|2009 Porsche Cayman in Ruby Red Metallic|
Today let's take a look at some of the Cayman interior. I've never owned a P-car before, and probably had never even been inside one! Like any new-to-you car, it's important to get familiar with how the controls work, adjust your mirrors, and to figure out how to use all the buttons! Here's a few items that I like about the Cayman:
1: Starting in the rear trunk, (rear trunk sounds redundant, but not in a mid-engine car, because the Cayman also has a front trunk, or "frunk") we see some storage space, plus a small hatch that easily opens to reveal the oil fil and coolant/radiator fill openings. There is no dipstick on this model, so you have to check a read-out on the dash to monitor oil level. I appreciate the technology, but I think an old fashioned dipstick would be even easier.
|Below the rear hatch and the "Cayman" logo, you see the rear |
wing that is not extended. It automatically opens up at about 75 mph, or you can
extend it by pushing a button on the dash
|Also on top of the carpet covering engine you can see a little |
black net for holding down items you store back there.
|Oil and Coolant fill hatch open|
2: Moving to the passenger door:
|Passenger dash, note the trim between the beige glove box and upper dash|
|Pressing on that trim opens this door, and then you can press on the two drink symbols|
to open up the two drink holders.
|Drink holders extended!|
|Handy power port for a USB adapter|
|I'm not sure why they labelled this thing twice, maybe in case you're working|
under the dash and end up-side down somehow?
|The key goes on the left of the steering wheel, which is|
handy for jumping in while racing at LeMans, so your right hand
can start shifting!
|Here's a handy button behind the steering wheel! If you bought the optional steering wheel heater, just push the button! The dash will let you know if you've turned it on or off, just in case your hands are too cold to feel the heat I guess!|
