Rather than continuing with the Cayman and Boxster as separate model lines of what is essentially the same car, both are now known as the 718 - in either coupe or roadster format.
The 718 is no exception to Porsche's company wide adoption of turbo charged engines, with a 2.5 litre flat 4 replacing the previous flat 6 in the Cayman S. This doesn't seem to have dented the performance, with a 177mph max and acceleration on a par with the crticically acclaimed GT4.
Styling is familiar to the 987 despite almost all the body panels being replaced, the only obvious visual clues being the additional cooling ducts for the turbo. The interior receives a neater touchscreen system, but even basics like satnav are pricey optional extras.
It may have lost two cylinders, but the 718 Cayman remains a class leading sports car, particularly with the superfast (and environmentally friendlier) PDK gearbox option.
