Launched in 2011, the Porsche Cayman R was released as the track-oriented high-performance version of the 987 Cayman, with a claimed weight savings of 121 lbs over the standard model using lightweight materials and a bump in power over the standard Cayman. Built as a track car under prior ownership, this particular example was maintained by Deman Racing of Blauvelt, New York, for the CEO of JP Morgan, Jamie Dimon. It has received a 3.8L flat-six crate engine, carbon fiber body panels, semi-stripped race interior with Sparco Pro seats, FPA fire suppression, an AIM data acquisition system, and a full roll cage as well as Tarett suspension components, a Moton 2-way coilover kit, a Fabspeed headers-back exhaust system, PFC floating rotors, Forgeline 3-piece wheels with Pirelli slicks, and more. Claimed to have around 40 hours of track time on the build, this generously upgraded Cayman R is now being offered at auction by its seller out of Connecticut on a bill of sale (not registered for street use).
The Black (741) exterior has been extensively modified with a full carbon fiber front clip including the bumper, fenders, headlight covers, air intakes, hood, mirrors, and doors. Equipment includes a large fixed Clubsport wing with aluminum uprights, a single wiper conversion, AeroCatch hood latches, an external transmission cooler, front and rear tow hooks, a front splitter, silver side vents, and a center-exit exhaust. The 18” lightweight 3-piece Forgeline wheels are mounted with Pirelli racing tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cockpit has been readied for motorsport with a pair of Sparco Pro racing seats and Schroth harnesses, a full welded roll cage, a Rothsport steering wheel disconnect, an AIM data acquisition system, a Motorola radio with driver to passenger communication, and an FPA fire suppression system. The seller reports all modifications and original features are fully operational.
The original engine has been swapped out in favor of a naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six DFI Porsche crate engine claimed to produce up to 400 HP. Modifications include a Fabspeed headers-back exhaust system, Tarett mono toe links, Tarett engine and transmission mounts, PFC floating brake rotors front and rear, an external transmission cooler, and a Moton 2-way coilover system. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The serpentine belts are due for replacement, however, the seller states all other routine maintenance has been kept up to date.
This Cayman R is accompanied by some service documentation and a bill of sale.
