Every 2014 Porsche Cayman comes with a tremendous amount of standard equipment, but there's a huge array of a la carte options available, as well. One caveat for the Cayman buyer, as with nearly any Porsche: beware the price creep that comes with ticking lots of cool feature boxes.
The base Cayman and Cayman S include a wealth of convenience and luxury items: rain-sensing wipers; electric-adjust heated exterior mirrors; ambient footwell lighting; cruise control; two-way adjustable sport seats; 4.6-inch TFT instrument cluster display; 7-inch color touchscreen infotainment control; Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity; and more.
Optional extras include an upgraded audio system; Bose surround sound; six-disc CD/DVD changer; ventilated seats; heated seats; heated steering wheel; adaptive cruise control; 14-way adjustable memory sport seats; a fire extinguisher; dual-zone automatic climate control; Burmester sound; and much more.
In addition to the numerous comfort and convenience features, the Cayman also offers the Sport Chrono package, a full-fledged performance kit that upgrades the entire car in one way or another, from throttle and transmission response to suspension tuning and more. A range of settings are selectable through a console-mounted set of buttons, offering Sport and Sport Plus modes in addition to normal cruising mode.
The Sport Chrono package is maximized when matched with the PDK transmission, which allows the computer to realize several features not possible with the manual transmission, including Launch Control, a "motorsport-derived gearshift strategy," and more. The Sport Chrono also allows the car to store and report lap times and other performance metrics for later analysis.
