We've started a little YouTube series on the development of our 718 GT4. The premise is to use track, a pro driver and an amateur driver and do our best to quantify the modifications we would do to the car to help make it faster.
We're still designing the power and exhaust mods and as is our normal, taking our own approach to it.
Here's where we're at so far... Episode 3 is coming up, spoiler, we only had 1.5 sessions to test the car with the pro as the weather was crap after the Emotion Engineering Suspension Arms, Motion Control Suspension Dampers and AP Radical Brake install. Still dialing in the suspension... After we're happy with the suspension, we should have the Splitter and Verus Swan Neck Wing to run.... Then finally our power mods...
And for those wondering what the car makes on our dyno...

718 GT4 baseline Dynos. First plot is 718GT4 compared to a healthy 981 GT4. You can see how much power the 718 has everywhere. 2nd plot is the same showing 100whp at redline. Last plot is compared to a 981 GT4 with Dundon D4 package. Looks like the 981 guys should give us a shout... can’t wait to see what we get out of the 718GT4. And before the Internet Dyno police start going crazy. The new SAE standard for the OEM’s is to hold the car at revs for a few seconds and then move on to the next rpm. So the engines get quite hot. It’s why the 2020 Corvette showed higher values on a chassis dyno than the SAE rating. What’s important is same dyno, same method, and compared against cars measured the same way... #718cayman #718spyder #718gt4 #981cayman #981gt4 #981boxster #porsche #400whp
