The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport is a GT4 racecar based on the 718 Cayman GT4 road car, and the successor of the Cayman GT4 Clubsport race car.
On 3 January 2019, the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport was unveiled in two variants, Competition and Trackday, with first customer cars delivered to customer teams ahead of the 2019 Roar Before the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona International Speedway.
The race car is powered by a 3.8-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine producing 425 PS (419 bhp; 313 kW) at 7,500 rpm and 425 N⋅m (313 lb⋅ft) at 6,600 rpm connected to a 6-speed PDK gearbox. The kerb weight is 1,320 kg (2,910 lb). Both variants feature a welded-in roll cage, a six-point harness and race bucket seat, a selection of body parts made of natural-fibre composite materials, the front suspension from the 911 GT3 Cup, racing brakes, lightweight forged wheels and slick tyres. Aerodynamics are improved over the previous generation GT4 Clubsport, including a swan neck mount rear wing. The Competition variant features 3-way adjustable shock absorbers, a 115-litre fuel cell, brake balance adjustment, a lightweight battery, a fire extinguishing system, a quick release steering wheel from the 911 GT3 R and a three-piston air jack system while the Trackday variant features fixed shock absorbers, an 80-litre fuel cell and a handheld fire extinguisher instead.
The new Porsche Sprint Challenge GB, which is made up of Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport cars, will start at Silverstone Circuit on 25 April 2020.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport was added in the Porsche Season Update as a high-end Class C car with the following statistics:
- Stock rank: 1,889 ( 1)
- rank: 2,125
- rank: 2,461 ( 25)
- rank: 2,757 ( 32)
- rank: 3,113 ( 36)
- rank: 3,727 ( 40)
At stock, the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport has all-around mediocre stats. It is a poor choice for multiplayer as the Vencer Sarthe and Arrinera Hussarya have a higher top speed while the Rezvani Beast X, Dodge Viper ACR, and Artega Scalo Superelletra are faster on technical tracks.
The key for the car could be won in its Grand Prix.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport was added in the 2020 Summer Update as a high-end Class B car with the following statistics:
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport features a very high maximum total top speed for Class B, very fast acceleration, very good handling, a sharp drifting radius and good nitro efficiency. Since the 718 Cayman GT4 CS is a Festival car, it has very poor performance in respect to its rank at low tunes.
Compared to the Acura NSX GT3 Evo, the 718 Cayman GT4 CS has roughly identical nitro efficiency. The 718 Cayman GT4 CS takes around 0.2 seconds longer than the NSX GT3 Evo to accelerate to its full speed from a standstill; 2.6 seconds as opposed to 2.4 seconds. As such, the NSX GT3 Evo is generally superior to the 718 Cayman; however, the 718 Cayman is 0.6 mph (1 km/h) faster than the NSX GT3 Evo, giving it a very slight advantage on long tracks. The NSX GT3 Evo is generally the best vehicle in Class B, whereas the 718 Cayman GT4 CS is generally the second or third-best vehicle in Class B.
The Mazda RX-8 Special Edition, McLaren MP4/8 and BMW S 1000 RR (mid-Class B) have roughly equal acceleration to the 718 Cayman GT4 CS, at 2.6 seconds. Meanwhile, the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and SCG 003S have slightly worse acceleration than the 718 Cayman GT4 CS, at 2.7 seconds. The BMW i8 Coupe, meanwhile, accelerates in 3.0 seconds, a good deal slower than the 718 Cayman GT4 CS but generally much faster than other cars in Class B. Out of all of these vehicles, the 718 Cayman GT4 CS has the highest top speed, though its nitro efficiency is relatively mediocre in comparison to most of these other vehicles aside from the RX-8 SE. The SCG 003S is a strong competitor against the 718 Cayman GT4 CS in all performance aspects aside from drifting; it has a horrendous drifting radius which renders it useless on maps such as Azure Coast which require long, consecutive drifts. Most of the other competitors listed here have very good handling and drifting.
Due to being a Festival car, the 718 Cayman GT4 CS is useless at lower upgrade levels.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport is useful in Multiplayer at full-PRO, where it competes with the Acura NSX GT3 Evo, Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and Mazda RX-8 Special Edition, as well as various other vehicles from high-end Class B and low-end Class A. Regarding Class A competitors, the SSC Tuatara, which, as an ULTIMATE car, is always ranked at 1717, can often get placed in Multiplayer races alongside the 718 Cayman GT4 CS due to poor matchmaking; the Tuatara has a higher total top speed and raw top speed compared to the 718 Cayman GT4 CS, though the Tuatara has worse acceleration.
The 718 Cayman GT4 CS would have formerly been useful at full-PRO in the weekly Class B TLEs, but these TLEs have not occurred recently and will likely not occur in the near future.
The 718 Cayman GT4 CS is the best Porsche-brand vehicle in Class B and the third-best Porsche-brand vehicle overall in the game after the Porsche Carrera GT and Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, both of which are in Class A. A Porsche-brand race is featured in the current version of Season 5: Injection in the Career Mode; the race is set on Crystal Lake, Patagonia, and it has the Ghost-recording option.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport is obtainable by reaching Tier 8 in its Festival. If viewed in the Tag Racing car selection menu, it showed a price of 12,400 when the option to buy the car is unavailable after the festival is over.
As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the 718 Cayman GT4 CS can be purchased for 1,900,000.
