We regularly report on what seems like an endless stream of new variants on Porsche's iconic 911. But the latest model from Porsche isn't a 911 at all: it's the ultimate version of the smaller Cayman.
Called the Cayman R, it packs more power and less weight: 330 horsepower from the 3.4-liter flat-six engine and 120 lbs less heft. There's also a revised suspension and an interior decked out in Alcantara microsuede and leather, plus straps for door handles (like on the similarly treated Boxster Spyder) as well as some visual tweaks to let everyone know this isn't an average Cayman.
With a 0-62 time below 5 seconds and a 175 mph top speed, the Cayman R was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show and will hit dealerships within a year from now with a $66,000 price tag.
