Fuel consumption* Cayman: Urban in l/100 km (mpg) 12.2 (23.2)-10.6 (26.6); Extra urban in l/100 km (mpg) 6.9 (40.9)-5.9 (47.9); Combined in l/100 km (mpg) 8.8 (32.1)-7.7 (36.7); CO2 emissions in g/km 206-180.
It’s always worth taking the direct route: from stimulus to response, from resting pulse to pounding heart, from impulse to endorphin rush – not least when the distance to travel is less than half a metre.
The Cayman is equipped with a 2.7-litre boxer engine and the Cayman S is driven by a 3.4-litre variant, both of which are tuned for sporty driving. Accelerator pedal inputs are translated directly into propulsion. Maximum torque is available over a broad engine speed range.
Both engines feature direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus. Power is transmitted to the wheels by a smooth 6-speed manual gearbox or the optional 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
Exemplary efficiency is achieved by means of sophisticated technologies. As standard, these include the auto start/stop function, electromechanical power steering, electrical system recuperation and intelligent thermal management. The result, depending on the equipment variant, is a 16% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with the previous model.
Thanks to our principles of intelligent lightweight construction, we have succeeded in making the body stiffer and simultan-eously lighter. The chassis has been completely revised. For enhanced dynamic performance and increased driving stability when the car is pushed to the limit, both models are equipped with Porsche Stability Management (PSM). Enhanced Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is available as an option and includes a ride height reduction of 10 mm. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with rear differential lock for increased agility and traction in corners is also available on request.
The optional Sport Chrono Package makes the response and handling characteristics of the new Cayman even sportier. The package also includes dynamic gearbox mounts, which make a perceptible contribution to handling stability in fast corners whilst ensuring a high degree of ride comfort.
Several years of development work and countless drafts later, our engineers have realised their goal: the direct link between action and reaction. Experience the result in the Cayman, and let your pulse rate be the measure of success.
