New Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport Was Made For The Track

The next chapter to Porsche’s Cayman GT4 series is the Clubsport racing edition built for motorsport newcomers.

This is a non-road homologated, track-focused version of the street-legal Cayman GT4, and it goes on sale today with European pricing starting from 110,000 euros, or the equivalent of $117,000 (US pricing hasn’t been released yet).

It uses the same 3.8-liter flat-six engine, positioned behind the driver’s seat as the GT4 road car, with output remaining unchanged at 385PS (380hp), but unlike the former that comes with a six-speed manual, the Clubsport embraces a double clutch transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel paired to a mechanical rear-axle locking differential specifically designed for racing.

Porsche also made changes to the chassis with both the front axle and the lightweight strut rear suspension with transverse arms borrowed from the racing 911 GT3 Cup. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport stops with the help of 380mm steel brake discs all round, with the front featuring one-piece, six-piston aluminum fixed calipers, and the rear, four-piston units.

Other upgrades include an anti-lock braking system that can be adjusted in twelve stages, and a reprogrammed Electronic Stability Program so it can be used with slick tires. It rides on 18-inch forged rims shod in Michelin rubber and also comes with a welded-in safety cage, a racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness.

The Cayman GT4 Clubsport tips the scales at 1,300kg (2,866 pounds), and it features a 90-liter stand tank, with buyers having the option of 70- or 100-liter FT3 safety tank.

Porsche said that it plans to homologate the car for a number of race series, including the VLN Long Distance Championship Nürburgring, the SRO GT4 series, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada and for a variety of races run by the Porsche Clubs around the world.
