Expert Quotes:

2011 Porsche Cayman: 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK), 19/27 mpg (manual)

2011 Porsche Cayman S: 19/26 mpg (manual), 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK)

Porsche's sportscar probably take the EPA by surprise, since their ground-ripping performance doesn't get in the way of great fuel economy.

The 2011 Cayman comes in base and S versions, and both have highway gas mileage that nears 30 mpg. The base Cayman gets an EPA-rated 20/29 mpg with its dual-clutch transmission, which the agency rather oversimplifies as an "automatic." With the six-speed manual instead, the Cayman sags a bit but still finishes with a 19/27 mpg rating.

The Cayman S is more powerful, but with the PDK dual-clutch gearbox, it carries the same fuel-economy rating as the base car. The manual Cayman S loses one more mile per gallon, with its 19/26 mpg score.

Porsche hasn't said hybrids or diesels are in the Cayman's future, but the sportscar maker is dabbling in gas-electric drive with its Cayenne SUV--and with its staggering 918 concept supercar.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
