Porsche has unveiled the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Cayman GT4 Clubsport is priced at Rs.78.52 Lakhs and can be ordered immediately from Porsche Motorsport in Weissach. This mid-engine racer car is for motorsport newcomers, which is not road homologated. Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport is based on the successful street-legal Cayman GT4 sports car.
Just like its exceptionally race-worthy production sibling, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8L, flat-six engine, positioned directly behind the driver’s seat. The racing version exclusively features a modified 6-speed Porsche double clutch transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel and a mechanical rear-axle locking differential specifically for racing. The lightweight strut front axle is taken from its big 911 GT3 Cup brother, which is campaigned in Porsche’s 20 one-make championships around the world. Working at the rear is an enhanced lightweight strut suspension with transverse arms adopted from the 911 GT3 Cup. The impressively dimensioned racing brake system features 380-millimetre steel brake discs all round.
Tipping the scales at just 1,300 kilograms, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, delivered ex-works with a welded-in safety cage, a racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness, is truly lightweight. The basic version is equipped with a 90-litre standard tank, with an optional 70-litre or 100-litre FT3 safety tank available. Mounted at the front axle are 18-inch five-bolt forged rims with Michelin tyres (25/64-18), with 18-inch five-bolt forged rims at the rear with 27/68-18 tyre dimensions.
