    Idea 718

    Idea 718

    The new Cayman is the sequel that continues the 718 era. At their heart, a four-cylinder turbocharged boxer engine beats with the same fighting spirit that delivered countless podium finishes. In them lives the will to break away from standards. And to inspire conviction. So it is entirely appropriate that they, too, should bear these three digits in their name and carry the 718 legend forward.

    The new 718 models were made for the sport of it. They are mid-engined roadsters that unite the sporting spirit of the legendary Porsche 718 with the sports car of tomorrow – and transfer it to the roads of today’s world. With one goal: to take the everyday out of every day.

    Compared with the previous models, the result is a new, decidedly more striking design, an even sportier chassis setup and a host of new performance, comfort and assistance systems. And, of course, up to 350 units of turbocharged horsepower. Only one question remains unanswered: what are you still waiting for?

    The new 718 Cayman. For the sport of it.

    The principle of the mid-engined sport car

    The principle of the mid-engined sport car

    What is it that makes the new 718 models so special? Their performance, their handling, their design and the generous amount of space afforded by two luggage compartments. Above all: a mid-engine layout that makes all this possible in the first place.

    The engine is positioned no further than 12 in. behind the driver. Effect number one: the resounding thump on the back. Effect number two: the extraordinarily dynamic cornering capabilities, thanks to the car’s low and central center of gravity. The horizontally opposed arrangement of the engine’s cylinders also helps to reduce oscillations, which has a positive impact on smooth running. Another plus for driving dynamics: the concentrated power of the engine is transmitted directly to the rear axle.

    How do we best exploit this power? By systematically reducing the weight of the vehicle. And by optimally distributing the weight left over. The compact construction of the car as a two-seater plays an important part in this respect. And that’s without sacrifices in terms of comfort and everyday practicality.

    However, as soon as the mid-mounted engine starts, there’s really only one thing that matters: the world with its countless twists and turns. And you – right in the middle of it all.

    Character 718 Cayman

    Character 718 Cayman

    The new 718 Cayman lets its actions do the talking. Sporty actions, of course. As a corner-devouring coupé, it follows a line of its own far removed from fashion trends and four-lane arterials. In the town certainly. On the racetrack definitely. But always for the sport of it.

    It’s no wonder that the new 718 Cayman doesn’t simply carry on from where the 718 GTR Coupé in 1963 left off, but seeks instead to piece together a legend of its own. With its own mind. With sporty fighting spirit. And with every twist and turn.

    Exterior Design

    Exterior Design

    Precise, not fanciful. Self-assured, not restrained. Low, wide and sleek. The exterior design of the new 718 models ushers in a new era for the Cayman with sporty, distinctive edges and clearly defined formal contours.

    The horizontal geometry of the air intakes makes the front end appear even wider – and lends it added bite. The wings? Unmistakably Porsche. Higher than the front lid, they have been styled to give prominence to the new design of the headlight units, which lay bare their inner workings and incorporate the LED daytime running lights.

    The side profile emphasizes the midengine layout. The wheel arches are large, designed for wheels up to 20 inches in size. One thing is clear: the new 718 models were not intended for the shelter of the garage, but for the pleasure of driving. That’s precisely why the contouring on the doors purposefully directs headwind into the large air intakes on either side of the car. This provides the optimum supply of air to the new turbocharged engines, a basis for their powerful forward thrust.

    Another sporty detail: new exterior mirrors with v-shaped mirror base.

    The rear of the new 718 models is an expression of superlative sporty performance – and of the superlative performance of our designers. It is more cleanly defined, more pared back.

    And yet it’s anything but conformist. The taillights are slimline, their inner workings fashioned three-dimensionally. Four LED brake spot lights are incorporated into each of the horizontal rear light units. Between the two taillights, an accent trim makes the rear end look even wider.

    The wing above extends automatically at a speed of TBD mph, reducing lift to provide even better roadholding performance.

    Interior Design

    Interior Design

    Intuitive handling, performance-oriented ergonomics, a clean design. The interior of the new 718 models is also fully geared for sporty performance.

    A strong emphasis on the horizontal gives the new dashboard design of the 718 models a striking appearance. And that’s without sacrificing the excellent ergonomics for which Porsche is renowned: the ascending center console shortens the reach between the steering wheel and the gear lever/selector, while the clear arrangement of function buttons saves time.

    Motorsport in pure form: the new sport steering wheel is derived from the 918 Spyder. The optional GT Sport steering wheel with its smaller diameter further enhances the cockpit feel.

    The cluster of three round instruments, with the rev counter positioned in the center and flanked by a 4.6-inch color screen, is a characteristic feature.

    The new, fundamentally revised version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) features a 7-inch multi-touchscreen. With its high-quality glass surface, it is the aesthetically pleasant addition to the center console.

    All ideal prerequisites for a sporty, active lifestyle. The details? They’re down to you. Choose from a comprehensive selection of personalization options and a new range of materials and colors.

    Performance

    Creating more power is still no challenge. Not unless it's done the Porsche way. The result is an increase of up to 35 hp and 73 lb.-ft. of torque. And the fun is only just beginning.

    The newly developed four-cylinder turbocharged engines with the customary Porsche horizontally opposed arrangement will surely raise the adrenaline level of the driver. Acceleration is tremendous – even in the low rpm range. This quality is supplemented by an engine map configured to offer the rev limits typical of a sports car. This means high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output. Every drive becomes a sporting event – no matter how fast you go.

    What hasn’t changed is the vehicle’s characteristically low and central center of gravity – the very reason why Porsche mid-engined models have always been so agile. The typically resonant Porsche sound is also an intrinsic feature of the new 718 models, providing the fitting soundtrack on the way to ever new heights of performance.

    The 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine

    The standard models are equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine with direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication. The unit develops 300 hp at 6,500 rpm. Maximum torque is 280 lb.-ft. Thanks to turbocharged induction, it is available as low as 1,950 rpm and prevails until 4,500 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the new 718 Cayman accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds, reaching a top track speed of 170 mph.

    The 2.5-liter turbocharged boxer engine

    The S models draw their power from a capacity of 2.5 liters. The result is 350 hp at 6,500 rpm. The maximum torque of 309 lb.-ft. is available across an impressively wide range from 1,900 to 4,500 rpm. This engine – like the engine in the 911 Turbo – also comes equipped with variable turbine geometry (VTG). VTG provides an even more consistent delivery of power and, in turn, significantly greater driving pleasure. Propulsive potential? Top track speed is 177 mph. The S models with PDK and Launch Control complete the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 4.0 seconds.

    Turbocharger

    Turbocharger

    The displacement of the new 718 Cayman models has been considerably reduced. Nevertheless, the power output of the new engines has been significantly increased. This has been possible thanks to the turbochargers developed for the 718 models completely from scratch. The respective turbocharger is particularly compact and has been optimally adapted to the displacement and power output of the engine.

    The result could not deliver a clearer message. The extraordinarily wide torque plateau makes itself felt with each demand for throttle.

    Efficiency-enhancing technologies

    Auto start/stop switches off the engine when the driving speed falls below 4 mph, such as when you are approaching a red light. As soon as you release the clutch or depress the accelerator pedal, the engine restarts – swiftly and smoothly.

    In conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), a coasting function becomes available when the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission to avoid deceleration caused by engine braking. This way, optimum use is made of the vehicle’s momentum, enabling it to coast for longer distances.

    Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV)

    Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV)

    PTV is an optional system for enhancing driving dynamics and stability. Operating in conjunction with a mechanical rear differential lock, it works by varying the amount of torque transmitted to the rear wheels.

    When the car is driven assertively into a corner, moderate brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. Consequently, a greater amount of drive force is distributed to the outside rear wheel, inducing an additional rotational pulse (yaw movement) around the vehicle’s vertical axis. This results in a direct and sporty steering response from the turn-in point.

    At low and medium vehicle speeds, PTV significantly increases agility and steering precision. At high speeds and under acceleration out of corners, the mechanically controlled rear differential lock also acts to provide greater driving stability and traction.

    For the driver, this means strong resistance to destabilizing side forces, outstanding traction and great agility at every speed – with precise turn-in and well-balanced load transfer characteristics. What else? Tremendous fun in the corners.

    Steering

    Anyone can follow the straight and narrow. Only the corner is the true test of mettle. Only in the corner does a sport car really become a sport car. So it’s all the more important to have a chassis that can master any sporting challenge. And be a match for the high power output of the engine.

    The suspension components are for the most part made of aluminium, which keeps the vehicle weight and unsprung masses low. The wide track, long wheelbase and specific chassis construction help to deliver particularly precise and agile handling.

    Electromechanical power steering

    The direct steering system of the new 718 models has a perceptibly more immediate ratio than that of the previous models. The results are agile turn-in and an even sportier driving experience – with a customarily high level of comfort.

    Power steering Plus

    The comfort-oriented Power steering Plus is available as an option. At high speeds, the steering is as firm as you would expect. At low speeds, the steering ratio adjusts for easier maneuvering and parking.

    Sport Chrono Package

    Sport Chrono Package

    Adrenaline at the push of a button, goose bumps included: the functions of the optional Sport Chrono Package enable an even sportier tuning of the vehicle – and launch you to unprecedented sporty heights.

    What’s new is the mode switch on the steering wheel, derived from the 918 Spyder to make you feel closer to the racetrack. Without your hand leaving the steering wheel, you can choose any of four settings: Normal, SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Individual. Now you can adapt the vehicle even more to the way you want to drive.

    In conjunction with PDK, the Sport Chrono Package has three additional functions. The first is ‘Launch Control’, which can be used to achieve the best possible standing start – a racing start.

    The second function is the motorsport derived gearshift strategy. In this mode, PDK is geared up for extremely short shift times and optimum shift points for the maximum acceleration available. This combination of uncompromising and involving performance is ideal for the racetrack.

    The third function – SPORT Response – is an absolute first in the new 718 models. Pressing the button in the center of the mode switch primes the engine and transmission for the fastest possible unleashing of power. In other words, maximum responsiveness – for a period of approximately 20 seconds. A timer graphic in the instrument cluster tells you how long is left.

    Another component of the Sport Chrono Package is the stopwatch on the dashboard. The PCM is upgraded to include a performance display, enabling you to view, store and evaluate laps or other driving times.

    Dynamic transmission mounts are also part of the Sport Chrono Package. The electronically controlled system minimizes the perceptible oscillations and vibrations of the entire drivetrain and combines the benefits of a hard or soft transmission mounting arrangement to offer a sporty yet comfortable cornering experience. In short, it enhances both driving stability and driving comfort.

    Brakes

    Brakes

    In sport, performance counts. It applies to the engine and it also applies to the brakes. The new 718 models are therefore equipped with four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers.

    On the new 718 Cayman, the brake calipers come with a black finish – red on the S model. Brake disc diameters are 330 mm at the front and 299 mm at the rear.

    To make them tougher yet lighter and enable a more rapid response – even under extreme loads – the brake calipers have an enclosed monobloc construction.

    The pedal travel is short and the biting point precise. The brake discs are crossdrilled and internally vented, which helps to provide improved wet braking and optimum cooling.

    Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)

    Proven in motorsport, the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. On the new 718 models, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB have a diameter of 350 mm at the front and rear – for even more formidable braking performance.

    PCCB features six-piston monobloc aluminium fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – to provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent.

    PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Safety under high-speed braking is also improved thanks to its excellent fading stability.

    Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of a similar design and size. This results in better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.

    Rain. Fog. Darkness. Nothing that would faze a genuine athlete. That’s why all 718 models are equipped with Bi-Xenon headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights.

    At the rear, the three-dimensional design of the taillights incorporating four-point brake lights leaves a lasting impression. For powerful illumination, all functions are implemented by LED technology.

    Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)

    The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), which includes expressive four-point daytime running lights and headlight cleaning system, is available as an option. The dynamic cornering light function swivels the main headlights towards the inside of a bend, based on steering angle and road speed, so as to light up more of the road at tight bends and turns. Put simply, the road ahead is illuminated the moment you start to corner.

    LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)

    Superior safety meets sporty design in the form of optional LED headlights including PDLS Plus. In addition to being efficient and long-lasting, LED technology also creates a light very similar to daylight and thus helps to reduce driver fatigue. Optimum visibility is assured by integrated four-point daytime running lights and the headlight cleaning system.

    One special feature of PDLS Plus is the dynamic beam function. A camera detects the lights of vehicles ahead as well as those of oncoming traffic. Based on the data from the camera, the dynamic beam function then adapts the headlight range accordingly. This continuous, seamless control means that you are able to see the course of the road, pedestrians and potential hazards earlier without hindering other road users.

Once the key is validated, the door or the luggage compartment lid unlocks. The engine can then be started and switched off using the electronic ignition switch.

    Seats

    The Sport seats are comfortable and provide support even during performance driving. They come equipped with electric backrest adjustment and mechanical height and fore/aft adjustment.

    Fully electric Sport seats

    Comfort doesn’t have to be sacrificed. Neither does a sporty driving feel. The optional fully electric Sport seats offer power adjustment of seat height, backrest angle, squab angle and squab depth. Also electrically operated are the fore/aft adjustment, four-way lumbar support and even the steering column. The included memory package stores a range of settings, including the positions of both exterior mirrors and all driver’s seat and steering wheel positions.

    Sport seats Plus

    Available as an option are Sport seats Plus in leather with electric backrest adjustment as well as mechanical height and fore/aft adjustment. The side bolsters on the squab and backrest have a firmer, sportier padding and provide even better lateral support.

    Adaptive Sport seats Plus

    Available on request, adaptive Sport seats Plus reinforce the connection between sport and comfort. As an upgraded version of the Sport seats Plus, they combine all the features of the fully electric Sport seats and add power adjustment of the side bolsters on the squab and backrest.

    Seat heating and ventilation

    Seat heating is available as an option for all seats. Seat ventilation is also available on request (not for Sport bucket seats or seats with seat centres in Alcantara® or Sport-Tex) – for a pleasant and dry seating environment, even in hot weather.

    Luggage compartments and storage solutions

    A lot can be expected of a genuine sport car. The mid-engine concept of the 718 models impresses not only by delivering superbly agile driving dynamics, but also by affording two luggage compartments.

    On the new 718 Cayman models, the front luggage compartment holds 5.3 cu.ft. At the rear of the new 718 Cayman, there is space for 9.7 cu.ft. Thanks to the shelf above the engine cover, there is even enough room to accommodate the longer items of your belongings.

    In the interior, too, clever storage solutions offer plenty of space. The compartment under the armrest – when combined with the optional Porsche Connect or Porsche Connect Plus module – becomes the ideal interface between your smartphone and your 718 model. Further convenience is provided, for example, in the form of two compartments in the doors, clothes hooks on the seat backrests and two cupholders above the glove compartment.

    Adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS)

    Available as an option in conjunction with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this enhanced version of cruise control actively regulates the speed of your vehicle in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. A radar sensor scans the road ahead up to a distance of 650 ft. In addition, coasting is now possible even while adaptive cruise control is active.

    If Porsche Active Safe (PAS) detects that your vehicle is approaching the vehicle in front too quickly, the system issues an audible and a visual warning. Where necessary, this may be accompanied by a brief jolt of the brakes and the initiation of targeted braking. During this process, any braking by the driver is boosted to achieve the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.

    Lane Change Assist

    New Lane Change Assist, available as an option, uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Above a speed of 19 mph, the system issues a visual warning signal in the door mirror panel whenever a vehicle rapidly approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. In this way, Lane Change Assist improves comfort, particularly on interstates. However, the system does not actively intervene to control the vehicle and can be deactivated at any time.

    ParkAssist and reversing camera

    Featuring four inconspicuous sensors in the front and rear ends, standard ParkAssist audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected around the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone.

    The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.

    The standard reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and maneuvering. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.

    Sound Package Plus

    Sound Package Plus delivers excellent sound. It comprises eight loudspeakers with 150 watts in the new 718 Cayman. The amplifier integrated into PCM optimally adapts the acoustic pattern in the vehicle interior to the driver and passenger.

    BOSE® Surround Sound System

    Specially developed for Porsche, the optional BOSE® Surround Sound System is optimally tuned to the specific interior acoustics of the new 718 Cayman models. The audio system features 10 amplifier channels and 10 loudspeakers including a patented 100-watt active subwoofer integral to the vehicle bodyshell and produces a total output of 505 watts. This fully active system setup enables each individual loudspeaker to be optimally adapted to the vehicle interior. In short: in the new 718 models, you’re always center stage.

    Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System

    The road is perhaps the only place in the world in which you can still listen to music without disturbance. And when it’s done, it should be done right – together with the most important manufacturer of premium quality sound systems in Germany. The result is a sound performance of the highest level, specially matched to your 718 Cayman.

    The system has 12 amplifier channels with a total output of 821 watts, 12 loudspeakers including an active subwoofer with 300-watt class D amplifier, a total diaphragm surface area of more than 1,340 cm², and a frequency response of 35 Hz to 20 kHz.

    The Burmester® system uses the patented body-integral subwoofer solution. Analog and digital filters have been optimally defined for their specific installation location.

    Ribbon tweeters (air motion transformers, AMT) have been used for unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted high-frequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability.

    All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver a natural and richly textured spatial sound, even at top volume.
