Built on the code of the curve, the Porsche Cayman takes the direct path without ever going in a straight line. The coupe puts you way ahead of the curve.
Inside the 2014 Porsche Cayman, you’re always ahead of the curve. Instead of taking the direct path in a humdrum straight line, the Cayman follows the bold and adventurous code of the curve. Porsche takes the nonconformist approach by placing the heart of the coupe — a compact, mid-mounted boxer engine — a little less than 12 inches behind the heart of the driver. This puts the bulk of the weight near the middle which lowers the center of gravity and evens the weight between the front and rear axles. Using this method turns the Cayman into a master of the curve.
Delivering 275 hp power to the 2014 Porsche Cayman is a 2.7-liter displaced 6-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. Mated to the engine is a 6-speed manual transmission that accelerates the Cayman from 0 to 60 mph in a heart palpitating 5.4 seconds and a top speed of 165 mph. You can boost performance with the optional Sports Chrono Package and it’ll cut the 0 to 60 to 5.1 seconds – a whole .3 seconds. Just listen to the sound of the Cayman engine and see how it makes you feel.
In building the 2014 Porsche Cayman S, Porsche engineers couldn’t resist the challenge of throwing everything they had along with their passion. Giving the Cayman S its heart is a 3.4-liter, flat-six engine with DFI and VarioCam Plus. The Cayman S coupe generates 325 hp propelling it from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds with the speed maxing at 175 mph. Shave time from 4.7 to 4.4 by opting for the PDK and Sport Chrono package. And here’s the Cayman S sound. Can’t get more electrifying? Add a sports exhaust system and you’ll hear this engine.
Recovered yet? As if that isn’t enough to overwhelm you with excitement, the Porsche Cayman and Porsche Cayman S come with powerful and efficient technology. Auto Start Stop turns off the engine when the Cayman coupe comes to a stop while all sound and communications systems remain turned on. Electrical engine management optimizes engine performance. Advanced thermal management regulates the temperature in the engine and gearbox to cut friction loss. “But don’t be fooled by the greenie wrapper, the Cayman’s performance is supreme,” writes Car and Driver.
