The Porsche Cayman is a rear mid-engined, rear wheel drive 2-seat sports car produced by Porsche AG of Germany. First launched in the 2006 model year, the Cayman is a coupe derived from Porsche's Boxster roadster.
The model name was changed in 2016 to the 718, a nod to Porsche's racing heritage that won the Targa Florio race in 1959 and 1960. Because the 718 series had lost two cylinders, going from a naturally aspirated six to a turbocharged four-cylinder, the name is meant to evoke the historic racing series that was won by a lightweight car that out maneuvered the powerful big engine cars.
The core of its performance capability is the boxer engine affording low center of gravity, positioned 12 inches behind the driver for near-perfect weight distribution. This provides extraordinary dynamic cornering and outstanding braking capabilities.
The Porsche 718 features a new horizontally-opposed flat-4 turbocharged 2.0 liter engine that produces 300 horsepower and increased low end torque. It is mated to a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.
Impressive performance figures include 0-60 miles per hour in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 170 miles per hour.
The 718 Cayman is ready to travel with a roomy interior, the latest electronic convenience and safety gear, two generous luggage compartments, and the responsiveness and handling that make driving a truly fun experience. This 718 is finished in Agate Grey Metallic with a black leather interior.
