Over the last decade the Porsche Cayman has developed its own colt following apart from the 911. The 4th generation seeks to distinguish itself further with a new name, new motor, and more mid-engine attitude. The name 718 gives homage to the late 1950’s sports car that was equipped with a flat-four cylinder engine. The styling updates on the 718 Cayman are still in line with Porsche’s latest design language. Base price for the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is $55,300.

Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft. of torque. The higher trim Cayman S gets a 2.5 liter engine which bumps the power up to 350 horsepower and 306 lb-ft. of torque. Transmission choices are a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed PDK automatic. Gone is the 6-cylinder engine. The cabin is characterized by high build quality and a premium aesthetic.

      What's the last good porsche of this type with flat 6? Which year was it? I think sport car must sound loud. Design + Speed + Sound. U can't remove one imo. Otherwise u can get mazda mx 5, must more rational choice if u are not looking for noisy excitement.

      Can never see the boxster and cayman anything other than a hairdresser’s car. No straight man would drive a cayman.

      Does anyone know if the rear spoiler does what it's intended for? Looks awesome and was one of the coolest features on the old vw corrados.

      Lol. I hope he dumps the 5 series. New bimmers are trash (except for a few models, like the M2). Tell him to splurge a bit and get the Cayman GTS!

      Nah idk for the money I could get a Audi rs3 that is way more luxurious and faster than the 718

      True. But the Porsche (even the lowest model) is more refined than that VW. And a mid engine sports car that is RWD AND a manual is priceless. Unless you're racing your car, who cares if it's quicker?

      IF only the RS3 had a manual option....sigh. I miss my old manual S4.

      It's a new age so we can embrace it? Is that all it takes? Oh well then I'll jump right on board with the lag and the shitty sound.

      Thanks for a review that doesn't harp on the switch to 4-cylinder engines, but instead focuses on the car's many high points. My only gripe with your vid is the comment about turbo lag under 2200 rpm. With a 7600 rpm redline who, realistically speaking, aggressively drives a car like this under 2200 rpm? It's a moot point, and a silly one to make.

      The turbo lag and godawful engine noise is a huge turn-off. But I bet you next yr model will be way better. But you know every car has something wrong with it. It is hard to beat a Cayman overall in most situations.
