The Porsche Cayman concept, first seen at the Frankfurt
Motor Show is essentially a hard top Porsche
Boxster. The concept previewed the production car
which was to arrive shortly after.
Despite being more or less a hard-top Boxster, Porsche
does not push this feature, and clearly separates the
Boxster and Cayman with both price and performance. The
Cayman can not be compared too closely with the 911 either
as the new car is mid-engined, lacks any rear seats and
is smaller in proportion.
The Cayman's overall appearance is not as resolved as
other Porsche models, although the 911 has of course had
time to mature gracefully.
The Cayman's somewhat awkward rear end design may have
a direct relationship with the fact Porsche wants to target
the Cayman at a more masculine audience, strong distinct
rear arches can only help, a mini 911 clone would be too
Although the Porsche Cayman is a production destined concept
and does not display any extreme or unusual features it
is an important concept due to Porsches small line up.
Another hard top concept seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show
which was inspired by a soft top model is the BMW
