Check out our post on the 2014 Porsche Cayman from the 2012 LA Auto Show.

The Porsche Cayman Turbo will be powered by a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder turbo boxer engine making 350-hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. When mated to a PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, 0 to 62 mph for the Porsche Cayman Turbo will come in 4.9 seconds.

The four-cylinder engine will eventually be offered in other Porsche models following its debut in the Cayman Turbo.

Refresher: Power for the base 2014 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.

    Another article stated this will NOT come with a MT option. I really hope that’s not true.

    So the 350hp engine will do 0-62 in 4.9 secs while the 325hp does 0-60 in 4.4 secs. Is that correct??

    Wait, what? Power/performance don’t line up vis-a-vis the existing two variants. What’s the market position? This sounds whack to me. Given how expensive and slow the S is, it at least has potential to boost the hell out of it for fantastic performance… Color me confused, but in Turbo guise at less than S prices it might be my next car.
