Porsche drops two cylinders, adds a turbo to the 718 Cayman (pictures)
Porsche is giving its fixed-roof Cayman the 718 treatment, much as it did the Boxster late last year.
The focal point of the new 718 Cayman is the use of a flat-four engine, instead of the traditional flat-six.
The 718 Cayman uses a 2.0-liter flat-four, good for 300 horsepower, 280 pound-feet of torque and a 4.5-second 0-60 time.
The hotter-to-trot 718 Cayman S packs a 2.5-liter unit, good for 350 horsepower, 309 pound-feet of torque and a 4.0-second 0-60 time.
The Cayman's aesthetics have been upgraded with new front and rear fasciae.
The interior features a new upper dashboard, new air vents and a 918 Spyder-style steering wheel.
The Cayman now uses Cayman S brakes, while the Cayman S gets its stoppers from the 911 Carrera.
Loads of options are available, including sport suspension and torque vectoring.
Inside, buyers can opt for navigation, Google Earth, Apple CarPlay and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity.
Both the 718 Cayman and Cayman S are technically on sale right now, but deliveries won't start until late November.
The 718 Cayman starts at $53,900, whereas the 718 Cayman S retails for $66,300.
