2014 Porsche Cayman
2014 Porsche Cayman

New For 2014

The 2014 Porsche Cayman is all-new. It sits on a slightly longer wheelbase, wears attractive new sheetmetal, has a classier interior, and is faster than ever before. It's also more efficient: the base model achieves 30 mpg on the highway.

Vehicle Summary

The 2014 Porsche Cayman is the coupe companion to the excellent Boxster convertible. It shares with the Boxster a mid-engine layout and nearly all of its mechanical components. The latest version of the Cayman, the third-generation, has grown into a more mature, better-looking, more powerful car than its predecessor. It still isn't as fast as some of the powerful coupes you can buy for $50,000, but it is one of the best to drive.


The 2014 Porsche Cayman is one of the best sports cars you can buy for any budget. It debuted in 2005 for people who wanted a Boxster with a fixed roof (necessary for driving on most racetracks). Like the Boxster, the Cayman recently underwent its most significant redesign to date. The biggest improvement may be the styling. Porsche's design team, under the direction of Michael Mauer, has nipped and tucked the Cayman's sheetmetal so that it looks like a sensuous sports car rather than a watered-down 911.

The 2014 Porsche Cayman is also a more convincing luxury car thanks to its new interior. The sweeping center console and tasteful trim lend a premium feel even to the base car -- a good thing since that model commands more than $50,000. Just as important, the improved interior doesn't feel out of place when the Cayman is loaded with options. We've driven Caymans costing more than $95,000 and found them a compelling argument at that price.

As with the latest 911 and Boxster, Porsche has managed to make the Cayman slightly bigger and more powerful but at the same time more efficient. The Cayman S, in particular, has become something of a muscle car: 0 to 60 mph takes as little as 4.4 seconds, according to Porsche. Even so, the Cayman loses a lot of spec-sheet battles. Similarly priced cars such as the Chevrolet Corvette and the Audi RS5 offer more power.

To understand the appeal of the 2014 Porsche Cayman, you need to get out on a winding road or, better still, a racetrack. The mid-engine layout offers wonderful handling balance, such that the car seems to dance through corners. The steering is precise and perfectly weighted. The flat-six engine responds precisely to your right foot as only a normally aspirated engine can, producing a thrilling wail as it climbs toward its peak power (7400 rpm for both the base and S models). That's true, we should add, regardless of whether you opt for the six-speed manual or the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. If we have to complain about something, we'd say the new electric power steering doesn't communicate as well as the old hydraulic rack, especially at lower speeds. Overall, though, the Cayman is one of those special cars that reminds us why we like driving.

The Cayman's biggest competition probably comes from the other sports cars in the Porsche showroom. The Boxster performs just as well, can lower its top, and costs less. For a bit more money, the 911 offers more power and two (small) rear seats. That said, the Cayman, more than ever before, has carved out its own niche.

You'll like:

  • Cars don't handle better than this
  • Premium cabin
  • Attractive exterior

You won't like:

  • Good steering not perfect as it used to be
  • Gets expensive, quickly
  • The Boxster is cheaper

Porsche Cayman GT4 Spied 03 Front Three Quarter
We’ve had our first sighting of the rumored Porsche Cayman GT4, less than a week after news emerged of the car’s development. Befitting of its surely high level of performance, the Porsche Cayman GT4 prototype was spotted by our spy photographers at the Nürburgring racetrack in Germany.
2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S Rear Right Side View 2
We’re not even halfway through 2014, and the latest news from Motor Trend has us rushing to mark our calendars for 2017. Senior features editor Jonny Lieberman reports that in three years’ time there will be 700-plus-hp plug-in hybrid versions of the 911 Turbo S and Panamera Turbo S, not to mention a high-powered Cayman GT4 with a Boxster GT4 twin dubbed the RS Spyder.
2015 Porsche Cayman GTS Side View On Track
The Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman creep ever closer to the performance potential of the vaunted 911 with the addition of new GTS models. The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS boast more power, additional standard equipment, and a different style than the Boxster S and Cayman S on which they are based.Porsche already offers GTS versions of the Cayenne SUV and the Panamera sedan.
2013 Porsche Boxster Three Quarters View 13
The Porsche Boxster and Cayman sports cars will soon join the Panamera sedan and Cayenne SUV in offering an upgraded GTS model, according to a report from Autocar. These performance-oriented versions will be positioned slightly above the Porsche Boxster S and Cayman S models, with a small power boost and some exterior upgrades.
2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Vs 2014 Porsche Cayman Front Left View
With a rigid, carbon-fiber tub in the best Ferrari tradition, the Alfa Romeo 4C's trump card is a waiflike curb weight of roughly 2500 pounds. But there is much more to Alfa's new mid-engine entry, like neck-snapping Brembo brakes, ultrasticky Pirelli PZero rubber, and unassisted and unfiltered steering. Power is courtesy of a 237-hp, 1742-cc turbocharged four-cylinder engine that tattoos your eardrums with lust and desire. The banzai Italian, limited to 3500 units a year, can even outsprint the much more expensive Porsche 911 Carrera to 62 mph.
