24th May 2006.

Few weeks after the new Cayman S won the “World Performance Car” title for 2006, by a jury of 46 international trade journalists at the New York International Auto Show last months, Porsche has just announced the imminent launch of its brother, the Cayman.

Cayman will represent the entry version to the model, with a basic price of 40,900 euros (47,647 euros in Germany, including sales tax and country-specific requirements).

Cayman will have some 50 bhp less than the 295-bhp Cayman S.

Based on the Boxster series, the 2-seater Cayman mid-engine sports coupé model extends the Porsche product range. Launched last November to fill the gap between the Boxter and the 911 Carrera, the Cayman S costs in Germany 58,529 Euros, including sales tax and country-specific requirements.

The market launch of the Cayman will take place on July 29, 2006 in Europe and the USA (49,400 dollars in the USA before tax).

The new Cayman version is powered by a six-cylinder boxer engine with a capacity of 2.7 litres (3.4 litres for the Cayman S) and developing an output of 245bhp (180 kW, compared to 295 bhp, 217 KW for the Cayman S). It has a top speed of 258 kilometres per hour (275 km/h for the Cayman S).

Porsche Cayman interior standard features include an air-conditioning system, a radio/CD player, seat covers in Alcantara leather, black-faced instrument dials and door entry trims with the Cayman logo.

With manual transmission, the new Cayman accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds (5.4 seconds for the Cayman S). According to European standards, it consumes on average 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres (10.6 litres for the manual Cayman S, and 11.0 for the automatic).

Thanks to the Porsche VarioCam Plus system the Cayman torque reaches 273 Newton meters between 4,600 and 6,000 revs (Cayman S: 340 Nm from 4400 to 6000 rpm).

Power is transmitted via a five-speed manual transmission with short, precise shifting travel.

A six-speed manual transmission in conjunction with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system is also available on request.

Because of the mid-engine concept, the Cayman has two trunk compartments with a combined volume of 410 litres, just like the Cayman S.

As a third variant, Porsche offers its customers the Tiptronic S five-speed automatic transmission, which has rocker switches in the steering-wheel spokes for sporty gear shifting.

The Cayman coasts along on 17-inch light-alloy wheels with five double spokes. 205/55 tires are fitted as standard onto 6.5-inch wide wheel rims at the front; the combination at the rear is 235/50 tires on 8-inch rims.

To enhance driving dynamics and active safety, the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system is fitted as standard, while the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system is available as an optional extra. The latter is capable of lowering the body by ten millimetres, and automatically adapts the shock-absorber system to each particular driving situation. The driver can choose between the “normal” and “sport” programs by pressing a button on the centre console.

Other special features of the Cayman are black brake callipers, black front-spoiler lips, a titanium-coloured logo at the rear and also a trapezoidal tailpipe.

Interior standard features include an air-conditioning system, a radio/CD player, seat covers in Alcantara leather, black-faced instrument dials (white in the Cayman S) and door entry trims with the Cayman logo.

Because of the mid-engine concept, the Cayman has two trunk compartments with a combined volume of 410 litres, just like the Cayman S.

In addition to two full-size airbags for head-on collisions, the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP), which features a chest and head airbag on each side of the vehicle, provides its protection in side-on collisions.
