718 Cayman Delivers Higher Torque Numbers

Porsche Cayman

Porsche Deploying Boxster Engine in Cayman

Shortly after the 718 Boxster made its debut, Porsche has decided to implement the same engine in a redeveloped 718 Cayman. The turbocharged 4-cylinder flat engine is a 2.0L monster, developing 300 horsepower in the entry-level model. Step up to the S brand and you get a slightly larger motor (2.5L) that generates an additional 50 horses. The base model now has 280 pound feet of torque, an increase of 90 from the previous generation. The 2.5L delivers 310 pound feet, or 37 more than previously produced. The base 718 Cayman hits 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds on its way to a top track speed of 170 mph. The Cayman S knocks a half-second off the 60 mph time while generating a max speed of 177 mph. Stop by Porsche of Tucson to compare both models and pick the one that’s right for you.

New Design Delivers Aggressive Stance

The taut new design of the 718 Cayman delivers a more aggressive look than the previous model, with a sharper profile, wider front end and large cooling air intakes. Look at the new Cayman from the side and you’ll notice the pronounced wings and sills. A wider rear end and newly designed taillights round out the exterior. A three-dimensional look to the rear lights makes them appear to float in space, a design technique that makes the Cayman as unique as it is fun to drive.

PCM Now a Standard Feature

The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system is a standard feature in the 718 Cayman, delivering a 150-watt concert quality sound package, streaming Bluetooth connectivity and hands-free calling. You can add options to the PCM including Apple CarPlay and a navigation module that allows you to plan routes simply using your voice. The PCM comes with a CD/DVD drive and a hard drive that allows you to store music internally. Two SD card slots provide access for even more music, books or podcasts. Wireless Internet access is also available, turning your Cayman into a rolling hot spot.

Mid-Engine Sports Car Offers Many Advantages

Once you drive a mid-engine sports car like the Porsche 718 Cayman, you’ll come away wondering why it took you so long to become a convert. Greater handling, superior performance and even a greater cargo area thanks to an open hood and trunk compartment all add up to create something special. Head over to Porsche of Tucson and give the Cayman a test drive. Chances are you’ll end up taking one home.
