The 2017 Porsche Cayman is a great value among the luxury sports car class. Despite its relatively low price point, it's a powerful vehicle with a high-end interior that's also built to last for years. Here's what Porsche fans can expect from the 2017 Cayman.
What's New for 2017?
Though it's technically in the middle of a generation, the Porsche Cayman sees a serious refresh for 2017. While the six-cylinder engines have been replaced by a choice of two turbocharged four-cylinders, drivers will get a power boost of 25 horsepower with each (300 for the 2.0-liter version and 350 for the 2.5-liter model). Torque has also been improved, propelling the car to a zero to 60 time of four seconds. The exterior and the chassis have also received small cosmetic and functional updates.
2017 Porsche Cayman Trims and Performance
There are just two Cayman trims for this model year, the Cayman and Cayman S. The two are primarily distinguished by the 2.0-liter engine powering the base model and the 2.5-liter engine included in the Cayman S. The Cayman S also has larger alloy wheels and upgraded sports pedals. Both the Cayman and Cayman S come with a six-speed manual transmission with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic available as an upgrade. Although the Cayman has not yet been rated by the EPA, its estimated fuel economy is 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway for the base model and 20 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway for the S.
Both versions of the 2017 Porsche Cayman are well-appointed and make full advantage of the sleek, modern interior. Partial leather sport seats and automatic climate control make any ride in the Cayman a comfortable one. Technology abounds, from the six-speaker sound system to Porsche's touchscreen infotainment system with both satellite and HD radio as well as Bluetooth connectivity system. Rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors are standard. An array of a la carte options makes it easy to build the ideal Cayman for your needs.
Few entry-level luxury sports cars are more impressive than the 2017 Porsche Cayman. Kelley Blue Book named it as the sports car with the best resale value, and it was ranked among Car and Driver's 10 best sports cars overall. It's rare for a luxury car to provide this level of quality at the Cayman's price point.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Porsche Cayman invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Porsche Cayman MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
