6-speed 2014 Porsche 981 Cayman S at the drag strip - 13.3@108
The Cayman is not a car exactly built for the strip but that is not because it is not capable. It's fairly light and with the same 3.4 liter flat-6 motor (although detuned) as the Porsche 911 Carrera it certainly is capable. This is a pretty good real world example of the 6-speed manual model showing numbers one can realistically expect on the strip. The run takes place at the PBIR (Palm Beach International Raceway) dragstrip in Florida.
The result? A 13.307 @ 108.42. That is enough trap speed for a high 12 but the 60 foot is 2.28 showing the driver is not getting the best launch. He should at least be in the 1.9X range.
Regardless, compare this 6-speed run to what Car and Driver got with the PDK version which was 12.7@111
. Additionally, put this Cayman S 6-speed manual run in perspective against the standard Cayman manual which does a 13.9 @ 102.7
