LOS ANGELES — The 2014 Porsche Cayman, which makes its world debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, will start at $53,550, including a $950 destination charge, reflecting a $700 price increase over the outgoing model.

The uplevel 2014 Porsche Cayman S starts at $64,750, including shipping, reflecting a $1,700 price increase over the outgoing model. Porsche says it is launching the 2014 Cayman in two versions. The outgoing lineup also included the high-end Cayman S Black Edition and the Cayman R.

The redesigned Cayman goes on sale in the spring. Porsche stopped production of the Cayman in January; there is no 2013 model.

The base 2012 Porsche Cayman starts at $52,850, including a $950 destination charge, according to the Porsche.com car configurator. The 2012 Cayman S starts at $63,050, including shipping.

The new Cayman is based on the 2013 Porsche Boxster, according to Porsche. The 2014 Cayman is "lower and longer, lighter and faster" than the outgoing version. Porsche said it expects the Cayman to deliver "more power with even better fuel economy than before." The EPA has yet to post official fuel economy numbers on the 2014 Cayman.

The 2014 Cayman is equipped with either a 275-horsepower 2.7-liter flat six-cylinder engine or a 325-hp 3.4-liter flat-6. It gets a lightweight aluminum and steel body.

Edmunds says: It will be interesting to watch whether better fuel economy numbers on the 2014 Porsche Cayman will help to offset the price increase.

  • Wow! I didn't realize Porsche wanted so much for this model...perhaps that's why you see very few of them even in a carland such as L.A.

    Edmunds, I am not sure if the first thing coming to mind about the price increase is if the money can be recouped through better FE. Most of the people buying this car have the finances to weather an increase in fuel prices before considering selling it. The leasers are focused on mileage, not FE. I personally would be worried about tire wear... at least for the back tires.

    The Porsche Cayman S being mid engined will probably have better handling then a 911. In addition being over 250 LBS lighter and having only 29 HP less the Cayman S is virtually as quick to 60 MPH and 6 MPH slower in top speed. It's also over 20 grand cheaper than a base 911 Carrera. However it does not have the 2 rear jump seats like the Carerra. I think I can make the sacrifice.

    Finally!!! The Cayman and Boxter are as beautiful as they deserve to be! I actually Like the way the side air vents look now and; I've already configured my dream Blue Cayman S on Porsche's US site! Now, for the full reviews! My finger's are crossed that the steering is not messed up because it's either gonna be a 2014 Cayman S or a 911S which should be at around the same price in 6 months. "Edmunds says: It will be interesting to watch whether better fuel economy numbers on the 2014 Porsche Cayman will help to offset the price increase." ??? Marginal fuel economy improvements are the Least of concerns or interests for this car. THE Big questions are, will the Cayman finally eclipse the 911?? Is this Cayman S better than the current 991 911S and/or 997b 911S??

    As the Cayman's exterior starts elegantly blend sportiness and maturity, its performance continues to improve and its interior becomes even more luxurious, soon one has to start asking the question if the Cayman S is making the M3 irrelevant?

    Either a well optioned year old 2014 Cayman S for $60K or a (2009-2011) 997b 911S for $55k? That is the question I'll be contemplating for the next year or so.

    $54K and about the same power as a Camry. When will they stop holding this car back?
