Porsche reveal Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Porsche has unveiled its track-only Cayman GT4 race car at the LA Auto Show. The GT4 Clubsport is the extreme version of the road-going Cayman GT4 – lighter and faster than the standard model.

The race car uses the same engine as the road-ready Cayman GT4, a 3.8 litre flat-six with the same power output of 380bhp.  However the Clubsport features a 6-speed double clutch gearbox with wheel-mounted paddleshifts, in place of the production car’s 6-speed manual transmission.

The Clubsport has been stripped back, swapping seats for racing buckets and weighs 40kg less overall, despite the welded-in roll cage.  The ABS system can be adjusted through 12 different settings, and comes with 380mm steel disc brakes. The stability control system has been adjusted with a setting for slick tyres.

The GT4 Clubman will be priced at £93,400, and will be available for teams and private buyers from 2016.
