FrontRunners: Out of the Boxster

<< Back to Robb Report, March 2013

    A two-seat sports coupe for the Porsche purist, the 2014 Porsche Cayman S (www.porsche.com) is more solid, better balanced, and nimbler than the Boxster roadster from which it derives. The Cayman S’s 3.4-liter flat-6 engine, which it shares with the Boxster S and the base-model Carrera, develops 325 hp. Paired with a 6-speed manual, the engine launches the Cayman S from zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. The optional 7-speed PDK automated-manual transmission and Sport-Chrono Package together reduce the zero-to-60-mph time to 4.4 seconds. The Cayman S has a base price of about $64,000.
