When equipped with a manual gearbox, it sprints from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds reaching a top speed of 175mph.
The Cayman comes with an extended wheelbase with shorter overhangs which help improve aerodynamics. At the front, you will notice the new cooling air-intakes with built-in 4-point daytime running lights. This feature distinguishes the new Cayman from the previous generations.
The rear received a few improvements which include: a new aluminum boot-lid, LED brake light, and a new spoiler deploying at a steeper angle. The base model comes with 18-inch wheels, while the Cayman S trim is fitted with 19-inch wheels.
The interior also received several updates to provide a sporty and comfortable driving experience. The stick and the steering wheel have been placed at a close proximity from each other, while all buttons and functions of the on-board computer are spontaneously accessible.
With the increased power, efficiency and speed, the 2013 Porsche Cayman is destined to success. However it will compete against rivals like Audi TTS and Audi TT RS.
