TRACK TEST: 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S. Like the 718 Boxster, the two-seat mid-engine coupé is propelled by new turbo flat engines with four cylinders. In both optical and technical terms the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman are moving closer together. The completely retuned chassis, more powerful brakes and not least the emotive tone ensure agility and even more driving fun.
718 Cayman with two-litre, four-cylinder flat engine with turbocharging, output 300 hp (220 kW). 718 Cayman S with 2.5-litre, four-cylinder flat engine with VTG (variable turbine geometry) turbocharger and 350 hp (257 kW). This corresponds to 25 horsepower (18 kW) more than the previous figure. Added to this is up to 90 Nm more torque even at below 2,000 rpm.
With the new turbo engines, the coupés accelerate in record time and, thanks to Dynamic Boost, react as spontaneously as naturally aspirated engines. The 718 Cayman with PDK gearbox and Sport Chrono Package sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, the 718 Cayman S in 4.2 seconds. Maximum speeds are 275 km/h (170 mph) and 285 km/h (177 mph). A new feature is the Sport Mode of the PSM with extended limits for especially sporty drivers.
