Overview

What's New in the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman?

Fresh from its major makeover last year, the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman sees only a few cosmetic upgrades and color choices. Later in the year, the 718 Cayman GTS is expected to make its debut. See the 2018 Porsche Cayman models for sale near you

Which 718 Cayman is the Best?

Be a royal pain at the dealer and try as many variations as you can. That means different engines, transmissions, suspensions, steering systems, exhausts, interior color schemes ... whatever. There's so much from which to choose, you owe it to yourself to have as much experience with the car as possible to make sure you order the right Cayman for you. Or just want to know what we'd get? A Cayman S with a manual transmission, PASM, the sport exhaust and one of the many snazzy colors -- silver or black is so dull!

Competition

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman vs the competition

2018 Chevrolet Corvette -- With its all-American V8 mounted up front, the Corvette is quite obviously a completely different performance animal. But the prices are comparable and so is the fun -- though admittedly of a different sort.

2018 Jaguar F-TYPE -- The F-TYPE also has its engine up front and boasts 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines, but its pricing and roadster layout are comparable to the Cayman's. It lacks the 718's precision, but boasts a flamboyant character and gorgeous styling.

2018 Audi TT RS -- Although also available in a less-extreme TTS version, the TT RS is the most performance-oriented version of Audi's 2+2 sport coupe. Engineered by Audi Sport, the same folks who produce the R8, it has a decent shot of keeping up with the Cayman.

Used Porsche 911 -- Many will argue the Cayman is, in fact, the superior driver's car, but there's also no denying the timeless appeal of the Porsche 911. They are, of course, more expensive, so at this price point you'll be considering a used one. Porsche's certified pre-owned program is quite good.
