Mumbai. Porsche’s 718 family of mid-engined sports cars welcomes two new members with the arrival of the 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4. Featuring a newly developed 420 PS (309 kW), four-liter, six-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine, these models appeal to the most hardened sports car enthusiasts. They are the most powerful models in the 718 range, together with the emotional appeal of a traditional six-speed manual transmission. While the GT4 represents the entry-level GT road model from Porsche, the Spyder is for open-top, dynamic driving on curvy routes.

Ashish Kaul, Head of Sales at Porsche India, said: “Porsche India introduces two emotional and powerful models to the market, using a naturally aspirated powertrain based on the turbo engines in the current 911 Carrera model series. The 718 Cayman GT4 and 718 Spyder are about unrivaled driving fun and sheer emotions. They are the perfect sports car for those who like to push the limits and enjoy a racing pulse. We are very excited to offer these purist’s models to our customers here in India. With a limited allocation for our market, the 718 Cayman GT4 and 718 Spyder will be a rare and extraordinary sight on our streets.”

At the heart of both models is the new four-liter, six-cylinder engine which spins to 8,000 rpm and generates 420 PS (309 kW). It delivers a maximum torque of 420 newton-meters from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm. Where allowed, the Cayman GT4 reaches a top speed of 304 km/h, with the Spyder also passing the 300 km/h barrier at 301km/h. Both models reach 100 km/h from standstill in 4.4 seconds.

The new Porsche 718 Spyder and the 718 Cayman GT4 are available in India now.
