2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

About the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is everything an enthusiast is looking for in a luxury sports car — exhilarating performance, premium-crafted interior and first-rate reliability. The 718 Cayman is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine pumping out 300 horsepower while the Cayman S is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine pumping out 350 horsepower. True to their sportscar pedigree, both engines are mated either to a 6-speed manual transmission or Porsche’s lightning-quick PDK automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

The cabin of 718 Cayman compliments it’s exhilarating performance with intuitive features and outstanding Porsche craftsmanship. From the new sport steering wheel with its puristic design to the three round instruments with the tachometer positioned in the center, everything in the cabin is intended to put the driver first. With the appealing mix of heart-pounding performance, premium quality and exceptional pricing, the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is one of the smartest purchases you can make if you’re in the market for a luxury sports car.

Porsche 718 Cayman Comparison

When we compare the Porsche 718 Cayman and 718 Cayman S to the Corvette Grand Sport, we find the Porsche models in an unusual position — the least expensive cars of the bunch. The 718 Cayman starts at a base price of $55,300 MSRP, while the Corvette starts as low as $65,495 MSRP. We also acknowledge that for $55,000 no one wants a stripped-down car. So for the comparison below, we optioned the 718 Cayman models with a Premium Package consisting of Automatically Dimming Mirrors with Integrated Rain Sensor, 2-zone Automatic Climate Control, 14-way Power Heated and Ventilated Seats and much more. We also added some necessary center-stack options like Navigation, an upgraded Bose® Audio System, and Connect Plus which adds a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay™ complete with Google Earth Navigation, real-time traffic info, and access to your phone’s apps.

Some of these premium features, such as the outside auto-dimming mirrors and heated/ventilated front seats are not even available on the Corvette Grand Sport. Though features like a Bose® Audio System, Apple CarPlay™ and a Wi-Fi hotspot do come standard, you’ll still have a lower price tag when you add those features to the Porsche Cayman.

Porsche. There is no substitute.

It’s obvious the Corvette Grand Sport holds a performance advantage in terms of horsepower, 0-60 times and top track speed, but it also holds a substantial disadvantage in terms of weight. The Corvette is nearly 500 pounds heavier than the Porsche Cayman. That extra weight is going to affect performance under hard braking or as you turn into a high-speed corner. The 718 Cayman and 718 Cayman S are not only lighter and more agile, but also more nimble on the track. Plus they’re definitely more luxuriously equipped for your day-to-day driving experience. Not a bad combination for a Porsche that also wins on price.
