For their latest 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Porsche looked into sustainable materials as an alternative to carbon fiber. That led the company to use natural-fiber composite materials based on flax or hemp fibers that were comparable to carbon fiber in weight and stiffness. Power will come from their 3.8L flat-six that produced 425 hp, which is a gain of 40 hp over the previous model.
The rear-wheel-driver race car will be equipped with a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox with a mechanical rear axle differential lock. It will also feature a racing brake system with steel 380mm brake discs, a welded-in safety cage, and a lightweight racing bucket seat with a six-point harness.
The new 718 GT4 Clubsport will be available in a Trackday version built for private track and clubsport use and a Competition model will also be available for pro racers.
Available this February.
