Porsche Cayman’s Generations

The Porsche Cayman resembles the coupe version of the Porsche Boxter convertible. While the Porsche Boxter debuted in 1996, the Porsche Cayman debuted a decade later with the introduction of the second generation Porsche Boxter. The Porsche Cayman itself is currently in its second generation (the Porsche Boxter – in third). The generations of the combined model are as follows: from 1996 to 2004 – the first generation, from 2004 to 2012 – the second generation, and from 2012 – the third generation.
