2019 Porsche 718 Cayman Ratings & Reliability
Porsche's coupe version of the 718 Boxster offers 2.0- and 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines, replacing the previous six-cylinder powerplants. Both the base and S versions of the Cayman are offered with a choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission. The switch to the turbo four-cylinder means the classic Porsche six-cylinder sound is gone, but power is more readily available. Handling remains superb, with immediate response from the communicative steering and almost no body lean, making the Porsche fun to drive. The very firm ride is not overly punishing for a sports car. The front trunk and hatchback provide a surprising amount of storage space.

Porsche 718 Cayman 2018
For 2017, Porsche's coupe version of the 718 Boxster is named the 718 Cayman and offers 2.0- and 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines, replacing the previous six-cylinder mills. Both the base and S versions are offered with a choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automated manual transmission. The switch resulted in a loss of the high-revving zing but added more readily available power. Handling remains superb, with immediate responses and virtually no body lean, making it fun to drive. The firm ride is fairly compliant and not punishing for a sports car. The front trunk and hatchback provide a surprising amount of storage space.
