In November 2007, Porsche is presenting the Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition 1”, a limited-edition special series. Porsche has incorporated various design disciplines into this very special mid-engine coupe: the black exterior shows the purist nature of the 295 bhp sportscar and at the same time it’s a nod to Porsche Design and the famous 1S design by Ferdinand Porsche precisely 35 years ago. As you can see on the last picture “only” 777 Design Edition 1 will be made and each will be identifiable from a badge on the lid of the glove box.
This look gives the Cayman S additional luxury and class: the black leather and Alcantara upholstery harmonizes with refined details such as the instrument dials, the layout of which reflects that of all Porsche Design chronographs. Even the center console, dashboard, and door trims are in black, while the three-spoke sports steering wheel, the gear lever, the handbrake grip and the roof lining are clothed in non-slip black leather.
The technical site then is with a ten-millimeter-lower body, standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) actively controls the hardness of the shock absorbers and it features a special Sport mode that can be activated at the touch of a button for “the real” dynamic driving feel. Five-millimeter spacers together with 19-inch turbo wheels give the Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition 1” the looks of the best looking Cayman sofar.
The market launch of this black Cayman with exclusive Porsche Design equipment, including briefcase, will begin in Germany in November 2007 (or maybe on the IAA Frankfurt Auto Show) and in the United States in January 2008. The base price is € 58,600 euros .
