The Cayman R was introduced in 2011 as the pinnacle of the 987 generation. Based on the 2009 987.2 Cayman S, the Cayman R was lighter and came with additional power and handling upgrades. A 54.8 kg weight saving over the Cayman S was achieved with the use of 19 inch lightweight wheels shared with the Boxster Spyder, aluminium doors from the 997 911 GT3, carbon fibre bucket seats from the 997 911 GT2, and with the removal of the radio, storage compartments, door handles and rear wiper. There were minor changes to aerodynamics with the Cayman R, mostly coming from the use of the rarely selected Porsche OEM aerokit, introduced as an option in 2007. A carbon rear spoiler was added as well as more aggressive front fascia spoilers. With all new passive sports suspension, the Cayman R was 10 mm lower than a Cayman S equipped with PASM, or a full 20 mm lower than a Cayman S equipped with standard passive suspension.

The powertrain is a 3.4 litre direct injection flat-six engine with 326 hp with a six-speed manual or seven-speed PDK automatic gearbox. The standard Cayman R can accelerate from 0–62 mph in 4.9 seconds with the optional seven-speed PDK dual clutch transmission or with the optional Sport Chrono Package offering launch control, it can accelerate from 0–62 mph in 4.7 seconds. The Cayman R also boasts a top speed of 175 mph.

Presented in Aqua Blue with silver decals and black leather heated seats and sitting on optional 19-inch Turbo II forged aluminium wheels this example has just been subject to a major 12-year service which included new brake lines throughout, new battery and all new air conditioning condensers. Specified with the optional PDK gearbox, PCM, automatic climate control, park assist, heated seats, sound package plus and mobile phone preparation. Owned by our vendor since October 2022 it has a full history file and although specified with few creature comforts the car boasts a Miltek exhaust system to complement one of Porsches best all round drivers cars. This is a well maintained, well optioned example of a very collectable car, many of which have been locked away but it would be a shame not to enjoy such a fabulous drivers example.
