The second-generation Porsche Cayman is deep into its development programme ahead of a planned unveiling at the Los Angeles motor show in November. This test prototype captured by our photographers showed almost 90,000 miles on its odometer.

The mid-engined two-seater gets the same lightweight aluminium body, roomier cabin and upgraded six-cylinder engines as its sister car, the new third-generation Boxster.

The base Cayman’s engine will be a 2.7-litre flat six, downsized from the 2.9 in today’s car. It’s expected to produce about 280bhp, up from 262bhp in the 2.9. The Cayman S will get a 3.4-litre flat six with about 330bhp, up from 315bhp in today’s car.

The new Cayman will be offered with a six-speed manual as standard and 
an optional seven-speed, 
dual-clutch auto gearbox.

The aluminium body is aligned to an all-new chassis that boasts a longer wheelbase and significantly wider front track. The suspension retains MacPherson struts up front and a multi-link arrangement at the rear. Wheels are up to 20 inches — up from 19 inches previously. The bigger wheels can house larger brakes.
Like the latest 911, the Cayman’s steering eschews hydraulic assistance for a new electro-mechanical system.

A limited-slip differential will be an option as part of the Porsche Torque Vectoring package. This is likely to be offered on the Cayman S only.

The Cayman will mirror the look of the new Boxster, which itself drew inspiration from 
the Carrera GT.
