With the debut of the 2013 Porsche Boxster roadster earlier this year, Porsche aficionados knew it was a matter of time before news of its coupe sibling the Porsche Cayman would hit the World Wide Web. Now, we have confirmation that the 2013 Porsche Cayman will make its official debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Porsche remains firmly “no comment” on the 2013 Cayman. However, since the coupe’s based on the Boxster, we can make a few educated guesses.
The 2013 Porsche Cayman will be longer, wider, and lighter than its predecessor pictured above. Interior will be more plush than the Boxster, resembling the larger Porsche Panamera sedan. The Cayman will be borrowing heavily from the Boxster’s engine bin, powered by both a 2.7-liter and 3.4-liter flat-6 engines. Transmission choices will most likely be between a six-speed manual or Porsche’s famed PDK dual-clutch seven-speed automatic. The 2013 Porsche Cayman’s fuel economy should also match the Boxster at 20-22 mpg city/28-32 mpg highway.
The 2013 Cayman will begin to roll up at Porsche dealerships sometime late 2012 or in early 2013. The 2013 Porsche Boxster goes on sale later this month. Porsche has not released pricing on the 2013 Cayman at the time of this post.
