New 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport Is Pure Porsche Passion

Fancy a factory-built racecar from Porsche? This may be one of the best ever.

The last generation Cayman GT4 was, and remains, one of the best Porsche dedicated sports cars of all time. We’re also very partial to the Cayman R which was offered before it but if we were in the market for a track-ready bullet, we’d make a B-Line over to Porsche for the new 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

The highlight for the GT4 is the sweet sweet normally-aspirated 3.8-litre flat-6-cylinder engine positioned where all engine should be positioned – in the mid-rear. It produces no less than 425-horsepower which represents a 40-horsepower increase over its predecessor.

Mated to the flat-6 is a 6-speed version of Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch transmission with a mechanical rear-axle differential lock. The car borrows the 911 GT3 Cup’s front suspension and features massive 380-millimeter steel brakes all around.

Thanks in part to the fact that this is the only and first ever racecar to feature natural-fiber body parts, the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport tips the scale at only 1,320 kg including welded in safety cage and racing bucket seat.

For the first time, this mid-engine racecar comes in two versions. There’s a “mild” Trackday model for clowns like us and a Competition version for the Patrick Longs of this world.

Deliveries begin in February.
