Porsche had promised that they will unveil a new mid-engined sports coupe in Los Angeles this month, and they did, although the word NEW was not completely relevant!

It is the Cayman R, a semi stripped-out version of the Cayman S, with new colors and wheels, and 10 more horsepower! Porsche says the R, inspired by mid-engined 904 coupes of the 1960s, has been developed to provide pure, distilled driving dynamics.

Than 10 hp though make it the most powerful mid-engine car they’ve ever made. Combine that with Porsche’s seven-speed dual-clutch PDK (Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) transmission and the Sport Chrono package then it sprints to 60 in 4.7 seconds, and offers magnificent handling like a go Kart!

Although it’s 55 kg lighter than the Cayman and comes with fewer luxury, it costs more and has an MSRP of £51,731 in UK and $ 66,300 in the US.
