Located in Tennessee, the “Tail of the Dragon” is a renowned 11-mile (18 km) road section known for its remarkable 318 curves. This iconic road earned its name due to the resemblance of its winding path to that of a dragon. As a result of its exhilarating twists and turns, the “Tail of the Dragon” has evolved into a beloved destination for numerous car enthusiasts seeking thrilling driving experiences.
In a new video from Hagerty, we get to see motoring journalist Henry Catchpole drive a Porsche Cayman GT4 RS on the “Tail of the Dragon” which he calls as the US’ equivalent of the Nürburgring.
Now, the Porsche Cayman GT4 RS is perfectly suited for a road that features a lot of bends. The GT4 RS is equipped with the same scintillating flat-six engine that powers the 911 GT3. It’s a 4.0-liter unit that makes 493 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque in the GT4 RS.
