About Porsche Cayman
The Porsche Cayman is one of the most highly-rated sports cars in the world today. It comes in three variants- the base Cayman with a 2.7 liter engine, the Cayman S with a 3.4 liter engine, and the high-end GTS with 3.4 liter engine but 340 horsepower.
The Porsche Cayman is relatively new, having been launched in 2006. The Cayman was designed as an alternative to the well-loved 911, although it is a bit cheaper and smaller compared to its older brother. Still, the Cayman has proven to be a very popular sports car despite being in the market in less than a decade.
Some of the celebrities who have been spotted driving around in a Porsche Cayman are Lindsay Lohan, Amelle Berrabah of the pop group Sugababes, actress Bridget Marquardt, and Hugh Laurie of “House” fame.
The base Cayman has a six-speed manual with an optional seven-speed dual clutch gearbox which can enable the car to sprint to 60 miles per hour in an impressive 5.1 seconds. On the other hand, the Cayman S has 325 horsepower with 272 pound-feet. With a standard six-speed manual, the Cayman S also comes with an optional PDK-dual clutch gearbox. The Cayman S can sprint from standstill to 60 miles per hour in 4.8 seconds.
On the other hand, the GTS model is the fastest Cayman in terms of acceleration capable of doing 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds. In fact, the Cayman GTS with PDK gearbox is faster than the more expensive 911 Carerra.
The optional PDK transmission not only provides a boost to the Cayman in terms of acceleration. It can also make Cayman drivers happy as it gives them the best of both worlds—the traffic-friendliness of automatic transmission and the raw, hardcore feel of conventional manual transmission.
The base Cayman has standard features such as 18-inch wheels, four-speaker audio system, seven-inch touch screen LCD, windshield wipers capable of sensing rains, and front windows which are water repellant. All Cayman models also have eight airbags, and electronic stability aids.
On the other hand, the Cayman S has bigger wheels at 19 inches. It also has a wider track for enhanced lateral grip, and xenon lights that are three times brighter than the traditional halogen systems.
Customization is fun with the Cayman as there are a lot of upgrades that owners can choose from. There’s a cruise control system which makes use of a radar sensor in monitoring incoming traffic and prevents the driver from bumping into another vehicle as a result. There are also upgrades for exterior paint, seats, and carbon fiber. Another impressive add-on is the high-end Burmester sound system with a 12-speaker set-up.
The cabin of the Porsche Cayman is very sleek and upscale. The interiors are designed in a way that empowers the driver, with a dashboard and easily accessible controls prominently placed inside.
The past Cayman models were bashed for having a cramped cabin, but the 2014 version now offers ample headroom and legroom. This makes the Cayman stand out among other sports cars which are not exactly known for their ample space inside. The seats are also supportive and comfortable, and owners can even customize these with a wide range of sport seat options.
Outside the cabin, the Cayman has a more assertive look with sloping headlights, nice side scallops and more prominent lines. The body of the Cayman is made mostly by aluminum, making it 66 pounds lighter compared to the previous model. The wheelbase is also 2.4 inches longer and it also has a wider track for better stability.
While sports cars are not exactly known for their cargo space, the Cayman does have 15 cubic feet of rear space which is almost the same size as those offered by mid-sized sedans.
The base Cayman can deliver 21 miles per gallon when driven in the city, and 30 miles per gallon when in the highway. The 3.4 liter engine present in the Cayman S and GTS has an average fuel consumption of 20 miles per gallon for city driving and 28 miles per gallon for highway driving.
Drivers will be impressed with the electronically-assisted steering of the Cayman. Braking in all models is also powerful and immediate. The superior suspension of the Cayman S, however, makes it well-suited for drivers with the need to speed.
The price of the 2014 base Porsche Cayman is in the $50,000 range. The higher-end Cayman S and GST are in the $60,000 range. Adding the PDK transmission will mean an extra $3,000, and other customization options would skyrocket the price of the Cayman to around $90,000.
The Cayman is priced cheaper against competitors like the Mercedes Benz SLK 350 and Lotus Evora, but it is more expensive compared to the Audi TTS and Chevrolet Corvette.
