Benefits of Driving a 2012 Porsche Cayman Coupe

The Cayman may not be the top of the performance ladder. Porsche itself makes much more powerful cars, but with a base price of $52,000, the Cayman's mid-engine design and powerful 2.9L 6-cylinder means it may be the best performance bargain out there from one of the best performance automakers out there.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the Cayman gets a new very limited-edition high-performance Black Edition that is light-weight, slightly more powerful and top-to-bottom black-trimmed.

Model Strengths

  • Blistering, track-ready performance
  • excellent handling
  • lavish interior appointments
  • high-tech safety and convenience options

Model Review

The 2012 Porsche Cayman is powered by a 265-horsepower, 2.9L horizontally opposed 'flat' 6-cylinder engine while the Cayman S gets a 320-horsepower, 3.4L flat six. Both models of this mid-engine sports car now have a 6-speed manual gearbox standard, with a 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) automated dual-clutch transmission optional.
