The GT4 RS airbox has been moved to the interior and features a newly developed air filter for a throaty interior sound and optimum airflow. Its acoustic output has been honed to emphasise driver engagement. This is a vehicle designed with Purist sound and a motorsport character.

Lauded for its steering feel and braking performance, as well as praised for its high-revving engine, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS can produce 500 PS (368 kW) and 450 Nm of torque, and the engine revs to 9,000 rpm.
