The Porsche Cayman has long been a favorite for driving enthusiasts wanting a true driver’s car, with no frills and with the extra rigidity which comes from having a fixed roof unlike its Boxster brethren.
However, with competing cars nipping at the tail of the Cayman, including the Subaru BRZ and Scion FRS despite their obvious power disadvantages, the Cayman is in dire need of a significant update.
If the latest news from Autonews turns out to be correct, then the 2013 Porsche Cayman (which will be almost identical to the recently updated Boxster) will debut at the upcoming 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
In addition to this information being released, the 2013 Cayman is also expected to hit global markets by the spring of next year, with a price tag most likely just below the 2013 Boxster.
No vast visual changes will be prominent on the updated Cayman, as it’ll look almost identical to the new Boxster which as we know, features a host of slight changes including the re-designed headlights and taillights.
Powering the base 2013 Porsche Cayman will be a punchy 2.7-liter flat-six engine delivering 265HP while the more expensive and more desirable S variant, will feature a 3.4-liter engine pumping out an impressive 315HP.
