Porsche has revealed the Cayman S Sport, a special version which delivers more than 300 hp and adopts styling elements borrowed from the 911 GT3 RS. It will go on sale in Autumn 2008.


Porsche Cayman S SportThe Porsche Cayman S was originally launched in November 2005.

The latest Sport version is powered by a tuned 3.4-litre flat-six engine which develops over 300 bhp and combines the mid-engined dynamics of the Cayman S with the visual impact of the iconic 911 GT3 RS.

In addition to a more powerful engine, the Cayman S Sport offers a high level of sports driving features and a bespoke range of colour combinations. It goes on sale this autumn.

Design

The appearance of the Cayman S Sport is striking, coming as standard in the 911 GT3 RS colours of Orange or Green and proudly bearing its model designation along its sides in black graphics.

Porsche Cayman S SportFurther colours available on this special model are Black, Guards Red, Speed Yellow and Carrara White, as well as Arctic Silver Metallic available at extra cost.

With its black-painted alloy wheels, exterior mirrors and air intake grilles, the Cayman S Sport proudly displays its sporting credentials, which are underlined by the black interior design package and a unique, circular instrument display without the usual binnacle above.

The alcantara finish on the gear shift, the handbrake lever, and the rim of the steering wheel also creates a purposeful ambience.

Features

Porsche Cayman S SportOver and above the 303 bhp (223 kW) power unit, the sporting character of the Cayman S is further emphasised by offering Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard, which lowers the car by ten millimetres.

Five millimetre spacers push outwards the 19-inch SportDesign wheels in the wheel arches, providing further visual appeal and boosting cornering performance.

Bi-Xenon headlights, the Sports Chrono Package and sports seats in leather as standard enhance the appeal of the car, and a sports exhaust system combined with twin tailpipes completes the picture.

These versions of the Cayman S are limited to an exclusive series, each one proudly bearing their edition number on a plaque on the glove box.

Customers will also be able to explore the potential of their new car on a Porsche Driving Experience course.
