Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport 01

Porsche has unveiled the newest member of the Cayman range – the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport – in Los Angeles. Unlike the rest of the family, including the head-turning Cayman GT4, the new car is a full-on track weapon that cannot be registered for road use.

Like its production counterpart, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is driven by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine mounted behind the driver’s seat, with 385 hp and 420 Nm of torque on tap. Unlike the road model that comes only with a six-speed manual, the track car gets the speedy six-speed dual-clutch PDK unit and paddle shifters.

Perhaps more important than the drivetrain is the suspension, where the Cayman GT4 Clubsport carries the setup from the 911 GT3 Cup. The car is also kitted with electro-mechanical steering, a motorsport-derived mechanical rear-axle locking differential, 380 mm brake rotors all around, 12-stage ABS as well as slick mode.

Tipping the scales at just 1,300 kilograms, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is also equipped with a roll cage, a race bucket seat as well as a six-point harness. The lean race car rolls on 18-inch forged wheels shod with Michelin slicks.

The car will be homologated for 2016 for a number of race series such as the VLN Long Distance Championship Nürburgring, the SRO GT4 series, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada and other race series organised by Porsche Clubs around the globe.
