2017 PORSCHE 718 CAYMAN SHOWN

REVIEW:

Sharing the same “718” prefix as its Boxster brother, the Cayman also shares the award as a 10Best winner. Despite more-powerful turbo fours (there is a base 300-hp 2.0-liter and a 350-hp 2.5-liter in the S) with increased torque, the legendary Porsche flat-six rasp of yore is gone—and we miss it.

The car remains perfectly poised as its predecessors. A six-speed manual is standard; a seven-speed automatic is optional. An improved infotainment system with a 7.0-inch touchscreen is standard, too.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Price-3,528,889
  • Top Speed-171 mph
  • 0-60-3.9 sec
  • Horse Power-300 hp
  • Seating Capacity-2
  • Gearboxes-6-speed, Manual, Rear Wheel Drive
  • Steering-Power steering
  • Engines-1988 cc, Petrol, 295 bhp @ 6500 RPM power

INTERIOR OF PORSHE 718 CAYMAN:

As has been well documented, there is much to love about the 718s and their Boxster/Cayman predecessors, from their excellent sightlines, cavernous (for a sports car) front and rear cargo holds, and gorgeous-in-any-color styling duo—all the stuff that has landed them spots on our 10Best list in one form or another 18 times, including our just released 2017 10Best Cars list.

Also well documented are some drivers’ vociferous objections to the new engine sound. But not all of us at C/D are in agreement; some of us, including this author, find the new engine note is sharp, unapologetic, and aggressive—perfectly in character with this example, a particularly racy runt of the 718 litter.
