New Porsche Cayman - Handle it


What is it?

Porsche Cayman

So what’s new?

What you see before you is the third-generation Porsche Cayman. This is lighter, longer and sits lower than the outgoing version. It looks sharp, with precise lines and sculpted edges, and its sporty intentions are complemented by the lowered profile. Conspicuous external features are the new beltline, which rises from the headlamps and sweeps through to the rear fenders. The front bumper has prominent air intakes with integrated daytime running light clusters. At its curvaceous rear is a thin blade-like rear spoiler, which is mounted directly to the rear lid. It comes with a

275 bhp 2.7-litre flat-six engine that’s mated to a six-speed manual transmission that propels this Porker to 100 kph in 5.4 seconds. There’s also the option of a seven-speed PDK gearbox which shaves off 0.1secs off the manual ‘box’s time. There’s also an optional Sport Chrono package which has settings like ‘aggressive’ and ‘relaxed’ depending on your mood. On its way to India later in the year.
