Without much ado, Porsche has quietly revealed one of their best creations to date, a car that can possibly do what the 959 was built for – rally. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport Rallye is a full-blown race-spec Cayman that gets much better underbody protection, a custom suspension package with off-road tyres and it runs a little higher off the ground.
The roof-scoop, the auxiliary LED headlamp rack and the strapped tow hook complete its ‘rally look’ along with the large carbon-fibre spoiler bolted onto the boot lid. The 380bhp 3.8-litre boxer engine might be paired with a six-speed PDK transmission unit which sends power to all four wheels.
According to Porsche, the Clubsport Rallye will make its debut at the Rallye Deutschland and will be piloted by none other than Romain Dumas, the current Pikes Peak record holder. Which means, for once we will actually be seeing a product being practically tested in the real world situation as a part of its launch program.
Also, Porsche is certainly interested if an opportunity of taking this car into production presents itself in terms of buyer interests and potential rally-comeback. Who knows, we may very well see the reincarnation of the 959, completing its rallying dreams!
