Jeff Knoespel

Porsche debuted the track version of its celebrated road-going Porsche Cayman GT4, the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Sales of the superior-balanced 911's kid brother started immediately at debut for a racecar-bargain $165,000, ready to be raced in several race series around the world.

The GT4 Clubsport is powered by the production-based 3.8L flat-six from the road-going GT4, and a six-speed PDK transmission with paddles on the steering wheel. It tips the scales at 2,866lbs (1,300kgs), and boast suspension bits from the 911 GT3 Cup.

If you have recently found yourself the heir of an inheritance, here is your chance to show off your amateur racing prowess in one of the most capable and well-handling production-based cars from Porsche, a company steeped in motorsport tradition.
