What’s the Best Value Offered By Porsche?

May 16th, 2012

No quest for your next sports car should be complete without considering the oft-overlooked Porsche Cayman. At around $30,000 less to start than the iconic Porsche 911, the Cayman rewards its owner with 90% of the performance and may just be the best true sports car you’ll find for anywhere close to $50k.

With the Cayman, its recipe for success hinges on one important attribute:  balance. The two-seat coupe’s mid-engined configuration makes it inherently easier to drive hard than the rear-engined 911. Available in 265-horsepower base and 320-horsepower S variants, as well as the exclusive 330-horsepower Cayman R and Black Edition, even the base model is truly exhilarating thanks to the car’s low center of gravity and sub-3,000-lb. curb weight.

Among $50,000-ish performance cars, think of Cayman as the finely honed, razor-sharp scalpel to the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500‘s 20-lb. sledgehammer. This is a car that can do everything you can do as a driver without protest, while surrounding you and your passenger in true German luxury.

2013 Porsche Cayman Spy Photos

The new 2013 Porsche Cayman in the flesh with barely any camo, and a nice layer of dirt.  Porsche’s newest midengined roadster was recently caught testing on the streets of Germany, looking great with its new wider, more voluptuous stance. With design details predictably echoing the new Boxster, the Cayman will officially debut…soon. We expect the same 2.7-liter and 3.4-liter flat-6 engines as the Boxster.

Let’s hope that the finished product looks like this.

We’ll bring you pricing and release date info as soon as we have it.  To see pricing on the current 2012 Porsche Cayman, click here.
