    Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Porsche Cayman S
    Power: 295 HP
    Top Speed: 275 kph
    Performance: 0-100 kph in 5.4 sec
    Max. Torque: 340 Nm between 4400 and 6000 rpm
    Price tag in Germany incl. 16% VAT: 58529 Euro

    The Cayman S has 18'' wheels and PSM as standard
    PASM and Tiptronic S are available as options
    Variocam Plus comes with the engine, this seems to indicate the probability that the Cayman S engine is based on the 996 M96 engine.

    Here are the long awaited pictures, enjoy.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    The nice rear.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Nice.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Wow! Looks great. Is that rear lip spoiler fixed or does it extend? Also, new wheel design looks good. I like small spokes that show off the calipers underneath. Any interior pics yet RC?

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    No interior pics yet but there isn't much difference to the Boxster S.
    Another thing I forgot to mention: the rear hatch with the window can be opened, similar to the 996 Targa.

    Here are some close-up shots.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    3. and last close-up shot.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Thanks a lot, RC!
    I must say it needs to grow on me... I will take a lot of looks at these pics, and then slowely grow an opinion First impression is that it looks good, with no real surprises. I had expected a bit more of the back, but all in all it does not look very bad.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    the back is very very nice and overall the car is pretty sweet. Just like joost said, I have to get used to it thanks for the pics!

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    "The euro-basic price for the Cayman S amounts to 50,300 euro. Inclusive value added tax and state-specific requirements costs the vehicle in Germany to 58,529 euro."
    -RC, I translated this on a translation website from the thread about the caymen you posted in germen in the news section. What does the quotation above mean. 50,300??
    Also, it said the chassis is aluminum. Is that new or am I just ignorant

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    The back I realy realy like very nice indeed, the bumper is great.

    The fron with the round fogs I'm not so sure about.

    The wheels, nice v nice. Good to see we have some new designs instead of using the same 997 987 ones we have already seen.

    Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh as that is always the major test!

    Thanks again RC!

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Similar to most everyone here, I like it more everytime I look at the pictures again. I see the "wart" everyone loves so much (even though, I must admit that I am a fan of the "wart"). I like the line of the car very much, but, am glad I ordered the boxster S, like the topless option!

    Thanks RC!

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Thank's for the pictures
    AMAZING CAR

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    thanks for the pics!

    This is just a potential misunderstanding arising from translation from German to English. The German word "Fahrwerk" can mean the same as the English expressions "chassis" or "suspension", depending on context.
    In this instance it should have been translated as "suspension", because it refers to the aluminum alloy suspension control arms.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    The biggest question is now.

    what s the weight.

    At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    Thirty years after it ceased production Triumph have replaced the GT6 Mk3 with the Mk4. In an attempt to boost sales, the new model is marketed as the Porsche Cayman, reflecting the joint venture between the two companies.

    I hope they got rid of those swing-axle halfshafts at the rear end.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Wow! Thanks RC.
    I really like it. I think it will do really well.
    The only thing I don't like from the pics are the rims. Besides that I think they have hit a home run.

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    Here is the official English press info, guys.

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    "The aluminum chassis with a large track emphasizes the sporty, dynamic appearance of the vehicle, which is fitted as standard with 18-inch tires. In combination with Porsche Stability Management (PSM), also a standard feature, the chassis sets a benchmark in the area of driving dynamics and active driving safety. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) can be ordered as a option. This system lowers the body ten millimeters closer to the ground and automatically adjusts the suspension ratings to the given road conditions. The driver can select the Normal or Sport programs via a button in the center console.

    The basic price for the Cayman S is 50,300 euros. The vehicle costs 58,529 euros in Germany including value added tax and country-specific requirements."

    The chassis apparently is aluminum, not just the suspension.

    Also this says the base price is 50,300 euros??? Please someone explain this. So what will the base price be in the US.

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    I'd say that in the US, the Cayman S should cost around 8000 USD more than the Boxster S. This is just an assumption, not a fact. It may be a little bit more or a little bit less.

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    Don't know what to make of its looks yet, I'm sure we'll get acustomed to it soon, but it does look like a fun car

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    The Cayman name suddenly seems appropriate after seeing the side view!

    Someone screwed up on the translation. See my post above where I explained how this must have happened.

    Re: At Last! Triumph replace the GT6 Mk3

    The more I look at the back the more I find it absolutly amazing!!! Strong, powerfull, sporty and elegant. It might clash a bit with the front.......

    My goodness ..

    My goodness, the front is ugly, especially the fog lights.
    My goodness, the back is ugly too.
    I can't say I like the side view either.
    Have they made it deliberately less attractive than the 997 and Boxster I ask myself?
    Will it grow on me?
    Maybe. Then ugliness has not stopped warts growing on me.

    Re: Cayman Pictures and Data Online!

    Very sweet. IMHO this is the car that will evolve into the 911 successor in 5 - 10 years.
