Latest Porsche Cayman Gets an R Badge

It’s happy days for us Porsche fans, especially those who appreciate the mid-engine Caymans (even though it’s not a 911 as the elitists would say).  As expected, Porsche just unveiled the latest Cayman variant at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  The Porsche Cayman R is 121 lbs lighter than the Cayman S and has 10 more horsepower which means a 0-60 time of just 4.7 seconds.    
Cosmetically, the Cayman R has new 19-inch wheels, subtle stripe package, contrasting color mirrors and black-accented headlight bezels.  We’re not sure why Porsche decided to go with this hideous green color for the unveiling but we’re pretty sure the R will look outstanding in Carrera White or standard black.  The price has yet to be released but expect it to be at least a few thousand more than the S-variant.  Check out more pics and the promo video after the jump.
