The Cayman is essentially a curvaceous closed-coupe version of the Boxster convertible. The standard engine for 2007 is a 2.7-liter, 245-horsepower six with a more powerful, 295-horsepower, 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine available in the S. Both engines are mounted at the midpoint of the Cayman's chassis for optimum weight distribution. The Cayman S has a top speed of 170-plus and can reach 60 mph in about 5 seconds flat. As with the Boxster on which it's based, the Cayman offers truly tenacious handling, with a choice of either a six-speed-manual gearbox or a five-speed-automatic transmission with manual gear selection capability. High-capacity four-wheel disc brakes with Active Brake Differential, traction control and a speed-dependent extendable rear spoiler head an extensive list of standard features. As with the other models in Porsche's line, the Cayman offers a staggeringly long list of add-ons.
