The 2012 Porsche Cayman S Black Edition features a 3.4-liter 6-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection, mounted in front of the rear axle, delivers 330 hp – 10 more than the Cayman S – while also offering fuel economy, especially when matted with the optional PDK transmission.
With PDK, the Porsche Cayman S Black Edition accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds with 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 with 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 with PDK provides a launch control function and more aggressive Sport and Sport Plus shift strategies.
Limited to only 500 units worldwide, the Porsche Cayman S Black Edition is only available in solid black and features a monochrome treatment with a black body and black-painted 19-inch Boxster Spyder design wheels. The monochrome treatment continues to the interior where black is the only available color, with aluminum and stainless steel used as accents. The 2012 Porsche Cayman S Black Edition MSRP is $67,500.
