Here’s What Magnus Walker Thinks About The 2012 Porsche Cayman R
In Magnus Walker’s most recent video on YouTube, he explores the 2012 Porsche Cayman R which he thinks is a hidden gem and a potential future classic that offers razor-sharp steering and handling.
Introduced at the 2010 LA Auto Show, the Cayman R showcased a lime green color reminiscent of the 1967 911R, marking Porsche’s revival of the iconic “R” designation. With a debut at a time when the Cayman was still considered the underdog to the 911, Porsche aimed to emphasize its superior handling without overshadowing the iconic 911.
Produced in limited numbers (621 units worldwide, with a split between manual and PDK transmissions), the Cayman R stands out for its agility. Despite boasting 330 horsepower and 270 ft-lb of torque from its 3.4-liter engine, the car’s nimble design and sub-3,000-pound weight has been tailored for driving enthusiasts who appreciate spirited drives on their favorite canyon roads.
Watch the video below to see what makes the Cayman R a standout in the Porsche lineup and an enticing prospect for collectors.
