2017 Porsche 718 Cayman: Must Test Drive – Video

We imagine Porsche’s engineering team said something like “This will be fun!” when approaching the Cayman’s redesign. A combination of brilliant packaging (Our executive editor Brian reported that “the toolkit alone was inspiring”) and a truly compelling on-road driving experience, the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman’s direct and in-command feel reminds us of the exact reason we love pure sports cars like this. Tara, our managing editor, said, “You just feel on top of the world when you get behind the wheel,” while our content producer Rob called it a “straight-up dream car.” And while some editors complained of excessive road noise, everyone agreed the driving experience more than made up for any shortcomings — with our editor Ben calling it “THE Porsche to own.” Ben also noted it can be a “great value for a midengine vehicle” with the right options, which is true — but be careful: While the starting price is $56,350, you can easily crest $75,000 with extras. Brian summed it up best: “It’s an excellent pure sports car with very few compromises.” That’s why the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman easily earned a spot on our Must Test Drive list this year.
