Gaswerks Garage is pleased to present our 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman. With the new 982-generation, the marketing designation of the Cayman was changed to Porsche 718, a nod to Porsche’s racing heritage that won the Targa Florio race in 1959 and 1960. Because the 718 Cayman has lost two cylinders, going from a naturally aspirated flat-6 engine to a turbocharged flat-4 engine, the name is meant to evoke a racing series that was won by a light car which outmaneuvered the cars with more powerful engines. The timeline of the 718 release started in 2016, with first model availability scheduled for June. The 718 base models featured two new horizontally-opposed flat-4 turbocharged engines with increased torque and horsepower along with lower fuel consumption. The exterior of the 718 Cayman is very similar to the third generation, in fact more of an evolution than a redesign. The most notable changes are to the rear of the car, which now has a long black-trim bar across the rear connecting the two taillights. The headlights and bumper are also heavily reworked. On the sides, the mirrors have been redesigned, taking hue from the SportDesign mirrors on the GT3. The main change in the interior is the new PCM 4.0 infotainment system, which replaces the PCM 3.1. The steering wheel comes with a mode selector switch that includes a selection of Sports and Sports Plus driving modes, resulting in snappier throttle response at the cost of fuel efficiency. Overall, the most prominent design features remain, including large air induction ports on the side, and the prominent horizontal aluminum piece used for adding oil and coolant in the trunk. Despite the loss of two cylinders, the 718 Cayman is mechanically superior to the 981 model; acceleration is faster and steering is improved according to Top Gear and Motor Trend. The 718 Cayman was declared Motor Trend’s 2nd best Drivers car in 2017, which praised the car’s handling and throttle response. Giving the award, Miguel Cortina noted, “The suspension is just what you want to feel in a car like this—stiff, sporty, rigid. You get a very good sense of what is happening on the road.” Our Car is equipped with:
