The 2017 Porsche Cayman Facelift lets its actions do the talking. Sporty actions, of course. As a corner-devouring coupé, it follows a line of its own far removed from fashion trends and four-lane arterials. In the town certainly. On the racetrack definitely. But always for the sport of it. Compared with the previous models, the result is a new, decidedly more striking design, an even sportier chassis setup and a host of new performance, comfort and assistance systems. And, of course, up to 350 units of turbocharged horsepower (257 kW) – despite a considerable reduction in fuel consumption.
2017 Porsche Cayman Facelift Engine
The S models draw their power from a capacity of 2.5 litres. The result is 257 kW (350 hp) at 6,500 rpm. The maximum torque of 420 Nm is available across an impressively wide range from 1,900 to 4,500 rpm. This engine – like the unit in the 911 Turbo – also comes equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG). VTG provides an even more consistent delivery of power and, in turn, significantly greater driving pleasure. Propulsive potential? Top speed is 285 km/h. The S models with PDK and Launch Control complete the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 4.2 seconds.
Nevertheless, the power output of the new engines has been significantly increased. This has been possible thanks to the turbochargers developed for the Cayman models completely from scratch. The respective turbocharger is particularly compact and has been optimally adapted to the displacement and power output of the engine. The result could not deliver a clearer message. The extraordinarily wide torque plateau makes itself felt with each demand for throttle – barely 30 cm behind your back.

All buttons and functions are intuitive to operate, all information is always ready to hand. The instrument cluster with 4.6-inch colour screen provides you with a continuous stream of data from the on-board computer. It also displays the map of the optional navigation system, delivers various warnings and reminds you of your chosen communication and audio settings.
The materials are no less suited to the sporty challenge. Leather and Alcantara® are easy to grip, while the firmly padded Sports seats provide support during dynamic cornering manoeuvres. The Sports seats are comfortable and provide support even during performance driving. They come equipped with electric backrest adjustment and mechanical height and fore/aft adjustment.
