Date of unveil by Porsche Motorsport: August 8, 2018 Premiere: August 16, 2018 WRC Rallye Germany
For testing purposes Porsche Motorsport has built a few tarmac rally cars based on the Cayman 981 GT4 racing version. The Cayman rally car is the course car of the WRC (World Rally Championship) 2018 ADAC Rallye Deutschland. The FIA R-GT Cup is contested on tarmac rounds of the ERC and WRC, like the German WRC event.
For Porsche, the entry of a concept study based on the near-production GT circuit race car is a critical test under real conditions. “We’re looking forward to seeing how the rally world responds to our FIA R-GT concept study,” said Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars.
Cayman 981 rally car is a prototype for the 2020 718 Cayman (982) rally car.
