As an expensive, relatively low-volume luxury sports car, the Cayman hasn't been crash-tested by either the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). Despite that fact, a healthy set of standard active and passive safety equipment does right by safety-minded buyers.
Dual front, side, and side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control are all standard. Upgraded ceramic composite brakes, dynamic cornering lights, and parking sensors take braking and visibility to the next level.
The Cayman's rearward visibility isn't great, however, and there's no rear-view camera available.
The 2012 Porsche Cayman brings dynamic handling and a strong set of standard and available safety equipment despite the lack of official crash-test ratings.
