Porsche will be expanding its range of
vehicles with the introduction of a new sports car based on the Boxster series
in the 2006 model year. Positioned and priced between the 911 Carrera and the
Boxster S, the new two-seat sports car, named the Cayman S, is aggressively
styled to reflect its enhanced handling and more powerful engine. At the same
time, highly efficient space utilization makes it one of the most practical
sports cars in its class.
The Cayman S joins the Carrera, Boxster, and Cayenne, model designations that are already rich in tradition. It derives its name from the smallest of crocodiles, the caiman, which is known to be swift and nimble. With its more powerful 295 bhp, 3.4-liter, six-cylinder boxer engine mounted in the middle of its chassis, the new fixed-roof model reflects the strength and agility of its namesake perfectly and is capable of providing driving pleasure in its purest form.
