Expert Quotes:

2012 Porsche Cayman: 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK), 19/27 mpg (manual)
EPA

2012 Porsche Cayman R: 19/27 mpg (manual), 20/29 mpg (automatic PDK)
EPA



As a luxury sports car, the Cayman could be forgiven by many of its buyers for less than stellar gas mileage, but that's not a necessary concession. The Cayman with PDK gets a respectable 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway for a combined 24 mpg, according to the EPA.

With the manual transmission, the standard Cayman rates slightly poorer, at 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway for 22 mpg combined.

In Cayman S trim, the PDK model gets 20/29 mpg city/highway for 23 mpg combined, and the manual version scores 19/26 mpg for 22 mpg combined.

The stripped-down, higher-performance Cayman R leverages its light weight to deliver the same economy as the base model despite its more powerful engine, rating 20/29 mpg with the PDK and 19/27 mpg with the manual.

Conclusion

Handling prowess, luxury accommodations, and compact-car gas mileage--what's not to like about the 2012 Porsche Cayman?

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.
