On sale from February 2011 priced from £51,731 the new Porsche Cayman R is the latest model and third version in the Porsche Cayman range.
This newest member of the mid-engined Porsche Cayman family features the highly efficient 3.4-litre, flat six-cylinder Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) boxer engine found in the Cayman S, but it has been tuned to produce an additional 10 hp. The Porsche Cayman R is capable of 0-62mph in 5.0 seconds which is two tenths faster than the Porsche Cayman S. With the optional seven-speed dual-clutch PDK (Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) transmission and the Sport Chrono package, the exercise is reduced to 4.7 seconds. The Porsche Cayman R with the manual transmission has a top speed of 175mph and 174mph with the PDK.
The exterior of the new Porsche Cayman R has the distinctive Porsche Cayman Aerokit sports styling with fixed rear spoiler in contrasting colour. Black-framed halogen headlights, contrasting side mirrors and decorative "PORSCHE" side-stripes ensures this model stands out. For customers seeking to stand out further from the crowd a new option of Peridot metallic paint is available.
