Following on from the first successful production run of their Boxster sports car, Porsche launched their Porsche Cayman model in July 2006. Designed by Pinky Lai, who was also behind iconic car designs for Ford and BMW as well as Porsche, it is heavily indebted in styling to the second generation of the Boxster models.
That’s not the only thing it shares in common with its big brother either; like them, for its first six years in production the Cayman was assembled at Valmet Automotive’s plant in Finland, up until Volkswagen took up ownership of the Porsche name from 2012 onwards, when it moved to their operations in Osnabrück, Germany.
A mid-engined, two seater sports car, the Cayman is kitted out on a 2.9 litre 6 cylinder engine, powering out 261 bhp. This, as you might expect, helps it turn in a creditable performance once you take to the wheel, with swift acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, and it can reach speeds of up to 160 mph.
