The New Porsche Cayman Is Revealed

As usual, Porsche has released pictures of the Black Edition version of the Cayman just months before the facelifted version is released next year. 

This, then, is a last throw of the dice for the naturally-aspirated Cayman; the new car will be powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-litre flat-four engine which shares its modular architecture with 3.0 flat-six in the latest 911.

But back to the Porsche Cayman Black Edition. It is powered by the 275bhp, 2.7-litre flat-six engine; the entry-level choice but still a fine motor. Predictably, it wears a coat of deep and glossy black paint and sits on 20-inch Carrera Classic wheels.zoom

Inside, there’s the usual seven-inch touchscreen, MP3 dock, sports mode and Porsche Stability Management. On top of that, the Black Edition gets bi-xenon headlights, satnav with online services, Bluetooth, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, anti-dazzle mirrors, automatic wipers, two-zone climate control, heated seats, upgraded stereo and Sports Design steering wheel.

Add that little lot to the price of a normal Cayman 2.7 and it would add up to rather more than the £5,000 price hike the Black Edition commands. On sale now, it will set you back £45,989.

You even get a complimentary driving day at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone.
