Porsche’s Baby Race Car Is An Extreme Track Weapon in the Cayman GT4 Clubsport

Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport

As one of the most beloved automakers, Porsche has a habit of doing the impossible. When enthusiasts claimed that a Cayman equipped with an engine from the larger, more powerful 911 was impossible, the automaker made it happen with the Cayman GT4. Now, the Porsche returns with a car that replicates this astonishment—the track-only Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

Based on the capable Cayman GT4, the Clubsport is a purpose-built weapon that knows how to do only one thing: demolish the track. Everything about the Clubsport underscores the race car’s hardcore nature. Enthusiasts brave enough to get behind the wheel of the Clubsport will be able to experience one of Porsche’s purest, most rewarding, and most capable machines.

From the outside, the Clubsport’s silhouette mirrors the road-going GT4, such as the massive wing, large diffuser, and robust vents. But it also features some racing-inspired components.

  • Bright gray and yellow livery
  • Race-spec wheels

On the inside, the Clubsport ditches standard seats for a racing bucket seat with a six-point harness that fits like a tailored suit. Once nestled into the bucket seat, drivers get to enjoy a stripped-out interior, completely revealing its welded-in safety roll cage. Don’t expect to find any creature comforts because this Porsche has been streamlined to cut weight—so leave the frappucino at home.

The Clubsport’s cabin is not only meant to save weight, but to also allow the driver to focus on setting a blistering lap time. Once strapped into the race car, a bespoke instrument cluster and a flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara provide the driver with pertinent information and a precise tool to control the vehicle with.

Firing up the Clubsport’s engine reveals the same visceral sound that’s emitted from the road-going GT4. To provide drivers with white-knuckle performance, the Clubsport features the 3.8-liter flat-six engine as the GT4 and 911 Carrera S.

  • 385 HP
  • 308 lb.-ft. torque

Gone is the GT4’s six-speed manual transmission; in its place is a more track-friendly six-speed, dual-clutch gearbox boasting instantaneous gear changes. With its scant weight of roughly 2,900 lbs., drivers will have a hard time with keeping up with the Clubsport’s speed. And built with the same lightweight suspension setup as the more powerful 911 GT3 Cup, drivers will thank the gripping bucket seats as the Clubsport devours the corners.

When you’re traveling at a high rate of speed, your ability to stop is equally important to your ability to accelerate. Thanks to a racing-inspired braking system comprised of 15-in. steel rotors on all four corners, six-piston calipers at the front, and four-piston calipers at the back, the Clubsport’s braking performance simply remains unrivaled. There are 12 stages to the anti-lock brake system, and the Electronic Stability Programming has been altered to account for slick tires to provide novice drivers with the utmost of confidence.

Everything about the Clubsport communicates Porsche’s rich racing heritage and is the ultimate way for enthusiasts looking to get onto the track with a bang.
