Since its debut in 2005, the Cayman has earned a particular reputation as a driver's car. With an improved engine and sharpened chassis - Porsche believes the Cayman GTS sets a new benchmark for sporting performance. The Cayman GTS is powered by a charismatic 3.4-litre flat-six engine, based on the lump from the Cayman S - but has been refined to churn out an extra 15bhp to 340bhp and 380Nm of pulling power.

The standard fitted Sport Chrono package and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offer the driver the opportunity to modify the damper stiffness, along with subtly changing the throttle characteristics of the engine.

The Cayman GTS hits the century mark from nought in a brisk 4.6 seconds via the Launch Control function, when fitted with the optional PDK seven-speed double-clutch transmission.

With the standard manual six-speed transmission, the car continues to a top speed of 284km/h. The Euro 6 compliant Cayman GTS achieves an overall fuel consumption of 14.6km/L and 13.3km/L, when equipped with PDK and manual transmission, respectively.

Black 20-inch Carrera S alloy wheels are shot with 235/35 tyres at the front and 265/35 tyres at the rear. The ride height is lowered by 20mm when specified with a new, optional sports chassis configuration.

Finally, a powerful engine for the Cayman! It's a shame Porsche is so worried about their 'lesser' cars competing with their higher priced ones.
