2012 Porsche Cayman Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy
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.

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

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.
