Porsche has disclosed plans to stage the world premiere of the Cayman GT4 Clubsport in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

It turns out that mysterious hardcore Cayman GT4 spotted a few months ago was indeed a track-only version as Porsche announced today a motorsport-spec variant will be show next month in L.A. with a flat-six 3.8-liter engine pushing out 385 bhp (283 kW) just like it does in the road-going car. While the regular model tips the scales at 1,340 kg (2,954 lbs), its racing sibling weighs 40 kg (88 lbs) less and comes with a racing bucket seat, six-point harness and a welded-in safety cage.

Other changes include a lightweight strut front suspension borrowed from the 911 GT3 Cup, along with a mechanical rear-axle differential and a race-spec braking system featuring steel discs that measure 380 mm for all four wheels. The six-cylinder engine will work together with a double clutch transmission equipped with shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel

Full details will be released on November 18 when the Cayman GT4 Clubsport will be unveiled in L.A. Porsche Motorsport says the racecar will be homologated for various racing series such as Pirelli World Challenge, Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy USA, Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge Canada and also for club races organized by Porsche Club of America and other clubs from all over the world.

The order books will also open on November 18 and European customers will be able to buy the car through the Porsche Motorsport in Weissach while in United States it will be available via Porsche Motorsport North America.
