The recently announced Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport made its first appearance in Mainland China and the Asia-Pacific region on display at the Guangzhou Auto Show on Friday.
As the first motorsport product to be launched at a major local auto show as a highlighted car, the GT4 RS Clubsport was unveiled by David Xiao, Chief Operating Officer of Porsche China, alongside the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT to media, VIPs, customers and visitors. Featuring a 500bhp six-cylinder boxer engine taken straight from the 911 GT3 Cup, the new model is available for purchase to the Chinese public directly from Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific in RMB.
The new entry-level racer is a direct upgrade on the previous version, with 18 per cent more power and improvements to the aerodynamics and handling meaning it can lap more than 2 per cent faster than the older model.
No further modifications are needed to go racing, with the car eligible for numerous championships across the globe. In the Asia-Pacific region, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport can be entered in Porsche Sports Cup China, Porsche Sprint Trophy Thailand, GT4 Asia and GT Super Sprint Challenge, among others.
Deliveries in the Asia Pacific region will begin in January, ahead of the 2022 season.
