2008 Porsche Cayman Review

The 2008 Porsche Cayman is available in the base model for $49,400. Powered by a 245 hp, 2.7-liter, six-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual transmission, the vehicle can make zero to sixty in 5.8 seconds and has a top track speed of 160 mph. The S model, from $58,900, features a 295 hp, 3.4-liter, six-cylinder with a six-speed manual that does 0-60 in 5.1 seconds and tops out at 171 mph.

Standard seats in the Cayman are upholstered with a leatherette finish. There's an airbag in each backrest, for upper body protection, as well as generous seat adjustment options regardless of the height of the driver. The classic Porsche instrumentation has an aluminum finish with crisp, white back-lit illumination. Digital readouts complement the usual speedometer, tachometer, and odometer functions and include such information as average fuel consumption and average speed to remaining fuel range.

The standard audio system is an AM/FM/CD unit with an option for a Bose Surround Sound System. The optional Porsche Communication management puts information and entertainment controls on the center console and integrates navigation, telephone, enhanced audio and on board computer functions in one display. The 2008 Porsche Cayman's high-resolution 5.8-inch color display is legible under all light conditions.
