Porsche’s New $165,000 Cayman GT4 Clubsport Is A Racer’s Wet Dream

Porsche’s newest track-focused sports car is the Cayman GT4 Clubsport and it was unveiled in Los Angeles.

Following its official debut on Wednesday, Porsche places it into the spotlights once again, with the first launch film. The video is impressive and it shows the newest model in Porsche’s performance lineup in action, in a parking lot, drifting, jumping and revving its engine.

The new Cayman GT4 Clubsport is based on the street-legal Cayman GT4. Just like its counterpart, it uses the same 3.8-liter flat-six engine that delivers 385 PS (380 HP). Power is sent to rear-wheels through a double-clutch transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, unlike the regular Cayman GT4, which uses a six-speed manual.

A mechanical rear-axle locking differential, designed specifically for racing, helps maintain traction, along with the updated chassis, the reprogrammed ESP and the ABS system, which can be adjusted in 12 stages. Stopping power comes from six-piston aluminum fixed calipers at the front and rear four-piston units, with 380mm steel brake discs all round.

Porsche wants to homologate the 1,300kg (2,866lbs) sports car for a number of race series.

The order books for the racing machine are open in Europe, where it starts at €110,000 ($117,000). In the USA, the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport racecar is available from Porsche Motorsport North America for $165,000.
