Porsche has announced details of its all-new Cayman GT4 Clubsport at its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The mid-engine racer is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six engine that produces 385hp. The racing version exclusively features a modified six-speed Porsche double clutch 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, which is campaigned in Porsche’s 20 one-make championships around the world. Working at the rear is an enhanced lightweight strut suspension with transverse arms adopted from the 911 GT3 Cup. The impressively dimensioned racing brake system features 380-millimetre steel brake discs all round. Fitted at the front are one-piece, six-piston aluminium fixed callipers, with a four-piston equivalent at the rear. The anti-lock brake system can be adjusted in twelve stages. The Electronic Stability Programme has been expanded for slicks. The power steering is operated electro-mechanically.
The new Cayman GT4 Clubsport, which is available from 111,000 euro plus country-specific VAT, can be ordered immediately from Porsche Motorsport in Weissach. For 2016, homologation is planned for race series such as 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 club races run by the Porsche Club of America, as well as for other club-level meetings around the world.
