Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2014 model year marks the third generation of the Porsche Cayman. With a new aluminum-intensive body structure at its core, the 2014 Cayman is lighter, more agile and 40-percent stiffer than the outgoing version. And despite the price difference, well-appointed Cayman models exhibit the same premium look and feel as the flagship 911.
For the 2012 model year, the Cayman lineup adds an Ipanema Blue paint finish to the color palette along with the new high-performance Cayman R, which offers a 330-horsepower version of Porsche's renowned 3.4-liter boxer engine, revised suspension componentry and additional weight-saving measures.
The Cayman receives a new 2.9-liter boxer engine, while the Cayman S receives a new 3.4-liter engine, both providing more horsepower and improved fuel economy over last year's units. A new PDK (Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) double clutch auto-manual transmission is made available, while a six-speed manual gearbox is now standard on the base Cayman.
While many assume the pricey 911 is Porsche's most exhilarating sports car, a spin in the 2015 Cayman coupe might just convince them otherwise. Designed to mimic the weight balance of the world's most sophisticated racecars, this mid-engine coupe is an enthusiast driver's dream come true. While competitors such as the Chevrolet Corvette, Audi TT and even the Nissan 370Z all offer similar or better straight-line performance, none can match the Cayman's ability to wed driver and car into a single symbiotic being. The Cayman offers a choice of three flat-6 boxer engines and a long list of advanced features, including a Burmester audio system and adaptive cruise control. Dynamic curbside appeal comes standard.
