Occasional departures from the essence of Spotted 9s seem to be well received if they are extraordinary, and today’s sighting is no exception. Introducing the 2012 Porsche Cayman S-Black. A limited edition production version of the Cayman was referred to by Road & Track Magazine as a more sinister version of the Cayman S line.

Ready to pounce

The Black trim has been introduced by the Porsche product team earlier on the 911 and Boxster S trims this year. Besides the black on black treatment throughout, the Cayman S Black also boasts 10 more horsepower under the hood than its non black counterparts, for a total of 330 bhp generated by a 3.4-liter 6-cylinder engine.

Even the interior materials are black, including leather seats, while the same color is used for the background of the instruments and the stitching of the board. The standard equipment includes Bi-Xenon adaptive headlights, LED daytime running lights, the Sport Design wheel, cruise control and a BOSE Sound Package Plus, which integrates audio, navigation system, speakerphone and the AUX, USB and iPod.

With only a reported 500 making their way stateside, simply getting behind the wheel will be sinful enough, imagine the repentance you’ll have to make after taking the Cayman S Black out of the garage and onto the road.
