Porsche Cayman S – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you salivated at the Porsche Boxster Spyder but longed for something with a fixed roof, the rumor mill has something tantalizing in store for you. According to reports, Porsche is preparing to give a similar treatment to the Cayman.

Tentatively called the Cayman Clubsport, the hardcore coupe is tipped to get a 20-30 horsepower boost over the 300 hp offered from the 3.4-liter flat-six in the existing Cayman S. Couple that with a weight reduction scheme and similar chassis mods as those carried out on the Spyder and you're looking at a mid-engined Porsche with a 0-60 time in the high fours.

A host of visual enhancements are likely to set it apart from the standard model. But at this point we're looking largely at speculation – the second time such rumors have rounded the mill – so don't go canceling your 911 GT3 order just yet.

      Cayman S has 320 hp not 300. Also, it already runs in the high 4s. With more power/less weight and pdk, it could potentially do low-mid 4's.

      It makes me sad that Porsche will never allow the Cayman to be exploited to its full potential do to being able to nip at a Carrera's heels.

      Who wrote this article???? Check your sources pal. The current Cayman S is already 320hp not 300 and it is a 4.6 second 0-60 car on paper and probably faster in real life. If Porsche builds this car it is likely to be a low 4 second 0-60 car.

      "A host of visual enhancements are likely to set it apart from the standard ..."

      no. even George Lucas using CGI can't beautify this odd looker.

      This sounds very, very good.

      Sounds nice, but it's just a shadow of what the car could be. So long as the 911 is held sacred the Cayman will never live up to its true potential. At least, nit from the factory.

      Where is my Cayman GT2?

      I'm gonna go with no, because it could encroach on the 911's territory.

      Yay! I'll take one in orange!

      Okay so some numbers may be a little off. I am glad to see new vehicle from Porsche that is small, light weight(ish), and rear wheel drive.
