Porsche Launch New Cayman S
Like the Boxster, the new Cayman has a longer wheelbase, but is lighter than the outgoing model, and it’s also more powerful. There are two versions: The base Cayman with its 2.7-liter flat-six producing 275 hp—that’s 10 more than its predecessor—and 214 lb-ft of torque. Above that, Porsche presents the Cayman S, powered by a 3.4-liter flat-six that makes 325 hp and 273 lb-ft from. Both direct-injected engines have an aluminum block and aluminum cylinder heads; they sport four overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder. Porsche offers a six-speed manual transmission and an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
