2007 Porsche Cayman

Introduced as a 2006 model, the Cayman S wasted no time in serving notice of its intentions to rivals such as the Audi TT Quattro Coupe. BMW Z4 M Coupe and Mercedes-Benz SLK 350. For 2007, it’s joined by a slightly less potent but still remarkably engaging and considerably more affordable base Cayman.

Both offer a close encounter with 911-style driving experiences for thousands of dollars less. While sharing a good deal of basic engineering with Porsche’s entry-level Boxster line, the Cayman’s more rigid, closed-body structure gives this mid-engine rear-wheel-drive two-seater even better handling and a more graceful appearance. Although a tad pricy, the 245-horsepower Cayman and 295-horsepower Cayman S still deliver a great return on your fun-to-drive investment.

If being inside a small sport coupe makes you slightly claustrophobic, or you demand good rear sightlines or need large amounts of storage space, the Cayman simply isn’t going to cut it in your motoring world.

The biggest new here is the arrival of a 245-horsepower base Cayman model with a 2.7-liter engine from the Boxster. While slightly less exhilarating than the top-line 295-horsepower Cayman S with its 3.4-liter engine, the base car costs almost $10,000 less. The only change to the line is the addition of a tire pressure monitoring system.

suspension platform that allowed chassis engineers to work true handling magic, complementing the excellent Porsche Stability Management system (PSM) with quick, responsive steering and a clutch-and-shifter combo that’s near-perfect on both models. While the 245-horsepower base Cayman lacks the sheer acceleration of the pricier 295-horsepower S variant, it does offer a somewhat more complaint ride. And with both versions possessing prodigious stopping power and offering optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) that lets you fine tune the ride characteristics with the touch of a button, either Cayman may prove to be all the Porsche that you’ll really want or need.

The 245-horsepower 2.7-liter boxer flat-six engine that sits amidships in the Cayman and the 295-horsepower 3.4-liter six in the Cayman S both benefit from the same VarioCam Plus technology used on the flagship Porsche 911. This system precisely controls intake camshaft timing and valve lift to enhance both total response and fuel efficiency.

While the Cayman comes with a five-speed manual transmission and the Cayman S gets a six-speed gearbox (optional in the Cayman), for those who prefer an automatic a five-speed Tiptronic S with steering wheel-mounted shifter buttons is available on both models. Porsche claims a manually-shifted Cayman S can hit 60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds and a base car needs only 5.8 ticks to reach that benchmark, with their automatic counterparts adding about a second to each of those figures.
