And it’s back to the first rule of going faster – shed weight, add horses. The folks at Stuttgart set their sights on the Cayman this year, making it worthy of the ‘R’ suffix by cutting the flab by 55 kgs over the Cayman S, and making the flat-six work hard by putting out ten more horses. This mid-engined coupe now has the option of a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox which further cuts down the 0-100 kph time to 4.9 seconds. That, dear readers, is quick. 282 kph is what it maxes out at. All well and good, but who the colour is bit off for a Porsche and the bright green panel on the dash is downright ugly. Anyways, since such ‘R’ models are coming to you at a rate of ten per second day-in and day-out, we think you’d be bored of them by now. If you want proper hardcore, go buy a 911 GT2 RS. End of story.
0-100 KPH – 4.9 sec
