The first two promo videos depicting the all new Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport have been released into the wild, following the official public unveiling during the recent Los Angeles Auto Show.
Porsche has decided the entry-level track enthusiasts should brag about their pedigree racer, with the Cayman GT4 Clubsport being illegal to drive on public roads – availability for wannabe café racers will start next year. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport is already tipped to enter a wide array of competitions such as the SRO GT4, VLN Long Distance Championship Nürburgring, and the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA. It has also been announced as an entry into the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada and the myriad of races disputed under the patronage of Porsche Club of America. For those interested in reaching out to the track, the order books have been opened already and Porsche is asking 111,000 euros (without VAT) in Germany and $165,000 in United States.
Race capabilities are enhanced by the presence of an all new raking system with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers mated to 380-mm steel discs. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport has a standard roll cage and uses 18-inch forged wheels, while the weight loosing intensive regimen from the Porsche engineers has shaved off 84 lbs (38 kg), with the scale tipped now at 2,866 lbs (1,300 kg). Under the hood resides the flat-six 3.8-liter that has been modified for the intensive usage of motorsport participation and now delivers 380 bhp (283 kW) – sent to the wheels via a bespoke dual-clutch gearbox and a race-spec mechanical locking differential.
