For additional personal comfort to both the driver and the passenger, the Cayman Black Edition offers Bluetooth phone connectivity, two-zone climate control system, and heated seats. The Black Edition also comes with the Sound Package Plus, which includes a high-quality audio system, as standard.

Aside from the features that are exclusive to this Black Edition, it also has the standard equipment that comes with each Cayman model. These include the air conditioning, a universal audio interface that offers MP3 connectivity, and CDR audio system that comes with a 7-inch colour touchscreen.

For additional features, the model comes with the Porsche Stability Management (PSM), auto stop/start, Sports mode, and tyre pressure monitoring. It also comes with a three-year warranty and a three-year roadside assistance package.

For those who are interested to know more about the potential of this sports coupé, customers can participate in a complimentary course at its Silverstone Porsche Experience Centre.
