Both Cayman and Cayman S got an update for the 987.2 with new engines. The Cayman S, had a further increased hp over the previous version, and the new 3.4l produces 320hp, this fitted with the right specification, both PDK and Sport Chrono Pack, translates to 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds. This was the first Cayman S to have Direct Fuel Injection (DFI), this means the air and fuel mixture is prepared all within the combustion chamber and injected directly with millisecond precision to create more power and more torque. This was also the first time the Cayman got the option for PDK alongside the 6-speed manual, which replaced the previous Tiptronic auto. You could combo PDK with the optional three-spoke sport steering wheel that had gear shifting paddles. This all leads to faster gear changing and more speed!
