The Cayman R is a track-tuned sports car based on the Cayman S. Thanks to a strong use of lightweight components and removal of equipment not associated with driving performance, the Cayman R only weighs 3025 lb (1372 kg), making it one of the lightest modern Porsche cars to date.
With the Cayman R, Porsche took weight reduction to the next level, and you need look no further than the interior door handle for proof. Instead of using a traditional metal handle, the Cayman R comes equipped with nylon straps. Aluminum and carbon fiber abounds, as the Cayman R is here to blow your doors off, figuratively speaking. That lightweight approach, coupled with a six cylinder, 3.4- liter engine producing 330 horsepower and north of 273 pound-feet of torque. It’s a remarkably well-balanced car, one that offers you advanced ceramic-composite brakes and a limited-slip differential, even though you may not need to make the most of them during a leisurely drive through the city. So forget that Sunday drive and put the Cayman R to work in Forza 4—you’ll be glad you did.
