The design of the 2006 Porsche Cayman S bears close resemblance to that of the Porsche Boxster. Many of the body panels of this two-seat coupe are exactly the same, but the round fog lamps are much more pronounced than that of the previous models. They form part of the front air intakes. Other differences include the uniquely designed side air intakes and the curved steel roof that resembles a dome. The Cayman S also features new dual sport tailpipes, curvy rear fenders and an upper windshield sill that is aerodynamic. Although the back quarter-windows retain the same shape as those of the Porsche 911, they are turned on end. The hatch contains a very steep slope and a rear wing automatically rises as soon as the vehicle hits 75 mph. The storage area located at the rear of the hatchback is 9.2 cubic feet which is twice that of the one used in the Boxster.
The strut-type suspension of the Cayman S sports contains firmer springs and dampers, and the vehicle is equipped with anti-roll bars that are thicker than in previous models. These changes and the stiffer body improve this vehicle’s road handling ability in every road condition. Although the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is a standard for the Cayman S, customers can choose to purchase the optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). The vehicle provides comfortable long-distance driving, but drivers can choose to activate the special option when they crave an adrenalin rush. Drivers only have to touch a button to activate the dynamic damper setting for true racing performance.
The six-speed manual transmission has also been enhanced for the Cayman S, resulting in a more precise and faster shift travel. If you have extra money to burn, why not opt for the five-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission system. This beauty contains innovative new hydraulic and electronic control maps that were designed specifically for this model.
