Porsche will be launching a new special edition of it’s Cayman mid-engine coupe in November 2007 called the Porsche Cayman S “Porsche Design Edition 1”. The limited edition Cayman was conceived to be a nod to Porsche Design and the famous Chronograph 1s designed by Ferdinand Alexander Porsche 35 years ago.
The interior is done up with black leather and Alcantara upholstery while the center console, dashboard and door trims glisten in black. The sports steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake grip are also done up in non-slip black Alcantara. With this limited edition Cayman, it seems that black is once again the new black.
The Cayman Porsche Design Edition 1 is lower by 10mm than it’s siblings, and features standard Porsche Active Suspension Management that actively controls the hardness of the shocks. The 19 inch wheels (taken from the Type 997 Porsche 911 Turbo) with 235/35ZR19 tyres at the front and 265/35/ZR19 at the rear have 5mm spacers to give the Cayman a more intimidating stance.
All 777 lucky owners of this limited edition will also receive a briefcase containing a Flat Six Chronograph, a pocket knife, sunglasses, a pen, and a key wing all done in black – this includes the knife blade. The cars will be numbered on the lid of the glove box.
