2016 Porsche Cayman Redesign, Engine and Review

Spy shots of the redesigned 2016 Porsche Cayman are out and being displayed in various auto news around the world. The spy shots show the prototype undergoing a test with minimal camouflage. As expected, this is a mid-cycle refresh so we won’t see drastic changes in this release.

Based on the spy shots, we can tell that the new Cayman will get some cosmetic modification, not a big changes though. Also, there is a high possibility for additional engine option in the upcoming release.

Exterior

As the following prototype shows, the 2016 Porsche Cayman will adopt new headlights, tweaked LED daytime running lights as well as a modified front bumper. While not present on this prototype, we expected some minor tweaks to the taillights as the rear bumper and diffuser area.

From a visual standpoint, the Cayman GT4 will also be an epic improvement over the current car. It will utilize a modified front bumper with a new splitter and larger air intakes as well as new wheels, a functional rear diffuser and a huge rear wing. It will also utilize a new dual exhaust system and feature beefed up brakes and hardcore track-tuned suspension.

Alongside the new visual and aerodynamic features like the large rear wing and front splitter, we expect the Cayman GT4 to feature a stripped-down interior to save on weight. When combined with a powerplant very likely to push out in the range of 450 hp, the Porsche Cayman GT4 could quite easily rival the thrills of the latest-generation 911 GT3!

Nothing is official but previous reports have suggested the company will offer a 1.6-liter with 210 bhp (156 kW), a 2.0-liter with 286 bhp (213 kW) and a 2.5-liter unit with 360 bhp (268 kW).
