The Cayman has earned a particular reputation as a driver's car. For the latest model, the two-seater has been newly-developed from the ground up and -
after the 911 Carrera and Boxster roadster - is the third sports car model series from Porsche to feature innovative lightweight body design. The new
Cayman aims once more to set the class benchmark for driving performance, its longer wheelbase, all-new chassis and lower weight further optimizing the
established dynamic credentials of the mid-engine sports coupe.
Consequently, the new Cayman is up to 30 kg lighter than the prior model and offers up to 15 per cent greater fuel efficiency- despite its increased engine
output and driving performance. The new Cayman is more distinctive than ever. From the front, the new Cayman is marked by its dominant cooling air intakes,
which increase in size towards the sides of the car. Integrated into these are the round front lights with daytime running lights serving as a further
unmistakable identifying feature of the new Cayman.
The Porsche Cayman comes with a 2.7 litre flat-six cylinder engine with 275 bhp, rear-wheel drive, six-speed manual transmission, optional seven-speed
Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK). The Cayman S gets a meatier 3.4 litre flat-six cylinder engine with 325 bhp of power. The flat-six cylinder engines
are positioned in front of the rear axle to make these two-seater Porsche sports cars prime examples of efficient performance. The engines of both models
are up to 15 per cent more fuel-efficient due to petrol direct injection, thermal management, electrical system recuperation and auto start/stop function.
The Porsche Cayman is no doubt is ahead of most of the competition, not just in performance but also in fuel efficiency. The light weight construction,
down-sized engines and low carbon footprint makes the Porsche Cayman a cleaner sports car.
