Lighter, Lower, More Agile: World Premiere of the new Porsche Cayman

November 28, 2012

STUTTGART, Germany, November 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Porsche AG is celebrating the world premiere of the new Cayman at the 2012 Los Angeles
Auto Show. The third generation of the Cayman has been completely new developed. It is
lower and longer, lighter and faster, more efficient and more powerful than ever. 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. The new Cayman is up to 30
kg lighter, depending on the specific model and equipment, and it consumes up to 15 per
cent less fuel per 100 km than the previous model – despite higher engine and driving
performance.

The new generation of the two-seat mid-engine sports car is debuting in two classic
Porsche versions: the Cayman and the Cayman S. The base model is powered by a 2.7-liter
flat six-cylinder engine with 275 hp (202 kW). It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 5.4
seconds, depending on the equipment, and reaches a top speed of 266 km/h. Its NEDC fuel
consumption lies between 7.7 l/100 km and 8.2 l/100 km, depending on the selected
transmission. The 3.4-liter engine of the Cayman S produces 325 hp (239 kW); the best
possible acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h is 4.7 seconds with appropriate
features. The Cayman S can reach a top speed of 283 km/h, and its NEDC fuel consumption
value lies between 8.0 l/100 km and 8.8 l/100 km, depending on the selected transmission.

Porsche is also upgrading the Cayman with new optional features. For example, the
sport coupe is now available with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) for the first time, which
controls the distance to the car ahead in traffic and vehicle speed, as well as a
specially developed Burmester sound system. Another new feature for the Cayman is the
keyless Entry & Drive system, which is available as an option.
