Porsche Needs To Get 100 Orders To Build The Cayman GT4 Rally Car

Do you want Porsche to put the Cayman GT4 Rallye Concept into production? Well, you just need to spread the word to the right people, and only then you might see it being raced officially.

Speaking to TopGear, Porsche’s Motorsport chief, Frank-Steffen Walliser, revealed the automaker will put the rally car concept into production on one condition: “We need to sell 100 to get the green light”.

Even if Porsche achieves their goal of nabbing 100 orders for the rally car, it’s very likely that all of them will be raced by private competitors. The German automaker has no intention of running its own rally team, so they won’t return to events such as Dakar, much to the disappointment of their motorsport fans.

The Cayman GT4 Rallye Concept proved its credentials in August, when it was shown to spectators at the ADAC Rallye Deutschland. The car made a great first impression, as “even the WRC’s top five drivers all wanted to drive it”, added Walliser. “It’s pure rear-wheel drive and just the sound of the car as it comes through the woods, it’s really loud.”

Based on the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, a track-focused version of the Cayman GT4, the Rallye Concept comes with full underbody protection, energy-absorbing foam element in the doors and auxiliary lights.

The 385 PS (380 hp / 283 kW) produced by the 3.8-liter flat-six are directed to the rear axle via a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 4.4 seconds in the street-legal model, so the rally-spec should be just as quick or faster.
