    Does anyone have some great pics of the next Boxster?

    Porsche Cayman (2012) the first spy photos...

    (5 July 2011)

    The next Porsche 911 debuts at the Frankfurt motor show this September, the wraps will be pulled off the Mk3 Boxster at the 2012 Detroit motor show, but there’s a third all-new Porsche on the way too. It’s the second-generation Porsche Cayman, caught by our spies while on test at the Nürburgring; it’ll be on sale in the UK by the end of 2012.

    I know  this car – the new Porsche Cayman is just a revised version of the current Porsche Cayman, right?

    Not quite, as it’s an all-new model – albeit one that shares a lot of DNA with the new 981 Boxster and 991 911. However, Porsche is determined to spread its offerings over a much wider range of market segments, so differentiation is the new name of the game, not standardisation and simplification. Items like bespoke doors will now help you tell the mid-engined cars apart from the rear-engined icon, and Stuttgart’s designers have made further effort to differentiate all three. Inside expect a heavy Cayenne/Panamera influence, with a rising transmission tunnel.

    Like its forthcoming Mk3 Boxster sibling, the current Cayman’s 2415mm wheelbase will be stretched by 60mm, increasing legroom by 18mm; overall length is up, but the front overhang will be decreased by around 25mm. But despite the increase in size, bigger wheels and tyres (18s rather than 17s will standard on the boggo model, 19s on the S) and extra crash structures, both the standard Cayman and Cayman S will weigh less than their predecessors – reckon on at least a 15kg weight saving for each. 

    When does the Cayman get four-pot power?

    Not until both the Cayman and Boxster are facelifted in 2015/2016, and if marketing agrees, the entire range could eventually switch to the new drivetrain. The pair are expected to receive the bigger-bore 2.5-litre twin-turbo flat four, which comes in various power guises up to 355bhp and 347lb ft.; a smaller 1.6 version is reserved for the 356 and its VW and Audi (and potentially Seat) cousins. The first hybridised Cayman (and Boxster) models should also appear in 2016.

    In the meantime, the Cayman sticks with its famed flat sixes. Just as the new Boxster will gain an extra 10bhp to put it on par with today’s entry level Cayman (and the S will move up to a Cayman R-equaling 315bhp), so the new hardtop car will be subtly boosted to justify the extra Porsche charges over the Boxster. The lighter weight, more efficient engines, honed aerodynamics and new features such as start-stop, extensive thermo-management, recuperation and a new electrically-assisted power-steering add up to an 18% drop in consumption

    And as an aside, the next, next Boxster and Cayman will appear in 2018 and 2019, using a development of the new platform, as the two-generation lifecycle was signed off before VW took charge.

    Next Porsche Cayman - new pics...

     

    (5 July 2011)

    These are the best spy pics yet of Porsche's second-generation Cayman in action.

    Spied in high-speed testing at the Nurburgring ahead of its 2012 launch, Porsche's small sports car will receive lightly reworked versions of today’s 2.9 and 3.4 six-cylinder engines, delivering around 280bhp (in the 2.9) and 330bhp (3.4).

    Other changes from the first-gen to second-gen Cayman include a new electro-mechanical steering system and a stop-start system to help boost the Cayman's economy and reduce CO2 emissions.

    Longer term, Porsche plans to give the Cayman a new turbo 2.0 flat four being developed for its 2014 mid-engined sub-Boxster roadster.

    The next-gen Cayman will be launched alongside the third-generation Boxster, which is also at the Nurburgring for high-speed testing. Every panel in the new Cayman and Boxster models will be new, as will the Boxster's fabric roof. The new panels will be lighter, too, to keep weight to a minimum.

    The wheelbase and overall length of both cars will both grow, the length to nearly 4.4 metres, providing more passenger and luggage space. These changes will also help create space in the Porsche range for the smaller roadster.

    The timing of the arrival of the new models coincides with the end of Porsche’s contract with Valmet Automotive in Finland, where the current Boxster and Cayman are made. Production of the next-gen cars will switch to Stuttgart.

    Porsche Cayman spy shots...

     

    All-new coupe spotted camouflaged, but showing off its revised silhouette...

    (4 July 2011)

    Porsche has always taken an evolutionary approach to design. The timeless silhouette of the 911 for example, has barely altered over a period of nearly 50 years, and it would appear that the company are sticking with this design philosophy with the next-generation Cayman, as these spy shots reveal.

    At the front new LED headlights provide a sharper, fresher look and deep air intakes in the bumper add aggression. In profile, the model appears to be similar to its predecessor with the most significant changes consisting of more flared wheelarches and what appears to be a slightly higher window-line positioned above sculpted rear flanks.

    The biggest changes are reserved for the rear end, which appears much lower to the ground than before, with a strikingly large rear window providing greater rearward visibility and hinting at increased practicality.

    It’s likely the new Cayman will follow the trend set by the second-generation Cayenne and the upcoming next-generation Boxster by shedding some weight as Porsche looks to improve economy across their range and lower combined CO2 output to comply with increasingly tough Euro V emission standards.

    Buyers can expect the Cayman to make its debut at a major motor show in late 2012, ahead of its 2013 on-sale date.

    Re: 2013 Cayman/Boxster-Spy Shots

    Great pics Gauss and thanks for the info! I'm sure as time passes we will see more pics of the next gen Boxster/Cayman. I thought it was a good idea to start a thread.Towards the debut of the boxster we may see them with as little camo as the recent 991 pics!

    I'm simply gathering Boxster Coupe GTS' posts about the Cayman. We have to thank him Smiley

    Oh, ok. See if you can find some more interior pics and boxster spy shots:)

    Re: 2013 Cayman/Boxster-Spy Shots

    Porsche is probably using the distraction of the 991 to further test the boxster and cayman. I'm sure that the prototypes are out testing right now. We may see more shots soon:)


    Re: 2013 Cayman/Boxster-Spy Shots

     I like the side views of the Cayman, it looks like the proportions are more coherent this time around making the car look more aggressive and muscular. otoh I really dislike those air vents on the interior. 


    Re: 2013 Cayman/Boxster-Spy Shots

    I don't like the vents either, but it looks like that is what the interior will look like. Also, it may just be comparable to when we first saw interior pictures of the 991-When it was'nt complete.There's a hole in the dash for the navigation also.

    Re: 2013 Cayman/Boxster-Spy Shots

    I really like what they've done to the rear 3/4 of the Cayman. Always thought the slope of the rear looked somehow wrong and unresolved, but this looks a lot better. Can't say the same about those interior air vents though - hopefully this is not the final version.

    Re: 2013 Cayman/Boxster-Spy Shots

    It's not the final version, but the entire dash design in that photo will be what it looks like. The only thing missing is the nav, some buttons, and other electrical equipment.

    Seems as if the new Boxster/Cayman will get five gauges as well. Smiley

    From what I can see, I like this interior more than that of the 991. Smiley
