OFFICIAL: 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S. The same new 4-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging as in the 718 Boxster are being deployed in the 718 Cayman. As a result, coupé and roadster have an identical engine output for the first time. The entry-level version starts with 300 horsepower (220 kW) from two litres of displacement. The S model delivers 350 hp (257 kW) with a displacement of 2.5 litres. This represents 25 hp (18 kW) more power compared to the predecessor models.
The tremendous torque of the new engines in the 718 Cayman promises driving fun and agility even at low revs. The 2.0-litre engine of the 718 Cayman achieves a torque of up to 380 Nm (plus 90 Nm), which is available between 1,950 rpm and 4,500 rpm. The 2.5-litre engine of the 718 Cayman S features a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry (VTG), a technology hitherto used exclusively in the 911 Turbo. In the 718 Cayman S, the VTG charger additionally has a wastegate for the first time. It delivers up to 420 Nm (an extra 50 Nm) to the crankshaft at engine speeds between 1,900 and 4,500 rpm. For the driver this means even better torque in all engine speed ranges. The 718 Cayman with PDK and optional Sport Chrono Package sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.7 seconds. The 718 Cayman S completes this sprint in 4.2 seconds. The top speed of the 718 Cayman is 275 km/h (170 mph), and the 718 Cayman S can reach a speed of 285 km/h (177 mph).
The European market launch begins at the end of September 2016.
Porsche 718 Cayman pricing starts at 51,623 euros in Germany, and the 718 Cayman S costs from 64,118 euros, each including VAT and country-specific features.
