The next-gen 2022 Porsche Cayman will be even more impressive. The new model has been spied during tests and we are excited about it. According to Porsche, the new Cayman will feature both hybrid and all-electric powertrain options.
That most likely includes both mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, but the all-electric version will sit on top of the range. This sporty coupe will provide a lot of power and it will arrive with an impressive acceleration. We know almost everything about this new model and we can’t wait to see it on the roads. Check it out.
New PPE Platform
According to Porsche, this brand decided to pursue hybrid and electric variants after a long-term engineering study. We expect a lot of electrified models in the future and the new 2022 Porsche Cayman is just the beginning. Porsche states that the lithium-ion battery pack is not enough advanced to provide electric versions with over 185 miles of driving range, without making drastic changes to the platform.
Because of that, Porsche worked on the plan to give its Boxster and Cayman models a pure-electric powertrain. The company’s PPE platform is the answer. This architecture can accommodate both hybrid and all-electric powertrain options. On the other hand, the next-gen Macan SUV with a hybrid drivetrain will continue to ride on the current MLB platform. However, all-electric Macan will probably deploy the PPE architecture, just like Boxster and Cayman models.
Porsche Cayman Specs
The all-new 2022 Porsche Cayman will offer both mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. These variants are reportedly in the development stage. With the latest changes, Cayman can meet the latest EU7 emissions standards. The latest stories are suggesting for Porsche to combine hybrid setups with the smaller-capacity flat-four engine.
That means you can forget about the six-cylinder gasoline engine inside Cayman and Boxster models. Cayman Hybrid and Cayman PHEV will deploy a 48V electrical system. This system comes with a disc-shaped electric motor/generator and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Like with the hybrid model, the specs of the 2022 Porsche Cayman EV variant are not available yet. Some reports are writing about Porsche’s e-volution concept. Reportedly, Cayman EV will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.3 seconds. Moreover, this model comes with a top speed of 120 mph and a driving range that is rated at around 120 miles.
A 38-kWh lithium-ion battery will be in the offer. However, the e-volution version has been introduced in 2017. Because of that, we could expect even better figures, especially when it comes to the all-electric driving range. However, we don’t know anything about charging time and some other specs.
2022 Porsche Cayman Release Date
According to the manufacturer, this new model will arrive by 2022. The forthcoming 2022 Porsche Cayman will enter the new generation with significant upgrades. Besides the new platform, we expect to see a complete exterior redesign. Of course, everyone is waiting for the official specs and pricing details. We will know more about this sporty car in the coming months.
