Porsche Exclusive unveils the Cayman S in Agate Grey Metallic

Article by Christian A., on September 5, 2014

Once again, Porsche Exclusive did its thing on the Cayman S. If in August, the coupe received a Racing Yellow exterior paint, now the Cayman S arrived in a special Agate Grey Metallic. Furthermore, the vehicle arrives with the model designation on doors in black, as well as black wheels and Racing Yellow brake calipers.

In addition, the vehicle received new smoked taillights, a new sport suspension which brings the body 20 mm closer to the ground, a sport exhaust system but also a new exterior package painted in black.

Inside, there is a new heated multifunction steering wheel in carbon fiber, Racing Yellow instrument cluster dials, the Sport Chrono stopwatch instrument dial in Racing Yellow as well, stylish air vents wrapped in leather, as well as a painted key fob.

As you can see from the photos, the Cayman S received an interior package in carbon, a centre console trim in carbon and the PCM package in leather.

Under the hood, there is the same flat six 3.4-liter boxer engine producing 325 hp (293 kW). Bolted to a PDK transmission, the Cayman S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds and when equipped with the Sport Chrono package the time drops to 4.7 seconds. Top speed is limited at 174 mph or 280 km/h.

The new Cayman body is a completely new development drawn from the Boxster’s body in white. The outcomes result in a revolutionary lightweight body style with an aluminium-steel body construction that lowered body weight by about 47 kg. Simultaneously, the vehicle's inert torsional firmness has a 40 per cent boost.

Basically, the Cayman has a more precise drive than before. Additional features, more ample surfaces in glass, and bigger wheels counterbalance some of the savings in weight, but every sport coupé’s DIN weights are lower than those of prior models, and a standard Cayman S has a weight that is 30 km lower.

This reduction in weight gives the driver numerous benefits: the lower mass means there is less power needed to propel the automobile in normal driving. This lessens fuel use. When the driver desires the engine’s full power, the lighter sports car produces an improved drive performance.

With its all-new lighter body style, Porsche uses steel only where necessary. Instead, whenever lighter weight metals were possible, they are the favoured option. For instance, they used die-cast aluminium, aluminium sheets, magnesium, and high-strength steel, and every material is customised for specific body purposes, guaranteeing extremely high rigidity while reducing material use as much as possible. About 44 per cent of the all-new Cayman’s body-in-white comprises aluminium: front and rear body, floor assembly, doors, and front and rear lids.
