What’s New for the 2016 Porsche Cayman?

The 2016 Porsche Cayman is mostly unchanged from last year’s model. Every available Cayman model is rear-wheel drive and comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission. The base, S, and GTS trims also offer the available seven-speed PDK transmission, which permits the option of switching between the automatic and manual transmission with only the push of a button. The optional PDK transmission can also switch between gears so rapidly there’s almost no interruption in power.
