Porsche reentered the mid-engine market in the mid-1990s with its Boxster roadster, but it was not until the Frankfurt Motor Show in the fall of 2005 that Porsche debuted a proper, track-ready hardtop version. When the Cayman found its way into the hands of skilled drivers, it proved well worth the wait. Walter Röhl lapped Germany’s Nürburgring in 8 minutes, 11 seconds – four seconds faster than his time in a contemporary 911 Carrera.

The Cayman and Boxster were revamped for the 2012 model year with a new platform, more power, and an available reworked seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In 2015, Porsche wowed enthusiasts with the Cayman GT4. Tucked behind the passenger compartment was a version of the 3.8-liter flat-six from the 911 Carrera S. A lowered suspension, upgraded brakes cribbed from the 911 GT3, and enhanced aerodynamics made it a true track star. However, this was no mere weekend warrior special. The Cayman GT4 also boasted a beefier chassis and a cage integrated into its interior. A Recaro racing seat with a six-point harness held the driver in place, while a factory-supplied fire extinguisher and preparation for a battery cutoff switch signaled the GT4’s competitive intentions.

Debuting at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in racing livery, the GT4 Clubsport did away with any road-going pretentions. A version of Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch gearbox sends power rearward via a mechanically locking rear differential. With a spec sheet that includes adjustable ABS brakes, 911 GT3 Cup-supplied suspension components, a full, welded-in cage, and Schroth six-point racing harnesses, the GT4 Clubsport was built ready to race.

The 2016 example presented here displays solely delivery mileage – less than 40 kilometers – and was acquired by the consignor in April 2016. It is finished in white with the requisite racing gear, such as the adjustable rear spoiler, hood pins for the front trunk, and of course, a bare-bones interior that keeps curb weight down to about 2,870 lbs. unladen. The car was optioned with factory air conditioning, a boon for stints between the paddock and the track, the air jack system, and a Recaro racing seat from the 991 GT3 Cup. The GT4 will also be delivered with the “Spare Parts Package,” which includes two sets of front and rear brake rotors, several sets of brake pads, as well as a set of extra wheels.

This GT4 Clubsport was one of the last to leave the factory, and it is ready for either continued preservation or for spirited competition around the world’s most exciting race tracks.
