Porsche has launched a more powerful version of its Cayman coupe.

Called the S Sport, the new range-topper's 3.4-litre engine puts out 303bhp. That's 8bhp more than the Cayman S, and 58bhp more than the standard Cayman.

The new model should be able to handle the power, with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard. Bi-xenon headlamps, sports seats in leather and a sports exhaust are also included in the price.

The S Sport is available in different colours to the standard car, including the striking orange and green colour schemes seen on the 911 GT3 RS. The black painted alloy wheels, door mirrors and air intakes also differentiate the S Sport from the other Cayman models.

On the inside, the steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake lever are finished in Alcantara, and theres a numbered plaque on the glovebox.

Just 700 Cayman S Sports will be built, with UK sales starting on September 13. Prices start from 49,890.
