Porsche Likely to Follow Cayman GT4 with an RS Model


Customers will gobble up any special addition the company sells them.

Following the public debut of the Porsche Cayman GT4 at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show last week, it seems the company might already be on its way to crushing the current line-topper with an upcoming higher-performance version. That's right, in a recent interview, Porsche Motorsport boss Andreas Preuninger stated that a Cayman GT4 RS may soon see the light of day. And like all RS models, it will be even lighter and faster than the GT4 we were just introduced to, though the company says it still has no official details to release about such a car.

The Cayman GT4 already has a Carrera S-sourced 3.8-liter flat six that produces 385 horsepower and tackles 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 183 mph. Having been sold out in many European markets with a waiting list of two years even before its debut, it seems that supply of any high-performance Porsche model will likely be hard-pressed to meet customer demand. Speaking to Evo magazine, Preuninger said that "This is just the beginning of the era". He explained that the company is listening to its customers, attention which is likely to breed an RS version of the Cayman GT4 not far down the line.
