Porsche has selected the Dunlop Sport Maxx Race 2 tire for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS.
Dunlop Sport Maxx Race 2 is designed to give drivers intense grip in dry conditions and balance cornering under high G-forces, especially for high-performance sports cars like the 718 Cayman GT4 RS. According to the companies, the tire’s ability to perform on the road and track is ideal for the track-oriented Cayman GT4 RS, which combines the racing background of Porsche’s motorsport division with the refinement of the popular 718 Cayman. The increased lateral stiffness, block stability and resistance to flex enable Dunlop Sport Maxx Race 2 to remain stable under high G-forces, while an even pressure distribution across the tire’s footprint allows drivers to enjoy precise steering and control.
The Dunlop Sport Maxx Race 2 is available as an N2-rated original equipment (OE) option on the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS. The N2 version is also homologated by Porsche for use on the 718 Cayman GT4, in sizes 245/35ZR20 (front) and 295/30ZR20 (rear).
Hans Vrijsen, managing director of consumer original equipment (OE) for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) division of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, said, “Dunlop Sport Maxx Race 2 is designed to unleash the potential of sports cars, so we’re proud that Porsche has chosen another Dunlop tire as OE and N-rated fitments on the new 718 Cayman GT4 RS. The performance credentials of the 718 Cayman GT4 RS speak for themselves, and we know that owners will be able to enjoy its road and track abilities to the fullest with the intense grip and balanced cornering delivered by Sport Maxx Race 2.”
