Test drive editor Christian Gebhardt from Sport Auto has recently tested the 2013 Porsche Cayman S at Hockenheim.

Even though Porsche says the Cayman S has a top speed of 283 km/h (176 mph), Christian was able to hit 290 km/h (180 mph) and probably could have gone all the way up to 300 km/h (186 mph). This is possible thanks to a flat six 3.4-liter engine producing 325 HP (239 kW) which sends the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds.

Basically a Boxster S coupe, the new Cayman S will go on sale next month in Europe with pricing in Germany beginning at 64,118 EUR (including VAT). United States will get the car in spring from 63,800 USD.
