If you’re hoping to buy the track-only Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport, you’d better start saving up now. A leaked document reveals that the GT4 Clubsport will cost racers a cool $165,000, plus taxes. That’s up from the $85,595 base price of the standard Cayman GT4 road car.
Of course, the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport is a serious machine. It builds on the street-legal Cayman GT4, packing the 3.8-liter flat-six engine from the outgoing Porsche 911 Carrera S, as well as the front strut suspension from a 911 GT3 Cup car, 15-inch diameter race brakes, a locking rear differential, and a stripped-out interior that cuts the car’s curb weight to just 2,866 lb. A welded roll cage and a racing bucket seat with a six-point harness are also standard. Buyers can also elect an 18.5-gallon fuel tank and a fire-suppression system.
Other factory options are reportedly limited to air jacks ($4,200), Recaro bucket seats ($3,900), and a package of spare parts that will cost between $9,000 and $10,000. The spares kit includes a replacement front and rear bumper, as well as new brakes and wheels. That could put the car’s true sticker price at $182,100-$183,100.
According to the new pricing document, the first units of the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport will reach U.S. customers in February 2016. The car is designed to be legal for various racing series, including the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada, and the Pirelli World Challenge.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport will make its official debut in November at the Los Angeles auto show. So far, Porsche has not even shown photos of the track machine; the standard GT4 road car is pictured.
