Porsche Cayman R

The 2011 Porsche Cayman R combines sporting performance with responsiveness and refined style without any compromise. It is planned to make its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show and announces a more precise driving experince due to its specially adapted sports chassis. The eye-catching car model gets its power from a tuned-up 3.4-litre six-cylinder engine, which delivers 330 HP, trnsmitting power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox that gives the car a 0-100 km/h sprint of 5.0 seconds. Even more interesting, optional seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) reduces the acceleration time to 4.9 seconds. The mid-engine coupe reaches coupe reaches a top speed of 282 km/h featuring a manual gearbox and a maximum speed of 280 km/h when it is mated to a PDK. The NEDC fuel consumption is of 9.7l/100 km featuring a six-speed gearbox and of 9.3 l/100 km with PDK. The Porsche engineers succeeded in reducing the power-to-weight ratio of the coupe to 3.9 kilograms for the standard manual gearbox and to 4.0 kilograms for the PDK version, while the use of lightweight components led to the most important savings. The bodywork was lowered by 20 mm and an individual appearance was ensured by applying the high-quality silver-painted wheels together with lots of highlights on both the interior and exterior.
The new Porsche Cayman R will be priced at EUR 69,830 in Germnay, including the VAT and is scheduled to go on sale from February 2011.
