Welcome to the Club!
To answer a couple of your questions:
I think the simplest way to determine if you have TPMS
is to look at your valve stems: if they are rubber, then you don't have TPMS
; if they are metal, then you probably have TPMS
sensors. You should also be able to bring up the TPMS
screen on your info center with the control stalk, if you have TPMS
Just changing the oil will not void your warranty (at least so long as you are replacing it with a Porsche-recommended oil e.g. Mobil 1 0W-40). I'd advise keeping a record with receipts for your oil/filter purchases, etc. however, just in case.
If you do a bit of exploring, especially under Files
, and FAQ, you will find a wealth of info on just about anything you want to know about your Cayman, for example here is a link to the 2006 Owners Manual

TPMS - The T
ystem provides early warning of any drop in pressure by continuously monitoring the pressure in each tire and alerting you in the onboard computer display in the event of a pressure deficiency. It communicates the exact pressure of each tire and/or their deviation from ideal pressure. This does away with the need for regular air pressure checks at the service station, which often prove highly inconvenient.
See the TPMS FAQ
for more info.
