Porsche has unveiled their base Cayman model and it is over £7,000 less expensive than the S version. Rather than using the 3.4l engine, as fitted in the S, the base model is to be powered by the Boxsters’ 2.7l flat-six. The unit develops 245bhp compared with the 3.4’s 295bhp and accelerates the Cayman from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds. The model is set to arrive in the Porsche Showrooms on 29th July 2006. It has different double-spoke alloys, and black brake calipers.
Mmmmmm. I’d love one of those! 😉
