The Black Edition gets the Cayman’s entry-level 2.7-litre, 275PS flat-six, capable of propelling the car to 62mph in 5.7sec and on to 165mph.

Outside, a set of 20-inch Carrera Classic alloy wheels manage to escape the light-absorbing hue with a silver finish.  Leading you further from the dark is a standard Porsche Communication Management system with satellite navigation, while rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, parking sensors and a Sport Design steering wheel further embellish the car’s specification.

Air conditioning, stop-start, and Porsche Stability Management remain standard, as with all Cayman models. Customers will also be invited to experience their cars in a complimentary course at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone.
