WE HAVE READ A LOT ABOUT THE Porsche 718 GT4 RS. NOW IT’S TIME TO FIND OUT WHAT IT’S LIKE TO OWN ONE.
At RoadStr, it’s not just about driving your car, meeting people, and sharing your experiences. We know that many enthusiasts are always looking for something to improve their car, and what new treats to keep impoving on those unique driving sensations.
And not only that, but sometimes -if not all the time- we even think about trading our car for another.
The internet is full of test drive review, reports, and comparisons of all types of vehicles, from the most objective and journalistic perspective possible. But here we bring you a new series where the owner tells us about the driving experience and the personal connection with their machine.
Because that’s what it’s all about, right?
Let’s get to know the owner of this spectacular Porsche Cayman GT4 RS.
His name is Kike García, he is 38 years old and he is an engineer and economist.
“An automotive enthusiast for as long as I can remember, born a petrolhead.” His exact words.
Prior to the GT4-RS, he has owned a 964 Carrera 2 Convertible, a 991 GT3, a 991 GT3-RS and a 718 GT4. And beyond that, for many years he was building an Ultima GTR with 565hp and 1000kg that was finished in 2017. “A unique experience with which I learned a lot,” he says.
He currently races with a BMW Compact and a Sport-proto.
Let’s get to know the configuration of his Porsche GT4-RS:
– Weissach package
– PTS Nato Olive
– Arctic Gray interior
– Neodyme-colored wheels
– PDLS plus
– Front axle lift system
It’s currently rolling psat 2,200 km (1,400 miles) of which 1,500 km (900 miles) have been the break-in period. On the other hand, he tells us that he’s already been able to enjoy the car on the open road and at the Montmeló circuit, where he dropped his time by 1.5 seconds compared to his previous GT3-RS record. “blah bla bla… yes, time doesn’t matter, only the enjoyment…”
And what does kike like the most and least about his GT4-RS?
5 things I like most about my GT4RS:
– Handling/management both on the road and on the track. Perfect balance in my opinion.
– The interior sound at 9000 rpm.
– Gearbox ratio. It’s much shorter than in the manual GT4 and PDK.
– Functional and aesthetic details of the car: exhaust pipes from the 935 and the wing style from the GT1.
– The color of the PTS Nato Olive.
5 things I like least about my GT4-RS:
– Exterior sound (fixed soon with a JCR exhaust).
– Limitation of the camber angle on the front axle.
– Interior is a bit outdated.
– It’s not a 911 (it doesn’t have the same heritage).
– I can’t think of a 5th!
