KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is the engine displacement of the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport?

    The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport has a 4.0-liter engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
  • What features make the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport a track-ready vehicle?

    Porsche says that the new 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport comes with adjustable double-blade anti-roll bars, two-way racing adjustable shock absorbers, large race brakes with 380mm multi-piece rotors, Recaro racing seats, and six-point harnesses with 2023 FIA standard.
  • “We thrive on competition, and we'll always push for improvements,” said Porsche Motorsport North America President and CEO Volker Holzmeyer.

    Holzmeyer added, “This is what our customer teams expect of us and what we demand of ourselves at Porsche. Acting on their feedback, we’ve made the new 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport more capable than ever. It’s quicker, even more rewarding and confidence-inspiring to drive — exactly what drivers competing in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge and SRO series need to be successful.”

    The new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport packs a 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine taken directly from the 911 GT3 Cup race car and gives the 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport 500 horses.

    The powerplant is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK), replacing the GT4 Clubsport’s six-speed version.

    In addition, the homologated 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport is track-ready from the factory and can be used in SRO racing series around the world without further modifications. In photo below are a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport (left) and a Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS (right).
