Porsche Cayman R ~ 2011-

The Cayman R introduced the lightweight concept to the already popular Cayman range. Porsche Cayman R Weight was cut by 55kg to 1295kg compared to the standard Cayman S, thanks to the use of lightweight aluminium door skins, carbonfibre bucket seats and RS-style door panels. In addition, the air-conditioning and stereo were deleted, and the fuel tank slightly reduced in size to 54-litres. The wheels were also lightweight 19-inch litres as used on the Boxster Spyder.

Porsche Cayman R In classic Porsche style, power was tweaked just slightly over that of the Cayman S 3.4-litre engine, to give an extra 10bhp. Combined with the weight reduction, this gave a power-to-weight ratio of 255bhp per tonne (or 250bhp with the PDK).

This equated to a 0-62mph time of 5.0 seconds (4.7 with PDK and Sport Chrono) and a top speed of 175mph (174mph with PDK).

Porsche Cayman R The Cayman R featured a fixed rear spoiler, black headlamp surrounds and mirror housings, plus retro-style Porsche side decals.
