Inner strength, the will to advance and a clear position. These are important prerequisites for the creation of any sports car, and we also found them to be precisely the right requirements for this drivetrain.
That is why the Cayman models are equipped with a compact, mid-mounted boxer engine...Learn more
The intelligent thermal management system in the Cayman models regulates the temperature in the engine and gearbox to reduce friction losses that occur during the warm-up phase.
Thanks to the purposeful control of heat flow and on-demand, gradual activation of the various cooling...Learn more
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...Learn more
The Cayman models are equipped as standard with the six-speed manual gearbox. Gearshifts are smooth, precise and optimally adapted to the respective engine map. Shift throws are short and the gear lever is easy to operate, providing a truly engaging driving experience. The upshift indicator located...Learn more
Of course, you could let us take care of the gearshift strategy so that you can devote all your attention to your cornering strategy.
Available as an option is the completely retuned 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), featuring both manual and automatic modes. The advantages are perceptible....Learn more
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...Learn more
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 optimize 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...Learn more
Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) is featured as standard in both Cayman models. Multi-hole injectors deliver fuel directly into the combustion chamber with millisecond precision. The injection pattern has been optimized for torque, power output, fuel consumption and emissions. Combustion is even more...Learn more
VarioCam Plus is a two-in-one engine concept for adjusting the intake camshafts and switching the lift of the intake valves.
The system first differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum performance. The electronic engine management...Learn more
Integrated dry-sump lubrication ensures a reliable supply of oil even when a sporty driving style is adopted and the vehicle is experiencing powerful lateral acceleration. It also has additional cooling functions.
The oil tank is located in the engine, thereby eliminating the need for an external...Learn more
