Cayman gets restyled front and rear bumpers among other minor tweaks; set to go on sale in late 2015 or early 2016

The facelifted Porsche Cayman, which is due to arrive in late 2015 or early 2016, has been spotted undergoing tests on public roads.

Visible in the spy shots are revisions to the front-end styling, including a restyled bumper with different air intakes, and what appear to be new headlamps.

The updates extend to the rear, where both the rear bumper and tail-lights have benefitted from tweaks. Other changes include new wing mirrors.

Currently, the Porsche Cayman costs £39,694 in standard trim. It's powered by a 2.7-litre flat-six engine that produces 271bhp and 214lb ft, which is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox. Porsche claims a 0-62mph time of 5.7sec and a top speed of 165mph.

Porsche also recently launched a flagship GTS variant, costing £55,397 and capable of 0-62mph in 4.6sec.

Our Verdict

Porsche Cayman

The two-seat Porsche coupé has a lot to live up to. Can it cope?

8 October 2014
Surely the second generation Cayman is still a new model, why the need to "facelift" it? It's a pity that Porsche didn't continue the current model for longer at a fractionally lower price instead, but I guess that is not the Porsche way. Much as I admire the firm's philosophy of continuous improvement, I'd be just a tiny bit annoyed if I'd just bought the pre facelift version.

9 October 2014
If its only a few styling revisions this won't be the Gen 2 version. That will have serious engine and suspension changes as well. Non-story at the moment.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
