The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport has been confirmed and it will debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Porsche has made a big fuzz about the Cayman GT4, when it pulled the wraps off its body during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. But the hot sports car might be soon forgotten as the German brand is planning the introduction of an even hotter variant, the so-called Cayman GT4 Clubsport. The model has been confirmed officially and it will be shown at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.
However, before rushing over to your local Porsche dealership to place an order, you should know that the Cayman GT4 Clubsport will be limited to the track because the carmaker will be homologated for various racing series like the Pirelli World Challenge, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge and various events organized by Porsche Club of America and other clubs from across the globe.
The upcoming Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport will be making use of an updated body kit, which will bring new front and rear bumpers, a large rear wing, a rear diffuser and probably some extended fenders. These will have a huge role, that of improving the aerodynamics of the racer. The company has also added a lightweight strut front suspension system, borrowed from the 911 GT3 Cup, along with the race-spec braking system with steel discs measuring 380 mm on all four wheels and a mechanical rear-axle differential.
The most important part of the racer is found under its hood and, despite not knowing exactly what this will be, expect a six-cylinder engine which will be working together with the double-clutch transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The interior design of the new Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport will be stripped down so no radio or air conditioning units will be found here. However, a roll cage, a bucket seat with a six-point harness, a racing steering wheel, a fire extinguisher and so on will feel right at home. The order books will be opened on November 18. U.S. customers will buy the car through Porsche Motorsport North American and European customers will get it through Porsche Motorsport in Weissach.
