Porsche's Hardcore Track-Only Cayman Proves NA Engines Aren't Dead Yet

Reveal

Coming to a track near you soon.

The 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show will be an awesome place for Porsche enthusiasts. The German automaker has just announced that the hardcore, track-only version of its Cayman GT4 (seen here in its street-legal form) will be unveiled at the show. The GT4 Clubsport comes ready to race out of the box with a ton of weight shaved off and all of the safety features needed in a track car. Porsche has moved pretty quick on the Clubsport as the Cayman GT4 debuted only several months ago back in Geneva.

Powering the Cayman GT4 Clubsport is a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six mated to a dual-clutch transmission. The Clubsport borrows its "lightweight suspension strut front axle system" from the 911 GT3 Cup and also sports all-around steel disc brakes. As you expect in a track-only car the interior has been stripped clean with only a single seat and roll cage remaining, bringing the Cayman’s weight down to 2,866 pounds. Pricing and availability haven't been announced but we’ll (likely) have that info and live shots of the Cayman GT4 Clubsport when it makes its debut in LA come November.
