2011 Porsche Cayman Interior
This interior review was written when the 2011 Porsche Cayman was new.
2011 Porsche Cayman doesn’t disappoint when it comes to luxury. Fit and finish are top notch, which gives the cabin a rich air. In addition to quality, the cabin offers a level of comfort that is uncommon for a car this size. Six footers will sit comfortably in the Cayman. Such luxury comes at a high price, however. The Cayman starts at $51,400, and if you add amenities, that price tag reaches $60,000 and up easily.
- Plenty of Porsche heritage is evident in the detailing of the Cayman's compact but well-finished and comfortable cabin, starting with the signature dash-mounted ignition to the left of the three-spoke steering wheel and lots of leather and brushed aluminum accent trim." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Rich-feeling, carefully assembled cabin materials enhance the sophisticated ambiance, but Porsche charges extra for amenities some rivals include as standard, including full leather upholstery and power seats." -- Consumer Guide
The 2011 Porsche Cayman has comfortable and supportive seating for two. Heated seats are optional and three types of sport seats are available: sport, adaptive sports and spots bucket seats, with prices ranging from $440 to $5,375 depending on the type of seat you select.
One good thing about the Cayman is the cabin is roomy enough six foot tall drivers and passengers to sit comfortably. While the driver will be comfortable, thick roof pillars may cause issues with visibility in the rear corners.
- "Cayman's low-slung cockpit is roomy enough for six-footers. The seats are exceptionally supportive during aggressive cornering, but they lack long-distance lumbar firmness. Visibility fore and aft is excellent, but the view to the rear corners is compromised by excessively thick roof pillars. Entry and exit demands some flexibility." -- Consumer Guide
The 2011 Porsche Cayman features an impressive list of standard and optional interior convenience features. The Cayman and Cayman S come standard with power windows, driver and passenger seats with electric backrest adjustment, air conditioning and a radio. Optional features include: ParkAssist, Bluetooth connectivity, heated seats, a Bose Surround Sound System, navigation and Porsche Communication Management (PCM), the central unit for audio, navigation and communication controls. These options are pricey. Together, they cost $16,610.
- "Easy-to-scan gauges with black faces on the base Cayman and satin-aluminum dials on the Cayman S well-positioned main controls and supportive bucket seats reinforce the sense of purpose in this domain." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Note that Cayman does without a spare tire, supplying instead an emergency inflation kit. Little in-cabin storage space." -- Consumer Guide
The 2011 Porsche Cayman is small, but it has a respectable amount of cargo room thanks to its mid-mounted engine. The Cayman has front and rear cargo holds that combine to create a total of 14.5 cubic feet of space. For a more practical sports car, check Corvette coupe. Its trunk provides 22.4 cubic-feet of space.
- "However, with stowage space under both the front hood and beneath the rear hatch, the Cayman has a good deal more practicality than might be apparent at first glance. Dismal cupholders aside, the only real shortcoming is that the prominent roof pillars can block sightlines to the sides or rear." -- Kelley Blue Book
