Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport – Coming Soon at the Los Angeles Motor Show
Porsche does not want to change its core business which is essentially sports or to be more specific: racing! Earlier the standard was 911 GT3 Cup to get full, rich flavor of adrenalin pumpin’, heart pounding experience around the track. Now grab your helmet and balaclava and that nomex racing suite because Porsche is about to release a new light weight, full action steroid packed, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport.
Using the lightweight Cayman GT4 as the basis, Porsche Motorsport has developed a near-standard racing version. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport celebrates its world premiere at the Los Angeles Motor Show on18 November. Sales of the 283 kW (385 hp) mid-engine racer for motorsport newcomers also start on this date.

Just like its race-worthy production sibling, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine. The racing version features a Porsche double clutch transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel and a mechanical rear-axle locking differential. The lightweight suspension strut front axle is taken from its big 911 GT3 Cup brother, which is campaigned in Porsche’s 20 one-make champion-ships around the world. The impressive racing brake system is fitted with steel brake discs all round measuring 380-millimetre in diameter. Tipping the scales at just 1,300 kilograms, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, delivered ex-works with a welded-in safety cage, a racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness, is truly lightweight.
Orders for the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport can be made at Porsche Motorsport in Weissach. For 2016, homologation is planned for race series such as the Pirelli World Challenge, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada and for club races run by the Porsche Club of America as well as for other club-level meetings around the world.
Detailed information as well as photos will be made available on 18 November on the occasion of the world premiere of the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport
