The Porsche Cayman is a rear mid-engined, rear wheel drive 2-seat sports car produced by Porsche AG of Germany. First launched in the 2006 model year, the Cayman is a coupé derived from Porsche's second and third generation Boxster roadster. Like the Boxster, most Caymans were assembled in Finland for Porsche by Valmet Automotive (the rest were assembled in Zuffenhausen, Stuttgart, Germany). Porsche's Deputy Chairman, Holger P. Haerter stated that the contract with Valmet Automotive will end in 2012, and the Cayman's production was to be outsourced to Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.[2] However, as Volkswagen assumed control of Porsche AG, production of Caymans and Boxsters after 2012 began in the former Karmann plant in Osnabrück, Germany, which is now owned by Volkswagen and also used for production of the 2012 Golf (Mk6) convertible.[3]


2006 Porsche Cayman S
2006 Porsche Cayman S

Cayman is an alternative spelling of caiman, a reptile in the same family as the alligator. The car is not named after the Cayman Islands; rather the islands also derive their name from the caiman. When the first Caymans arrived at dealerships for sale, the automaker adopted four caimans at Stuttgart's Wilhelma Zoo.[4]

Porsche brought an infringement lawsuit in 2009 against Crocs, the maker of the popular rubber shoes. At issue was the footwear company's clog name also called Cayman. An injunction was granted against Crocs Europe, a division of the Longmont, Colorado-based shoe company preventing their use in Germany of the Cayman name.[5]

First generation (987C)[edit]

After two years of development, the first model of the coupé to be released was the Cayman S (type 987120). Photographs and technical details were released in May 2005, but the public unveiling took place at the September Frankfurt Motor Show. The S suffix (for Sport[6] or Special[7]) indicated that this was a higher performance version of a then unreleased normal model. That model, the Cayman (987110), went on sale in July 2006. A motorsport-tuned model, the Cayman RS, is rumored to have been tested at the Nürburgring that same year.[8]

The Cayman coupé (project 987c) and the second generation Boxster roadster (project 987) shared the same mid-engined platform and many components, including the front fenders and trunk lid, side doors, headlights, taillights, and forward portion of the interior. The design of the Cayman's body incorporates styling cues from classic Porsches; 356/1, the 550 Coupé and the 904 Coupé.[9][10] Unlike the Boxster, the Cayman has a hatchback for access to luggage areas on top of and in the back of the engine cover. The entire aft portion of the Cayman is made from stainless steel. The suspension design is fundamentally the same as that of the Boxster with revised settings due to the stiffer chassis with the car's fixed roof.

The 3.4 litre flat-6 boxer engine (M97.21) in the first generation Cayman S was derived from the 3.2 litre (M96.26) that was used in the Boxster S, with cylinder heads from the Porsche 997 S's 3.8 litre motor (M97.01), which have the VarioCam Plus inlet valve timing and lift system. A less powerful but more fuel efficient version, the 2.7 litre M97.20, powered the base model. The use of these engines exclusively in Caymans ended in MY 2007 when Porsche upgraded the Boxster (987310) and Boxster S (987320).[11]

A 5-speed manual transaxle is standard on the Cayman (G87.01), while a 6-speed manual (Getrag 466) is the default for the S (G87.21) and an option on the base (A87.20). An electronically controlled 5-speed automatic transaxle (Tiptronic) was also available on the S (A87.21) and the non-S version (A87.02) (The 2009 models replaced this option with a seven-speed "PDK", Porsche's dual-clutch robotic manual transmission). Other options include active shock absorbers (ThyssenKrupp Bilstein GmbH's DampTronic, rebadged as PASM by Porsche), ceramic disc brakes (PCCB), xenon headlights (Hella's Bi-Xenon) and an electronically controlled sport mode (Sport Chrono Package).

The first generation Cayman ceased production in November 2011.[12]

Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1[edit]

The Porsche Design Edition 1 is a Cayman S model designed by Porsche Design, commemorating the 35th anniversary of Porsche Design. The all black car has a black leather interior on the seats, dashboard, and door trim, as well as black Alcantara steering wheel, gear lever, handbrake grip, and headliner. The DE1 also is fitted standard with the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), 19-inch 911 (997) Turbo wheels with 235/35 ZR 19 front and 265/35 ZR 19 rear tires, Porsche Design script on the instrument dials, stainless steel entry plate engraved with "Porsche Design Edition 1", all-red rear taillights, custom vinyl exterior black-on-black graphics, and a numbered plaque on the glovebox cover. As with all PASM-equipped cars, the body is lowered by 10 mm (0.4 in). Standard equipment includes a briefcase containing the Flat Six Chronograph, a pocket knife, a pair of sunglasses, a pen, and a key ring – all in black, even the knife blade.

A total of 777 vehicles were produced as 2008 models. It went on sale on November 2007 in Germany, followed by the U.S. in January 2008

Cayman S Sport[edit]

Porsche also announced the production of a limited edition Cayman S Sport, which was available in October 2008 as a 2009 model.[13] This version of the Cayman S includes PSE (Porsche Sports Exhaust), PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), and Sport Chrono. The power is raised from 295 PS (217 kW) at 6250 rpm to 303 PS (223 kW) at 6250 rpm. The Cayman S Sport is the first Cayman to break 300 bhp from the factory.

The Cayman S Sport comes in Bright Orange and Signal Green (from the 911 GT3 RS), as well as Carrera White, Speed Yellow, Guards Red, Black, and Arctic Silver. The Cayman S Sport also features short shifter, sports seats, deviated color seatbelts, "Cayman S" striping on the door sides, black Porsche Design 19-inch wheels, various gloss black interior trims, gloss black side mirrors, stainless steel door sills with "Cayman S Sport" script, 5mm wheel spacers, and Alcantara steering wheel and shift knob from the 997 911 GT3 RS. The instrumentation does not include a hood. The body is lowered by 1 cm due to its PASM feature. A total of 700 were made.

The performance of the Cayman S approaches that of Porsche's flagship sports car. Rally racing driver Walter Röhrl lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in a Cayman S equipped with optional 19" wheels, PCCB, and PASM[18] in a time of 8 minutes, 11 seconds.[19][20] The time for a standard Cayman S, as published by the manufacturer, was 8 minutes, 20 seconds.[21] In contrast, Röhrl recorded 8 minutes, 15 seconds in a 911 Carrera.[22][23]

Side view of the Porsche Cayman S

A Cayman prepared and run by private team of Jürgen and Uwe Alzen finished fourth overall (of 220 entrants) in the 2007 Nürburgring 24 Hour race, ahead of two flagship Porsche 997 GT3 RSR's, a 997 GT3 Cup, and a 996 GT3 Cup.[24] Another two privateer Caymans, entered by CSR and MSpeed, finished 22nd and 117th overall, respectively. Porsche disclaims support for the Cayman teams, while supporting some or all of the 997 teams.[25]

Starting with the 2009 model, a limited slip differential was available as an option.[26] The base Cayman has received an engine upgrade to 2.9 L (265 bhp (198 kW; 269 PS)), and the Cayman S a 3.4 L (320 bhp (239 kW; 324 PS)). The factory tuned 2008 Cayman S Sport with its special exhaust system produces 303 bhp (226 kW; 307 PS) from its 3.4 L engine.[27]

First generation (facelift - 987C gen II)[edit]

A face-lifted version of the Porsche Cayman was introduced on 21 February 2009. The standard Cayman engine's displacement was increased from 2.7 L to 2.9 L, giving a 20 hp (15 kW) increase to 265 hp (198 kW), while the Cayman S gained direct injection and a 25 hp (19 kW) increase to 320 hp (239 kW). The new engines no longer had the Intermediate Shaft, which proved to be a weak link in pre-2009 engines, the new engine nomenclature is 9A1. Both the Cayman and Cayman S maintained a 10 hp (7 kW) power advantage over their roadster sibling, the Boxster. Each has its own design for the front bumper. The front signal lamps are designed differently: while both use LED signal lamps, the Cayman’s are arranged like the face of dice{[31]} while the Boxster gets a horizontal row of 4 LEDs. The Porsche Tiptronic S automatic gearbox was replaced by the 7-speed PDK dual clutch transmission for the new model. The PDK outperforms the manual transmission with a 0-60 mph time of 5.1 seconds versus 5.2 seconds for the manual. The PDK with the sport button option lowers the 0-60 mph time to 4.9 seconds.[32] Also a limited slip differential is now a factory option.[33]

Cayman R[edit]

2011 Porsche Cayman 3.4 R

The Cayman R was introduced in 2011, and is based on a 2009 Cayman S. It features the Porsche OEM aerokit that was first introduced in 2007 as a factory option, 19 inch lightweight wheels inherited from the Boxster Spyder, lighter aluminium doors from 997 911 GT3, lighter fiberglass bucket seats with carbon fiber backing from the 997 911 GT2, and with the removal of the radio, storage compartments, air-conditioning, and door handles, the Cayman R weighs in at 54.8 kilograms (121 lb) less than a Cayman S. The Cayman R also received various cosmetic changes similar to ones seen on the earlier Cayman S Sport, such decals on the doors, instrument cover delete, gloss black painted mirrors, black model designation emblem on the trunk, as well as black painted wheels.

With the new passive sports suspensions, the Cayman R was 10 mm (0.4 in) lower than a Cayman S equipped with PASM, or 20 mm (0.8 in) lower than one equipped with standard passive suspension. The engine was a 3.4-litre flat six Direct Fuel Injection DFI boxer engine that produced 330 hp (246 kW). The standard Cayman R can achieve 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds, and with the optional 7-speed PDK dual clutch transmission and the Sport Chrono package, it can achieve 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. The Cayman R with the manual transmission can reach the top speed of 175 mph (282 km/h), and 174 mph (280 km/h) with the PDK.[34]

The Cayman R made its world debut at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show on 17 November 2010.

Second generation (981C)[edit]

2013 Porsche Cayman 2.7 PDK (981C)

The second generation Cayman was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The production 981 was released as a 2014 model in the spring of 2013. The new car was available in both standard Cayman with a 2.7 L engine, and as Cayman S with a 3.4 L engine. Both versions are available with either a 6-speed manual or a dual-clutch 7-speed PDK transmission.

The 981 features upgrades including a new body, a longer wheelbase, a wider front track, and a redesigned interior that matches the firm's contemporary 911 models.

The new model gained acclaim in the motoring press as one of the best handling sports cars at any price, due to its-mid engine layout and driving dynamics. The Cayman S benefits from the same engine and running gear as Porsche's latest 3.4 L version of the 911. [38][39][40][41]

Cayman GTS[edit]

2015 Porsche Cayman GTS

The Cayman GTS was introduced in 2014, and is based on the current Cayman. It features a marginally more powerful engine, a new body kit, new 20-inch Carrera S alloys, new Bi-Xenon headlights, and new sports exhaust system. The Cayman GTS is longer than the Cayman and the Cayman S by 1.2 inches due to its bumper, and the new passive sport suspension allows the Cayman GTS to have a 20mm lower ride height compared to a car equipped with standard passive suspension or 10mm compared to one equipped with PASM. The engine produces 340 hp, and can achieve a 0-62 mph(or 100kph) in 4.9 seconds with the manual transmission, 4.7 seconds with PDK and 4.5 seconds with PDK and Sport Plus mode, which is activated via the now standard Sports Chrono Package. The Cayman GTS weighs 1345kg with the manual transmission can reach a top speed of 177 mph (285 kph) while the Cayman GTS with PDK can reach 175 mph (283 kph) and weighs 1375kg. The configuration changes made over a standard Cayman S resemble closely what Porsche did to its predecessors through Cayman S Sport and Cayman R in the 987 generation vehicles. [42] [43]

Cayman GT4[edit]

2016 Porsche Cayman GT4

In 2015, the Cayman GT4 was introduced, based on the current Cayman (981C), using a revised and slightly de-tuned version of the 3.8-liter flat-six engine from the 911 (991) Carrera S. The GT4 is available only with a 6-speed manual transmission and weighs 1340kg. It has a vented front bumper to improve cooling for the additional radiator, with a lower lip as well as a fixed rear wing for providing downforce. Compared to the standard Cayman, it features a 30mm lower ride height, upgraded brakes from the 991 GT3, a limited-slip differential combined with Porsche Torque Vectoring, and Porsche Active Suspension Management with dampers derived from the 991 GT3. A number of reinforcements were also made throughout the chassis. A Club Sport Package is also available, featuring a rear half-rollcage, preparation for a battery cut-off switch, a fire extinguisher and a six-point racing harness for the driver, compatible with a neck-saving HANS device. Sport Chrono Package with unique Track Precision app is also available specifically for GT4, adding an additional ECU to the car to deliver telemetry data to the driver's smartphone. In the United Kingdom, the GT4 could be ordered before its introduction at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March, and the first cars would arrive in dealerships in March. The Cayman GT4 has a projected Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time of 7 minutes 40 seconds.[44][45]It has a top speed of 195 mph of which is 315 km/hr.

Cayman GT4 Clubsport[edit]

On October 6, 2015 Porsche announced a Clubsport version of the Cayman GT4. Developed by Porsche Motorsport, the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport will debut at the 2015 LA Auto Show in November. It’s powered by the same 385 hp 3.8-litre flat-six engine found on the production Cayman GT4.

As opposed to the road going Cayman GT4, the clubsport version is fitted with a Porsche double clutch transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel as well as mechanical rear-axle locking differential. The Cayman GT4 Clubsport weighs only 1,300 kg and features the same lightweight suspension strut front axle found on the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. In addition to its lightweight features, it is also fitted with a roll-cage, six-point harness and a racing bucket seat.

Sales of the new Cayman GT4 Clubsport will commence after its debut in November and can be made through Porsche Motorsport in Weissach or Porsche Motorsport North America.
