Porsche lifts the covers on the New Cayman R

We’ve known since last summer that Porsche would launch a more sporting variant of the ever-popular Cayman before the year-end, and whilst speculation was rife about its nomenclature it was never likely to be called a CS.

Instead Porsche have chosen to call it the Cayman R and if you’re familiar with Porsche naming convention then you’ll already realise that such a distinction is important. The Porsche alphabet reserves the letter R for very special sports cars in its range: R for responsive and refined – but most especially for racy. Porsche claims that the new Cayman R combines all these attributes without compromise.
