Back in black

Porsche’s line of limited edition ‘Black’ models continues with the Cayman S Black Edition.

A run of 500 (yes, all black) boasting improved performance and a higher level of standard equipment, yet prices at the same $147,500 as the standard Cayman S.

Power from the 3.4 litre six-cylinder boxer engine steps up 7 kW to 243kW, helping to shave the 0-100km/h time by 0.1 sec (six-speed manual – 5.1sec / seven-speed PDK - 5.0sec).

The car is fitted with 19-inch Boxster Spyder wheels in black shod with 235/35ZR tyres on the front and 265/35ZR at the rear.

Additional standard equipment includes Bi-Xenon headlights with dynamic cornering lights, automatic anti-dazzle interior and exterior mirrors with integrated rain sensor, Porsche crest on the seat headrests and a Sport Design steering wheel. Local deliveries begin in September.
