The Next-Generation Cayman is photographed on the Autobahn.
The back half of the new Cayman takes on more of a gradual slope, giving the chassis less rear overhang. The rear hatch on the new Cayman does away with the vertical steps found in the current model in favor of a flush design.
The vents allude that the Cayman will retain its mid-engine orientation, and we suspect the flat-6 to return, but with improved performance.
Mercedes to build rival to Porsche 911.
Our sources have confirmed that Mercedes-Benz is hard at work on a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe to rival the likes of the Porsche 911, Bentley Continental GT and Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Based on the next-generation SL-Class architecture, the SLC will be smaller and lighter than the luxurious 2-seat roadster.
The SLC will likely be powered by an AMG-tuned 5.5-liter V-8 engine.
It has been a while since the SLC name graced a Mercedes-Benz. The last iteration was the long-lived C107 model, which lasted from 1971 to 1981. The new SLC will borrow some styling cues from the past, though the shape appears wholly modern and less retro in spirit than the SLS AMG.
