2018 Porsche 718 GTS Review • 15 June 2018

Somehow, ‘bargain’ doesn’t seem such a farcical term for Porsche’s new 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS models. It isn’t the one-to-one part savings that justify the premium, however. With possible exception for the discontinued GT4, these are the finest versions of the Cayman/Boxster nameplate yet. Outside Porsche’s own stable, the 718 GTS duo out-handle and their competitors and, better still, they’re just more fun.

In the past 70 years, Porsche has built up a reputation for delivering iconic, sweet-handling sports cars, but the cheapest way into the club isn’t a 911 – and it’s not a Macan or a Panamera, either. Instead, it’s the 718 Cayman that now sits at the very bottom of Porsche’s ever-growing price list. Smaller, mid-engined and more sub...

The GT4 returns next spring, but since all my rich aunts and uncles are still fit and well, it unfortunately doesn’t enter the equation. The GTS polarises. It is expensive, it does not have a clear edge on performance, and the top-of-the-line four-cylinder unit is no more refined than the lesser engines. On the other hand it looks sexier, has a potentially higher resale value and when everything falls into place – road, traffic, attitude – the 360bhp Cayman easily matches the 444bhp 911 in grins-per-mile. Plus, as the ex-racing driver in the white example ahead is discovering, the GTS’s outright speed can easily embarrass its big brother.

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman Review • 30 December 2017

For the enthusiasts still condemning Porsche’s decision to replace its sweet six-cylinder with a turbocharged four-cylinder, we can only recommend a test drive of the new 718 Cayman. Ideological issues with the sports car’s powertrain will quickly ease as you experience an improved blend of power, precision, and poise. Porsche is not abandoning its purist audience; if anything, the Germany automaker is offering them a sharper picture of mid-engine, rear-drive, manual-shifting satisfaction. Within the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman’s price bracket, there are higher-output and more affordable (equipment-matching) sports cars, but nothing comes close to the Cayman’s balance and engagement. If you’re asking if there’s a better driver’s car , the answer is a firm, “no.” The 718 Cayman is only in its second model year since Porsche’s complete overhaul in 2016. Buyers shouldn’t anticipate any changes for another year or so, and significant ones for three to five years. Porsche products are built to last, and apart from the uncommon defect (like the early 987 generation’s IMS bearing), Caymans have proven durable even when pushed hard on a daily basis. Keep up with the maintenance and your 718 Cayman will keep up with you. Do you like driving? No, seriously…because if you do, then you should buy the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman.

It might be the cheapest, least powerful member of the Porsche convertible family, but you really shouldn’t write it off. The 718 Boxster is still a brilliant machine to drive. All of the controls are positive in your hand, so much so that you get out of every drive with a smile on your face – and your 911-owning mates won’t be able to tell the difference when they climb inside. We’d still pick the Boxster S for a bit more shove, but the simplicity of Porsche’s basic baby drop-top is alluring nonetheless.
