The Porsche Cayman gets only a few minor changes and refinements for 2008. The recommended oil-change interval has now been extended to one year or 12,000 miles, and the spark plugs are to be replaced every four years or 36,000 miles. Instrument-panel air vents in the Cayman have a new Matte Black soft-touch finish, and a Carrera Red interior is new, but the Palm Green interior is gone. Macadamia Metallic, Atlas Grey Metallic, Malachite Green Metallic, and Ruby Red Metallic are new colors for the exterior, replacing Lapis Blue Metallic, Lagoon Green Metallic, and Carmona Red Metallic.
Terrific performance; cutting-edge styling; lots of cargo space; good fuel economy; available luxury features.
The 2008 Porsche Cayman, which is closely related to the Boxster roadster, offers a sophisticated sports car experience for less money than Porsche's flagship 911. It is also more practical than most other comparable coupes, with respectable seating comfort, impressive cargo space, and surprisingly good fuel economy.
