Porsche Cayman reliability

The Porsche Cayman didn’t feature in our Driver Power 2015 owner satisfaction survey, but the brand has a good reputation for durability, which is particularly impressive when you consider that it makes sports cars. The new Cayman feels better built inside than the old model and should prove hard-wearing. You can extend the standard three-year warranty at extra cost, too.


The Cayman isn’t sold in sufficient numbers to be crash-tested by Euro NCAP, but you can expect it to be safe. The new model is 30% stronger than the old one, while the mid-engined layout means the front of the car effectively acts as one huge crumple zone. Standard safety features include six airbags, electronic stability control and traction control. And, if you’re willing to spend more money, there are plenty of optional features – such as powerful ceramic brakes – that make the Cayman even safer.
