Hot New Porsche 718 Cayman

Hot New Porsche 718 Cayman

January 24, 2018

The Porsche 718 Cayman is a powerful, fun-to-drive, two-seater sports car. Even the base model goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The┬áCayman has a top track speed of 170 mpg. Porsche didn’t make any massive changes, but there really wasn’t any need for them. If you’re in the market for a new sports car, you have got to put this one on your short list of vehicles to test drive. Here are the answers to some of the questions you may have about the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman.


Did Porsche change anything on the 2018 Cayman?


Porsche made only very minor changes to the 718 Cayman for 2018. They have expanded the list of available options. The most notable new options are a rear spoiler in gloss black and contrasting stitching and seat belt colors for a refreshing new look in the interior. They have also added a new air filter to filter the air in the car.


Is the 718 Cayman a front-wheel-drive car?


No, the 718 Cayman is actually a rear-wheel-drive coupe.


What trims are available for the 718 Cayman?


The three available 718 Cayman trim levels are the base 718 Cayman, the 718 Cayman S, and the 718 Cayman GTS.


Does the 718 Cayman come with heated, leather seats?


The standard 718 Cayman seats are partial leather. They aren’t heated, but the backrest adjustment is electric. The height and fore/aft adjustments are mechanical. Heated and ventilated leather seats are available options, though. Fully electric sport seats are also available options.

The new 718 Cayman GTS comes with Alcantara and leather seats with a stylish seam pattern and “GTS” logos. The steering wheel and gear lever are also covered in Alcantara.

Two-tone interior color schemes, contrasting seat belts and metal or wood trim options are also available.


How expensive is a 2018 718 Cayman?


A base 2018 718 Cayman starts out at $55,300. That’s a little more expensive than similar cars built by Porsche’s closest competitors. The 718 Cayman S trim has a base MSRP of $67,700. The high-performance GTS model starts out at $79,800.


What type of engine does the 718 Cayman have?


The base 718 Cayman comes with a 300-hp, 2-L turbocharged flat-four engine that produces 280 lb-ft of torque. The 718 Cayman S comes with a 2.5-L, 350-hp, turbocharged flat-four engine that produces 309 lb-ft of torque. Both can be connected to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission.

The 718 Cayman GTS comes with a 365-hp, 2.5-L turbocharged, horizontally opposed cylinder engine with direct fuel injection, VarioCam Plus, and integrated dry-sump lubrication. It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The GTS is a high-performance model that is track ready. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. If you opt for the Sport Chrono Package and Porsche Doppelkupplung, the Cayman GTS hits 60 mph in 4.1 seconds.


Is the engine in the Cayman located in the rear of the car?


The Cayman’s engine is located at the center of the car, rather than under the hood in the front or in the trunk at the rear of the car. This results in a generous amount of cargo space. There are 9.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear hatch or trunk. The “frunk,” or front trunk, offers up an additional 5.3 cubic feet of cargo room.


Does the new Cayman get good gas mileage?


The Cayman isn’t an extremely fuel-efficient car, but it isn’t really a gas-guzzler either. The base Cayman model gets 21-22 mpg in the city and 28-29 mpg on the highway. The Cayman S gets 20-21 mpg in the city and 26-28 mpg on the highway. The GTS gets 19-20 mpg in the city and 25-26 mpg on the highway.


What type of infotainment system does the Cayman come with?


A base 2018 718 Cayman comes with the Porsche Communication Management interface with a 7″ touchscreen. It includes satellite radio, HD Radio and Bluetooth connectivity with a six-speaker stereo system. It also comes with two USB ports.

Available upgrade options include Apple CarPlay, navigation, a 10-speaker Bose stereo system or 12-speaker Burmester stereo system.


Does the Cayman come with active-assist safety features?


A base 718 Cayman comes with a 4.6″ digital read-out display, front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera. Available safety upgrades include forward collision warning, forward brake assist, blind-spot monitor, lane change assist and adaptive cruise control.
