on Porsche’s acclaimed two-seat roadster, the Boxster, the Cayman’s
fixed-roof design adds rigidity that enhances the mid-engine
architecture’s dynamic balance and capabilities.
To better suit this enhanced potential, engineers built an even
more powerful horizontally opposed “boxer” engine for the Cayman
S. The 3.4-liter engine punches out 295 horsepower (SAE). With
the Cayman S enclosed in a sleek and aerodynamic body, the engine
propels the newest Porsche from a standing start to 60 miles
per hour (96 km/h) in just 5.1 seconds. The car eclipses the
quarter-mile sprint in 13.6 seconds and achieves a top speed
on the test track of nearly 171 mph (275 km/h).
In testing around Germany’s famed Nurburgring racing circuit,
the Cayman S turned laps faster than the Boxster S, but slower
than its big brother, the acclaimed Porsche 911 Carrera.
