DIN weight = car with 90% fuel, no driver, no cargo. Weight of German versions with standard equipment.

As the 919 Hybrid was not made available for customer racing teams, the RS Spyder was the last mid-engined racing car that Porsche made for its customers. Until Cayman GT4 CS.

The GT4 racing version has the same 911 3.8-litre 283 kW engine as the street legal GT4. The car is confusingly named as the GT4 Clubsport. Clubsport versions were always street legal, but not the GT4 CS. The difference between professional racing and amateur club racing was the fact that you could drive to the club sport events and back home. The racing version of the GT4 is available only with the PDK automatic gearbox and is solely destined for private racing drivers (Porsche works teams use sequential gearboxes for racing). The suspension has been adapted from the 911 991 GT3 Cup. Although the 18" wheels and tyres of the racing GT4 are much lighter than the 20" units on the street version, at 1300 kg/2866 lb, the stripped out racing version is only 40 kg/88 lb lighter than the street legal version because of the full rollcage and heavier automatic gearbox. Like all racing Porsches, the racing version of the GT4 is a Porsche Motorsport product (not available from Porsche dealers).
