The one word needed to describe the 2008 launching of the Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1 (besides the long name) is Black. The limited production Cayman S will come in all black and only black as it makes its 777 car production run. “You can have any color you want to as long as it is Black,” as Henry Ford used to say. But the special edition Porsche is no Model T to say the least.
Bolstering the German car is a 3.4 liter straight six pumping out 295-hp. With a zero-to-sixty time of 5.4 seconds you may not blow the doors off everything on the road but you will certainly look good at any speed. The sleek black of the exterior does not stop at the doors either, as the same color is carried on into the interior cock-pit of the car.
While behind the wheel of the Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1 Black will be all you see. Beyond the black are chrome latches for the doors and glove box and chrome badging to mark the limited edition cars. And if the full on Man in Black motif fails to widen your own stance they have set the special edition Cayman S up with 19″ wheels that are normally set upon the 911.
The Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1 is certainly not the fasted or most expensive Porsche out there, but it will be sure to make its presence known to all who see it.
