A number of forces came together in 2012 to give the Cayman the short straw in Porsche’s sales. First was the appearance of the all-new 991-generation 911 Carrera, which pushed sales of the 911 up 31.4 percent over 2011. Second, an all-new Boxster made its debut halfway through the year, giving mid-engine Porsche buyers a newer, more luxurious option. Fans of the Cayman had to wait until the 2013 model year for the all-new car to make its debut, which it did at the L.A. Auto Show in November. Expect 2013 sales numbers for the Cayman to swell once the car goes on sale this spring.
