Porsche’s 2014 Cayman can be reasonably priced | abc7.com

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — When most people think of a Porsche sports coupe, the famous 911 comes to mind. But with a base price of around $85,000 it’s hardly the most attainable car on the market.

Drop down a step on the Porsche ladder, however, and you find the more attainable Cayman, which has been redesigned for 2014.

Like the first-generation Cayman, this one’s a two-seater. And it’s also a great performer, especially when it comes to handling.

Whereas most cars have their engines in the front, and the 911 has always carried it in the rear, the Cayman is a mid-engine. That means more of the weight is toward the center for better balance.

It’s a well-balanced sports car that also has a good degree of comfort and practicality.

Luggage space is fairly plentiful with not just one trunk, but two. The mid-engine layout means space at each end for cargo. As sports cars go, it’s pretty easy to live with.

The Cayman is the lowest-priced hard-top sports car you can get from Porsche, with a base price of $52,600. That’s more than $30,000 less than the cheapest 911. But Porsche is big on options. If you fully option a Cayman, it can cost more than a 911.
