    No cayman RS

    I read in this week's Autocar magazine that Porsche have confirmed that they have no plans to produce a Cayman RS.

    Re: No cayman RS

    :(      maybe in the next generation...

    Re: No cayman RS

    After they improve the current 911 chassie, maybe.

    Mid engine Cayman is a far better driver's car than 997 Carrera. A Cayman RS, would beat 911. So there is no need for a family authority crash..

    Re: No cayman RS

    I see it a little differently. A true Cayman RS would require modifications and equipment that would make the Cayman RS a $100K car which is too close to the GT3 in price at a time when the market for Porsche sports cars has been declining, the 987 series to an even greater extent than the 997 series.  A "marketing" Cayman RS would be similar to last years Cayman S Sport which most readers on this site would merely satirize as badge engineering. There are still a few Cayman S Sport cars on dealer lots, at least in the US. It was a no win for Porsche with either route.

     I disagree.  By far the biggest cost of the GT3 is the GT1-style racing motor with true dry sump.  If a Cayman S used the 9A1 motor, there is no reason its cost would need to approach anything resembling the GT3's cost.

    Building a car with a stiff suspension, stock LSD, lower gearing, and fewer luxury features (saving weight) is not that expensive.  Giving the car a 3.6L or 3.8L motor instead of the 3.4L costs Porsche almost nothing.

    Grant, you are absolutely right but Porsche marketing would never sanction it

    I was led to believe that any Porsche w/ an RS designation that didn't have the GT1 block motor was only for poseurs and not true enthusiasts.  I must be reading too many Porsche internet forums!

    I was going to reply with the same thought.
     

    You don't need space since for Cayman RS.

    Just put a little bit more power; with better exhaust and intake system and add all this with an improved software.

    Take out some lux. options and add 997.1 GT3 buckets to save some weight. Put a proper LSD and with some suspansion tuning, it won't cost a fortune but this kind of car would be way faster 911 Carrera S and too close to GT3, IMO.

     I tend to agree with that, but I think the next GT3 RS (after the one just released) may also have a 9A1 block (and maybe the racecars too), so some rumors suggest...

    Re: No cayman RS

    http://www.gtspirit.com/2009/12/09/release-of-porsche-cayman-club-sport-in-2010/

    At the beginning of this year we reported about the Cayman Club Sport; a lightweight version of the existing Cayman model range. We received information that the CS version will hit the market next year, following the Boxster Spyder introduced a few weeks ago.

    The Porsche engineers will try to lose as much weight as possible. Although it isn’t official yet, we expect several changes inside the interior, lightweigh plates all over the car and a set of lighter wheels. Next to these weight saving changes, the Clubsports will gain a bit more power on top of the standard 320bhp.

    The performance will of course improve. A standard Cayman S does 171mph (274km/h) and 4.9 seconds on a sprint to 62mph (100km/h).

    The vehicle hasn’t been officially introduced yet, but a Dutch newspaper suggests a release within the upcoming months.

    A "knowledgeable" source I had contact with, while willing to offer a wink and a nod to some other rumored new Porsche models for '10/'11, said flat out about a Cayman RS/Clubsport "no way".

    Sorry.

    I would love to see one as much as anyone else, but the performance would exceed the 911 model range and cannibalize (ultra profitable) sales. Will be glad to come back and eat my pixels if I am wrong :-)

    Re: Porsche Cayman Club Sport in 2010...

    After much discussion, it does appear that Porsche is planning to launch the Cayman Club Sport in 2010...

    Porsche-Cayman-Club-Sport.jpg

    Clearly there was some hesitation on the positioning of the Cayman within the Porsche range, but the case for the Club Sport is now viewed as compelling:

    2010 Porsche Cayman Club Sport: Key Considerations

    • Following the merger of Porsche and VW, it has been confirmed by Michael Macht that Porsche would like to target annual production of 150,000 cars, which will require several new models (including Panamera 928 Coupe, Cayman CS, GT2 RS)
    • Porsche management acknowledge benefit of potential "halo" model for Cayman range
    • Very positive reaction to the launch of the Boxster Spyder lightweight with 320bhp and 1275kg
    • Audi launched the TT RS with 335bhp in 2009 (as a direct competitor)
    • Audi planning to launch the RS5 Coupe with 450bhp in 2010
    • Lotus Evora awarded the majority of the 2009 COTY awards
    • Several third-party tuners offering Cayman derivative models
       - Autofarm Cayman RS, RUF Cayman, Parr Cayman S Turbo, 9ff Cayman
    • Scope in the Porsche range to position the 2010 Cayman Club Sport (330-335bhp) between the Boxster Spyder (320bhp) and 911 Carrera (345bhp)
    • Cayman model previously under-exploited within the Porsche range:
       - 911 range has 16 models
       - Cayenne has 8 models
       - Panamera has 3 models
       - Boxster has 3 models (including Spyder)
       - Cayman only 2 models
    • Limited Slip Differential (LSD) proving popular option on Cayman S
    • Boxster Spyder and Cayman Club Sport also provide additional scale economies for GT3/RS parts
    • Potential official Porsche race series for Cayman Club Sport (below Carrera Cup)
    • Cayman Club Sport marketing limited to high priority publications
       - Evo magazine, Autocar, Auto Express, Car magazine in UK
       - Marketing expected to exclude Top Gear, given Clarkson's original review (and declining reputation)
    • Focus on historical inspiration from Porsche Motorsport...

    1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS Coupe

    1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS Coupe - Prototype.jpg

    Although it was officially named Carrera GTS, it opened a new chapter in Porsche's sporting history under the internal designation 904. The 904, designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (known as "Butzi"), anticipated, from a technical point of view, much that did not become the norm in racing car manufacturing until later: mixed steel/plastic construction, low weight, small frontal area. It was the first Porsche with a plastic body and 100 examples had to be built in order to qualify for the GT class. This was followed by a further 20 vehicles, of which 16 were assembled. The rest provided the parts for the spare parts store.

    The 904 GTS displayed in the Porsche museum had, as a works car, an eight-cylinder two-litre engine and joined the line-up at Le Mans in 1964 and in 1965 driven by Mitter/Davis.

    Exactly five months after it was presented, Porsche achieved its fifth victory in this classic race on 26 April 1964 with the production 904 at the Targa Florio. Antonio Pucci and Colin Davis snatched victory ahead of Linge/Balzarini in an identical 904. Further victories followed: at the Tour de France, at the 1,000 kilometre race around the Nürburgring, in the Le Mans 24 hour race and in the following Reims 24 hour race. The 904 proved its roadworthiness at the Monte Carlo rally in 1965, where Eugen Böhringer still came in second despite a totally snow-covered course. The 904 fitted with four, six and eight-cylinder engines was not only a very successful racing car of the early 1960s, to this day it is still regarded as one of the most attractive.

    Re: Porsche Cayman Club Sport in 2010...

    Great if it reaches production, and to my mind much more sense than a Boxster Spyder. But don't expect much more in the way of power unless the new Porsche top brass don't consider the performance gap between top of the 987 range and bottom of 997 range sacrosanct. Smiley

    1953 Porsche 550 Coupé 

    The key to the character of the Cayman Club Sport, as on every Porsche, is the underlying vehicle concept. This unique combination of mid-mounted engine and hard-roof body was originally prototyped in 1953 on the Porsche 550 coupé. A closed-top version of the legendary 550 Spyder, it was specially developed for the 24 Hours of Le Mans. 

    1953-Porsche-550-Coupe-01_front.jpg

    In the early 1950s, though many of its production cars were being successfully campaigned, Porsche was not a manufacturer of race cars. As on-track challenges increased from other manufacturers' purpose-built competition machines, Porsche realized it could no longer rely on modified versions of its 356 production car to carry the corporate banner in international events. In early 1953, Porsche began its first factory derived race car project. Engineers drew from the original 356 prototype, which had placed the powerplant in front of the rear axle in a mid-engine format, and from the era's Glockler-Porsche race cars, which used a similar layout. Chassis design was also based on the successful, Porsche-powered Glockler cars, utilizing a welded, steel-ladder frame with six cross members, capped by aluminium body work.

    1953-Porsche-550-Coupe-01_rear.jpg

    Using a production-based, Super 1500 engine, the factory installed the 1500cc push-rod "boxer" Fours into two machines: chassis 550-01 and 550-02. In its premiere outing on May 31, 1953, 550-01 won its first-ever event, taking victory in the rain at the Nurburgring. Though the race was held in inclement weather, the 550-01 car competed as a roadster, minus its aero-aiding hardtop. With hardtops in place, both of the 550 cars battled to a truly remarkable dead-even finish at that year's 24-hour endurance race at Le Mans, with car 550-02 (co-driven by journalist Paul Frere) granted the 1500cc class victory. Later that year, car 550-01 won the 1000 kilometre race in Buenos Aires, and both machines competed in the grueling, five-day, 3000-kilometer Carrera Panamericana. Car 550-02 took the class win, after sister-car 550-01 retired with the fastest time in four of the event's eight stages.

    "Potential official Porsche race series for Cayman Club Sport (below Carrera Cup)"

    See, this really sounds fantastic to me in the USA. As a privateer, a Cup car is way out of my budget. A Cayman series however? Hell-friggen-yes. I would be all over that without question.

    DO IT Porsche. Do it!

    The current "Cayman Interseries" is dealer sponsored and not Porsche Motorsport supported and only East Coast. Otherwise, it is a fantastic idea.

    Agreed - it will be great to see Porsche demonstrate the full potential of the Cayman Club Sport! Smiley

    Autofarm Porsche Cayman S

    Autofarm Porsche Cayman S - 01.jpg

    Porsche specialists Autofarm create the Cayman that Porsche daren’t...

    (April 2009)

    Car-themed ‘what ifs?’ are something of a petrolhead’s disease. They’re a great way of passing the time, and they come no more controversial or topical than this favourite. ‘What if Porsche whipped out the Weissach pencil- sharpener and really went to work on the Cayman?’ If the rumours of a factory Cayman Club Sport are true, it seems Porsche may soon provide us armchair engineering fantasists with an answer. In the meantime there’s the Autofarm RS. 

    The Oxfordshire-based 911 specialists have developed a tuning programme aimed at making the most of the Cayman’s favourable weight distribution, and in the case of their full-house demo car, a trackday weapon to make GT3 drivers develop a nervous twitch from constantly looking in their rear-view mirror.

    Although Autofarm’s upgrades are available for the standard 3.4 ‘S’ engine, this car has the company’s big-bore conversion that takes the capacity out to 3.7 litres. Schrick cams, new induction, freer-flowing cats and an easier-breathing exhaust raise power from 315 to 367bhp, with torque swelling from 273 to 295lb ft – the latter virtually identical to a 997 GT3. In true RS fashion, reducing weight completes the pincer assault, so the front bonnet and rear hatch are carbon-fibre, the latter including a polycarbonate rear screen.

    In addition, there are lightweight wheels (unusually of Japanese origin), new H&R springs and anti-roll bars, bigger brakes and the all-important Quaife limited-slip differential. Extensive detail modifications – many aimed at track use – complete a lengthy build-sheet.

    This is a Cayman that musters nearly 300bhp per ton, and although it’s perfectly well behaved on a light throttle, the deeper and louder exhaust note soon hints at the potential within. Accelerate hard from low revs in a high gear and the flat-six’s booming note reverberates around the cabin, the car surging forward in a manner alien to the standard Cayman S where, inevitably, you’d need to change down one, if not two gears to complete a brisk overtake. The acceleration keeps on building as the motor really begins to howl, revealing a steely midrange and an energetic top end that dumps a pure Porsche fix straight into your veins. With some crisp ECU remapping, a sports clutch and a short-shift kit for the gear linkage, you can really make the most of the engine’s new-found boisterousness, revelling in its response and lugging ability between shortly spaced corners.

    Sadly for us today, sub-zero temperatures aren’t a great mix with the stiffer chassis and the cold and fidgety Michelin Pilot Cup Sports. There’s reasonable grip, but the ride quality has predictably deteriorated, especially around town. In these conditions a sudden spike of second-gear torque easily unsticks the rear wheels from the road surface – even in a straight line – but the Cayman remains controllable and beautifully balanced, like the standard car. Only track time will show whether the suspension modifications have been a complete success.

    Would you buy one of these instead of a second-hand 997 GT3? Because at £36,000 for the modifications you’re looking at here, the two are uncomfortably close once you’ve factored in the price of a used Cayman S. Of course, you can purchase the modifications in stages – the 3.7 engine build, for example, is around £16,000 all-in. That’s significantly less than dropping in a 3.8 997 ‘S’ engine, but you’ll need to be a determined "Caymanista" to begin a project build. But with the potential inherent in the car, it’s easy to see why you might be.

    Parr Porsche Cayman S Turbo

    Parr Porsche Cayman S Turbo - 01.jpg

    Renowned Porsche specialist Parr gives Porsche Cayman a massive power boost...

    (November 2009)

    You should have seen his face,’ exclaims the owner of our featured Cayman. ‘There we were behind this fully wrung-out RS4; he pulled to the left, and we just blew past him. Poor guy couldn’t understand what was going on…’

    You’re looking at a small, orange menace to the Porsche establishment’s pecking order. What Mr Audi driver had no way of knowing is that beneath the oh-so-subtle body modifications to this Cayman lies the best part of 500 turbocharged horses.

    Developed for the UK market by renowned Porsche road and racing specialists Parr, this series 1 Cayman Sport is the first recipient of their turbo conversion. It’s a light pressure set-up, with a large, single turbine boosting at around 0.35 bar and fed air via a water-to-air intercooler, which itself is cooled with the aid of a third central radiator in the nose.

    There are also larger fuel injectors to squirt in the higher volumes required, a new intake plenum and air filter and a redesigned air box, plus a different exhaust from the headers back. What there isn’t, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, is any change to the internals. Eyebrows may well be raised, but Parr claims that converted examples overseas have clocked up over 30,000 miles without mishap.

    Part of their confidence also stems from the less stressed, light pressure nature of the conversion. This car has been rolling roaded at 480bhp at 7400rpm with a little more still to come, a figure entirely comparable with a 997 Turbo. But whereas the 911 makes 501lb ft of torque, this Cayman makes do with 370lb ft, and with a far more conventional torque curve than the 997T’s freakishly flat plateau from 2100 all the way to 4000rpm.

    So, as the figures suggest, in reality this engine has a completely different character from the boosted 911. No, there isn’t the same ferocious kick of torque, but then the lighter weight of the Cayman negates some of that disadvantage. Once the blower is spinning past 2500rpm you’re very much aware of its assistance, and it goes on providing that storming urge all the way to the newly raised 7800rpm cut-off, whereas a 997T is running out of puff far earlier. In effect, it’s similar to the standard Cayman S in delivery, and you can revel in revs just as you would in that car, albeit with the added option to surf almost ridiculous levels of mid-range grunt that make overtaking an easy and less gear-dependent task.

    And you need to know about the sublime noise it makes. At about 3000rpm it starts to howl with a savage intensity and the sound when you lift briskly off the throttle is of air being slashed with a giant meat cleaver.

    This car also has a load of Car Graphic tuning parts fitted, including the front splitter and rear diffuser, plus the ducktail wing on the rear lid, 20mm lower progressive-rate springs, larger anti-roll bars and larger cross-drilled and grooved discs. There’s also a Quaife LSD, GT3 nose vent and Parr’s own geometry settings. The result is no discernable loss of comfort compared with the standard car, and a Cayman that feels supremely well balanced and alert. Even on wet roads, the diff and the easily modulated power delivery mean it’s very exploitable.

    Right from the start, the guys at Parr were keen that the costs involved didn’t place the car in direct competition with a 911 Turbo, and at £11,240 fully fitted for the engine mods they have to a large part succeeded. Factoring in the current market value of a used Cayman S, you could be holding the keys to a turbocharged near-500bhp mid-engined Porsche for around £35,000. This car is as outrageously exciting as that prospect sounds.

    Re: Porsche Cayman Club Sport in 2010...

    Would it make sense to release a Cayman RS at the end of the 987 cycle

    The car uses the same wheel sizes as the 998 prototypes (reportedly 19" and 20" rims), hence the cutout of the wheel arches. I am quite certain that this car features the 987´s successor underneath. Smiley
