The 718 GT4 is the next big thing to come from Porsche and the car is confirmed to rely on the same flat-6 engine that is being used on the 911 GT3. However, the 718 GT4 will be detuned for a lower power output and this is so that the latest 911 GT3 won’t be affected by the upcoming car.
Some enthusiasts are already disappointed by this outcome as they feel that the detuning process will show that Porsche is not willing to go all-out with their production. While that may be partly true, the 718 GT4 will still be a fast car despite getting a nerfed engine.
We can confirm on this after seeing the first batch of spy shots surrounding the 718 GT4. In those shots, the GT4 can be seen running some tests on the Nurburgring. Any car that gets tested on the legendary track prior to its debut always end up being fast, or at least satisfying on the performance front.
As such, we can safely say that the 718 GT4 will be fast, especially when it is carrying Porsche’s reputation in the performance market.
