When it comes to the Porsche Cayman R, less is definitely more. The bare-bones R edition of the sporty two-passenger coupe forgoes standard amenities like air conditioning and stereo, and slims down with carbon-fiber-backed seats and aluminum doors to drop an impressive 121 pounds. In the process, Porsche has also managed to eke out ten more horsepower than the Cayman S, making it quicker, lighter, and overall more fun than previous models.
While cruising around Los Angeles in our bold, red tester, we found the Porsche Cayman R to be a pleasure to drive. Although the suspension is a bit tight, it still works well as a daily driver in the city. However, here's fair warning: you may get frustrated that you can't push the Cayman to its full potential on normal surface streets — this coupe is definitely one you'll want to take to the tracks. While extras add up fast, those who can do without Bi-Xenon lights, navigation, A/C and the Sport Chrono package can have a very fun car at a much more reasonable price.
