Porsche Cayman Cup

I understand there are Porsche Cayman Cups in Italy and France. Maybe your answer is who cares, but I always thought Porsche doesn't want racing versions of the Cayman. Both Alzen Motorsport (VLN & Nurburgring 24h) and Prospeed (GT4) were forced to stop racing with the Cayman otherwise they could not buy 997's.

Maybe one-model series are okay because there's no possibility of beating 911s?

I am waiting for the day that Porsche decides to position the Cayman (or a hotter descendant with a different name and higher price) above the 911.

I am talking about something more long term and more (relatively) affordable than the GT. Only then would they race it.

Alzen stopped using the Cayman because the project just didn't work out and wasn't worth it. And they couldn't be scared by not being able to buy Porsche Motorsport 997s, because Jürgen Alzen does the race prep himself using standard roadworthy editions.

Porsche entering a silhouette car? Also because of the close links between Porsche and Audi I don't see that happen.

Then again Porsche's motorsports endeavours of recent years have always operated under profit. That was one of the requisites for their projects.

As far as I know, the 2007 Cayman S GT4 raced in the 2008 VdeV Endurance.

There is a spec Cayman series in North America.

At Sebring, these cars ran a 2:24 race lap, fairly pedestrian pace compared to ALMS.
