Porsche Cayman S Black Edition
16th May, 2011
The theme of “Black” special edition cars continues at
Porsche with the introduction of the Cayman S Black Edition.
Just 500 units of the mid-engined coupe are to be built, each boasting better performance and equipment
yet priced exactly the same as today’s Cayman S at $147,500*.
Power from the 3.4 litre six-cylinder boxer engine is increased by 7 kW to 243 kW at 7,400 rpm (an
additional 200 rpm) while maximum torque remains unchanged at 370 Nm at 4,750 rpm.

Acceleration times are shaved by 0.1 secs as a result – the 0-100 km/h sprint now taking 5.1 secs with
the six-speed manual gearbox, 5.0 secs with optional seven-speed PDK or 4.8 secs with PDK and the
activation of Launch Control with the further optional Sport Chrono package. Top speed is 279 km/h.
The Porsche Cayman S Black Edition gains 19-inch Boxster Spyder wheels in black, which are not only
one-inch taller than the standard Cayman S wheels but are also half an inch wider than the optional 19 inch
wheels available on the coupe. Tyres are 235/35 ZR 19s on the front and 265/35 ZR 19s on the rear.
Additional standard equipment on the Cayman S includes Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights,
automatic anti-dazzle interior and exterior mirrors with integrated rain sensor, Porsche crest on the head
restraints and a Sport Design steering wheel.
As the name suggests, this new addition to the Cayman range is available only in black and with numerous
interior details in black, including: dashboard trim, gear lever/selector trim and instrument dials. The
words “Black Edition” feature on the door entry sills while the glove box lid lists the limited edition
The Cayman S Black Edition will sell alongside the regular Cayman S and Cayman models, with deliveries
beginning in September.
