While the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 is just making its North American debut here at the 2012 LA Auto Show, the big news at the Stuttgart firm’s stand is the new 2014 Porsche Cayman.

The 2014 Porsche Cayman has been “re-engineered from the ground up and it is lower and longer, lighter and faster, more efficient and more powerful than ever,” Porsche said in a statement.

Power for the base Porsche Cayman comes from a 2.7 liter engine making 275-hp – allowing for a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package. The 2014 Cayman S is powered by a 325-hp 3.4 liter engine allowing for a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.4 seconds with the Sport Chrono package.

Prices start at $52,600 for the 2014 Porsche Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S. Sales start in Spring 2013.
