According to an article on Carscoops, Porsche Motorsport chief, Frank-Steffen Walliser, revealed the condition for the concept car to be put into production. However, the brand was very clear on having no intention to run its own rally team and the cars will very likely be raced by private competitors.
This is despite Walliser claiming that the car created a very good first impression as “even the WRC’s top five drivers all wanted to drive it.”
Purely rear-wheel driven, the rally car is a even more hardcore version of the Cayman GT4 and comes with full underbody protection, energy-absorbing foam element in the doors and auxiliary lights. It uses a 3.8-litre flat-six that produces 380bhp and is matched to a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
