Porsche Cayman Turbo to pack 350+ HP - report

 Porsche Cayman Turbo to pack 350+ HP - report
2014 Porsche Cayman 28.11.2012

Could debut in Frankfurt

Porsche just took the wraps off the redesigned Cayman, but that hasn't stopped rumors of an upcoming Turbo variant.

Slated to debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Cayman Turbo will reportedly usher in the company's four-cylinder engine. Said to displace 2.5-liters, the turbocharged boxer unit will reportedly have an output in excess of 350 HP (257 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque - 25 HP (18 kW) and 130 Nm (96 lb-ft) more than the Cayman S. The engine could be connected exclusively to a PDK transmission, so expect the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 4.9 seconds.

The engine could eventually be offered in the Boxster and 911, but nothing is official as of yet.

I already said it 2 weeks ago (Check the post about Cayman Launch), 2.5L turbo from TT-RS is going into the Cayman!

I don't think the cayman needs a turbo... The 3.8l 400hp from the new carreraS should be enought... if not, even the GT3 450hp could be even cooler than a turbo if you're so hungry for power :)

But those are much thirstier than a little 4-pot would be. Plus a turbo car can be modified up past 400bhp more easily ;-)

This is suposed to be the top model, not a 4 cylinder eco model... This is the 911 turbo of the Cayman, and the 911 turbo isn't more fuel efficient than the Carrera

OK then, how about saving weight for better cornering? A smaller, more compact engine would be better for that.

If the engine is dropped in 911, will there be a Carrera Turbo and a 911 Turbo? confused......

Why are you? The 2.5 turbo would never see fit in the 911, maybe the cayman and the boxster, but never the 911

It won't go into the 911 because the 911 will always have 6 cylinders.

I don't see them putting it into a 912 either, especially since there are now "affordable" Porsches.

Won't happen. The new 4 cylinder 2.5 will come to the facelift of the cayman in late 2015 as a replacment of the 2.7 and as a RS.
