2015 Porsche Cayman OVERVIEW

The mid-engine Porsche Cayman has been regarded as a viable alternative to the more expensive 911 since it arrived as a hardtop companion model to the entry-level Boxster.

What's New for 2015

After a redesign for 2014, the Cayman receives few changes, except for the addition of a GT4 trim level.

Choosing Your Porsche Cayman

The Porsche Cayman comes in four flavors, the main difference being the engine that powers each:

  • The Base has a 2.7-liter flat-six that produces 275 horsepower and 213 pound-feet of torque. This engine can mate to a six-speed manual transmission or an automated seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. With the manual, 60 mph comes in 5.4 seconds, while the DCT drops the sprint time to as little as 5.1 seconds.
  • In S trim, the Cayman gains a 3.4-liter flat-six that makes 325 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Transmission options remain a six-speed manual or seven speed DCT. Acceleration times drop to 4.7 seconds and 4.5 seconds, respectively.
  • The GTS sticks with the 3.4-liter engine, but cranks up horsepower to 340 and torque to 280 pound-feet. You'll hit 60 mph in 4.6 seconds with the manual or 4.4 seconds with the DCT.
  • The range-topping GT4 gets a 3.8-liter engine borrowed from the 911 that produces 385 horsepower and 309 pound-feet of torque. This model is available only with a six-speed manual transmission. The 0-to-60 sprint takes only 4.2 seconds.

On top of the engines, each trim level does have minor differences. Let's have a look at all four and go through some of the key differences:

Base

The Base Cayman starts things off at $52,600 and comes pretty well equipped. Standard features include an auto-extending rear spoiler, a headlight cleaning system, 18-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, partial or full leather seating, and cruise control.

You can choose from six optional packages:

  • The Infotainment Package with Sound Package Plus runs $3,990 and adds items like a nine-speaker audio system, a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation and a 40 GB hard drive, and SiriusXM.
  • Getting into the Infotainment Package with Bose Surround Sound System will cost $4,690, and features a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound system with a subwoofer, AudioPilot, and 445 watts of power; a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation and a 40 GB hard drive; and SiriusXM with NavTraffic and NavWeather capabilities.
  • Next is the Infotainment Package with a Burmester High-End Surround Sound System, which adds $7,300 to the MSRP. This package is just like the Bose package, except with an upgrade to a Burmester 12-speaker system with 821 watts of power.
  • The Convenience Package, with a two-zone climate control system and heated seats, is relatively inexpensive, adding just $900 to the base MSRP.
  • The Premium Package checks in at $1,780, and comes with appealing options like bi-xenon headlights, a dynamic lighting system, an auto-dimming mirror, two-zone climate control and heated seats.
  • A Premium Package Plus adds $3,620 to the MSRP and includes everything that you see in the Premium Package plus vented seats, keyless entry and ignition, and ambient lighting.

S

The S starts at $64,100, and the majority of that is spent on its larger engine. Buyers also get 19-inch alloy wheels and extra console storage.

They also get a slight discount on some option packages:

  • The Infotainment Package with Bose Surround System runs $3,990
  • The Infotainment Package with Burmester High-End Surround Sound System costs $6,730
  • The Convenience Package is $900
  • The Premium Package costs $1,170
  • The Premium Package Plus checks in at $2,950

GTS

The GTS will wrangle $72,500 from your bank account. For this added cash, the GTS gains a 15-horsepower bump from the S trim, 20-inch wheels, a revised active suspension, underbody panels, an exclusive front fascia, upgraded aerodynamics, sport seats, black Alcantara interior accents, and a nine-speaker audio system with 235 watts, a 7-inch touchscreen, and a six-disc CD changer.

The GTS follows the trend of offering some option packages at a slightly lower cost:

  • The Infotainment Package with Bose Surround Sound System runs $3,990
  • The Infotainment Package with Burmester High-End Surround Sound System costs $6,730
  • The Convenience Package is $900
  • The Premium Package costs $965
  • The Premium Package Plus runs $1,965

GT4

The GT4 trim is all-new for the 2015 model year, and it checks in at $84,600. In addition to the 911 Carrera S's 3.8-liter engine, it also includes an active suspension with further enhancement, 20-inch wheels, a sport exhaust system, a fixed rear wing, bi-xenon headlights with a dynamic lighting system, a SportDesign steering wheel, and two-zone climate control.

The GT4 has an endless menu of optional features -- it is a Porsche, after all -- but no option packages.

CarsDirect Tip

A Cayman purchase is made more with the heart than the head, and it can get expensive very quickly. Even a Base model is a glorious thing, so buy what you can afford and enjoy every minute of it.
