Porsche is set to put its new Cayman GT4 Clubsport Rallye Concept through its paces at the ADAC Rallye Deutschland, happening later this month.
Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars said, “We’re looking forward to seeing how the rally world responds to our FIA R-GT concept study. I would like to invite every interested driver and team principal to visit the service park and take a close look at our rally concept car.”
Piloting the Cayman is Porsche works driver Romain Dumas, a Le Mans veteran that has taken part in various rallies around the world with his own team. Dumas has also won the legendary Pikes Peak hill-climb challenge 4 times and holds a record there. Richard Lietz and Timo Bernhard are also involved in the test programme.
“Based on the feedback and the interest from potential customers, we will then decide by the end of the year whether we’ll develop in the mid-term a competition car for near-standard rallying based on a future Porsche model,” Walliser added.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport is powered by a 3.8-litre flat-six that does 380 hp, sent to the rear wheels via a Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission. For rallying, Porsche has fitted full underbody protection.
