Safety features are similarly abundant, with dual side and side curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, and Porsche Stability Management system, a performance-tuned stability control system. The Cayman S can also be fitted with ceramic composite brakes for superior fade resistance, and all models can opt for an upgrade to dynamic cornering lights to help see what's coming when the road ahead isn't straight. Crash testing hasn't been conducted by either the Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), however, so there are no official ratings for the 2010 Porsche Cayman or Cayman S.

Despite the lack of testing, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com reveal much praise for the 2010 Cayman's standard safety features. Car and Driver is particularly impressed with the operation of the vehicle's stability control, finding that "the intervention threshold of the stability-control system is commendably high." The side impact airbags are of a rather atypical design, as Cars.com notes that the Cayman's airbags don't deploy from the roof or A-pillar; instead "the Cayman S' curtain airbags are installed in the doors, like the Boxster roadster, and inflate upward."

Outward visibility can be counted as poor and one of the few drawbacks of the Cayman's design. Autoblog cites the "low stance" as the problem, but Kelley Blue Book says "the prominent roof pillars can block sightlines to the sides or rear." Fortunately, a rear-obstacle detection system is available to help improve rearward visibility in the 2010 Porsche Cayman.

Conclusion

The 2010 Porsche Cayman has good safety features, but visibility can be a problem-and no safety ratings are available.

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.
