The performance-oriented cabin brags multiple decorative schemes, as well as colors for the soft top trims. In the cockpit, Fremont and Newark drivers can unwind in sports seats with an available 18-way power-adjustment and memory feature. For added comfort in chilly weather or on long drives, heated and ventilated seats and 2-zone air conditioning can be installed. The Porsche-crested steering wheel is available in three variations: Sports, multi-function, and SportDesign, with gearshift paddles for the PDK.
With either 718 model, you’ll be treated to a wide range of standard premium amenities, including:

The new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with a 7-inch multi-touchscreen makes an appearance in all 718 trims’ cockpits, and lets drivers access Bluetooth, the optional BOSE Surround-Sound System, and an optional online navigation system.
Coupe or Convertible?
If you’re debating on which 718 model to choose, your preferred style of roof will likely be the deciding factor.
The Porsche 718 Boxster features a class-leading soft top, while the 718 Cayman offers a sweeping hardtop. If you happen to find yourself travelling through the Northern California coastline and feel like experiencing the refreshing sea-side breeze, you’ll find that Boxster’s soft top automatically opens fully in just 9 seconds at speeds of up to 31 mph.
