The new Porsche Cayman in Tacoma currently features 272 horsepower with its 2.7-liter six-cylinder engine, while the Porsche Cayman S has an upgraded 325 horsepower. Porsche is now looking into the 2014 model Cayman powered by the 911 turbo engine, a possible four-cylinder engine, and even a diesel version. Diesel is growing increasingly popular in the U.S., and now automakers are bringing their diesel powertrains onto the scene.
Currently, the new Porsche Cayenne features a diesel powertrain; a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 406 lb ft of torque. If Porsche were to put that engine in the sporty Cayman, the roadster would have a whole new level of power.
Another possibility for the new Cayman is a twin-turbo six-cylinder with a rear engine. The possible four-cylinder Cayman would not only help bring down the price, but it would also raise fuel-efficiency for the Cayman. Now that engine technology has become so advanced, two cylinders does not sacrifice as much power as it once did.
