Porsche Cayman R, More Dynamics. More Agility.
How exactly do you refine an existing sportscar concept? Do you add one thing after another, piling more on top, and packing more in? Many would think so, but we don’t. The result is the new Cayman R. Minimise to maximise was the idea. The guiding principle was the power-to-weight ratio. For us, improving performance is not simply about boosting engine output, but radically dispensing with features that would otherwise mean only one thing: increased weight. This is the principle of Porsche Intelligent Performance. What does this mean for the driver? More dynamics, more agility, and even more Porsche.
A rebellious character knows exactly what it wants. Our engineers adopted the same attitude when developing the Cayman R. One thing was clear: it should be uncompromising, sharper and more radical than ever before. To achieve this, anything was acceptable as long as it would ultimately benefit the driver, such as a purposeful mid-engine layout combined with a rigorous reduction in weight and increased engine output. In other words, Porsche Intelligent Performance.
The result? No radio. No air conditioning system. No cupholders. Instead, 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels, sports bucket seats, and 243 kW (330 hp). In short, 55 kg less and 7,4 kW (10 hp) more than the Cayman S. The body has been lowered by 20 mm, and a retuned sports suspension provides uncompromising proximity to the road. The Cayman R reflects the radical rejection of the pursuit of comfort. It’s a character that is not influenced by the opinion of others; and that is exactly what makes it so attractive.

The dynamically designed fixed spoiler draws attention to the powerful rear end. In conjunction with the distinctive spoiler lips in the front apron, it reduces lift and delivers nothing but sporty performance. The effect is tangible: a more direct relationship with the road. The resulting driving experience is more electrifying, more palpable, more intense. The rear end also features a twin tailpipe finished in black to create its own discernible contrast. This is the source of the distinctive Porsche sound, which is clearly audible to all around it. After all, if you have something to say, you should be heard.
On what does a successful overall impression depend? The details. The exterior mirrors of the Cayman R are finished in a contrasting colour to give full emphasis to the car’s muscular contouring. Other elements in a contrasting colour include the air intakes on the rear side section, the rear spoiler wing and the Porsche logo adorning the side of the vehicle. The black circular borders around the halogen headlights are reminiscent of the successful Porsche race cars from the past. Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights and daytime running lights are available as an option. An indication of the car’s purposeful lightweight construction is given by the aluminium doors, which reduce weight by 15 kg. The black painted logo on the rear lid is the final signature of the car’s uncompromising nature.
In summary, the Cayman R sets clear accents and leaves no questions unanswered. Exterior styling is no exception, and we find that this suits the Cayman R very well indeed.
