2013 Porsche Cayman Configurator Goes Live, Pricing for Specifics to Follow
We've already seen the 2013 Porsche Cayman debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show last week, and now there's a way to configure it to your exact specifications. Porsche has officially launched an interactive configurator for the latest version of the Cayman but if you're looking for specific pricing, hang tight. At the LA Auto Show, Porsche announced that the base Cayman will cost $53,550 while the Cayman S will set you back at least $64,750. Pricing for everything in between isn't included in the configurator, however. The interactive Cayman site does give the choice of selecting which model (the Cayman or Cayman S), drivetrain (a six-speed manual with a stainless steel exhaust system or the PDK seven-speed transmission with a sports exhaust system), chassis, light, and interior configuration, as well as exterior styling cues too. You can also educate yourself on features like Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, Active Suspension Management, Porsche's Torque Vectoring system, as well as different seats, steering wheels, and the sound system. There are six different colors offered on the 2013 Porsche Cayman, including Racing Yellow and Basalt Black Metallic. For wheels, you're given the option of four different variants, all of which are 20-inches tall. After you've created the 2013 Porsche Cayman to your liking, a quick video simulates what your creation would look like navigating the streets of Los Angeles. For 2013, the Porsche Cayman offers a 2.7-liter engine rated at 275 horsepower while the 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine offers up 325 hp. Porsche estimates the base Cayman and Cayman S will be able to fling itself from 0-60 mph in 5.1 and 4.7 seconds, respectively. Fuel economy figures are expected to be in the ballpark of 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway for the base engine while the PDK checks in with 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. The 2013 Porsche Cayman will hit dealership showrooms next spring and will start at $53,550 for a base model, a $700 price bump from the 2012 model. The 2013 Porsche Cayman S will start at $64,750 which is $1,700 more than the 2012 variant. Both include a $950 destination fee. Expect a full price list to become available closer to the 2013 Porsche Cayman's launch next spring. Source: Porsche
