Porsche followed with the Cayman (sans 'S') that has 50 fewer horsepower and is down by one gear in the manual transmission. Anticlimactic, perhaps, but significant nonetheless, as this new 'base' model puts Porsche's hottest new coupe in the hands of...

  • If Only the 'B' Stood for Outside-the-Box Thinking

    Even so, the B-Series has some advantages that may overcome the size issue for some drivers: given its size, it doesn't look like you're driving a gas hog, it feels a bit more nimble and certainly parks more easily. As for technology, there's nothing fancy here. A 4.0-litre V6 drives either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic into a relatively prosaic two-speed transfer case that offers...
