Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport introduced at LA Auto Show
Porsche Motorsport has introduced a new Cayman GT4 Clubsport at Los Angeles Auto Show. Sales of the 385-hp mid-engine race car for entry-level motor racing begins simultaneously with the introduction. The new car can be oreder from Porsche Motorsport in Weissach or from Porsche Motorsport North America.
Exactly like its standard production counterpart that is already extremely well suited for the racetrack, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine. The race version is exclusively equipped with a Porsche Doppelkupplung with shift paddles at the steering wheel and a mechanical rear differential. The lightweight spring-strut front suspension comes from its larger brother, the 911 GT3 Cup. The generously sized race brake system is equipped with steel rotors that are each 380 mm in diameter. At just 1,300 kg, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is a genuine lightweight race car, featuring a welded-in safety cage, racing bucket seat and 6-point safety harness as standard equipment.
For 2016, it will be homologated for race series such as the Pirelli World Challenge or the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge in North America. In Europe it will be interestign for teams in various national and international GT series or endurance series like VLN or 24H Series.
