  • The Cayman becomes the latest Porsche sports car to switch from natural aspiration to turbocharging. Now called Cayman S, the range-topping version is.

    Porsche Cayman S Is a Superb but Pricey Ride. Swift acceleration and sharp handling make this mid-engined Porsche a pedigreed sports car for enthusiasts. The coupe version of the mid-engine Boxster roadster, the Cayman, delivers Porsche-grade thrills for less money.

    The Porsche Cayman S starts at $ while our test car costs $ with options. The Cayman S has is powered by a horsepower.

Safety and Driver-Assist Systems Overall, the Cayman is skimpy on available driver-assist features, and a forward-collision warning system is available as part of the optional adaptive cruise control package. The Cayman always has been about unflappable, scalpel-sharp handling. More than closing the top on the Boxster, the Cayman has a sleek and classy look that signals its heritage and track-ready performance.

    More than closing the top on the Boxster, the Cayman has a sleek and classy look that signals its heritage and track-ready performance. The Cayman always has been about unflappable, scalpel-sharp handling. It remains a superbly balanced, two-seat sports car that's comfortable enough to be driven daily. We rented a Cayman S from Porsche outfitted with many of those pricey options.

    Like the Boxster, the Cayman has made the switch from six-cylinder engines to turbocharged four-cylinders. This results in the loss of the high-revving zing we loved in the previous Cayman but also means drivers can get power more easily and better fuel economy. The Cayman S fires up with a bark from its centrally located, twin-outlet exhaust.

    After an initial hesitation when accelerating from a standstill, the turbocharged four-cylinder engine responds vigorously to the driver's right foot, moving the Cayman S down the road with impressive speed.

    Paddles behind the steering wheel can be used to manually control shifts during enthusiastic driving, but the transmission works well even when left to its own devices. For driving purists, a six-speed manual comes standard. The EPA rates the Cayman S at 24 mpg combined, which is pretty efficient for a high-performance sports car.

    We got 26 mpg overall during our testing of the Boxster with the smaller, base four-cylinder turbo. The Cayman takes to corners with a precision few other cars—regardless of price—can match.

    The mid-engine layout and well-tuned suspension endow the Cayman with fantastic balance, while the precise steering communicates excellent feedback. They're probably only a worthy investment if track days will be a big part of the owner's Cayman lifestyle. The Cayman is louder inside than most cars.

    The sound is ever-present and clatters even when driven gently. The exhaust roar becomes more invigorating as the revs climb. The Cayman sits low to the ground. It helps if occupants are limber enough to slide over the wide sill and drop down into the contoured seats; exiting means they'll have to pull themselves up and out in a less-than-graceful manner.

    Once in, the driving position feels perfect for sporty driving, with a great view out over the low hood. The well-bolstered seats hold occupants in place, and provide all-day comfort.
