All New Porsche 718 Cayman unveiled at Beijing Motor Show

The reworked two-seat coupé benefits from many of the mid-life modifications brought to the 718 Boxster

The new Porsche 718 Cayman has been revealed at the Beijing motor show – following the recent unveiling of its mechanically identical soft-top sibling, the 718 Boxster.

The reworked two-seat coupé benefits from many of the mid-life modifications brought to the 718 Boxster, including a newly developed 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine in place of the existing model’s naturally aspirated six-cylinder unit.

Due to reach the UK in September, the 296bhp 718 Cayman is priced at £39,878, while the 345bhp 2.5-litre 718 Cayman S is pitched at £48,834, representing a respective £184 more and £51 less than the models they replace. It is the first time the coupé has been priced below the roadster, which starts from £41,739, echoing the 911 model range.

Reflecting the styling changes brought to the 718 Boxster, the 718 Cayman receives a revised front bumper featuring larger cooling ducts, a more structured shape and new indicator repeater lights.

It was quite an intimate show, with an emphasis on the best of British, and had some quite stunning examples of classic cars.

My personal classic car favourite is the Jaguar E-Type and there were lots of beautiful examples there including the original vehicle used at the model’s Geneva launch! Also, seeing an old Alfa Romeo Montreal bought a smile to my face as my father had one locked away in a garage for years when I was a child. It was his pride and joy for a long time and we still have pictures of it in the office today!

If you are a classic car collector or have a developing interest, GT [...]
