It's not just the added ponies that set Porsche's new Cayman S Black Edition apart from a standard Cayman S. Unlike other Cayman S models, this mid-engine sports car doesn't have contrasting trim—its body, Boxster Spyder wheels, side air grills, tailpipe and leather interior are all black. But don't judge this car by its exterior. Under the hood is a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine with increased horsepower, up to 330 from 320. As a result, zero-to-62 acceleration is 5.1 seconds (a tenth of a second quicker than a regular Cayman S), and speed can reach 172 mph (a whole 1.24 mph faster than your neighbor's ride). You'll need that extra oomph to race to your nearest Porsche dealer—only 500 of these limited-edition suckers are available. From $67,500; porsche.com.
