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.
