    Default Porsche develops cayman gt4 clubsport

    No photos provided by PCNA.

    Using the recently released lightweight Cayman GT4 as the basis, Porsche Motorsport has developed a racing version solely for the track. The 385 hp (283 kW) mid-engine racer Cayman GT4 Clubsport will celebrate its world premiere on November 18 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

    Like its production sibling, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine. The racing version features a Porsche double clutch transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel and a mechanical rear-axle locking differential. The lightweight suspension strut front axle system is taken from its big 911 GT3 Cup brother, which is campaigned in Porsche’s 20 one-make championships around the world. The impressive racing brake system is fitted with steel brake discs all round measuring 380-millimeters in diameter. Tipping the scales at just 2866 lbs. (1,300 kilograms), the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, delivered from the factory with a welded-in safety cage, a racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness, is truly lightweight.

    Orders for the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport can be made at Porsche Motorsport in Weissach, or from Porsche Motorsport North America for the North American market. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport is not street legal; therefore, authorized Porsche dealers in the U.S. will not offer it for sale.

    For 2016, homologation is planned for race series such as the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge™, the Porsche Club of America™, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA™, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada™, the Pirelli World Challenge™ and for other club-level meetings around the world.

    Detailed information as well as photos will be available beginning November 18, 2015 at the world premiere of the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

    Car is not street legal. Thus not able to order from dealer. That's good news, as posers won't be able to drive up price !!!

    Somewhere in this article is a penis joke just waiting to erupt.

    In a report from a Europe, the price to buy the base configuration Cayman GT4 race car is purported to be $105,000 US. There will be spares packages and add-ons for various series.
