Porsche India has said that the “Festival of Dreams” will start on January 25 at the Jio World Convention Center in Mumbai. The 718 Cayman GT4 RS will make its debut in India at the event, which is a celebration of the brand’s 75th anniversary. The prices for the supercar in India were announced in May last year, but that was just a soft launch. This will be the model’s real debut.
The GT4 RS is the most expensive car in the 718 lineup. It cost Rs. 2.54 crore when it came out. It is only available as a Cayman coupe. It has a 500-horsepower, 4.0-liter engine that runs on natural gas, and Porsche says it can go from 0 to 100 in 3.4 seconds. It can go as fast as 315 kph when paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Compared to the standard 718 Cayman, the GT4 RS has a swan-necked rear wing, new air vents, an adjustable front diffuser, and a 30mm lower ride height. Porsche says that they changed the rear quarter glass to improve airflow to the engine, which also makes the car sound better. In addition to making the GT4 RS more aerodynamic, Porsche has made it lighter by using carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic for the bonnet and front wings, as well as a lighter rear windscreen.
At the Festival of Dreams, all of Porsche’s best cars will be under one roof. At the event, Porsche India will show off all of its cars, like the 718 and 911 supercars, the Macan, Cayenne, and Cayenne Coupe SUVs, the Taycan electric vehicle, and the Panamera sedan. Porsche will also show off some unique cars and a number of models from its recently launched Porsche Approved program for buying used cars.
Also, there will be a Porsche Exclusive Manufacturer Zone, a Porsche Lifestyle Section, and a Porsche Soul Garage, where car fans can buy collector’s items, accessories, and products for keeping their cars in good shape.
On January 26, there will be both a special event for some Porsche customers and an exhibition for Porsche fans. On the Festival of Dreams website, people who are interested can sign up.
The Festival of Dreams is not the first time an Indian luxury brand has done something like this. BMW just started the Joytown festival, which brings together brands like BMW, Mini, and BMW Motorrad. The Joytown festival is still going on, and the next one will be in Bengaluru on January 28.
