Cayman S 3.4 – 325 ch [depuis 2013]

Thrashing the Cayman S With Porsche Driving Experience

What better way to get a feel for the 981 Cayman S than by thrashing it at Leipzig under the tutelage of a Porsche instructor? Travel and fashion blogger Steve Booker is one fortunate soul who, in attending the Porsche Track Experience, gets to learn the Cayman S with the assistance of a sodden skidpad, some of the world’s best corners, and a talented coach.

Sliding on a skidpad will rapidly sharpen one’s countersteering skills.

It’s not often that novices get to push their cars to the limit on a typical track day, but the Porsche Track Experience is designed to have customers familiar with the complete character of their Porsche; to make them comfortable at the edge of adhesion. As Booker puts it, rather poetically, « By the end of it—it sounds silly—but you’re, like, dancing with it. »

Learning lines, breakaway characteristics, braking distances, and weight transfer are all in a day’s work there. For those considering a performance-oriented Porsche, want to improve their own skills, or are just interested seeing in the potential of one of these cars demonstrated by a trained professional, the Porsche Track Experience is an exhilarating way to spend a weekend.

Porsche Cayman S Long-Term Update: 30K in and It Still Cuts Like a Knife

2014 Porsche Cayman S LT Update
WHAT WE LIKE: What we like best is not its rousing engine note or its eagerness to turn or its excellent steering system or its near-perfect shifter. No, what we like best about our long-term Cayman S—now 75 percent of the way through its stay with us—is that a drive in it is an automotive palate cleanser. The Cayman S’s clarity of purpose and deliciously mechanical nature is the perfect salve for our enthusiast hearts after commuting in overwrought crossovers or whittling away hours of our lives in CVT-equipped econoboxes or driving any number of cars that, despite excellent performance, fail to connect with their drivers. Nothing that we’ve encountered in our 30,000 miles with the car has diminished the Cayman S’s place as our North Star of sports-car goodness. We have no proof of this, but we’re convinced that the word “love” has never appeared so many times in any of the logbooks of previous long-term cars. The most recent note in the book reads, “I wish this car’s odometer would stop working so that we might keep it forever.” READ MORE ››

Porsche Exclusive reveals ultra-rare 911 Targa 4S and customised Cayman S

911 Targa 4S Exclusive Mayfair Edition and Exclusive Cayman S spec lists revealed

Porsche’s personalisation arm, Porsche Exclusive, has confirmed the production of 10 bespoke examples of the 911 Targa 4S. Only available to order from the carmaker’s London Mayfair showroom, the Targa 4S Exclusive gains several performance and styling features as standard.

Heading the list is the Powerkit, which ups power from 394bhp to 424bhp and adds a more vocal sports exhaust. Power is sent to all four wheels via Porsche’s fast-changing PDK gearbox as standard, while the addition of the Sport Chrono package adds dynamic engine mounts and a dash-mounted stopwatch.

The chassis also receives Porsche’s dynamic chassis control (PDCC) – a system that counters body roll and minimises body movement during lateral direction changes – and ceramic composite brakes as standard, while adaptive sports seats help to keep passengers in place during fast cornering.

To set the Mayfair Targa 4S apart from its more common siblings, Porsche Exclusive lettering is added to the car’s seat centres, while 20-inch Sport Classic wheels come painted in black and LED headlights are included. On top of this, buyers can extensively customise features like interior stitching, leather trim, embossing and seat belt buckle colours.

Completing the specs list is an ungraded Burmester sound system, a personalised leather key pouch and photobook for each car.

While the 911 Targa 4S isn’t the sharpest of 911s in standard form, its structure is more rigid than the entirely roofless convertible, making for sharper handling and better refinement.

With so few examples of the bespoke Targa 4S for sale, its price is suitably large – it starts at £148,849.10, close to £50,000 more than the standard Targa 4S.

Exclusive Cayman S

Porsche Exclusive has also revealed three bespoke versions of the Cayman S to demonstrate its customisation potential. With a range of colours and trim available for parts both inside and out, it’s possible for buyers to use Porsche Exclusive’s service to create an entirely bespoke Cayman S.

To set the car apart from the regular model, the Exclusive’s exterior gains black paint on the headlight washers, lower half of the mirrors, spokes of the 20-inch SportTechno wheels and side air intakes. Cayman S lettering on the doors is also coloured in black, while the taillights gain light tinting to match.

Inside, the dials and Sport Chrono stopwatch are painted in the car’s exterior colour, as is the centre console trim that surrounds the gear lever, door and dash trim. The vent slats and rear-view mirror are now wrapped in leather, and between the passengers, the storage lid now wears Porsche embossing.

Just three exterior colours are presented – white, Agate Grey Metallic and Racing Yellow – the last of which also comes with yellow seatbelts. But while it certainly looks racy, this car’s yellow dash trim might be a little too garish for some buyers’ tastes.

Since it’s based on the Cayman S, Exclusive cars still utilise power from the same 321bhp and 273lb ft of torque 3.4-litre flat-six ensuring performance remains unchanged – the Cayman S can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in an evo tested 4.5sec (three tenths faster than listed) and onto a claimed top speed of 175mph.

We’re fans of the car at evo, having enjoyed its planted yet playful chassis and surprisingly feelsome electric power steering on our tests. The gearing is admittedly a tad too long, but only because it reduces the amount of time you can spend winding out the Cayman’s silky toned naturally aspirated flat-six. 

We’re yet to confirm the exact pricing of these Exclusive Cayman Ss, but given the extent of customisation on offer, we can safely assume even the most basic Exclusive will comfortably surpass the regular car’s £48,783 list price.
