Dortmund-based German Porsche specialists 9ff Fahrzeugtechnik GmbH have unveiled a new addition to their Cayman lineup - the Cayman S CR-42.

The CR-42 builds on the company's aero and chassis kits for the Cayman S, adding a 4.1-liter engine putting out 420 hp and 321 foot-pounds of torque. The maxi-Cayman hustles from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, and from 0 to 200 km/h in less than 15 seconds. For customers in less of a hurry, 9ff also offers 380-hp and 350-hp versions.

The 9ff aero kit is fairly simple, comprising a high downforce front bumper with augmented air intakes and built-in splitter, and a rear diffuser cover adapted to the 9ff dual exhaust system.

The Cayman rides on 9ff's custom 3-piece center-lock 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, sporting 235/35 tires in front, and 265/30 tires in the rear. The "Hockenheim" sport chassis kit for the Cayman includes fully adjustable coilover shocks.

A full-on CR-42 sells for about $164,500 in Europe. If you're in the U.S., give Eurocar Boutique a call. More pics follow the break.

      Those rims are god awful. My dog's ass looks better. Those germans must have been drinking too much beer when they spec'd those rims.

      They remind me of SC430 wheels. And that's not a compliment :(

      But for an extra $100K?
      $160K gives you a LOT of options for supercar performance... I guess there's a market for everything.

      I spoke to 9ff about the wheels. They are incredibly light 17 and 15 lbs rear/front. Additionally, 9ff says that they are able to increase top speed by aiding aero efficiency. They certainly may not please everyone, but in terms of the performance potential - they certianly seem to fit the bill.

      One look at the 959 and XJ220 proves the point. Actually, the more I look at them, I realize that they give the Cayman an Uber-exotic look that it never had.

      I like the 959ish wheels.

      I happen to like these rims. They are a welcome change from the all-to-familiar wheel-spoke types that every other car sports.

      I guess there is something wrong with me. I can understand how many people will like the foglights(?) that look like gun barrels, I'm not crazy about them. And, I agree with several people here, I don't like the wheels. Not that they need to be replaced with something with "spider-web" spokes. I guess if they were even plainer and perhaps not the same color as the car.

      All this crap about smaller cars, better mileage, "man, they are so hot." It's utter nonsense. The caveman never worried about using up all of the forest when he needed wood to warm himself or cook with. We as intelligent life forms always have come up with an alternative fuel source. This country has been in the forefront of invention ever since we excisted. We're letting big business run this country. It's not the Republicans or Democrats. It doesn't matter who is in office. Big business has and always will run this country. Until we as a united people change that problem. The world economy is a asinine venture for our country. Open trade is a farce. We need free trade, which we will never have. We are in bed with the Arabs and the Japanese. We get none of the fuel from the Alaskian Pipeline system. 300,000 ton tankers take it all to Japan. Do we get their automobiles for a very good price, inturn, no. Everytime we hear the slightest hint of a alternative fuel source, the fuel companies bury it. That's because they want to milk the Arab fuel source until the wells are bone dry. They don't care, at all, about the US citizens. All they care about is their quarterly reports, profit. Why do you think Exxon is the richest company on the earth. No trickle down of the profits. Their employees on the lower end of the ladder, make chicken feed for their salaries. I don't like big government, but we need our government to start putting the people of this country ahead of everything else. We need, without any interference from anyone or anybody, research & development on better resources of fuel, now, not for the future, now! As far as how much we are charge per barrel of crude oil, we used the most, we should pay the least. Just like Wal-mart, they buy the most goods, they demand the smallest cost for purchases. The same should apply for crude oil. We need to tell big business where to get off. We need to tell the Arabs, we want crude oil for $10 a barrel or you can eat the stuff. See if the rest of the world will make up for their profit lost. It all comes down to us taking this country back. It's suppose to be a country by the people and for the people, not by business for big business and their profits. Look at health care and retirement packages. Who is paying for that. If you give your whole life to the company you work for, then they should be forced to pay our hospitalization, very good salaries and pensions at no cost to us. We deserve it. It's not like they can't afford too. There hasn't been a trickle down economy for way too long. If everyone in the USA would stand up for their rights given to us by our forefathers, this country would be ours, again, instead of belonging to big business. Quit being complacent and let's take the coutry back. We have the ways & means to do so throught our voting. Vote these worthles asinine idiots out of office. Quit being complacent and thinking the next person will be worst. Men like Kennedy and Tip O'Neal have no business being in office for that length of time. Of course, O'Neal is dead. But that's beside the point. They get too much power being in office that long. It has nothing to do with experience. Let them run for one term. If they suck, get them out. If they do well the first term, let them run one more time, then out. That's all I have on this.

      Carster, what are you smoking? That rear end looks nothing like an S2000.
      This is what an S2000 looks like:

      Its lights are straight up and flared at the end, whereas the cayman's lights lay flat and have a more hard-oval shape.
      To anyman USA: I salute you sir, for typing that much, fully knowing that hardly anyone will read it. Kudos to you, sir.

      Howard Kerr...those are brake cooling ducts...not foglights.

      You need to spend more time in a garage - and out of your hair dresser's chair!

      People who dont anything about the subject should shut the hell up

      The Stuttgart people are losing their lunch over this one. I'm sure they are disgusted how some aftermarket company can make their product look that bad. I'd take a 911 Carrera 4S, or in this case, a Cayman S with just a performance upgrade any day over these Japanese looking pieces of crap.
