Porsche The Cayman - Coasting

Coasting

Efficiency is another area in which the performance of the Cayman models has been further improved. The coasting function available with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to prevent deceleration...

Porsche The Cayman - Exhaust system

Exhaust system

In the Cayman models, each cylinder bank has its own stainless-steel exhaust tract. Downstream of their respective rear silencer, the tracts converge into a connecting tube and a single (Cayman) or twin (Cayman S) tailpipe. The stereo Lambda control circuitry controls and monitors each cylinder...

Porsche The Cayman - Resonance intake manifold

Resonance intake manifold

The resonance effect, where the air mass inside the intake manifold is caused to oscillate, is used to improve air induction and, in turn, to optimise the formation of the fuel/air mixture. In the Cayman S, the manifold is also equipped with a switchable resonance valve.

The results are high torque...
