Product Overview

Porsche 718 Cayman 982 is a compact sports car in production from 2016. It is available with a range of flat-4 and flat-6 engines that displaced 2.0 to 4.0 liters.
A large part of the reason that owners purchase the Porsche 718 Cayman (982) is the mid-mounted boxer engine, which has very low center of gravity, instant power response, and perfect smoothness.
Unfortunately, the 982 uses MacPherson strut front suspensions just like its 911 bigger brother.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Cayman GT4 costs around £75,000. You can then add the carbon-ceramic brakes for £5597, carbonfibre bucket seats for £3788 and the Clubsport Pack – which includes a roll cage, a 2.5kg fire extinguisher and a six-point harness – for £2778. Even at more than £85,000 the GT4 seems fine value for money.

The Cayman GT4 is a near pitch-perfect introduction to the world of the Porsche GT. Despite offering over 100bhp per litre, it is reasonably quiet, flexible and civilised. The engine is superb, a searing, soaring powerhouse that seems as surprised as you to hit its 8000rpm limiter. Grip levels on standard Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tyres are almost gratuitous.

Pros
  • Fantastic powertrain
  • Strikingly fast

2.5-litre boxer engine has ever wanted for raw performance. New intake duct and ‘optimised’ turbocharger raise its output to 361bhp – 14bhp over the £51,850 Cayman S. For manual cars, the 0-62mph time remains at 4.6sec. Top speed is nudged up to 180mph.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The steering is so well judged and so brilliantly keyed into the front axle that you guide the car instinctively from the first mile onwards. Turn-in bite is very strong, and once the nose has tucked in to a corner, the chassis feels beautifully balanced. In town and on longer runs, the ride quality is pretty civilised, despite the 20mm drop in ride height. The adaptive dampers will help in that regard, making the Cayman T a perfectly bearable everyday machine.

Pros
  • Superb handling
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Superb infotainment system
Cons
  • Lack of turbo lag
  • Unresponsive engine

The Porsche 718 Cayman is the entry point to the world of new Porsche ownership. Prices start at around £45,000, but it's one of the best handling and most accessible sports cars you can buy. The standard Cayman features a 2.0-litre turbocharged flat-four making 296bhp, and it comes with either a 6-speed manual or optional 7-speed PDK twin-clutch auto.

Pros
  • Best-in-class handling

Cons

The Porsche 718 Cayman T follows in the 911's footsteps, presented here in its purest form for ‘maximum driving pleasure’ The 718 T models (there's also a Boxster variant for those who prefer roofless thrills) offer that purer driving experience by removing things like the standard car's infotainment system and lardy metal door pulls.

Pros
  • Impressive agility

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The new Cayman GT4 has a 4.0-litre atmospheric flat-six engine that produces 414bhp and revs to an ear-piercing 8,000rpm. Maximum torque of 420Nm is actually the same as before but is developed over a much broader rev range between 5,000-6,800rpm. This is a proper Porsche GT-car engine in both feel and delivery, and it combines with the frankly brilliant six-speed gearbox to make for a quite giddy driving experience.

Pros
  • Fantastic performance

Cons
  • Not turbocharged

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
At £64,480, before options, the GTS sits at the upper end of the range, ahead of the £53,140 Cayman S. The 4.0-litre flat-six is essentially the same motor you'll find in the wonderful Cayman GT4. It will rev to 7,800rpm, develops 396bhp, 420Nm of torque and sends all of its power to the rear axle via a six-speed manual gearbox.

There are no bad choices here; all of the Cayman's engines provide plenty of muscle with flexibility, while the manual and PDK automatic transmissions are superb. Every car comes with bi-xenon automatic headlights, part-leather seats, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, an eight-speaker hi-fi and air-con.

The Cayman GTS is one of the best sports cars you can buy this side of £100,000. But if you want one, no question, you are going to have to dig deep. The best deal currently offered by Leasing.com requires an initial down payment of £7,412, then 48 monthly payments of £824.

The Porsche 718 Cayman sits in the shadow of the firm's iconic 911. It's every bit as fantastic to drive and has a similarly impressive interior. Even the entry-level 2.0-litre Cayman has 300hp and can get you from 0-62mph in just 5.1 seconds. Enthusiasts will miss the characterful howl of the old model's six-cylinder engine.

, Sport Plus and Individual drive modes that come with it. The T has plenty of torque, sure, but the rev-matching throttle blips on a downshift can become addictive. Losing the flat-six howl of old robs the Cayman of some character. Even with the T's sports exhaust, it just doesn't sound good.

The 2021 Cayman GT4 starts at $102,550, including $1,350 for destination. The standard six-speed manual transmission heightens that engagement. The Cayman's interior is definitely showing its age, though the simple arrangement of fixed buttons on the center stack makes them easy to locate while driving.

The Porsche 718 GTS feels like a standard Cayman with an extra shot of espresso. The new 4.0-liter engine is borrowed from the 718 Spyder and Cayman GT4. Porsche's PDK dual-clutch transmission is available, but I can't imagine driving one of these without the standard six-speed stick.

The Cayman T gets some standard chassis goodies that previously weren't available on the entry-level 718. It turns on a dime and the electromechanical steering system provides oodles of feedback. The T is relatively fuel-efficient, returning an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon in the city.
