Porsche Cayman, Porsche Boxster: More info about the leaked facelift

Porsche Cayman, Porsche Boxster
We have more information for you about the leaked facelift of the Porsche Cayman and Porsche Boxster.

Out goes the old 2.7-litre flat-six cylinder engine and in comes a new 2.9-litre unit with 265hp and 300Nm of torque, up 20hp and 27Nm over its predecessor. As a result, expect a 0-62mph in around six seconds for the entry-level Cayman.

A six-speed manual gearbox will be standard, but like the 911, Porsche’s PDK twin-clutch gearbox will be available as an option and thanks to its snappier shift, expect a couple of tenths to be shaved off the 0-62mph time. Other options will include a limited-slip differential (LSD) for the first time too on the entry-level model.

The range-topping S models gets a 320bhp direct injection version of the new 2.9-litre engine, capable of accelerating the Cayman S from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds, with the PDK-version hitting the benchmark in five seconds dead. Not only do these improvement result in more performance, but they also help to reduce fuel consumption and emissions too.
