Im somewhat disappointed.

It's still a 9A1 with .2 GT3 Intake Manifold, Throttle Body and X51 Intake cam. The Bore, Stroke and Compression ratio are identical. 425hp vs. 385hp over the Previous gen. That gap in HP can easily be overcome. The Torque is a whopping 5lbs difference.

We'll see what the Street GT4 has this March during the Geneva Auto Show.

99% of us can't afford such race car. the old Cayman GT4 is about 20k for just the setup work before the car is ready to run. In every race weekend, each race car requires a minimum of one data engineer and another race mechanic.

I was invited to thermal last year because I have a friend who is a race car data engineer and he works for GMG racing. it was a relax test day which I can sit into most of their race cars such as Cayman GT4, 991 GT3 cup, Mclaren 570 GT4, Huracan Trefeo, etc. these things are very expensive to operate. Road cars are not comparable at all.

Nice! Thanks for the pics.

So why is there a "trackday" version of the clubsport if you can't drive it to and from the track?

any factory prepared race car isn’t something average people can imagine. It is not something to bring to race track occasionally. These things are meant to be business, not a toy in our garage.

These things cost thousands of dollars an hour to run, you don't drive them to and from the track. I looked into running costs on a 996 GT3 Cup a while ago since they are pretty attainable and much lower tech than 997+ but it is still absurd.

This. You have to be very very very rich to have & run one of these. The purchase price is just a drop in the bucket in what you'll spend on running the car.

The car is the cheap part, keeping it running and entering it in races is what will kill your checkbook.
