Next-gen Porsche Cayman spy shots

The big sellers for Porsche may be the Cayenne and Panamera these days, but the automaker's sports cars are still a huge priority. We'll be seeing an all-new 911, dubbed 991, later this year, and judging by these latest spy shots, the smaller Cayman coupe is due for an overhaul in the not-too-distant future.

Details are slim about what we can expect with the next Cayman (and its roofless Boxster sibling), though reports have stated that the S models will be powered by a 3.4-liter flat-six, with power somewhere in the 320- to 350-horsepower range. Expect both PDK dual-clutch and manual transmissions to be offered, though it's unsure if the Cayman will get the fabled seven-speed manual 'box that will work its way into the new 911. We've even heard rumors of a Cayman Targa.

In any case, with the 911 taking much of the spotlight this year, it'll likely be well into 2012 before the next-generation Cayman hits the streets.
