Porsche has unveiled the Cayman R, a performance-oriented version of the two-seater coupé that will go on sale on February 2011. Among the features are a sporty body kit, reduced weight and tuned sports suspension.

Making its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Porsche Cayman R is the third version in the Cayman range, joining the Cayman and Cayman S.

This performance-oriented variant is powered by the 3.4-litre, flat six-cylinder boxer engine found in the Cayman S. The unit is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission and has been tuned to deliver an additional 10 hp.

The exterior is characterized by the Aerokit sports styling – with fixed rear spoiler in contrasting color, black-framed halogen headlights, contrasting side mirrors and decorative side-stripes. A new option of Peridot metallic paint is available.

The main performances are a 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.0 seconds (4.7 with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and the Sport Chrono package) and a top speed of 282 km/h.

The unladen weight is 1295 kg – 55 kg less than the equivalent Cayman S. This result was made possible by the use of lightweight components and the removal of the equipment not associated with driving performance.

The body features aluminum door skins from the 911 Turbo and GT3. The interior has carbon fibre sports bucket seats and door panels from the 911 GT3 RS.

Additional technical highlights include a limited slip differential, sports suspension system that lowers the car by 20 mm and lightweight 19” alloy wheels that reduce weight by 5kg.

The Porsche Cayman R goes on sale in February 2011, priced from about $82k USD, which includes a Driving Experience Programme at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone.
