Ever since the 2013 Porsche Boxster debuted earlier this year, we've been wondering when its hardtop sister, the Cayman, would show up. According to Automotive News, we'll be waiting for many more months, as Porsche is reportedly set to hold off on debuting the Cayman until the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

Much like the Boxster, the big changes for the new Cayman will be a reduction in weight and a focus on better fuel economy while not sacrificing performance. We fully expect both of the Boxster's flat-six engines to carry over largely unchanged, likely putting out 265 horsepower in its base configuration and 315 hp in the Cayman S.

We ought to have the official details ahead of the car's official unveiling, but until then, buckle in – it's still a long way 'til November.

      This car is going to be much sexier than its predecessor with that new roofline. Finally it will get rid of that bubble cockpit that is awkwardly central to the car. The more "fastback" roof will make it more masculine and sporty. The Cayman has always been ok looking, but now I think it is fantastic! Can't wait to see the final renderings.

      You expect wrong. They will certainly bump the horsepower a bit for the Cayman over the Boxster. After all, they need to justify being the only car company in the world to charge more for the hard top than the convertible.

      I wish it wasn't so expensive- it should start at $40 k for the base, $47k for the S, and $55k for the R. The R also should have clser to 350-360 hp.

        Of course we would like the price to be lower for our selfish reasons, but Porsche has no reason to do that. They aren't and will likely never be a volume seller. Exclusivity promotes desire and profit. As long as they continue to be the beacon of German performance cars and they maintain the highest profit margins in the business, it's hard to fault their strategy.

      >likely putting out 265 horsepower in its base configuration and 315 hp in the Cayman S. 275HP and 325HP. After all, this is the Cayman, not the Boxster. It has to be differentiated not only with a bit of additional horsepower, but also developing it at a higher RPM. This means one can assume the Boxster Spyder will be ~330HP and the Cayman R will be 340HP if they stick to the 987's script, which is to leave a gap between the Cayman R and the 991 Carrera.

      Plus I never understood why Porsche intros the Boxster first; the Cayman is the real drivers car. Why couldn't this be introed with the Boxster? Is it really gonna be all that different?

      Clad in its black camo I thought it was one of the toyobaru triplets. Then I saw the little air vents on the side. The roofline, rear window glass and the hip swell look related. I hope the Cayman gets the boxters more Carrera GT inspired door and air inlet treatment. The fast back roofline helps get rid of the old Cayman's cuteness of the bubble roof and I think the new duct work on the boxster helps it shed the feminine flair into a more masculine and aggressive body language.
