  1. Porsche has created an all-electric Cayman, and its called the Cayman e-volution. The car has been on display at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Porsche's home town of Stuttgart. The Cayman e-volution is a one-off and was first developed nearly 2 years ago. This car has been updated with Porsche's Turbo Charging (PTC) system. The e-volution was created wth the intention of demonstrating how electric cars can still offer sportiness, despite dynamic disadvantages such as increased weight. The Cayman e-volution has a range of around 120 miles and can reach 62mph in 3.3sec – 1.1sec quicker than the current range-topping 2.5-litre 718 Cayman S, with the quick-shifting PDK gearbox. One unusual aspect to this Cayman is the four-wheel drive system (although not to electric sports cars), the car is limited to 120mph and has a 38kWh capacity in its lithium-ion battery pack which provides a range of about 120 miles. Porsche says the car is a hint at things to come and that it offers a flavour of what to expect from its first production electric vehicle, the Mission E.

  3. New 718 GTS

    Wait for the new GT4 then
  4. Cayman 718 GTS Official Launch

    Porsche has officially announced the release of the new 718 GTS models. As we reported earlier this month, the new Cayman GTS will be powered by the same 4 cylinder turbo charged engine in the S model with a slight increase in both power and torque (360bhp and 317lbft respectively). The increased power compared with the existing 718 S has been achieved via a revised intake system and turbocharger tweaks The 718 Cayman GTS costs from £59,866 and the new car is available to order now, with the first deliveries in December. The car will come standard with a manual gearbox. Other standard equipment includes a Sport Chrono Package, torque vectoring with a mechanical limited-slip differential and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which reduces the ride height by 10mm. The maximum torque of 317lb ft is available from 1,900 to 5,000rpm. With the PDK gearbox and the launch control function of the Sport Chrono Package, the 718 GTS can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.1sec. The Cayman GTS will have a maximum speed of 180mph. The EU Combined economy is 34.4mpg, with 186g/km of CO2 emissions. The GTS notable differentiating external features are a revised front end, with black-tinted lenses over the Bi-Xenon LED headlights. At the rear, the black theme is continued on the lights and badging, with black exhaust tailpipes. The customary black GTS logos feature either side. In keeping with the usual GTS appointments there are Alcantara sections on the seats, which are electrically adjustable, along with Alcantara on the steering wheel rim, centre console and armrests. Accompanying the Cayman GTS will be a Boxster GTS and both cars are available to order in PDK dual clutch transmission.

  6. New GT4 successor "very close"

    have to say - i'm so excited about this!
  7. KDH Creative - 'Ratty Cayman'

    KDH Creative have created a rather interesting look on a Cayman using a liquid wrap and which involves several layers of a rubber based productive to provide a more lifelike look than a vinyl wrap would. The look has been combined with some classic Martini style graphics for a truly unique piece of car art.

  9. Take a closer look at this 356, nothing odd? Look again. Its looks like a 356, but just a bit wider, and much bigger wheels and a then there's that hump right behind the passenger seat... It's a 356 body that's been lengthened and widened to fit over a 987 Cayman chassis. Created by the world renowned West Coast Customs, and it's featured on this week's episode of Jay Leno's Garage. Ryan Friedlinghaus, the CEO of West Coast Customs, told Leno it took around eight months to build, and no expense was spared. All the glass had to be custom-made for this car and the bodywork is all steel. A great job by the looks and all without any fibreglass, to top it off (pun intended) it has a removable hard roof!

  11. Cayman S 3.4 engine reliability

    I've not heard of an IMS failure in a 987.1S...potential for anything to happen of course, but still i'm yet to be convinced it's a real issue.
  12. New GT4 successor "very close"

    Porsche is understood to be “very close” to making a decision to go ahead with a successor to the GT4. Porsche’s GT division brought us the 911 GT3 Touring package undoubtedly following the success of the Cayman GT4, and now we understand that something even closer to our hearts could be next. “The GT4 showed us there was demand for a pure driving Porsche with a manual gearbox,” said Frank Walliser, Porsche’s VP of Motorsport “This theme of ‘pure and simple’ is a success in other fields too, like scrambler motorbikes and single-speed bicycles. People like simplicity.” “A GT car drives like it does because all the suspension components are changed. And the investment has to be recouped with the price. You can’t downsize the idea of a GT car.” The introduction of the 718 saw Porsche dropping six-cylinder engines from the Cayman in favour of four-cylinder turbo engines. hints from Walliser that a successor to the GT4 is also likely to have six cylinders. Watch this space…. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Who is Frank Walliser? Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser joined Porsche as a mechanical engineering student in 1995. With a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering specialising in combustion engines and technology management, Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser held the position of General Manager of Motorsport Strategies at Porsche from 2003 to 2008. As the overall project manager of the 918 Spyder from November 2010, he was responsible for the development of Porsche’s ground-breaking super sports car. Porsche motorsport is familiar terrain for Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser. A native of Stuttgart, Walliser took over as the Vice President of Motorsport at Porsche on 1st October 2014. In this role, he is responsible for the worldwide GT motor racing activities for both the factory team and Porsche’s customer teams. He will also be responsible for GT production sports cars, while remaining as project manager for the 918 Spyder project.

  14. Porsche is currently finalising the new GTS models for the Cayman and Boxster. The 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS are expected to be officially unveiled later this year at the LA Motor Show on 1-10th December Both the Cayman and Boxster GTS are powered by a tweaked version of the 2.5-litre, turbocharged, flat-four engine. The motor is expected to develop 360hp, representing an increase of about 15hp over the engine found in the current Cayman S and Boxster S. Spy shots at the Nürburgring have spotted the cars being tested and sporting a new front bumper and twin central exhausts. Besides this, the GTS-spec models will also feature the traditional GTS refinements, including suspension upgrades with electronically controlled adaptive dampers and a slightly lowered ride height. Along with the PASM, both cars will also likely to get the Sport Chrono package. View full record
