► Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport
► Testbed for a a Cayman rally car
► Tested at Rallye Deutschland
You're looking at a one-off testbed for a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport rally car. Essentially a concept car for the motorsport scene, Porsche admits it could go into production if enough privateers and teams show interest.
Announced via a tweet from Porsche Motorsport, little is known at this stage about the racing Cayman, which is designed to compete in tarmac rally stages.
'The Cayman GT4 Clubsport is just a concept car for rallys,' the tweet said. 'At the German @WRC round Rallye Deutschland we will collect feedback from the rally scene. The decision if a similar car based on a future model could be developed will be made later in the year.'
So as yet you can't buy a Clubsport, but you might be able to soon... We live in hope!
Sounds mega. Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport specs and details please
It's a conceptual look at what a 718 Cayman rally car would look like if designed to compete in the FIA R-GT category for road rallying.
Porsche has confirmed it has 380bhp from its 3.8 flat six engine, reminding us that competition GT Porsches will continue to use six-cylinder power; none of this namby-pamby downsizing to four-pots here.
As befits that evocative Clubsport badge, it's stripped back with toughened suspension, a chunky rollcage, reinforced undertray for rallying, that charismatic four-strong auxiliary lighting bar on the bonnet and a 'snorkel' air scoop on the roof. You may glimpse it being used as a course car at the German leg of the World Rally Championship later this month.
