The Cayman S is a more powerful and sportier Cayman, with 345bhp available in both a manual and PDK. If you choose the PDK and the Sports Chrono Pack, the Cayman S can rocket from 0-62mph in just 4.2 seconds. This is an impressive speed when you match it to the 996 Turbo which did 0-62mph in 4.1 seconds. If you really want to get the most out of the Cayman S, the Sports Chrono Package and a few other options seem necessary to get close to 911-level performance, for around £40,000 cheaper price tag.
