NEW BOXTER AND CAYMAN ARRIVE ON LOCAL SHORES
Auto Eurokars today launched the second-generation Cayman sports coupe and Boxster roadster, in both standard and S forms.
In terms of styling, much of what’s on the new is generally evolution and subtle in visual cues, though the new designs are clearly distinguishable through its newly-designed nose and tail.
New halogen headlights, with integrated direction indicators, offer hints of those on the Carrera GT, and the new LED rear lights tapering to the outside are integrated elegantly in the remodelled bodywork.
There’s a Lights Package featuring bi-xenon headlights, dynamic cornering lights and LED day-time driving lights. Replacing the fog lamps, these light units are made up of four LEDs arranged in round light units.
Also revised is the suspension, as well as new design wheels that are half an inch wider on the previous model, in order to accommodate the larger brake system of the S-models which are now fitted on the front axle.
The mechanical highlights on these are of course the new, flat-six boxer engines as well as the incorporation of the new seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch gearbox, which replaces the Tiptronic S torque converter automatic transmission from previously.
The Cayman is now equipped with a 2.9l block developing 265bhp, an increase by 20bhp over the prior 2.7l unit. As for the Cayman S, it gets a 3.4l Direct Fuel Injection engine and turns out 320bhp, up by 25bhp from before.
Meanwhile, the Boxster’s 2.9l unit develops 255bhp, 10bhp up from the prior 2.7l model, while the 3.4l Direct Fuel Injection on the S version delivers 310bhp, up by 15bhp.
The Cayman and Boxster get 17-inch wheels, while the Cayman S and Boxster S models come with 18-inch alloy
Both variants feature the latest Porsche Stability Management (PSM) which now offers two new functions: Brake Pre-Loading and the Brake Assistant, and a new CDR-30 CD radio audio system.
As for prices, the Cayman goes for RM556,000, while the Cayman S is RM668,000, and the Boxster and Boxster S models go for RM515,000 and RM612,000 respectively, all prices on-the-road excluding road tax and insurance.
