After the first appearance of the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxter, the German carmaker Porsche followed up on us by unraveling the new Cayman at Auto China 2016 Motor show. By the looks of it, the new generation of the famous sports coupe features a cleaner and newer look as well as improvements on the performance.

The most noticeable change under the hood is the four turbocharged 2.0l “boxer” engine that delivers up to 300 horses and 380nm of torque, interestingly enough it is the first time that both Cayman and Boxter pack identical punches. Cayman is also blessed with the S version, which is powered by a 2.5l engine that increases the horsepower to 350 and the torque to 420nm. These improvements result in dynamic performance; the base Cayman with PDK and an optional Sport Chrono Package goes 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds with the top speed of 274 km/h, when the Cayman S completes the sprint in 4.2 seconds and tops at 285 km/h.



The driving performance also has been improved, considering that the new Cayman uses the previous Cayman S braking system, it has been retrofitted with 330mm brake discs at the front and 299mm mm discs at the rear. On the other hand, the S version uses the four-piston callipers of the 911 Carrera, combined with 6mm thicker brake discs.

Both 718 Cayman and 718 Cayman S are promised to be equipped with revised chassis that have been tuned for greater precision and more cornering stability, adding up to the positive sides of the mid-engined layout.

The interior features a number of improvements from the previous generation, looking modern and classy at the same time, the highlight of is a 918 inspired steering wheel. Additionally, the car is compatible with apple CarPlay, a voice controlled SatNav module and the Porsche app integration.

All in all, this new release is much anticipated by all the Porsche fans and promises to impress us all as much as 718 Boxter did.
