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.

Porsche launches new 718 Boxster – Welcome (back) to the turbo-four future

Porsche replaces the flat-six set up the Boxster has housed for 20 years with a new turbocharged flat-four.
Despite the changes to its exterior being best described as subtle, the Porsche Boxster has been subjected to its most far-reaching update since making its debut 20 years ago. The adoption of four-cylinder engines will be tough for some purists to swallow, but what these new units lack in ultimate character, they make up for with scorching performance and decent efficiency.

Better still, the tweaks to the suspension and steering have made the 718 Boxster even sharper and more involving to drive. Few cars at any price are as entertaining as this mid-engined Porsche on a twisting back road. Elsewhere, the updated looks give the Boxster even more visual appeal, while the interior still sets the standard for fit and finish. The Porsche is also surprisingly practical, thanks to its roomy cabin and two spacious boots.

The new Porsche Boxster is available to pre-order now at G.T. Vehicles, contact us on 0208 838 6789 for more details.
