, a 30mm lower ride height compared to the standard 718, vents on the front wheel arches and better underbody air management.

The RS has also undergone a lot of weight-shedding – a lot of lightweight materials like carbon fibre and other composites have been used to bring the 718 GT4 RS’ weight down to 1,415kgs – 35kgs less than a PDK-equipped 718 GT4.

At Rs 2.54 crore, the RS is already more expensive than the 911 GT3, and the costs of optional extras further add to it – the Weissach Package costs Rs 32.4 lakh extra, the forged magnesium rims add an additional Rs 30.5 lakh, and the ceramic brakes demand Rs 16.2 lakh more.
