Porsche India debuted the 718 Cayman GT4 RS in the country at the Festival of Dreams in Mumbai. Held at the Jio World Convention Center, the festival marks the 75th anniversary of the sports car maker. While Porsche had already soft-launched the GT4 RS in May 2022 and announced its pricing, this was the first public appearance of the top-of-the-range 718-series model in the country.

Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 4.0L engine that delivers 500 horsepower. The company has claimed that the GT4 RS can go from 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. The powertrain is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and offers a top speed of 315 km/h.

The supercar only comes in the Cayman coupe body style. On the exterior, there are several changes from the standard 718 Cayman. The GT4 RS gets a 30mm lower ride height, a gooseneck wing stand and an adjustable front diffuser. Porsche has replaced the rear window with a more aerodynamic design that provides better airflow to the engine. The high-performance car brand also claims that this gives the car a better soundtrack. The use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic for the front fenders and bonnet has made the GT4 RS lighter. The supercar also gets a lighter rear window and new vents.

Sitting at the helm of the 718 lineup, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS costs Rs 2.54 crore (ex-showroom). It will compete with rivals like Mercedes-AMG GT R and McLaren 720S in the Indian market.

Aside from the GT4 RS, the Festival of Dreams showcased every vehicle Porsche has in its India portfolio. This means that the Cayenne, the 718 and 911 supercars, the Macan, the Taycan EV and the Panamera saloon were all on display under one roof. The location also had a Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur Zone, a Porsche Lifestyle Section and Porsche Soul Garage.
