Both Cayman models are equipped with brand new engine developments, but have retained the familiar layout: six horizontally opposed cylinders.
The 2.9-litre engine of the Cayman delivers 195 kW (265 hp) at an engine speed of 7,200 rpm. The maximum torque of 300 Nm is achieved between 4,400 and 6,000 rpm.
The engine of the Cayman S has a 3.4-litre capacity and, for the first time, direct fuel injection (DFI). Power output is 235 kW (320 hp) at 7,200 rpm. Maximum torque: 370 Nm at 4,750 rpm.
Each of the engines convinces with its outstanding performance figures, extremely smooth running, optimised gas cycles and tremendous cornering agility, with fuel consumption and CO2 emissions reduced by up to 15% and 16%, depending on the model.*
All of this is achieved by DFI (in the Cayman S), a lightweight construction and a host of other engineering advancements, e.g. VarioCam Plus. This system increases torque in the lower engine speed range and power output in the upper engine speed range. Injection and ignition are controlled by the engine electronics. The driver regulates engine power – and of course sound – using the extremely sensitive electronic accelerator pedal.
