    • Auto Motor Und Sport Porsche 718 Cayman GTS fast lap test

      German publication Auto Motor Und Sport recently did their fast lap test of the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS. They do solid testing but their test track as you can see in its layout definitely tends to favor power.


      The 718 GTS manages a 1:53.51 laptime which is good for 44th place on their test list. This puts it behind the BMW F82 M4 and Audi TT-RS.

      The 718 would obviously excel at a far more technical and tighter track.

        That track only has like 5 turns though.

        Keep in mind that was a 2016 991.1 GT3 RS. I'd still expect that car to beat an R8 V10+ at just about any track aside from one mainly made up of straights but a 991.2 GT3 RS is much quicker than the .1. Even swapping the new N2 spec tires from the 991.2 onto the 991.1 cars seems to be worth 1-2 seconds per lap depending on the track, driver, etc. and then the .2 RS is also quicker in a straight line, has a much stiffer suspension setup, etc. vs the 2016 car.
