The next Porsche 718 Cayman will be electric. You can see him here…

The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is one of the best sports cars ever made, with its hellishly naturally aspirated six-cylinder and absolute goosebumps soundtrack. Enjoy it for a little while longer, because the next generation is just buzzing. Here it is, in the form of a fully electric racing car: the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance.

The Porsche Mission R presented in September 2021 is not just a study model. First of all: we have already been able to drive it very hard on the track. And secondly: it forms the basis for this Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance. Both are on the chassis of the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, but have two electric motors instead of a naturally aspirated six-cylinder boxer engine. They deliver a maximum of 1088 horsepower to the wheels in qualifying mode.

Porsche Cayman GT4 ePerformance with over 600 hp racing power

During the race, the Cayman GT4 ePerformance can sustain a power output of more than 600 hp for half an hour. According to Porsche, this makes it just as fast as the current 911 GT3 Cup race car. The Cayman’s electric motors and battery are oil-cooled. This prevents the components on the track from getting too hot and thus maintains the performance of the car for longer.

The new fast charging champion, with a charging speed of up to 340 kW

Thanks to its 800 Volt system, the Porsche Taycan is the fast-charging champion of the moment. An average electric car achieves a charging speed of 150 – 200 kW. The Taycan goes far beyond that, with 270 kW. By using a 900 Volt system, Porsche has made the Cayman GT4 ePerformance even faster. On the right charger, he fills his battery with 340 kW from 5 to 80 percent charge level in 15 minutes.

Debut on the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​hill climb

Compared to the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, the GT4 ePerformance is no less than 14 centimeters wider. Its body is made of composite material with natural fibres. Recycled carbon fiber has also been used for the two prototypes in the photo. The Cayman GT4 ePerformance will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​at the end of June, where it will also do the famous hill climb.
