2012 Porsche Cayman
2012 Porsche Cayman
The Cayman, depending on how you view it, is either a cynical way to make more money off the Porsche Boxster or the best sports car in the world. We tend to lean toward the latter. Yes, Porsche charges nearly $4000 more for the Cayman than it does for the Boxster, and yes, that $52,850 doesn't buy you nearly as much horsepower as you can get in a Chevrolet Corvette or a Nissan 370Z. But the Cayman, which is twice as stiff as the very rigid Boxster, makes up for its spec-sheet shortcomings with unparalleled balance and reflexes. It helps that the roof traps the wail of the boxer engine right behind your ears. The Cayman is not one of those cars that will allow you to pretend you're a great driver, though--it does exactly what you tell it to, for better or for worse. For those who seek more than the base model's 265 hp, there's the 320-hp Cayman S and, new for this year, the 330-hp Cayman S Black Edition. The hottest variant remains the Cayman R, which combines a hopped-up 3.4-liter flat six with a stiffer suspension. Like the Boxster Spyder, it spares no effort in shedding weight. There's no radio or air-conditioning, the door skins are made of aluminum, the battery is a compact lithium-ion unit, and the door pulls are canvas. The replacement for the five-year-old Cayman is not far off and will, we presume, be faster and more efficient (and possibly will offer a four-cylinder engine). For now, though, this is as good as it gets.
2014 Jaguar XFR S Front Three Quarter
Thoughts about November often involve images of falling leaves, family meals over turkey, and crisp autumn weather. However, if you're a car enthusiast November also marks the first North American auto show of the season in Los Angeles, California. Here are our five favorite new cars from the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show to rip us all out of our tryptophan-induced lulls.
2013 Porsche Cayman Front Three Quarter
Well, well, well, what do we have here? Could it be the all-new 2013 Porsche Cayman? Why, in fact, it does seem to be, making an appearance prior to its Los Angeles Auto Show debut later this month. We already know almost all there is to know about the 2013 Cayman. Since it is based off of the Porsche Boxster, expect the Cayman to share all of the roadster's mechanicals. That means the base Cayman will be powered by a 2.7-liter flat-six good for 265 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque. There will, of course, also be a hotter Cayman S that will use the same 315-hp, 266-lb-ft 3.4-liter flat-six from the Boxster S. Six-speed manual and PDK dual-clutch transmissions will send power rearward for both Cayman models, of course. Because of the Cayman's very close relation to the Boxster – it's essentially just a coupe version of the roadster – we have a pretty good idea how it will look, and these Instagram shots confirm our suspicions. The Cayman's greenhouse will look almost identical to the outgoing car, complete with the same upsweep at the C-pillar; however, as we know from the Boxster, the new Cayman will be slightly longer than the first-generation car. A new front end will incorporated stacked headlights with thin LED running lights and large intakes. The same fantastic taillight-integrated spoiler from the Boxster makes the jump to the Cayman, although here it looks to be integrated to the bottom of the hatchback liftgate. The profile is dominated by a sharp character line below the door handles, which sweeps back into new, enlarged cooling ducts. From these shots, we can see that the Cayman will be every bit as stunning as its drop-top sister, a car that we named 2013 Automobile Magazine Design of the Year. Expect Porsche to reveal more information when the car debuts on Wednesday, November 28 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Source: Instagram
2013 Porsche Cayman Spied AMAG
Whether you love or hate the changes revealed in the new 2013 Porsche Boxster, expect much of what you see to migrate over to the next-gen Cayman. In typical Porsche fashion, the new coupe will be an evolutionary transformation, especially from the side, which, aside from the door-mounted side-view mirror, appears identical to the current-gen model. The front end should get the 2013 Boxster’s more narrow headlights, while the tail is expected to get the same dramatic spoiler and taillight design.
2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Rear Side
Porsche Works driver Patrick Long and Rolex Grand-Am champ Leh Keen gear up for another day at the office to show the 2012 911 Carrera S in all its glory as they play chase around the Laguna Seca raceway.
Porsche Cayman R Vs Lotus Evora S Front Side View
A contemporary Lotus will never win a comparison test that values practicality. The sills are too wide, the pedal box is too cramped, and the switch gear is too finicky for daily use. So even though the Evora is the most livable model in Lotus's narrow lineup, it's only a daily driver if your commute consists of descending the stairs from the tower to pit lane. Porsche's Cayman, by almost every measure, is a much more accommodating everyday sports car.
