The 2011 Cayman doesn't have an overwhelming set of standard features, but it covers the usual bases and has Porsche's typically long list of options--which can boost the price of the two-seat hardtop by a significant margin.
The Cayman comes with standard power windows, locks and mirrors; an anti-theft system; leather-trimmed seats; and an audio system with a CD player and this year, a universal interface for portable music players. Bluetooth is another addition to the standard-equipment list for 2011.
On the options list, Porsche offers a Bose Surround Sound speaker upgrade; automatic climate control; cruise control; a heated steering wheel; sports seats; heated and ventilated seats; bigger alloy wheels; sport exhaust; the Sport Chrono Plus package; and the Porsche Communications Management system, which groups controls for navigation, audio, and communications on a large LCD screen.Though the base price of the Cayman starts around $52,000, Porsche has a long list of custom trim pieces, like a leather-upholstered dash and aluminum trim, that can be fitted. Those options can push the Cayman's price into 911 territory, if you're not careful.
It's fairly well-equipped out of the factory, and the 2011 Porsche Cayman lets owners pick and choose colors, trims, and finishes.
