New 2007 Porsche Cayman

When Porsche launched the Cayman S last autumn, we all knew that the base model was coming; it was just a matter of when. With the announcement of the new wave of hardtop sports cars from Audi and BMW, the answer to this call has just come in, as Porsche has just announced it will be launching the "regular" version of the Cayman called the, um, Cayman.

The base Cayman is a de-tuned version of the Cayman S, which aims for a target audience who wish to have Cayman with less frills and a bit less go-power, but still the core performance essentials. Visually, itll be pretty difficult to spot the Cayman from the Cayman S.

Only keen eyes, or true Porsche enthusiasts will be able to point out the mildly different valance up front, which features a black lower lip as opposed to one thats body colored, a single, center-mounted trapezoidal exhaust pipe instead of the S twin circular units, and black-colored four-piston aluminum brake calipers.

The basic price in euros for the Cayman is 40,900 euros. In Germany, the vehicle costs 47,647 euros including sales tax and country-specific requirements. The Cayman is sale in the USA for 49,400 dollars (not including tax).
