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.
