A design is either fascinating or functional. The front and rear lights of the Cayman models can be both. Clear glass halogen headlights are fitted on the Cayman as standard. The Cayman S is equipped as standard with Bi-Xenon headlights while the Cayman GTS has Bi-Xenon headlights including the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). Daytime running lights and position lights are integrated in the air intakes of all Cayman models. Also standard in all Cayman models is automatic headlight activation which, depending on the ambient light conditions, automatically switches between daytime running lights and dipped beam.
LEDs provide powerful illumination, respond rapidly to driver input, are more energy efficient and have a longer service life. They are also used in the rear lights. Ensuring greater safety and creating a look that is unmistakable, day and night.
The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is standard equipment in the Cayman GTS and available as an option for the other Cayman models. It comprises Bi-Xenon main headlights with halogen auxiliary main beam headlights, a headlight cleaning system and automatic dynamic range control to provide uniform illumination of the road with both dipped or main beam. The dynamic cornering light function swivels the main headlights towards the inside of a bend based on the steering angle and road speed. In addition, PDLS adapts light distribution to suit your current driving speed. The adverse weather function is activated when the rear fog light is switched on. This provides increased safety – not least in corners and not only at night.
The optional Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) has an additional feature. Dynamic main beam control identifies the car in front as well as oncoming traffic and adapts the range of the light cone automatically to the particular situation, switching smoothly between dipped and main beam.
