Porsche Cayman Black Edition – any colour you like…

Latest special edition Cayman piles on kit, and paints it all black

Thankfully, a healthy equipment roster sheds light in the darkness, not least the standard bi-xenon headlights and the glint of aluminium should optional side window trims be specified.

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.

The price of darkness is £45,989. That’s £6295 beyond a standard Cayman 2.7, but expected given the increase in equipment. Other colours are of course available…
