The Porsche Cayman S Black Edition comes with a 3.4-litre flat-six engine tuned to deliver 330 hp. The extra power is shaped at 7,400 rpm (an additional 200 rpm vs the standard car), while the maximum torque remains unaffected at 370Nm at 4,750 rpm. Acceleration from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) is improved by a tenth of a second to 5.1 seconds with the six-speed manual conduction, and to 5.0 seconds with the optional Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) respectively. With the Launch Control activated on the PDK Sport Chrono package option, acceleration improves further to 4.8 seconds.
The top speed of the Porsche Cayman S Black version is just over one mph faster than that of the Cayman S – 173 mph (279 km/h) with the physical transmission and 172 mph (277 km/h) with PDK. In line with the Porsche Intelligent show principles, fuel consumption of the Porsche Cayman S Black Edition remains the same to that of the standard car, despite the increase in horsepower. The Porsche Cayman S Black Edition with manual transmission returns 29.7mpg Combined, and 30.1mpg joint with PDK. Likewise, CO2 remains 223g/km for the manual and 221g/km for the PDK.
