Porsche has revealed a rally concept based on its Cayman GT4 Clubsport.

Dubbed Cayman GT4 Clubsport Rally concept, it will serve as a course car during the upcoming Rallye Deutschland and is to be driven by Romain Dumas. Yes, the very same RD who piloted the VW I.D. R electric rally car to the world record at Pikes Peak recently.

While Porsche isn’t discussing details yet, we can see some interesting features in the images. The car looks a lot like the regular Cayman GT4 Clubsport but there are extra lights on the front end, a roof scoop and skid plates. White wheels clad in Michelin Pilot Sport tyres are present, as are OMP tow loops front and rear.

The standard GT4 Clubsport uses a 3.8-litre flat six pushing 283kW to the rear wheels through a six-speed PDK gearbox. The next GT4 will get a bump in power thanks to an inherited 4.0-litre flat-six from the 911 GT3 and presumably the concept will use the same mill.

The best part about all this? Porsche might actually put it into production. A decision is expected to be made later this year. Given how well off-road 911s go, how good would this be?
