Porsche Introduces Newest Cayman


    Porsche AG is celebrating the world premiere of its latest models – the Cayman and Cayman S –at the ‘2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.’ The third generation of the Cayman has been completely redeveloped. 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. This Cayman is up to 30 kilograms lighter, depending on the specific model and equipment, and it consumes up to 15 per cent less fuel per 100 kilometres than the previous model – despite higher engine and driving performance. The Cayman 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. 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.  The company is also upgrading the Cayman with optional features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which controls the distance to the car ahead in traffic and vehicle speed, as well as a specially developed Burmester sound system. Another optional feature for the Cayman is the keyless entry & drive system.
