Development of the Porsche 718 Cayman

With the Porsche 718 Cayman, they are continuing the generation change for the mid-engine sports car. Like the Porsche 718 Boxster, the two-seat mid-engine coupe is propelled by new turbo flat engines with four cylinders. In both optical and technical terms the Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman are moving closer together.

The completely re-tuned chassis, more powerful brakes and not least the emotive tone ensure agility and even more driving fun. The modified design and the enhanced interior round off the new appearance.

This corresponds to 18 kW (25 hp) more than the previous figure.

Added to this is up to 90 Nm more torque even at below 2,000 rpm. More power right from the start, more output for cornering fun.

With the new turbo engines, the coupe accelerate in record time and, thanks to Dynamic Boost, react as spontaneously as naturally aspirated engines.

Maximum speeds are 275 km/h and 285 km/h. A new feature is the Sport Mode of the PSM with extended limits for especially sporty drivers.
