Cayman GT4 Rally Car

Recommended Posts

Rumours are mounting regarding a Cayman GT4 rally car.

Stuttgart is currently working on a rally derivative of the the GT4 based on the previous gen car.  The company’s motorsport arm posted on Twitter the other day a series of images of a rally car study based on the current Cayman GT Clubsport.  The car will serve as a course car later this month during the Rallye Deutschland and is going to be driven by Romain Dumas, none other than the new record holder at Pikes Peak with the I.D. R electric rally car.

 

Porsche has not been forth coming with details of the drive train and other interesting bits, but has said it will decide on a production version later this year.  The car appears to be based on a 981 GT4 Clubsport, but with extra modifications customary to a rally car such as the light pod on the bonnet, a roof air intake, and a very flat underside presumably for both protection and aerodynamics.  

 

We await news and will be watching to see how this develops.  It will be the first time Porsche has entered a factory car into a rally event since the very early 1980s.

Excellent news ?

 

Maybe similar to those run at Pikes Peak recently  ...

I got the impression that the gear ratios of the GT4 were not best suited to Pikes Peak, especially 1st and 2nd.
