Porsche Centre Kuwait reveals new generation Cayman
Porsche Centre Kuwait, Behbehani Motors Company, revealed the new Cayman and Cayman S at an exclusive launch on Monday, 29th of April, at the Arraya Ballroom in Kuwait City.
Around 600 guests and media representatives witnessed the unveiling of the sports coupé, the third generation of the two-seater that has been completely redeveloped.
It is lower and longer, lighter and faster, more efficient and more powerful than ever. A longer wheelbase, wider track and larger wheels enhance the driving performance of the mid-engine sports car to an unparalleled level in its competitive class.
Featuring a new lighter design and powered by a 2.7-litre flat-six cylinder engine, the sports coupé produces 275 horsepower. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, depending on the equipment, and reaches a top speed of 266 km/h.
Its bigger sibling, the Cayman S makes use of a 3.4-litre naturally aspirated flat-six cylinder engine for an output of 325 horsepower. Acceleration time from a standstill to 100 km/h time is 4.7 seconds with a top speed of 283 km/h.
The new Cayman is built for driving through bends like few other sports cars can: the mid-engine sports coupé sets new standards in its class for driving performance with a longer wheelbase, all-round new chassis and lower weight.
Aesthetically, the two-seater stays true to its heritage. It has been redesigned to become even more distinctive. The car’s styling is marked by precise lines and razor-sharp sculpted edges. They emphasise the vehicle’s low, extended silhouette with the windscreen shifted forward and the roofline that reaches far back.
