Sleek, sporty, and luxurious, the all-new 2014 Porsche Cayman
shares all of the Boxster's fantastic upgrades for the new model year, while getting a few of its own.
Apart from the comely new exterior, the inside of the Cayman is much-improved and updated as well, sporting Porsche's button-heavy (but straightforward) center console layout, quality leathers, and a clean, fresh design that seems several tiers higher than that of the last model's.
Mounted amidships, you'll find either a 2.7-liter, 275-horsepower flat six (Boxster) or a 3.4-liter, 325-horsepower flat six (Boxster S). In the Boxster, both engines are dynamic, though the S is well worth the price of the upgrade for the speed-hungry.
Dynamically, we expect the Cayman to be even better than the excellent Boxster
, thanks to slightly lower weight and slightly greater chassis rigidity.

Yes, it turns out the new Cayman is a 2014 model, not a 2013. That information wasn't available until after we shot this video.
