The 718 Cayman GT4 is a highly competent vehicle, but as it turns out, the platform is capable of even more. Enter the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS. In the development of this new beast, Porsche did what every good German automaker does, and took it to the Nürburgring. Results were impressive, as you see in the official lap video. With Porsche development driver Jörg Bergmeister behind the wheel, the GT4 RS laid down a 7:09.3 laptime around the 20.832-kilometer Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit, while posting a 7:04.511 lap on the 20.6 km layout. The latter is a full 23.6 seconds quicker than the existing Cayman GT4, making it clear that the RS is no minor upgrade. The laptimes were set with a production model vehicle, though equipped with a racing seat for driver safety. A set of sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires were used, which are an available option for the car. Andreas Preuninger and Jörg Bergmeister celebrate after setting a rapid laptime in the Porsche Cayman GT4 RS. It's a rapid laptime for a car that isn't even top of the Porsche range. It compares well with the 6:43.3 second time set on the 20.8 km course by the 911 GT2. It should also let owners walk away from the Tesla Model S Plaid on a single lap, let alone during sustained running. Perhaps most notably, though, it bests the time set by the old 911 GT3, which lapped the course in 7:12.7 back in 2017. "During development, we gave the 718 Cayman GT4 RS everything that characterises a genuine RS: lightweight construction, more downforce, more power and, of course, an even higher level of responsiveness and feedback to driver inputs," said Andreas Preuninger, who holds the title of Director GT Model Line at Porsche. Preuninger also noted the value of testing at the Nürburgring, adding that "The fantastic lap time of the Nordschleife is impressive proof of how clearly noticeable these improvements in driving dynamics are." Porsche hasn't yet revealed the exact specifications of the GT4 RS. However, based on Preuninger's statements, expect more than the 414 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque of the GT4, and a curb weight a little less than 3295 lbs. Speculation in the car world is rife, with expectations the GT4 RS could boast up to 500 horsepower. These figures are backed up by little hard information, however, so should be taken with a grain of salt. Meanwhile, the obvious aero mods on the GT4 RS should help with sticking the car to the track in high-speed cornering. Bergmeister refers to the car as an "uncompromising driving machine," noting that "it feels as nimble as a go-kart on mountain roads, yet is impressively stable and well-balanced on the racetrack." We'd certainly love to take a go-kart out on the Tail of the Dragon, but it likely wouldn't be anywhere as near quick as the GT4 RS. Bergmeister's opinion carries some weight, but not only due to his fast laptimes. As a development driver, he spent over 500 hours behind the wheel during the car's development. The GT4 RS will be fully revealed at its world premier in November, but for now, marvel at the hot tour of Germany's most famous racing circuit. The first Cayman to bear the RS moniker seems like it will live up to the badge."

    Mazada RX-Vision GT3 Concept

    https://www.motor1.com/news/424655/mazda-rx-vision-gt3-concept-gran-turismo/ Gran Turismo has long been the home of many out-of-this-world, fictional race cars. One of the most notable was the Red Bull X2010, which could devour any track with mind-bending lap times. Thankfully, like the X2010, a new concept racer is on its way in the latest Gran Turismo Sport update. The new car is a GT3 spec version of the Mazda RX-Vision prototype previously seen at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. While the car is an absolutely gorgeous sight to behold, Mazda wanted its speed to match its looks. The car is powered by a next-generation racing variant of its famed rotary engine called the SKYACTIV-R. To be competitive in class, Mazda aimed at using a four-rotor configuration which will be complemented by SKYACTIV technology. The rotary heart of the RX-Vision is an integral part of Mazda and its motorsport division. After successfully producing the rotary engine with the Mazda Cosmo in a commercial application, the automaker worked tirelessly to improve it for motorsport use. To Mazda’s credit, they took overall victory in the 1991 installment of the 24 Hours of LeMans with the famed 787B. The RX-Vision will be available on Gran Turismo Sport beginning May 22 at 2:00 AM 0 EDT. After allowing gamers to acclimate to the new car, GT Sport is hosting two events on May 22 to commemorate Mazda’s centennial anniversary and the release of the RX-Vision GT3 concept. Along with a time-trial at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps there will be a livery design contest. We’d like to think a fair share of the custom designs will harken back to the iconic orange and green scheme seen on the LeMans winning 787B. That said, the winners from both events will receive a limited-edition sketch and miniature RX-Vision GT3 of their own.
  3. We all know Porsche's new 991 GT3 is a pretty fast car considering that it has 475bhp and can do more than 300km/h if the roads allow so. So, this guy in his Nissan comes up to GT3 and tries to out drag it with his 350Z. Of course the 350Z has to be tuned in order to even stand a chance. According to the video, it is equipped with a supercharger that would increases output to at least 420bhp. Then, all of a sudden, something else comes up from behind and surprises them at an estimated 240km/h. Watch the video and find out what happens... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dq2lh51G_c
  4. Watch Nismo’s Alex Buncombe climb 18 places in his Nissan GT Academy Team RJN Nissan GT-R GT3 in the opening lap of the Blancpain Endurance Series season-opener at Monza. Starting all the way in 32nd place out of 44 others, he quickly moves pass some big brands like BMW, Porsche and Lamborghini to slot into 13th at the end of his second lap. Now that's real life Gran Turismo for you! http://dai.ly/x1p0ljz_al-buncombes-gt-r-monza-blancpain-endurance-series_auto

    The demise of the manual transmission for the 911

  6. [extract] Looks like there will be another Mad Mercedes is on the way. But only for GT racing. Coinciding with the official market launch of the road going AMG SLS on 27 March 2010 Mercedes-AMG has showcased the SLS AMG GT3 for FIA GT3 Racing teams to consider. The SLS AMG GT3 is designed as a racing car for customers competing in sprints and long-distance races. These race series for near-series GT cars are noted for their very varied participants and great excitement. Not least because of their comparatively favorable cost structure, they are enjoying increasing worldwide popularity. Oh yes, favorable for those racing Aston Martins, Maseratis and Ferraris in those GT races most popular in the United States and in Europe. How favorable it is for any small time South East Asian motor racing team is questionable but that
