Recycling Cayman S

Porsche Cayman S - Recycling


Intelligent lightweight construction is, and always has been, a fundamental aspect of the Porsche philosophy – for both technical and ecological reasons. This combination forms the basis for achieving low fuel consumption values in conjunction with high performance. On the technical side, various components are made with a high proportion of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steel. The materials used have been selected for their ability to withstand load, yet they are considerably lighter than conventional steel. As a result, the bodyshell of the Cayman models has a light alloy content of approximately 44%.

On the ecological side, all materials used are meticulously selected. We use only state-of-the-art components, with priority given to products manufactured in a sustainable manner where possible. All synthetic components are easily recoverable and each material is labelled to facilitate its separation for recycling. The reduction in the number of plastic variants helps to ensure more efficient recycling. Recycled plastics are used where they meet our exacting technical requirements.

In short, the Cayman is around 95% recoverable.

In addition, Porsche uses a high proportion of environmentally friendly water-based paints. For us, environmental protection does not begin with the vehicle manufacturing process. It starts at the planning and development stage.
