2012 Porsche Cayman R

It’s always interesting to see a somewhat unusual build on any car and I think this one qualifies. This is a paint-to-sample Speed Yellow 2012 Porsche Cayman R. That it’s one of the few PTS Cayman R produced in itself makes this a pretty unique and desirable car. This one takes color to another level by adding a set of Guards Red painted wheels. Contrasting red and yellow in such a way certainly isn’t the typical setup and most won’t find it that desirable, but if we think of the Cayman R as a track car, which we probably should, the colors work just fine. They’re bold and bright and attention grabbing, just the sort of thing that any track car needs. I don’t know what sort of track use this Cayman may have seen, nor whether that was the intention of the original owner when choosing these colors, but it at least provides a possible reason for how this came together. I kinda like it!

As a predecessor of sorts to today’s Cayman GT4, the Cayman R ramped up the overall performance of the Cayman in an attempt to satisfy those craving more from these mid-engined Porsches. They aren’t as extreme in that sense as the GT4, but still provide a bit of extra punch with an additional 10 horses on tap relative to the Cayman S and the loss of over 100 lbs of weight. More power and less weight always go well together. It’s got improved aerodynamics as well. As a sendoff for the 987 the Cayman R does a nice job.

The standard colors, I have to say, were uninspiring so it’s really nice to see one of these in Speed Yellow. The red wheels do their thing and there’s a bit of both colors brought into the interior through Guards Red seat belts and a Speed Yellow painted center console. The overall condition looks quite good. The paint looks in very nice shape with both colors showing nice pop and the interior shows very minimal wear. It also has the very desirable GT seats. We aren’t provided much in the way of history or available documentation so you’ll want to investigate that.

Given the unique colors I don’t think the price here is too bad. There are more miles on this one than most others we see, but at just under 33K miles the mileage still is pretty reasonable. Assuming that it all checks out mechanically it should make for a nice buy and a thoroughly enjoyable machine.

  1. Nice find ! Although not all the colors were uninspiring – they did offer the Cayman R in Peridot Metallic. That was an awesome color !

  2. Sadly I’ve never liked Peridot. For whatever reason it just doesn’t work for me. But it definitely is a more interesting color!

  3. Just needs a green interior.
