Porsche Cayman S Black Edition - Web Exclusive

The new Cayman S Black Edition gets 330hp, wider 19” wheels, a unique all-black finish and is faster than the regular Cayman S. Only 500 will be made worldwide.

May 6, 2011

The new Porsche Cayman S Black Edition will combine performance and style, with a 3.4-liter flat-six engine tuned to deliver 330hp, distinctive 19” wheels finished in black, plus a luxurious interior. Production is limited to 500 examples worldwide, with sales beginning in September.

The extra power is produced at 7400rpm (an additional 200rpm over the standard car), while the maximum torque remains unchanged at 270 lb-ft at 4750rpm. The extra power feeds directly into the performance of the all-black mid-engined sports car, with acceleration from 0-62mph improved by 0.1sec to 5.1sec with the six-speed manual transmission, and to 5.0sec with the optional PDK transmission.

With the Launch Control activated on the PDK Sport Chrono package option, acceleration improves further to 4.8sec. Top speed of the Cayman S Black Edition is just over 1mph faster than that of the Cayman S at 173mph with the manual transmission and 172mph with PDK. In line with the Porsche Intelligent Performance principles, fuel consumption of the Cayman S Black Edition remains identical to that of the standard car, despite the increase in horsepower.

Helping the dynamic performance of the Cayman S Black Edition further are the lightweight Boxster Spyder wheels finished in black which, with a diameter of 19”, are one-inch bigger than the standard Cayman S wheels and 0.5” wider than the optional 19 inch wheels offered on the Cayman S. The tire sizes fitted are 235/35 ZR19 on the front and 265/35 ZR19 on the rear axle.

The Cayman S Black Edition features standard Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights and LED daytime running lights, together with automatic anti-dazzle mirrors with integrated rain sensor.

The front seats are trimmed in black partial leather with a Porsche crest on the headrests, as well as a Sport Design steering wheel. A further highlight of the Black Edition interior is the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) incorporating satellite navigation. This is combined with the universal audio interface that allows MP3 player connectivity and also Bluetooth mobile phone compatibility. The color scheme of the Cayman S Black Edition is consistent throughout: the dashboard trim is black as are the gear lever/selector trim and the dials in the instrument cluster. The door entry guards feature “Black Edition” lettering and are made of stainless steel; the glovebox lid bears a badge highlighting the limited edition status.
