At this month’s Frankfurt Motorshow, iRacing’s Steve Myers confirmed the long-running PC sim will expand its Porsche lineup further in 2019. The latest addition? The 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.
iRacing had a presence at the bi-annual extravaganza thanks to the Porsche Esports Supercup. The special race featured six of the top drivers in the league, all competing for cash (and the entertainment of the Frankfurt crowd). During the presentation Myers stated the littlest Porsche race car would soon be available for all iRacing players. Currently there’s no exact date nor price available, only that it will arrive in winter.

The 718 CS is a slightly different beast to the new road-going GT4. The track car uses the previous-generation 3.8-liter engine, good for 385hp or so, depending on the series. One such series, the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, pits it against another recent addition to iRacing, the Audi RS3 LMS. Once the Cayman has arrived, it will bump the iRacing Porsche count to four, alongside a legacy RUF model.
Stay tuned for more details over the coming months.
