Porsche 718 Cayman At Napleton Westmont Porsche

The new Porsche 718 Cayman, available at Napleton Westmont Porsche, is the entry place into one of the most celebrated names in sports cars available on the road today. That's not to say it's cheap. Far from it, in fact. But the truth is it's a car that, from the turn of a key or push of a button, will put a smile on your face that will be near impossible to wipe off. 

Even in this so-called entry-level model, there still is no substitute. Let's find out why and then contact Westmont Porsche to go really in-depth on what makes the 718 Cayman so special.

What Is The Porsche 718 Cayman?

Now into its fourth-generation, the Porsche Cayman was introduced in 1996. It is a mid-engined two-seat sports coupe that is a mash-up between the second and third-generation Boxster Roadster. The car features a stylized version of the name Caiman, a member of the alligator family. As an aside, Porsche sued the Crocs company, maker of the popular rubber shoes, after they tried to name a version of their shoes Cayman as well. Porsche was granted an injunction preventing Crocs from using the name for shoes sold in Germany. 

A choice of four different engines now powers it; a pair of flat four-cylinder engines, including a 2.0-liter turbo flat-four producing 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque for the 718 Cayman and Cayman T and a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four engine making 350 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque for the more robust 718 Cayman S.

There are also a pair of naturally-aspirated flat-6 cylinder engines, including a 4.0-liter 6-cylinder producing 394 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque in the 718 Cayman GTS 4.0 and the 4.0-liter 6-cylinder making 414 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque as seen in the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4.

A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, while Porsche's stellar PDK double-clutch automatic transmission is an available option that shifts gears faster than otherwise humanly possible.

And What About The Porsche 718 Cayman Interior?

The interior of the Porsche 718 Cayman fits like a glove, even if you measure up to and sometimes over six feet tall. While the Cayman, and all Porsche vehicles, put forth the utmost in luxury performance, its interior is more business-like than other vehicles of its type. 

The traditional five-gauge array displays instruments for the driver while the bucket seats, available in various styles and colors, are there to provide lasting comfort for track day or cross-country traverses alike. A six-speaker audio system is standard, while a 12-speaker/821-watt Burmester surround-sound audio system fills the cabin with just a little more excitement. Apple CarPlay is an available option for the Cayman.

Ala Carte

Optioning the Porsche Cayman is possible if you don't need a particular package. For instance, buyers can opt for the PDK transmission instead of the manual gearbox. The Porsche Active Suspension Management system (PASM) is also available, as is the Porsche Torque Vectoring system and the Sport Chrono package. Check closely, though, as there may be added savings by purchasing a higher-performance version of the car.
