2012 Porsche Cayman S Black Edition news, pictures, and information
Porsche Cayman S Black Edition Adds Horsepower, Features and ValueThe 330-horsepower Cayman S Black Edition limited to 500 units worldwide
ATLANTA - May 6, 2011 - Following on the heels of the recently announced 911 and Boxster S Black Editions, Porsche introduces a new, sporty and limited edition Cayman S arriving late this summer. The 2012 Cayman S Black Edition features a 10-horsepower boost and a long list of standard equipment at an attractive price.
This new mid-engine sports car is only available in solid black and features a monochrome treatment wîth a black body and black-painted 19-inch Boxster Spyder design wheels. Normally contrasting trim pieces from the Cayman S are also painted for a uniform look: the side air intake grilles are painted black, as are the twin exhaust tailpipes and the model designation on the rear deck lid.
The monochromatic theme continues to the interior where black is the only available color, wîth aluminum and stainless steel used as accents. The brushed stainless steel door-entry guards feature Black Edition lettering, and the standard SportDesign §teering wheel features twin aluminum-look spokes wîth a rim of smooth-finish black leather. Also painted black are the trim strips on the dashboard and around the six-speed manual shift lever or the gear selector for the optional Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) seven-speed double clutch transmission, while the instrument dials are black instead of the usual white. Two final touches are the Porsche crest embossed on the headrests and a limited-edition badge on the glove compartment.
Like the other Black Editions, the Cayman S Black Edition combines Porsche's popular option packages to deliver additional value to customers. The black-painted exterior and interior touches are part of the Design package available on other Cayman models. The Convenience package, also standard, includes Bi-Xenon headlights wîth dynamic cornering function, auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, rain sensor and automatic climate control.
The Infotainment package adds a touch-screen Porsche Communication Management system wîth navigation, BOSE® surround-sound system and XM® Satellite Radio wîth XM NavTraffic®.
The Black Edition's chassis builds on the foundation of the Cayman S, which already features exceptional balance and handling. The lightest 19-inch wheels in the Porsche lineup are fitted 235/35 ZR 19 tires up front and 265/35 ZR 19 in the rear, providing a visually dynamic upgrade from the standard 18-inch wheels on the regular Cayman S.
A 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine wîth direct fuel injection, mounted in front of the rear axle, produces 330 horsepower – 10 more than in the Cayman S – while also delivering excellent fuel economy, particularly when coupled wîth the optional PDK transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) With PDK, the Cayman S Black Edition will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 4.6 seconds wîth the optional Sport Chrono Package and reaches a top track speed of 172 mph while achieving EPA estimated fuel economy of 20 city and 29 highway (19/26 when equipped wîth six-speed manual and top track speed of 173 mph), the same as the Cayman S. In addition to reducing the 0--60 acceleration times by two-tenths, the optional Sport Chrono Package wîth PDK provides a launch control function and more aggressive Sport and Sport Plus shift strategies.
The 2012 Cayman S Black Edition MSRP is $67,500 which gives buyers added value on several levels considering the extra functional and visual upgrades and the enhanced power output.
