Porsche Malaysia (Sime Darby Auto Performance) today introduced the 718 Cayman SportDesign Series, available in very limited quantity. After nearly two years of its first debut in Malaysia, the Porsche 718 Cayman has been given its due revamp inside and out. Only 15 units of the 718 Cayman SportDesign Series are available in three colors, namely the Racing Yellow, Guards Red and Carrera White; five units of each color.
At a starting price of RM 625,000, the Porsche 718 Cayman SportDesign is considered a somewhat affordabke sports car for daily commutes and visits to the track. A number of options has been made standard on this Series to offer owners an immersive Porsche experience.
“The 718 Cayman SportDesign Series is aimed particularly at drivers who appreciate a vehicle that is suitable for everyday use but do not want to sacrifice sportiness,” said Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance.
Porsche’s unmistakable design cues are prevalent wih the 718 Cayman SportDesign, highlighted by subtle carbon fiber trimmings for an extra element of individualization and the SportDesign’s new front-end, with a newly designed rear apron. To spruce up the profile, the 718 Cayman SportDesign has contrasting black accents on the door handles and from the rear, centrally positioned black tailpipes. Standard exterior highlights include LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) and 3-D rearlights with four-spot brake lights. The sports car rolls on the forged high gloss black, one-piece alloys to go with 20-inch wheels in either the Carrera S or Carrera Sport Wheel design.
To pair with the exterior well, the interior of the 718 Cayman SportDesign adds carbon decorative and black leather interior accents to impart an even sportier cabin. Additionally, the sports car is equipped with 14-way power seats that include comfort memory foam for the driver and front passenger. For entertainment, the 718 Cayman SportDesign comes with a standard BOSE Surround Sound system.
As with every Porsche, performance on the 718 Cayman SportDesign is guaranteed to be enthralling with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as a springboard to sheer exhilaration. This car is lowered by 10mm to match the sportier chassis tunning, translating to greater overall agility. To further enhance performance the car's Sport Chrono Package and PDK help pump the car from 0 - 100 km/h in under four seconds. Even with as an able sports car, the car’s consumption is relatively decent with a combined fuel consumption of 7.0 l/100 km.
The Porsche 718 Cayman SportDesign is available for viewing across all Porsche Centers in the country. A standard 4-year warranty with free maintenance package is applicable for this model and all other models.
