2017 Porsche 718 Cayman Goes Turbo, Priced From $54,950

Dutifully following the latest Boxster, the Porsche 718 Cayman has arrived with an array of slightly new things.

As with its roadster sibling, the chief change other than the three new numbers attached to the name is the engine. New turbocharged flat-fours replace the naturally aspirated sixes in the old car, with a 2.0-liter with 300 horsepower going in the Cayman and a 2.5 with 350 in the Cayman S.

Porsche says that’s good enough to take the Cayman S from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds and up to 177 mph. The standard car is no slouch, getting to 60 in as little as 4.5 seconds and up to 170.

New brakes round out the mechanical changes, and the Porsche Active Suspension Management Sport suspension is now an option on the Cayman S. And as on the Boxster, the 718 Cayman gets catch-them-if-you-can changes over the previous model.

The 718 Cayman is on sale now, with deliveries reaching Europe this summer and the U.S. in November, with Americans being asked to shell out at least $54,950 for the base model and $67,350 for the S.
