2010 Porsche Cayman review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Porsche’s most affordable car, the Cayman, and its roadster counterpart, the Boxster, compete with the Audi TT, BMW Z4, Chevrolet Corvette and Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

New for 2010
There are no significant changes for 2010.

Exterior
The Cayman has round fog lights — the Boxster’s are rectangular — and a larger grille opening. The turn signals are incorporated into the projector-beam halogen headlight clusters.

  • Standard LED taillights
  • Optional bi-xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights
  • Optional adaptive and auto-leveling headlights

Interior
The Cayman received an updated communication management option last year that controls the audio, communication and navigation systems. The upgrade included a touch-screen interface with a 6.5-inch screen.

  • Standard leather seats
  • Optional leather, simulated suede and carbon fiber trim
  • Optional heated seats include ventilation function
  • 10-speaker Bose audio system available

Under the Hood
The base engine is a horizontally opposed 2.9-liter six-cylinder with 265 horsepower. The 3.4-liter in the Cayman S generates 320 hp. Both engines are available with a manual or PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. Porsche says the Cayman S with the PDK automatic is the quickest version, able to hit 60 mph in 4.9 seconds.

  • Standard six-speed manual transmission
  • Optional seven-speed PDK automatic with manual-shift mode
  • Direct fuel injection for better performance, gas mileage
  • Optional adaptive suspension

Safety
Standard safety features include:

  • Dual front airbags
  • Side-impact airbags
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Antilock disc brakes
  • Electronic stability system

Best kept Secret, Porsche's underdog....

The 2010 Porsche Cayman is one of Porsche's best kept secrets. It doesn't have the pedigree of the Porsche 911 but it comes from the same bloodline. The Cayman is misunderstood; some may say it's not a real Porsche. Don't be fooled by 0 to 60 stats and horsepower numbers the Cayman is a real Porsche, maybe even more real than the Newer 911s. It could be an improved version of the air-cooled classic 911. Drive ten miles down a curvy road you will fall in love with the Porsche Cayman.
