Porsche Cayman S

Porsche developed the 2014 Cayman S and it is now offering some very spicy insights for the ones interested in someday owning one of these bad boys. It seems that the model has a lot of the styling tweaks first displayed on the coupe version of the model, the Boxster. It has more mechanical changes, more power, less weight and better efficiency in comparison to its predecessor. The wheelbase of the 2914 models was stretched by almost 2.4 inches and the front track was widened by 1.6 inches.

At the front, the new Porsche Cayman S has larger front air inlets surrounded by black plastic strakes instead of the standard body color treatment. The Boxster fans will be able to recognize the integrated lip spoiler stretching from tail lamp across the rear deck. The cabin of the 2014 model has remained untouched. The drivers will see the addition of new sport seats. The standard trim serves up a set of manually adjustable buckets with Alcantara inserts. Especially for the Europeans, the carmaker offers as optional a set of carbon fiber and fixed-back race buckets. The cabin also features redesigned air vents and the option sheet includes 12-speaker Burmester sound system.

The engineers have made the base Cayman twice as rigid as the Boxster and substantially stiffer than the 911 for example, making it one of the most rigid sports car chassis in the world. The 2014 Porsche Cayman S receives power from a 3.4-liter flat-six engine capable of generating 325 horsepower and 272 lb. ft. of torque. To transfer the output to the wheels, the specialists have offered a 6-speed transmission as standard, but as optional it can also get the PDK dual-clutch 7-speed transmission. All this output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and to reach a top speed of 175 mph.
