2014 Porsche Cayman


The all-new 2014 Porsche Cayman Mk3 Coupe was unveiled today at the Los Angeles Auto Show.  As expected, the new Cayman coupe is virtually identical to the Boxter roadster (because that’s what it’s based on) released earlier this year; and that’s a good thing.

The 2014 Cayman coupe is a lot more elegant than the car it replaces and the roof doesn’t look like an afterthought, it goes well with the rest of the car.  According to the German car maker, the new Cayman is a 3rd generation car; I guess they considered the minor facelift they gave the Cayman a few years ago, the 2nd generation.  We don’t really care what generation it’s called, all we care about is the specs, which can be found below.

The 2014 Porsche Cayman coupe is powered by a 2.7 liter 6-cylinder boxer engine (replacing the 2.9 liter unit) producing 275 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 213 pound-feet (289 Nm) of torque at 4,500 rpm.  The 2014 Cayman S is powered by a 3.4 liter 6-cylinder boxer engine producing 325 HP at 7,400 rpm and 272 pound-feet (369 Nm) of torque at 4,500 rpm.

The base Cayman coupe equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission accelerates to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.7 seconds, cars equipped with the 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission get to 62 mph in 5.6 seconds, and 5.4 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package.  The Cayman S reaches 62 mph in 5.0 seconds with the 6-speed manual transmission, 4.9 seconds with the PDK transmission, and 4.7 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package.

The interior has also been upgraded, it’s now inline with the rest of the Porsche interior which have been a huge step forward over most of the previous offerings from Porsche.
The new Porsche Cayman coupe is 66 pounds (30 kg) lighter, has a 40% stiffer body, and is 15% more fuel efficient than the car it replaces.  The car is also lower and longer than its predecessor.  The Cayman was already a fun car to drive; with lighter weight, lower center of gravity, and more power, it’ll make for a hell of a fun ride.

The 2014 Porsche Cayman coupe will be available in U.S. showrooms in early 2013 with a starting price of $52,600 for the base model and $63,800 for the Cayman S.  Prices will be considerably higher in European markets.
