With the 718 Cayman, Porsche is continuing the generation change for the mid-engine sports car. Like the 718 Boxster, the two-seat mid-engine coupé is propelled by new turbo flat engines with four cylinders. In both optical and technical terms the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman are moving closer together. The completely retuned chassis, more powerful brakes and not least the emotive tone ensure agility and even more driving fun. The modified design and the enhanced interior round off the new appearance. With the changeover in generation, the Coupé is now priced below the Roadster – similar to the 911 models.

With the debut of the new 718 Cayman, Porsche is completing the family of mid-engine sports cars. Under the shared 718 model name, Roadster and Coupé are moving closer together both technically and optically. Now, for the first time, the 718 Cayman and the 718 Boxster have engines with equal output. The four-cylinder flat engine with turbocharging in the 718 Cayman produces 220 kW (300 hp) from two litres of displacement, 18 kW (25 hp) more than in the predecessor model. The 718 Cayman S achieves 257 kW (350 hp) with 2.5 litres of displacement, similarly resulting in a power gain of 18 kW (25 hp). Another piece of good news for fans of the sport coupé: the hard-top two-seater is now priced lower than the roadsters for the first time – similar to the 911 models.

In the 718 Cayman, Porsche is using newly developed four-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging. Their power and efficiency have been increased significantly compared to the previous engines. The engines excel with more spontaneous response, free-revving properties up into the highest rpm ranges, and – not least – with their passionate sound.

To further enhance precision and lateral stability in driving performance, Porsche engineers have completely reworked the chassis of the 718 Cayman. Modification of the hydraulic vibration dampers as well as higher stabiliser and spring rates minimise pitching and rolling motions as much as possible. Porsche has implemented additional rebound buffer springs in the front axle of the conventional chassis. They reduce lifting of the front body while accelerating and lower the roll angle in dynamic cornering.

The design of the new 718 Cayman emphasises the now even closer relationship with the 718 Boxster. Apart from roof and tailgate, the two bodywork versions resemble each other optically even more closely than before – in a similar way to the 911 model line.
