The new breed of sports of Stuttgart is already in place. The change of direction in the industry is forcing all brands to adjust their production to be more efficient and ecological. Porsche has gone ahead of their competitors and that is why we are already seeing units that years ago were unthinkable, such as the Porsche 718 Cayman that already has price for Spain.
we Can say that the new 718 Cayman is an almost exact copy of the Porsche 718 Boxster, except for the ceiling light. Both models have major developments in this new generation. Its new features aesthetic coupled with an endless collection of new techniques and technology.
If we speak of these last, we have to talk necessarily of your new infotainment system, which Porsche called PCM (Porsche Communication Management). This includes not only conventional systems but also presents a screen completely new with enhanced features, such as WiFi access, with the possibility of downloading apps.
But it is what you don’t see what really marks this new generation of the Porsche Cayman. You must say goodbye to the engines boxer atmospheric six-cylinder. In its place is installed a block turbo four-cylinder-facing and a front of two or two and a half liters, which generates a minimum output of 300 horses.
This radical change has required to change almost all the mechanics of the 718 Cayman, including a chassis specially adapted, a set of suspensions variables, a address electro-mechanical new and a large number of settings that are intended to make us forget that time atmospheric pass.
But we’re talking about Porsche, and although its engine is four-cylinder turbo, we can not compare them with others that are already on the market. We’ve had the chance to test the new Porsche 718 Boxster and we realized that despite the loss, the sport has gained a lot of race. The same thing will happen with the Cayman.
