(from Porsche Press
Release) Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart,
Germany, is to expand its mid-engine coupé model range with the
launch, in November 2007, of the Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition
1”, a limited-edition special series. Porsche has incorporated
various design disciplines into this very special mid-engine coupé:
the black exterior emphasizes the purist nature of the 295-bhp
sports car and, at the same time, is a nod to Porsche Design and the
famous Chronograph 1s designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche
precisely 35 years previously.
This look, cultivated by Porsche Design, imparts additional luxury
and class on the Cayman S: the black leather and Alcantara
upholstery harmonizes with refined details such as the instrument
dials, the layout of which reflects that of all Porsche Design
chronographs. Even the center console, dashboard, and door trims
glisten in black, while the three-spoke sports steering wheel, the
gear lever, the handbrake grip, and the roof lining are clothed in
non-slip black Alcantara. The Porsche logo (crest) is embossed on
The vehicle’s technical features are equally sophisticated: beneath
the ten-millimeter-lower body, standard Porsche Active Suspension
Management (PASM) actively controls the hardness of the shock
absorbers and it features a special Sport mode that can be activated
at the touch of a button for a really dynamic driving feel.
Five-millimeter spacers together with 19-inch turbo wheels give the
Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition 1” a presence that is reinforced
yet further by the 235/35 ZR 19 tires at the front axle and the
265/35 ZR 19 tires at the rear.
The Porsche Design Studio, created by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche 35
years ago, has rapidly become a top international name for
industrial design, luxury items, and consumer goods. Top-class
functionality and esthetics glisten in the new “Porsche Design
Edition 1” collection – in black or black matt, of course.
The Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition 1” standard equipment thus
includes an elegant briefcase containing the Flat Six Chronograph, a
pocket knife, a pair of sunglasses, a pen, and a key ring – all in
black, even the knife blade, in keeping with the vehicle’s styling.
The number of Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition 1” units is to be as
exclusive as this series-production luxury package: only 777 are
being built, and each will be identifiable from a badge on the lid
of the glove box.
The market launch of this black Cayman with exclusive Porsche Design
equipment, including briefcase, will begin in Germany in November
2007 and in the United States in January 2008. The base price is
58,600 Euros and, factoring in 19 percent value-added tax, the price
in Germany will be 69,942 Euros.
