What You Will Like

The Cayman is Porsche's entry-level sports coupe. It slots below the 911 and slightly above the convertible Boxster, on which the Cayman is based. It competes with other sports cars in the $60,000 range such as the BMW Z4 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class convertible. While the Cayman may not have the absolute horsepower of some of its rivals, it can generally match them in performance thanks to a lightweight body, exceptional mid-engine chassis dynamics, and plenty of engineering know-how. Unlike many of its competitors, the Cayman is also an extremely refined vehicle and as such, it's easy to live with day-to-day. The Cayman's high level of quality and Porsche's signature precision are what really set the car apart.

What's New For 2016

A new model sits at the top of the Cayman lineup: the Cayman GT4. With a much more powerful engine and a stiffer, more sporting chassis, the Cayman GT4 is the ultimate mid-engined sports car from Porsche. It goes on sale this year and will be built in extremely limited numbers.

Introduction

Porsche Cayman looks great and drives great, with balance, poise, and maneuverability. The mid-engine coupe is at its best blasting through canyons and back roads.

Cayman was redesigned for 2014, and not changed much since then. With four available engine versions and two transmissions, same as the 2016 Boxster, it appeals to Porsche enthusiasts with different desires and driving styles.

Cayman comes with a 2.7-liter flat six-cylinder making 275 horsepower; Cayman S gets a 3.4-liter flat-six making 325 horsepower; Cayman GTS, which has the most features and equipment, uses a 340-horsepower version of the 3.4-liter. The GTS adds a sport exhaust, adaptive suspension, and larger wheels.

Transmissions include the standard 6-speed manual or optional 7-speed dual-clutch automatic manual, called the PDK (or, if you prefer, Porsche Doppelkupplung). With the PDK and Sport Chrono package, which includes launch control, the Cayman can accelerate to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds, the Cayman S in 4.6 seconds, and the Cayman GTS in 4.5 seconds.

New for 2016 is the Cayman GT4, stripped down for speed. It’s powered by a 3.8-liter version of the flat six, and is aimed at owners who do track days. It makes 385 horsepower, or 45 more than the heavily equipped GTS, and uses the 6-speed manual gearbox. Acceleration from 0-60 takes just 4.2 seconds, according to Porsche.

Cayman gets 20/30 mpg City/Highway with the manual transmission, according to EPA estimates, 22/32 mpg with the dual-clutch. The Cayman S is rated 20/28 mpg with the PDK, the GTS 22/31 mpg, the GT4 18/23 mpg.

Lineup

The 2016 Porsche Cayman ($52,600) comes with the 275-hp 2.7-liter engine. Cayman S ($64,100) has the 325-hp 3.4-liter. Cayman GTS ($75,200) features a 340-hp version of the 3.4-liter. Cayman GT4 ($84,600) features a 385-hp 3.8-liter engine and is stripped for speed.

Walkaround

The Cayman might considered a coupe version of the Boxster by some, but not us. It’s a gorgeous car, although maybe not as stunning as the new Jaguar F-Type R. Its unique curves flow from the low nose over the rising front fenders, with aero angles that make it appear more rakish than the Boxster. The lines roll from the fenders onto the teardrop roof that slopes to the tail, while the flared rear fenders wrap around to touch an integrated rear spoiler on a deck that’s not as wide as the 911. Unlike the 911, there’s no way you can say its shaped evolved from an upside-down bathtub.

Interior

The physical distinction between the Cayman and Boxster is lost in the cabin, as the two are almost identical, while both are similar to the 911. The instrumentation is clean and focused on driving, as it should be in a Porsche.

There’s a tight grid of switches and buttons on the center stack that might seem busy, but we’ll take this design any day, over flat touchscreens, like in that gorgeous-on-the-outside Jaguar. It’s a pity the functional beauty of the Porsche can’t be seen from the sidewalk.

Driving Impressions

The Porsche flat six engine is a rev-happy sucker that climbs up the range evenly and progressively, and even the base 2.7-liter with 275 horsepower offers performance that exceeds the ordinary.

The electric power steering is light and accurate, taking qualities from the system in the faster 911. It lacks the feedback of the hydraulic unit in the previous generation, but it’s likely the best in this class, and contributes to the Cayman’s superb dynamic poise. The car weighs about 3000 pounds, fairly light for a sports car this size, and the mid-mounted engine results in good balance and weight distribution, keeping the handling nimble and grip good, to aid the acceleration.

The balance and aerodynamics also keep the Cayman stable at extreme speeds, not that you’ll go there or even that we tested it there. But others have, and that’s the point: stability. The base Cayman with unremarkable horsepower can hit 165 miles per hour, the Cayman S will go 175, the GTS 177, and the new lightweight 385-horsepower GT4 can take you to 183 mph. All without worry.

Do they do track days at Daytona? Maybe not, but the GT4 was tested by Porsche at the legendary Nurburgring circuit, where Porsche said it clocked a time of 7:40, matching the lap times of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Lamborghini Murcielago and McLaren Mercedes SLR, while being only two seconds slower than the Porsche 911 Turbo. But, while we’re at it, eight seconds slower than the Mustang Ford Shelby GT350R and 20 seconds slower than the Corvette ZR1. (GT4 is shown here at Road Atlanta.)

In addition to having less weight and more horsepower, the GT4 is about 1.2 inches lower than the other Caymans, and has a couple aero tweaks and a big rear wing to create more downforce aiding that stability at 183 mph. There are also more cooling inlets in the nose, and special mounts in the six-speed manual gearbox to reduce vibration.

The GT4 only comes with the manual transmission, but the other models offer the seven-speed twin clutch. On top of that option there’s the Sport Chrono option, which adds the transmission mounts, more aggressive electronic programming, and launch control to eliminate wheelspin from a standing start, which explains why the zero-to-sixty times we quoted are faster with the PDK/Sport Chrono. Burnouts are showy but slow.

Summary

The Porsche Cayman delivers outstanding performance and handling in a beautiful sports car. A range of models offers everything from fast to faster. It all comes down to how fast you want to go.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
