Merit Partners is pleased to present this prodigiously modified GT4 Clubsport for the track enthusiast who isn’t quite satisfied with the base cars power. This car came from a good client of ours who is getting away from the track for a season to focus on some other priorities. This particular client liked the base car but wanted to address the only real weaknesses of the car, power and suspension. From owning two Clubsports, we can say here at Merit that there is not much we don’t love about the Clubsport but if we had to dream then some additional power and better suspension would be the only things we would desire. With this car, those issues have been addressed. The client took the car to John Tece at BGB Motorsports, one of the best Porsche shops in the country, and let John work his magic. John installed a 2016 Carrera GTS motor with power kit, which is a 3.8L engine and punched it out to a 4.0L. He then did headers, upgraded exhaust, bigger throttle body, plenum and Cobb Port tune. The results were outstanding; the car dyno’d at 469 hp to the wheels compared to the stock car at approximately 330 hp to the wheels. Secondly, the suspension was addressed and so MCS 3-way adjustable shocks were added in addition to an Autoquest multi-link rear suspension. What is gained from this extensive work is a car that is roughly 3-4 seconds quicker than stock with a far more adaptable suspension for a variety of tracks and conditions. The time gained from all the mods make this car very competitive with the 991.1 GT3 Cup car on any track. In total, over 85k was spent on the engine, suspension and other upgrades to the car. The bottom line is that there is not a better value on the market in Clubsports when one considers the performance of this car along with all the upgrades. It is significantly quicker than the stock Clubsport or MR.
As far as the condition of the car, it is excellent. The front bumper has been replaced with a brand new bumper due to some cracks that had developed around the splitter. The car was also re-tubbed due to an incident so though the mileage shows 9500, the chassis, engine and suspension were all done in the last few hours so the car is very fresh. This car was also not formally campaigned but served as a DE car. In addition to the engine and suspension mods, the car has the following upgrades:
