It seems the days of Porsche artificially limiting development of its mid-engined models in favour of preserving its 911 range are drawing to a close, with the launch of the new Porsche Cayman GT4.
Porsche has unveiled the new Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS, both of which are powered by a 3.4-litre flat-six engine with an additional 15hp over their respective S models.
The new 2013 Porsche Cayman has been unveiled, with a longer wheelbase, new chassis, and reduced weight. The new Cayman is on sale in the UK now, priced from £39,694, or £48,783 for the Cayman S
The Porsche Cayman S Black Edition will be limited to 500 examples worldwide, powered by 330 hp 3.4-litre flat six engine, and on sale September 2011 priced from £50,420
The new Porsche Cayman R is 55 kg lighter than the equivalent Cayman S model, features a more powerful 330 hp flat-six engine, and goes on sale in February 2011, priced from £51,731
The Porsche Boxster and Cayman have been revised, with subtle styling changes and an increase in engine capacity and power, which leads not only to improved performance but also reduced emissions and greater economy
Porsche is to expand its mid-engine coupe model range with the launch, in November 2007, of the Cayman S Porsche Design Edition 1, a limited-edition special series
The arrival of the Porsche Cayman S confused many people. Porsche believed they had identified a niche between the Boxster and the 911, whereas logic dictates that the soft-top version should be the more expensive. When the Cayman S first arrived in late 2005, it debuted the company's new 295bhp 3.4-litre flat-six and, at this point, we thought we understood what Porsche were trying to do. The Cayman, then, was a harder, more powerful, tighter-focused version of the Boxster, and that performance benefit justified the increased price. Our reasoning fell apart, however, when Porsche replaced the Boxster S 3.2-litre engine with the Cayman S's 3.4. And introduced a non-S Cayman 2.7. With identical power and performance figures, what exactly do you get for £4,000 extra?
Porsche has begun to supply Aerokits for its Cayman und Cayman S sports cars, consisting of add-on front spoiler lips and a new, fixed rear spoiler
Following the successful launch of the Cayman S in autumn 2005, Porsche is introducing the Cayman, the standard version of the mid-engine sports coupe
The new Porsche Cayman S will go on sale in the UK on 26 November, 2005, priced from £43,930
Later this year Porsche will be extending its range of sports cars through the introduction of a new model - the Cayman S
