STUTTGART, Germany, November 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Porsche AG is celebrating the world premiere of the new Cayman at the 2012 Los
Angeles Auto Show. The third generation of the Cayman has been completely new
developed. It is lower and longer, lighter and faster, more efficient and more
powerful than ever. A longer wheelbase, wider track and larger wheels enhance
the driving performance of the mid-engine sports car to a level without equal
in its competitive class. The new Cayman is up to 30 kg lighter, depending on
the specific model and equipment, and it consumes up to 15 per cent less fuel
per 100 km than the previous model - despite higher engine and driving

The new generation of the two-seat mid-engine sports car is debuting in two
classic Porsche versions: the Cayman and the Cayman S. The base model is
powered by a 2.7-liter flat six-cylinder engine with 275 hp (202 kW). It
accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds, depending on the equipment,
and reaches a top speed of 266 km/h. Its NEDC fuel consumption lies between
7.7 l/100 km and 8.2 l/100 km, depending on the selected transmission. The
3.4-liter engine of the Cayman S produces 325 hp (239 kW); the best possible
acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h is 4.7 seconds with appropriate
features. The Cayman S can reach a top speed of 283 km/h, and its NEDC fuel
consumption value lies between 8.0 l/100 km and 8.8 l/100 km, depending on the
selected transmission.

Porsche is also upgrading the Cayman with new optional features. For example,
the sport coupé is now available with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) for the
first time, which controls the distance to the car ahead in traffic and
vehicle speed, as well as a specially developed Burmester sound system.
Another new feature for the Cayman is the keyless Entry & Drive system, which
is available as an option.
