All of these make the Cayman develop an astonishing 420 hp. With this new amount of power, the vehicle can put sprint from 0-60 mph in less than 5 seconds while the top speed is electronically limited, due to the safety rules, at 155 mph.

Porsche is currently testing the first prototypes of the next generation Cayman, model that will compete with Audi’s proposed R3 , the next-gen BMW Z4 and possibly the Artega GT in Europe.

The revised Boxster should be unveiled at the LA motor show in November. This will provide the basis for the new Cayman, which should appear sometime in early 2009. Both models will receive direct-injection engine technology, seven-speed PDK gearboxes and minor interior and exterior tweaks in line with the new second-generation 997 911.

The Cayman is due in showrooms by late 2011 and known internally as 991. Porsche promises It will be "more competent, even sexier, even more unique", featuring an evolutionary design.
