Only a few days after the new Porsche Cayman made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show, rumors surface that the German sports car maker is developing a Turbo version and it will be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Porsche is yet to confirm this, but before you all get excited we have to point out that it is not full-fat turbo like you get with the 911. The car will be powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Despite having only four cylinders and a displacement of 3.5 liter, the Cayman Turbo will still sit at the top of the range, as it will have an output of 350 horsepower and over 500 Nm of torque, which is a lot. The flat-six engine in the Cayman S has 325 horsepower and only 370 Nm of torque.
That kind of power will make the Cayman seriously fast, with a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration time of slightly under five seconds with the PDK. Some day real soon Porsche may even put this four-cylinder engine in an entry-level 911.
