Motorsports Monday: 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport

The popularity of track days and amateur racing is at perhaps an all-time high, with seeming countless versions of track-prepared options out there. Back in the 1970s, there were basically no track-ready options available. Even when supposed track-derived cars arrived in the 1980s, they wouldn’t hold up to hot-lapping for very long. But today you can pop down to your Porsche, Audi, Aston Martin, Ferrari, and even Bentley dealer and walk out with a full factory prepared race car. The Porsche model which traditionally has carried this flame was the 911, first with the RS models followed by the GT3. But they’ve gotten hugely expensive, and Porsche has another popular track platform in the Cayman. Recently gussied up for track duty in the GT4 model everyone is swooning about, the Cayman is better prepared than ever to take on your favorite track. And by track, for many that means garage, waiting for the model to appreciate. But Porsche also released a full turn-key race version of the Cayman to the public this past year. With a mid-mounted 385 horsepower 3.8 flat-6, motivation wouldn’t be a problem. Porsche ups the track-bias with the 6-speed PDK, a factory roll cage, gutted interior and lightweight aluminum/steel hybrid panels, 15″ 6/4 piston brakes, and a slew of GT3 bits. You could even get a 26 gallon endurance fuel tank. But unlike the normal Porsche factory race cars, this fully-prepped GT4 Clubsport would run out the door at $165,000:

A much cheaper option to buy new than the GT3 Cup, and cheaper to run, too, the GT4 Clubsport really sounds like a winner if you’ve got the massive resources to race brand new cars. They’re also quite rare, so if it’s kept pristine they should retain most of their value for a while. With under 1,000 miles on this 2016 model and in what appears to be basically perfect condition, you’re not likely to save much of anything over MSRP. Indeed, the reserve is unmet on this auction at $150,000. Simple math will tell you that money will buy two sticker-priced road-going GT4s, but for a full factory, limited production Porsche race car, even the original $165,000 sounds like a bargain – more so when you consider the premiums attached to the GT4 name right now.
