About the Porsche Cayman S 987
Slotting neatly into the Porsche lineup between the 911 and Boxster S, the new Cayman S 987 coupe is intended as a pure driver’s car.
The Cayman S 987 is based on the Boxster S (sharing its bonnet, wings, doors and lamps) but with power increased to 291bhp, carefully chosen not to tread on the 911’s toes! Driver involvement is the priority which is reinforced by the Cayman’s superb Nurburgring laps times – faster even than the 997.
2009 saw a mid-term refresh (known as the Gen 2), with a power increase to 320bhp, and some tasty options such as a limited slip diff and a superb 7-speed PDK gearbox.
