SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

the prominent roof pillars can block sightlines to the sides or rear
Kelley Blue Book

the intervention threshold of the stability-control system is commendably high
Car and Driver

available safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, and side airbags
Consumer Guide



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.

Conclusion

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.

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.
