Default 2013 Porsche Cayman

As the next Boxster is approaching, a new Porsche Cayman is also coming up, and spotted first time:

http://www.autoweek.nl/autonieuws/16...Porsche-Cayman





At forst glance, like usually with Porsche, everything seems unchanged - however, proportions do look a bit different at the back, more 911 like than the current model, but that's probably just the pic.

Due for 2013, the real news is under the hood: a 4 cyl. Turbo engine, 2,5l, with up to 365hp. Also it is said that production will move from Valmet factory in FInland to the ex Karman factory in Osnabrück/Germany, where currently the new Golf Cabrio is built.....

Porsche=stagnation! The Boxster and Cayman should have gone to aluminum construction, turbocharged smaller displacement engine, and hybrid propulsion equalling current performance and price to demonstrate cutting-edge engineering leadership. "All new" Porsche are just the old car with incrementally more horsepower and slightly altered 911 caricature sheet metal. Yes this will be a great sports car, but its very much an old-wine-new-bottle vehicle.

This will have a smaller 4 Cyl. with a Turbo charger. However Porsche 6 cyl Boxers are usually known for good real life MPG, something you hardly hear from this newe breed of down sized engines - yes, impressive combind cycle figures, but real life is often far away.

I wouldn't want a turbo-charged 4-cyl in a Porsche sports car.
The performance of their S-series of Boxter/Cayman is too good to pass up; 0-60 in about 4.5 seconds.
Not to mention the responsiveness of a NA engine....
