The new Cayman S has been nominated “World Performance Car” of 2006

Stuttgart. The mid-engined coupe from Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany, which was introduced to the market last November, has been nominated “World Performance Car” of 2006. With this accolade, awarded on the occasion of the New York International Auto Show, the Cayman S left an impressive line-up of 29 competitors standing.

In the eyes of the jury, which comprised 46 international trade journalists, the Cayman S impressed with its “perfect combination of outstanding handling, looks and performance.” With the Cayman S, Porsche has very successfully filled the gap between the Boxster and the 911 Carrera. “The 295-bhp coupe combines the balance of the mid-engined Boxster with the rigidity of the 911 coupe, while the sonorous flat-six engine delivers the uninterrupted power of a middle-weight,” said the jury in its verdict.

This enthusiasm for the Cayman S, the manual version of which accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds and can reach a top speed of 275 km/h, can also be seen among customers. In the first four months since its market launch, almost 6,000 vehicles were delivered worldwide. In Germany, the Cayman S costs 58,529 Euros, including sales tax and country-specific requirements.
