PDK double clutch RWD
(with PDK gearbox)
The redesigned 2010 Porsche Cayman and Cayman S were both trotted
out as pre-production models at the 2008 LA Auto Show.
The highlight is the new, flat-six ‘boxer’ engines, developed
to incorporate new technical features from the ground up, providing
not only more power, but also significantly greater fuel efficiency.
A further improvement of both fuel economy and performance is
guaranteed by the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the
new double-clutch gearbox now available as an option on both
the Cayman and Cayman S.
The 3.4-litre flat-six engine in the Porsche Cayman S now features
Direct Fuel Injection, and delivers 320 bhp (235 kW), up by
a healthy 25 bhp over the previous model.
The Cayman S, equipped with the PDK transmission and Launch
Control (featured in the optional Sports Chrono Package Plus)
accelerates from 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.9 seconds.
Originally launched in 2005, the characteristic silhouette of
the Porsche Cayman has remained fresh and contemporary.
As is Porsche tradition, the styling of the 2010 Cayman has
evolved subtly. However, it is distinguishable from outside
through its newly-designed nose and tail. The new halogen headlights
with their integrated direction indicators are reminiscent of
the lights on the Carrera GT, and the new LED rear lights tapering
to the outside are integrated elegantly in the remodeled bodywork.
Its distinctive coupé lines are combined with a long wheelbase
and a rear aspect that slopes gently downwards. From the rear,
the Cayman is defined by a large, opening rear lid, powerfully
sweeping wheel arches and an automatically extending spoiler.
The rear lid opens upwards to provide access to the 260 litre
luggage compartment. This, in conjunction with the 150 litre
capacity luggage compartment in the nose, plus numerous additional
storage compartments, ensures that the Cayman has functionality
to go along with its performance.
