Porsche has used the Los Angeles Auto Show to unveil the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

Designed to appeal to motorsport newcomers, the track-only model is based on the Cayman GT4 and homologation is planned for a number of different series including the VLN Long Distance Championship Nürburgring, the SRO GT4 series, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada, and club races run by the Porsche Club of America.

Since the model was designed for racing, it features a strut front axle and rear strut suspension sourced from the 911 GT3 Cup.  The model also has a 12-stage adjustable anti-lock braking system and a revised Electronic Stability Program that works with racing slicks.  There's also a race-spec braking system with six-piston aluminum front calipers, four-piston rear calipers, and 380mm steel brake discs all around.  Other highlights include a roll cage, a racing seat with a six-point harness, and 18-inch forged wheels with Michelin tires.

Motivation is provided by a 3.8-liter flat-six engine that develops 380 bhp (385 PS / 283 kW).  It is connected to a modified dual-clutch transmission which sends power to the ground via a racing-spec mechanical locking rear differential.

Porsche is currently accepting orders for the car and German pricing starts at €111,000 (excluding VAT).
