Porsche working on go-faster Cayman Clubsport

If you thought the Porsche Boxster Spyder (read news) was the business when it was unveiled last year but wanted something with a fixed roof, then you might just be in luck. According to recent reports, Porsche is preparing to give some similar treatment to it’s mid-range Cayman model.

Called (for now) the Cayman Clubsport, the hardcore coupe should get a power increase of 20-30 horses over the 300 hp offered from the 3.4-litre flat-six residing in the existing Cayman S. Couple that with a weight reduction scheme and similar chassis modifications to those carried out on the Spyder and you’re looking at a mid-engined Porsche with a 0-100 kph time in the high fours.

A range of visual enhancements are likely to distinguish it from the standard model. But at this point there is no official word so don’t go canceling any 911 orders just yet.
