New Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport is Too Extreme for the Street

Porsche has officially debuted the new race car that will be available for recreational or club racing: the Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

The car, unveiled on November 18 through a press release issued by Porsche, is based on the already successful and exciting Cayman. It’s a great addition to the Cayman range which sits between the Boxster and 911 ranges, and offers a thrilling ride for a great price.

With 385 hp on tap, it sits below the legendary 911 GT3 RS (500 hp), but that is mostly because Porsche coins this car as a “mid-engine racer for motorsport newcomers,” according to their press release. This power comes from a 3.8-liter flat-six, which exclusively features a six-speed Porsche double-clutch transmission with paddle shifters. Looks as though manual transmission fans missed out again.

Being a race car, you’d expect a light weight. Right? Porsche notes that the Cayman GT4 Clubsport weighs in at 2,866 lbs, much less than the GT3 RS’ gross vehicle weight rating of 3,792 lbs. The lighter weight was possible through the gutting of the car’s interior. Inside the bare cabin, the German automaker added the necessary safety components, like the welded-in safety cage, racing bucket seat and a six-point harness.

The press release states that the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is available for $165,000. Interested? You can order the car directly from Porsche Motorsport North America.
