It was only a few weeks ago the German sports car make Porsche unveiled the Boxster Spyder , an even lighter version of the entry level open air Stuttgart special. In order to make the Boxster even more competitive, Porsche’s engineers managed to ditch over 150 pounds sports car by using light weight material for larger body parts like aluminum doors before stripping it down to 1275 kg by removing the air conditioner and then the electrically operated convertible top.
Seeing as the new Spyder was such a success, Porsche plans to apply a similar treatment to the fixed roof version of the baby 911 . The special edition sports car will be called the Porsche Cayman Club Sport and although there is no rag top opening actuators to get rid of the design team from Zuffenhausen has figured out a way to make up for it. Aside from the weight reduction, the Club Sport Cayman’s flat six will put down a total of 320 HP to the rear wheels, a factor that can quickly be translated into enhanced performance.
