New Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 revealed in race car guise

Porsche is preparing a successor to the awesome Cayman GT4, based on its updated 718 Cayman, but prior to the car’s arrival in the coming months the German firm has shown the racing variant: the 2019 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

The race car provides plenty of clues for the upcoming road car, namely the choice of powertrain, in this case a 3.8-liter flat-6 generating 425 horsepower, or 40 hp more than before. Torque measures at 313 pound-feet, up 3 lb-ft.

The mid-mounted engine is mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission and sends drive to the rear axle, which features a mechanical differential lock.
