Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport (2016)


Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Porsche Motorsport has developed a near-production race version of the lightweight Cayman GT4 sports car. Advance sales of the 283-kW (385-hp) mid-engine race car for entry-level motor racing begins simultaneously with the start of the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Exactly like its standard production counterpart that is already extremely well suited for the racetrack, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine. The race version is exclusively equipped with a Porsche Doppelkupplung with shift paddles at the steering wheel and a mechanical rear differential. The lightweight spring-strut front suspension comes from its larger brother, the 911 GT3 Cup, which competes in 20 Porsche brand cup race series worldwide.

The generously sized race brake system is equipped with steel rotors that are each 380 mm in diameter. At just 1,300 kg, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is a genuine lightweight race car, featuring a welded-in safety cage, racing bucket seat and 6-point safety harness as standard equipment.

The new Cayman GT4 Clubsport can be ordered from Porsche Motorsport in Weissach or from Porsche Motorsport North America for the North American market.

For 2016, it will be homologated for race series such as the Pirelli World Challenge, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy in the USA, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge in Canada and for club racing of the Porsche Club of America as well as other race events on the club sport level across the globe.
