More about the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

The 2018 Porsche Cayman is the company's entry-level coupe, but don't let that fool you. This is one of the best-performing sports cars for any price, with a midmounted engine for perfect balance and a driving experience that will leave you breathless.

Porsche redesigned the Cayman last year, in tandem with its drop-top sibling, the Boxster. It got a new "718" to go along with its name, too. Visually, the car looks a lot like the previous Cayman, but there are significant changes underneath.

Most notably, the Cayman no longer has six-cylinder powerplants. Instead, it has turbocharged four-cylinders. The base model gets a 2.0-liter engine that produces 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, while the Cayman S gets a 2.5-liter engine putting out 350 hp and 309 lb-ft. Both engines can be had with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed, dual-clutch PDK automatic. Porsche tells us that the 2.0-liter car with a PDK and the Sport Chrono package will get to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and that a Cayman S will do it in 4 seconds. We managed 4.6 seconds from a Cayman S with the traditional manual. (Yes, the automatic is quicker.)

The 718 Cayman's interior is nicely set up for two. Quality, as we have come to expect from Porsche, is impeccable, and the 718 Cayman has a long list of options that allow the driver to create a cabin environment best suited to his or her tastes. The dash layout features a lot of buttons, but Porsche has grouped them logically. Like the Boxster, the 718 Cayman splits its storage space into two small trunks, offering 5.3 cubic feet of space in the nose and 4.4 behind the midmounted engine. You can pack in a lot, but large suitcases and golf clubs will need to ride in the cabin, which is obviously not ideal.

As for the driving experience, the 718 Cayman is quick, lively and electrifying to drive. Its handling is even better than it was before and its new engines have actually improved performance. Unfortunately, they're also a bit unpleasant to listen to and lack the audible thrill of the old six-cylinders. Something has been gained, but something has also been lost.

Porsche sells the Cayman in Base and S trims, the primary differentiator being the engine. Standard equipment is pretty thin compared to what other luxury sport coupes offer, but like other Porsche models, the 718 Cayman offers an extraordinarily long options list, with enough expensive goodies to literally double the price of the car. Edmunds can help find the perfect 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman for you.
