Porsche Cayman R: Most extreme yet

Porsche Cayman R

The Porsche Cayman R is the most extreme yet. Read on why!

The extreme Porsche Cayman R will deliver a bigger dynamic advantage over the Cayman S than the Boxster Spyder does over the Boxster S, according to Porsche’s chief of mid-engined cars, Hans-Jürgen Wöhler.

“The difference between the two Caymans is coming out of the stiffer bodyshell of the fixed roof; it means the chassis can fulfil 100 per cent of its potential, whereas in the Boxster Spyder it’s about 90 per cent,” said Wöhler.

“We have a special set-up of spring rates [five to 10 per cent stiffer], shock absorbers and torsion bar that is unique to this car. Plus, it’s 20mm lower.”
