If the looks and performance of the 2013 Porsche Boxster appeal to you but its convertible soft-top does not, Porsche has you covered with the all-new Cayman.

Like the last generation Cayman, the new car is essentially a sleek coupe variant of the Boxster with a few more horsepower to boot. In the case of the new model, the Cayman and Cayman S each gain 10 horsepower over their Boxster and Boxster S counterparts. With 275 horsepower in the standard Cayman and 325 horsepower in the Cayman S, Porsche anticipates the standard car will do 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and that S models will manage the same feat in 5 seconds flat.

Unlike the last generation Cayman, the evolution of the 911 model line to that of a sporting grand touring car allows the new Cayman to really focus on its credentials as a thoroughbred sports car. Along with more power, the new Cayman also sports a longer wheelbase and wider track that provides the car with greater handling capabilities.

Of course Porsche didn’t only make the new Cayman a more focused driver’s car, it also made the car more fuel-efficient. Porsche estimates that manual transmission Cayman models will achieve 30 mpg (approximately 7.84 L/100 KM) on the highway, and that manual transmission Cayman S models will achieve 28 mpg (approximately 8.4L/100 KM) on the highway.

Porsche says that the car should reach dealerships by Spring 2013. To learn more about the all-new Porsche Cayman stop by South Centre Porsche today.

For many enthusiasts the 991-series Porsche 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S are perfect as is. Other Porschephiles need the capability of all-wheel-drive, or yearn for the wide rear end and red light band that sits pleasantly between the 911’s two taillights. For those enthusiasts Porsche is releasing the new 991-series 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4S in both coupe and convertible form in the beginning of 2013.

With a weight deduction of 143 lbs. (almost 65 kg.) over the previous 997-series 911 Carrera 4, the new model also manages to improve gas mileage over the previous Carrera 4 by as much as 16 percent. In the U.S., Carrera 4 coupes equipped with the 7-Speed PDK transmission can muster an EPA-rated 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway from the rear-mounted 350-horsepower, 3.4-liter flat six that ultimately takes the car to a top speed of 177 mph (approximately 285 km/h). The 400 horsepower 3.8-liter Carrera 4S coupe brings top speed up to 185 mph (approximately 298 km/h), and achieves a still respectable EPA-rating of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway when equipped with the PDK transmission.
