The tuning experts of RUF created a package for the Porsche Cayman model that brings it to an entirely different level. Dubbed as the CTR 3, this package consists of a recently developed body that is built entirely of Kevlar-carbon composite. RUF didn’t base this package on any mid-engine concept.
The customer can ask for the interior to be designed according to his or her taste, ranging from having a functional lightweight finish to a sporty luxury finish combined with Alcantara leather.
In addition, the interior features the aluminum gearshift lever for the sequential shift transmission as the central unit. Notably, the speedometer of the CTR 3 is graded up to 260 mph (420 km/h).
Another big plus is that the newest version of the RUF Integrated Roll Cage is protecting the passengers. The Roll Cage is integrated in the A pillar and tube frame. These doors have also been fitted with integrated side impact protection beams. Major modifications were made to the car to go with the new mid-engine design.
The CTR is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8 liter flat-six engine that delivers 750hp at 7,100 rpm. It has a maximum torque of 708 lb-ft (960 Nm) at 4,000 rpm. In only 3.2 seconds, the CTR 3 can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62mph).
It has a top speed of 236 mph (380km/h). It has received a set of 19-inch wheels in the front and 20-inch wheels in the rear. It could also come with a widebody fitting 335/30/20 tires in the back.
The latest generation models of the Porsche Cayman immediately draw attention for their modernised front ends featuring new headlights and redesigned rear ends with new rear lamps with progressive lights technology. Overall, the style is a stunningly dynamic update to the recognisable Porsche look. The new halogen main headlamps incorporate the direction indicator lights in a way that’s similar to the Carrera GT with its twin-tube look.
Light rod technology is used for the new LED signal indicators. Beside these are the standard circular fog lights.
The headlamps are now new bi-xenon lights. Optionally, distinct daytime LED lights and dynamic curve lights can be installed. When the daytime LEDs are installed, the white light diodes are in a noticeably unique cross pattern, providing a one-of-a-kind light profile for this mid-engine Porsche sports coupé.
The daytime driving lights replace the fog lamps at the car’s front end. Despite this, broad light coverage and side illumination are not compromised because of the optimally positioned bi-xenon headlamps.
The Porsche Cayman sports coupé’s rear end has a new and updated design incorporating modernised tail lights featuring LED red light sources. These are shaped to taper laterally at a pronounced angle and give an elegant look to the coupé’s tail end.
Standard Start-Off Assistant with Optional Sports Chrono Package
The new Porsche Cayman and the Cayman S model can optionally feature Porsche's Sports Chrono Package Plus, which is an improvement of the Sports Chrono Package. It now works better with the PCM Porsche Communication Management. If PDK is incorporated in either the Cayman or Cayman S, the Sports Chrono Package Plus will also include the new Launch Control feature along with a special gearshift system.
When activated with the Sports Plus button, it enables an exhilarating sportive performance. The Launch Control feature is a system that increases acceleration from a resting start. With this, the Cayman and Cayman S achieve a 0-100 km/h time 0.2 seconds quicker, as illustrated by the 4.9 second 0-100 km/h time of the Cayman S.
The Start-Off Assistant is another standard in both gearbox versions of both the new Cayman and Cayman S. As the name implies, it helps the driver during regular driving situations. It also stops any forward or backward movement when the car is on an inclined surface by automatically keeping the brakes on and only releasing gradually after the driver eases off the brake pedal. This allows a smoother and more secure uphill or downhill drive without needing the handbrake.
