The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance serves as a test vehicle. Like the Mission R, the all-wheel-drive racer uses the chassis of the proven 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport model. The entire electric motor and battery technology also comes from the IAA concept study, which in qualification mode translates to a maximum output of 735 kW (1,000 PS) and more. In simulated racing, a constant 450 kW (612 PS) is available for 30 minutes, i.e. the duration of a Carrera Cup race. In terms of lap times and top speed, the 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance is on par with the performance of the current 992-generation 911 GT3 Cup.

“With Mission R, we show how Porsche sees the customer’s sustainable motor race into the future. The 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance now shows that this vision is working well on the racetrack,” said Matthias Scholz, manager of GT racing vehicle project. “We’re very excited about the response because a cup maker with electric racing cars could be a significant addition to our existing customer racing program.”
