Alfa Romeo 4C vs Porsche Cayman S [Chris Harris On Cars]

The little Alfa is flawed but dripping with character, the Cayman is close to perfection. Will the UK’s heavily crowned, bumpy roads have an effect on the outcome?

2014 Porsche Cayman S! Is the Lightest Porsche Now the Best Porsche? [Ignition Episode 73]

On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of the newest iteration of Porsche’s Cayman line, the 2014 Porsche Cayman S. After some twisty road driving, Carlos meets up with pro driver Randy Pobst at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to discuss the capabilities of the new Cayman on the track. It’s track ready, balanced, and can go from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds… but is it worth it’s fully loaded six figure price tag?

First previewed on its Boxster platform-mate, and shown at last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, the new Cayman looks more aggressive than its predecessor. From the 918 Spyder-aping looks to the scalloped air intakes on the doors to the silicone-injected hips, the car looks buffer. It’s larger, too. The wheelbase has been stretched by 2.4 inches, while the overhangs on either end have been shortened by 10mm. Overall length is only up 0.1 inch. The track has been widened 40/12mm front/rear.

2014 Porsche Cayman S Coupé

The sportier Cayman S gets a 3.4-liter flat-six delivering 321hp (325PS) for a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 5.0 sec with the manual gearbox, while the PDK does the same in 4.9 seconds and 4.7 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono package.

In the U.S., the new Cayman will hit showrooms in Spring 2013 starting at $52,600 for the Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S, excluding a destination charge of $950.

Across the pond, the Cayman is priced from £39,694  in the UK (€68,460 in Ireland), and the Cayman S from £48,783 (€84,136 in Ireland).

Toyota GT86 / Scion FR-S v Nissan 370Z v Used Porsche Cayman S - [Chris Harris on Cars]

We know it works on track, but is 200hp enough on the road? You can get a 370Z for similar money. Or a used Cayman S. If the GT 86 can do the business here, it has to be one of the great cars of 2012.
