Character, profile and a clear point of view. These values have been encoded in the Cayman genes since the very beginning. And it certainly shows.
The front is dominated by the prominent wings for which Porsche is renowned and features succinctly styled headlights inspired by the Porsche racing heritage of the 1960s and 1970s. With its large and dynamic air intakes, the front end reinforces the car’s air of power and aggression. The front light units integrated in the air intakes are a classic feature of Cayman styling and incorporate LED daytime running lights and position lights for active safety.
The silhouette is sleek, the wheelbase long, the wheels large – up to 20 inches if you like. The narrow side windows together with the forward-shifted windscreen and the roofline extending far into the rear give added emphasis to the Cayman’s personality. As does the design of the doors. With its dynamic contouring, it improves airflow to the side air intakes for the purpose of cooling and supplying oxygen to the boxer engine.
In conjunction with the wide track, the rear gives the impression of a sculpted and honed physique. The rear wing is more than a stunning eye-catcher. It deploys automatically at 120 km/h. Its effective aerodynamic active surface is large and the amount of lift low. Retracted, the separation edge of the rear wing makes a seamless transition to the LED taillights. The integrated direction indicators are slender and in line with the wing. The broad brake light is an integral feature of the large rear screen.
The rear apron with centrally framed stainless-steel tailpipe (dual tube on the Cayman S and Cayman GTS) adds the powerful finishing touch.
Where the Cayman models want to go is clear at first glance. Every line and every technical detail are focused in one direction: forwards. Every aspect tells a story – of character and insatiable forward thrust.
