The 2015 Porsche Cayman is a rear mid-engined, rear wheel drive two-seater sports coupe that is based on the Boxster convertible. Currently in its second generation, this model rivals compact sports cars such as the Lotus Evora. Offered here in four variants, the Cayman wears a starting price tag of RM510,000.
Three naturally aspirated six-cylinder horizontally-opposed boxer mills are available for customers to choose from. The entry-level one is a 2.7-litre unit that is good for 275hp at 7,400rpm and 290Nm of torque between 4,500rpm and 6,500rpm, while the other is a 3.4-litre mill that is found in the Cayman S and GTS. It is tuned to produce 325hp/375Nm in the former and 340hp/380Nm in the latter.
The range topping Cayman GT4 features a 3.8-litre engine that is actually a detuned version of the latest-gen Carrera S mill. Power output for the GT4 is rated at 385hp at 7,400rpm and 420Nm of torque, that is available from 4,750rpm to 6,000rpm. This German track weapon is available solely with a six-speed manual transmission, while the other Malaysian-spec Cayman variants are only offered with the carmaker's seven-speed dual-clutch PDK automatic unit.
In terms of performance, the entry level variant is capable of completing the century sprint in 5.6 seconds, while the top of the range GT4 can do the same 1.2 seconds faster. Top speed for all variants are in excess of 250km/h.
