The new Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport made its debut at the LA Autoshow. Built for amateur and club racing the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is a 385 hp mid-engine entry level racer specifically for track use. In other words, don’t try to register it, it’s not street legal.
Just like the street going version, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine, positioned directly behind the driver’s seat. The Clubsport version features a modified six-speed Porsche double clutch PDK transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel and a mechanical rear-axle locking differential specifically for racing. The lightweight strut front axle is taken from its big 911 GT3 Cup brother. An enhanced lightweight strut suspension with transverse arms, also adopted from the 911 GT3 Cup, is at the rear. The racing brake system features large 15-inch (380-millimeter) steel brake discs all round. One-piece, six-piston aluminum fixed calipers are located at the front, with a four-piston equivalent at the rear. The anti-lock brake system features twelve settings. The Electronic Stability Program has been recalibrated for slicks. The power steering is operated electro-mechanically.
Weighing in at just 2,866 pounds (1,300 kilograms), the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, is a virtually turn-key racecar, delivered from the factory with a welded-in safety cage, a racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness. The North American version comes with an 18.5 gallon (70-liter) or an optional 26.5 gallon (100-liter) FIA FT3 safety fuel tank. The Clubsport also comes with a central fire extinguisher system. Mounted on the front axle are 18-inch five-bolt forged wheels with 25/64-18 tires while the 18-inch five-lug forged wheels at the rear have 27/68-18 tires. Michelin® supplies the racing slicks.
In the USA, the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport racecar is available directly from Porsche Motorsport North America for $165,000.
