DData sheets can be wonderfully dry: two-seater vehicle concept with a mid-engine. So far correct. The Porsche 718 Cayman GT 4 RS is on the road. Means an increased pulse when at rest because of the front with nostrils, apron and carbon, gills on the fenders, engine inlets on the side, the rear wing on the gooseneck worthy of the name. After waking up the engine room, this means goosebumps in the driver and in the neighbourhood, the cat ducks irritated and then wants to get on the passenger seat. During the first few meters of both sides warming up, the engine twitches, only to quickly transition into a smoothly staged tornado. A hundred kilometers against the wind, the inclined ear recognizes the unique sawing and rattling character of the six-cylinder.
Porsche has implanted the sucking sculpture of the 911 GT 3 in this 718, a microsurgical intervention with motor precision, which can be admired under the window in the rear, which is reinforced by a strut. They gave it a lot of effort on the lowered chassis, except for the double wishbone front axle, a little respect for the 911 has to remain. Driving out is granted to professionals on the loop, in everyday civilian life there is no curve that could show the 718 limits. With bold courage when accelerating spontaneously, the rear rushes briefly to the exit, with determined calm at the Alcantara steering wheel, it arrows straight ahead again. The tachometer lasciviously announces heights where the eagle flies best alone, breathing stops at 6000, at 9000 pistons and circulation plunge into the red area, where do you go to the endorphine donation service?
Four liters, 500 hp, from zero to one hundred in 3.2 seconds, if Sunday morning nothing but the horizon is in sight, 315 km / h, when braking careless flies smash the wing, test consumption 13.3 liters. The RS weighs 1490 kilograms empty, you can omit the radio as a diet fetishist, our copy, which is not exposed to the risk of softness, had one, air conditioning and a somewhat antiquated-looking navigation system. Porsche is Porsche because the sports seats with harness belts are suitable for the Nürburgring and still straighten the intervertebral discs on the way. Definitely recommended as a feel-good third car, available from 141,000 euros.
