2018 Porsche 718 Cayman Test Drive Video Review

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


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.

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.
