Exotic cars and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the exotic automotive industry and even specific vehicles altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular products available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
Porsche Design 718 Cayman GT4 RS Chronograph
The Porsche Design brand is a branch of the German automotive manufacture assembled to take the lifestyle of Porsche to of the driver seat and onto the fashion runway. With its collections of luxury apparel and accessories, Porsche Design embodies the same quality and attention to detail as the performance-focused vehicles coming off the production line. As a collaborative effort with the release of the all-new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS, Porsche Design is proud to welcome the 718 Cayman GT4 RS Chronograph as part of its Exclusive Vehicle Watch Collection. The new Porsche Design Chronograph is meant to highlight all the best qualities of the Porsche GT4 RS while continuing to operate as a functional daily timepiece for any owner. The Porsche Design GT4 RS Chronograph and Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS complement each other perfectly for any on or off-track experience.
The commemorative piece is available only for the lucky new owners of the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS. The Porsche Design GT4 RS Chronograph is presented in two configurations, one being the Weissach Package Edition. The case design is crafted from lightweight titanium, which is offered in natural silver or black PVD. The chronograph dial layout clearly displays the multitude of functions with a choice of black or carbon fiber to style the timepiece. The engine that drives the new GT4 RS Chronograph is Porsche Design’s in-house Calibre WERK 01.200 movement, which provides a lengthy 48-hour power reserve. The transparent backcase features a GT4 RS wheel as the rotor, which allows for a close look at the inner working of the watch. Taking inspiration from the interior of its new performance chassis, Porsche Design adds a comfortable black Alcantara strap with the GT4 RS logo proudly stamped into the center. The all-new Porsche Design GT4 RS Chronograph is available for Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS owners, with the option to further customize the watch for select markets.

Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS
Porsche presents itself as a brand that continues to push the boundaries of design and performance through its line of versatile sports cars. While every model incorporates an aspect of sports driving, the growing collection of GT cars are what Porsche offers as the closest representation of a track car for the public roads. Since its initial launch in 2015, the Porsche Cayman GT4 grew in popularity as the well-priced track-inspired option that included perfect weight and power distribution. Porsche is proud to take a step further by offering the all-new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS, the new flagship model in the 718 family.
The new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS features more performance and a lighter construction to help break the mold of the previous generation Cayman GT4. Starting with the heart of the beast, Porsche adds a naturally-aspirated flat-six engine that revs to 9,000 rpm and makes an impressive 493-horsepower and 331-lb ft of torque. The power is managed through the available options of either an automatic PDK or 6-speed manual transmission, which is Porsche’s homage to keeping three-pedal production cars on the road and track. The exterior of the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS incorporates a lightweight carbon fiber front splitter, hood, fender vents, rear diffuser, and swan neck wing to provide the appropriate aerodynamics while at high speeds. While the exterior of the Porsche GT4 RS boasts a modest design for the RS family, the interior layout portrays an aggressive sport-like feel with optioned Weissach Package sport seats, sports Chrono gauge, and carbon fiber trim accents. The welcoming interior design makes it the perfect driving experience for any driver level. The all-new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is best described as a mid-engined sports car with racing DNA that offers maximum driving pleasure.
Why To Buy
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS is the best addition to any garage because of its versatility as a performance supercar for the road and track. Designed as an aggressively modest body style, the Porsche GT4 RS is incognito for most but a head-turning example for any automotive enthusiasts. The configuration process allows each new owner to incorporate their own vision when ordering a 718 Cayman GT4 RS, making each build limitless.
