(from Porsche Press
Release) Cayman S Black Edition with more power and
comprehensive equipment package
Stuttgart. The next step up from the Cayman S is known as the Cayman
S Black Edition: Starting in July 2011, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG,
Stuttgart, is bringing the mid-engine coupé to market in a special
edition limited to 500 units boasting even better performance and
especially lavish equipment specification. The Cayman S Black
Edition is powered by a 3.4 litre six-cylinder boxer engine with
power output increased by 10 hp (7 kW) to 330 hp (243 kW) at 7,400
rpm (an additional 200 rpm). The maximum torque remains unchanged at
370 Newton metres at 4,750 rpm.
The extra power feeds directly through into the performance of the
all black two-seater. The acceleration times from nought to 100 km/h
(62 mph) are improved by a tenth of a second to 5.1 seconds with the
six-gear manual transmission and to 5.0 seconds with the optional
Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) respectively. A mere 4.8
seconds are required if the Launch Control is activated on the Sport
Chrono package, available as an option. The Cayman S Black Edition’s
top speed is two kilometres per hour (1.24 mph) faster than that of
the Cayman S – 279 km/h (173 mph) with the manual transmission and
277 km/h (172 mph) with the PDK respectively.
The Cayman S Black Edition is not just more sportily agile in terms
of its longitudinal dynamics but laterally as well. Among other
factors, this is attributable to the Boxster Spyder wheels in black,
which with a diameter of 19 inches are not just one inch bigger than
the standard Cayman S wheels but are also half an inch wider than
the optional 19 inch wheels on the Cayman S. The tyre sizes fitted
are 235/35 ZR 19s on the front axle and 265/35 ZR 19s on the rear
With its comprehensive and particularly high-quality equipment, the
Cayman S Black Edition also caters for exceedingly exacting demands.
For example, Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights and
LED daytime running lights are just as much part of the basic
specification as are automatic anti-dazzle interior and exterior
mirrors with integrated rain sensor. Driver and front seat passenger
sit on black partial leather seats with Porsche crest on the
headrests; climate control ensures a comfortable temperature. The
driver pilots the Cayman Black Edition by means of a Sport Design
steering wheel, the cruise control makes driving at constant speed a
more comfortable and economical experience.
The colour scheme of the limited edition sports coupé is consistent
to the smallest detail: the dashboard trim is black as are the gear
lever/selector trim and the instrument dials in the instrument
cluster. The door entry guards emblazoned with the lettering “Black
Edition” are made of stainless steel; the glove compartment lid
bears the badge proclaiming the limited edition status. Equipped
with Sound Package Plus, the Cayman S Black Edition’s infotainment
systems are controlled via Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
This also includes, for example, the navigation module and universal
audio interface (AUX, USB, iPod). Mobile phone integration is
already enabled. In all, the Cayman S Black Edition features the
Porsche Comfort, Infotainment and Design packages, offering a price
reduction into the bargain.
With country-specific equipment, the Cayman S Black Edition costs
67,807 euro in Germany including VAT.
