Porsche fans can’t watch for September, once the reworked Cayman is placed to reach in showrooms putting on the elevated 718 moniker.
It echoes its Boxster sister car’s facelifed styling, headed up by bigger air intakes in front as well as on the trunk wheelarches, while its already excellent dynamics are enhanced with boosted braking and suspension performance.
Obviously, the primary update happens underneath the Cayman’s bonnet, which now houses a range of torquey 2. and a pair of.5-litre four-cylinder turbos instead of Porsche’s customary flat-six models.
As standard, the brand new engines are teamed having a six-speed manual gear box, and set out 296bhp and 345bhp. This leads to -62mph sprint performance of four.7 and 4.2 seconds correspondingly. Further upgrades are available within the cabin, with up-to-date multimedia and smartphone-connectivity systems.
All of this, but the cost increases by under £200, at £39,878 for that 2.-litre Cayman and £48,834 for that 2.5-litre Cayman S. That’s darn value, although even cautious utilisation of the options list could soon begin to see the cost rocket. Available extras incorporate a seven-speed dual-clutch gear box, active suspension and also the Sport Chrono pack.
