New Porsche Cayman Debuts at LA Auto Show [VIDEOS]

New Porsche Cayman has been revealed and it really is stunning. The new Cayman is now in its third generation. Based on the new Boxster it follows a similar design, though it is more angular, the front bumper is slightly different and of course the fixed roof gives it a much different overall look as well as a rear spoiler that blends into the rear lights. The luggage area has grown by 15 litres and is now 425 litres.

New Cayman is up to 30 kg lighter, 40 per cent stiffer and comes with more powerful and efficient flat-six engines.

The new 2.7-litre unit produces 275bhp, while the 3.4-litre in the Cayman S produces 325bhp. Both engines can be mated to either a six-speed manual or an optional seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK).

The entry level Cayman goes from 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds with the standard transmission, with PDK it takes 5.6 seconds and the Sport Chrono package brings it down to 5.4 seconds. Top speed is 164 mph with the PDK.

Cayman S does 0-62 mph in 5.0 seconds with the standard transmission, with PDK it comes in 4.9 seconds and in 4.7 seconds with Sport Chrono package. Top speed is 174 mph with PDK.

New Cayman will go on sale March 2013 priced from £39,694 for the standard model, while the Cayman S with 325bhp starts from £48,783.
