Porsche is celebrating the world premiere of the new Cayman at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. The third generation of the Cayman, which is making its appearance before an international audience at the Convention Center, has been re-engineered from the ground up - it is lower, longer, lighter, faster, more efficient, and more powerful than ever. The two-seat sport coupe will be launched on the market in two classic Porsche versions: Cayman and Cayman S. A longer wheelbase, wider track and larger wheels enhance the driving performance of the mid-engine sports car to a level without equal in its competitive class.
Delivering more power with even better fuel economy than before, any of two highly efficient flat-six cylinder engines is mounted just in front of the rear axle, surrounded by its lightweight aluminium and steel body. The Cayman is powered by a 2.7-litre engine with 275 hp; with the Sport Chrono package it accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, and its NEDC fuel consumption - with the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) - is just 7.7 litres per 100 km. The 3.4-litre engine in the Cayman S produces 325 hp; with PDK and the Sport Chrono package it sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption of 8 l/100 km.
The new Cayman will arrive at Canadian dealerships in Spring 2013 starting at $59,900 for the Cayman and $72,900 for the Cayman S.
