Facelifted Porsche Boxster/Cayman Unleashed

Post by LhYnxz on Fri Nov 21, 2008 8:49 pm


Breaking news is that Porsche is unveiling new generation Boxster and Cayman at the 2008 Los Angeles
Auto Show. The two baby sports cars from Stuttgart receive a vast
number of improvements, including more power, plus Porsche's new
double-clutch gearbox.
A newly developed 2.9-litre boxer engine makes 255bhp (188kW) in the
Boxster and a slightly more willing 265bhp (195kW) in the Cayman.
S-badged versions arrive with a 3.4-litre Direct Fuel Injection unit
which separates further to the tune of 310bhp (228 kW) in the Boxster S
and 320bhp (235kW) in Cayman S.
Making its debut is the Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe or PDK, the
double-clutch gearbox that gives lightening quick changes with better
fuel economy. The Cayman S for example, when fitted with PDK and Launch
Control, speeds from 0 - 100km/h in 4.9 seconds, compared to a 6-speed
manual Boxster's 5.9 seconds. Fuel consumption figures are 11 percent
lower in the 2.9-litre cars than older, Tiptronic S models.






More comfortable than before, Boxster and Cayman come standard with
an MP3/CD/radio, while PCM Porsche Communication Management gives the
option of satellite navigation on top of this, controlled via a new
6.5-inch screen or voice. iPod jack and USB entry are part of the PCM
package as extra options. Just because you drive fast doesn't mean you
should get lost. Optional cooling/ heated seats are tickable on the
list.
A new suspension setup allows for greater driver control and even
better dynamics, while comfort is not compromised. Braking power is
also increased and made clever, such that the brakes "recognise" a
potential braking emergency and react by pre-loading so braking is
quicker and more effective.
These two cars, Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman, go to market in
February 2009 for European countries at 38,600 for the baseline
Boxster and 41,700 for the most affordable Cayman.
