Porsche Cayman 981 Buyer’s Guide

Porsche Cayman 981

Once the Boxster was established, it was only a matter of time before a coupé version appeared. When the Cayman was launched in 2005, it was clearly a hardtop Boxster, but by pricing it slightly higher and endowing it with fractionally more power, Porsche pitched it as an intermediate model between the Boxster and the 911.
