Porsche really are producing some of the best machinery that they have ever done in their history. The new 911 is the most capable car to wear the legendary three digit nameplate and the new Boxster makes a very good argument as to why the 911 costs so much more than itself. We have all been waiting to see what the Cayman will offer and indeed ponder if it negates the need for its bigger brother all together.
This is the 2013 Porsche Cayman, in essence a coupe variation of the much loved Boxster. The new car boasts more power and less weight than the outgoing model, not to mention a step-up in refinement. Underneath the much more extroverted stance sits either a 2.7 litre flat-six in the Cayman or a 3.4 litre unit of the Cayman S. They produce 275BHP and 325BHP respectively. A new Cayman can do a of 0-62MPH time of 5.7 seconds and is capable of a top speed that hits 165MPH. The Cayman S cranks it up to 11 with a 0-62MPH sprint complete in just 4.7 seconds and a terminal velocity of 176MPH. Despite the increase in performance both models are capable of over 35MPG.
