Porsche 718 Cayman Performance
Bragging an impressive performance pedigree and razor-sharp handling, the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is a sports car in the finest form. Once you slip behind the wheel and listen to it roar through Alameda, you’ll understand why its specs place it at the top of its class. Offering two engine choices, high-powered handling technologies, and a wealth of sporty accessories, the Porsche 718 Cayman Coupe’s performance will keep you on the edge of your seat now, and years down the road.
Two Engine Options
The Porsche 718 Cayman RWD is available in two trims: Cayman and Cayman S. The base Cayman gets a 2.0L turbocharged and horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine, which generates 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Shooting for the Cayman S promises a larger, more powerful take on the base engine: a 2.5L 4-cylinder with 350 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque on tap.
Although distinctly Porsche, the 718 Cayman and 718 Cayman S are unique, and Alameda drivers should have no trouble distinguishing the two. With its smaller engine, the Cayman achieves an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway rating. Of the two, the Cayman S is the speed-demon, reaching up to 177 mph and accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds.
Standard and Optional Features
Sports car fans in and around San Jose and Alameda expect first-class handling and ride quality—and the new 718 Cayman comes prepared. Plenty of standard and optional features work in tandem to enhance the 718 Cayman Coupe’s performance, and provide you with a drive experience you won’t soon forget. Some of these features include:
- SPORT Button: Changing engine dynamics is possible with the push of a button. Go from a comfort-oriented cruise to a sporty ride by modifying throttle steering and the optional sport exhaust system.
- Porsche Stability Management (PSM): During acceleration on rugged roads, PSM works to boost traction and keep drivers in control of their vehicle.
- Optional Sport Chrono Package: Sport Chrono integrates Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS, and Individual settings for truly customized driving dynamics. Paired with the optional PDK transmission, it adds Launch Control, motorsports-inspired gear shifting, and SPORT Response.
- Optional Sport Exhaust System: The sport exhaust system includes push-button activation and sport tailpipes, which create a deep growl that announces the 718 Cayman Coupe’s presence long before it arrives.
