The 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show has seen a lot of automotive goodies. One of them is the 2014 Porsche Cayman, based on the Porsche Boxster. The new ride is lower, wider and longer than the previous version, and it flaunts a new lightweight body as well.
Engine wise, the automaker did some magic and obtained a six-cylinder engine that is both more powerful and more efficient than before. It has a 15% lower fuel consumption, and 10 extra horsepower. The base version is powered by a 2.7-liter flat six engine with an output of 271, which can be coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission for a 0-62 mph time of 5.7 seconds; a PDK dual-clutch unit for 5.6 seconds; or a Sport Chrono kit for 5.4 seconds.
The Cayman S draws its force from a 3.4-liter flat-6 engine capable of 321 hp and a 0-62 mph sprint of 5 seconds (manual transmission with PDK), or 4.7 seconds (Sport Chrono package). When the cars will hit showrooms in 2013, they will be priced at $52,600 for the Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S.
