Porsche Promises Sporty Style with New Cayman
Following on the heels of the recently announced 911 and Boxster S Black Editions, Porsche introduces a new, sporty and limited edition Cayman S arriving late this summer.
The 2012 Cayman S Black Edition features a 10-horsepower boost and standard equipment at an affordable price. It was announced today, May 6.
This new mid-engine sports car is only available in solid black and features a monochrome treatment with a black body and black-painted 19-inch Boxster Spyder design wheels.
Normally contrasting trim pieces from the Cayman S are also painted for a uniform look: the side air intake grilles are painted black, as are the twin exhaust tailpipes and the model designation on the rear deck lid.
The monochromatic theme continues to the interior where black is the only available color, with aluminum and stainless steel used as accents. The brushed stainless steel door-entry guards feature Black Edition lettering, and the standard SportDesign steering wheel features twin aluminum-look spokes with a rim of smooth-finish black leather.
Like the other Black Editions, the Cayman S Black Edition combines Porsche’s option packages. The black-painted exterior and interior touches are part of the Design package available on other Cayman models.
The Convenience package, also standard, includes Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering function, auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, rain sensor and automatic climate control.
The Infotainment package adds a touch-screen Porsche Communication Management system with navigation, BOSE surround-sound system and XM Satellite Radio with XM NavTraffic.
The Black Edition’s chassis builds on the foundation of the Cayman S, which already features better balance and handling. The lightest 19-inch wheels in the Porsche lineup are fitted 235/35 ZR 19 tires up front and 265/35 ZR 19 in the rear, providing a visually dynamic upgrade from the standard 18-inch wheels on the regular Cayman S.
The 2012 Cayman S Black Edition comes with a price tag of $67,500.
