New Porsche 718
Cayman adds bite
PORSCHE has unveiled the new 718 Cayman, the latest and fourth generation of the mid-engined, two-seater sports coupe with a new flat-four turbocharged Boxer engine delivering upwards of 300bhp.
Since its debut in 2005 the Cayman has earned a reputation as a driver's car among owners and fans alike.
Like the Porsche 718 Boxster, the new 718 Cayman models continue the tradition of the Porsche 718 mid-engined sports cars that won numerous races in the 1950s and 1960s, powered by four-cylinder Boxer engines.
The same new four-cylinder engines with turbocharging that first debuted in the 718 Boxster are shared with the 718 Cayman. As a result both, coupe and roadster Porsche models offer identical engine outputs for the first time.
This represents 25bhp more power compared to the previous models, with claimed fuel economy also increasing to 34.9 - 40.9 mpg combined.
Performance from the newcomers is impressive. The 718 Cayman S completes the 0-62mph sprint in 4.2 seconds.
