16K-MILE 2012 Porsche Cayman R

Up for auction is this 2012 Porsche Cayman R.  Introduced in 2011, the Cayman R appealed to track fanatics and driving purists that demanded unadulterated performance.  With an all-business interior and unique exterior features, this Cayman stands out from the rest.  Weighing in 121lbs lighter than the already lean Cayman S, the R is designed purely for smashing lap times and delivering an electrifying driving experience that is purely Porsche.  Given their nature, these cars often see modifications and track use, which is why we are especially proud to offer this museum quality example for auction.

After its European delivery, this Cayman R spent its entire life carefully maintained at the Wilson Collection in Florida. This 18,000 square foot air-conditioned facility has helped maintain this car to stay in the same condition as it was when it was new.  Having never seen track use or winter conditions, this Cayman is free of paint chips, scratches and dents.  Finished in a pristine coat of Guards Red, this R features a standard aero kit, fixed rear spoiler, and lightweight gloss black 19-inch wheels from the Boxster Spyder.  This Cayman R sports a factory Porsche logo graphic along the bottoms of the doors, a nod to Porsche’s historic racing cars.  

The interior of this car reflects the same pristine and original condition as the exterior.  There are no flaws to be noted throughout the black leather interior.  This Cayman R is equipped with a PCM with GPS and Bluetooth as well as the Sound Package Plus.  The interior package is finished in a stunning paint-matched Guards Red.  This ultra sporty red and black combination is complimented by exclusive lightweight door pulls and Sport Chrono clock.

Carrying an original MSRP of over $85K, this Cayman is loaded with desirable and exclusive options including:

  • Sound Package Plus with Storage
  • Automatic A/C
  • Sport Chrono Package Plus
  • Sport Seats
  • Sport Exhaust System
  • Sport Look Footrest
  • Fuel Cap with Aluminum Finish

The Cayman R utilizes lightweight aluminum doors from the GT3 to achieve an enhanced power to weight ratio.  The Cayman R also sits 0.4” lower than a Cayman S with sport suspension.  This Cayman R is equipped with a lightning fast dual-clutch PDK transmission and Sport Chrono Package Plus.  The factory added exhaust system (a $2810 option) allows the driver to revel in the sound of this car’s naturally aspirated 3.4L flat-six engine. The Cayman R puts out 325bhp and 273 lb-ft of torque, accelerating it from 0-60 in just 4.2 seconds.  All services are up to date and were completed by Braman Porsche in West Palm Beach, Florida.


This Cayman R’s next owner can rest easy knowing this car spent its entire life under the close attention and care of 7 full-time car collection employees. This car has never seen track use, however, it didn’t collect dust either as the owner states it has been regularly started and driven.

This single owner Cayman R comes with a clean Carfax, all original books, window sticker, and 2 keys.

    @Billymartin yes that is correct, The Wilson Collection is the owner and is selling the Cayman R. Did you have a question about the Cayman?

    This is a beautiful R. Most, like one that I own, are dedicated track cars, often heavily modified for track use. There are very few low-miles, unmodified R’s as clean as this one out there. If I didn’t already have one I’d be all over this one. GLWTS

    Beautiful car. Anyone know the production numbers on the R? Im torn between bidding on this or a gt4.

  • November88 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    I’ll start off the bidding. These cars are all over the place but I assume it has to do with previous track use, condition and transmission. This one looks like a special one. GLWTA
