2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S vs Porsche 718 Boxster S / Interior // Exterior // Drive

The same new 4-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging as in the 718 Boxster are being deployed in the 718 Cayman. As a result, coupé and roadster have an identical engine output for the first time. The entry-level version starts with 300 horsepower (220 kW) from two litres of displacement. The S model delivers 350 hp (257 kW) with a displacement of 2.5 litres. This represents 25 hp (18 kW) more power compared to the predecessor models.

The tremendous torque of the new engines in the 718 Cayman promises driving fun and agility even at low revs. The 2.0-litre engine of the 718 Cayman achieves a torque of up to 380 Nm (plus 90 Nm), which is available between 1,950 rpm and 4,500 rpm. The 2.5-litre engine of the 718 Cayman S features a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry (VTG), a technology hitherto used exclusively in the 911 Turbo. In the 718 Cayman S, the VTG charger additionally has a wastegate for the first time. It delivers up to 420 Nm (an extra 50 Nm) to the crankshaft at engine speeds between 1,900 and 4,500 rpm. For the driver this means even better torque in all engine speed ranges. The 718 Cayman with PDK and optional Sport Chrono Package sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.7 seconds. The 718 Cayman S completes this sprint in 4.2 seconds. The top speed of the 718 Cayman is 275 km/h (170 mph), and the 718 Cayman S can reach a speed of 285 km/h (177 mph).

The European market launch begins at the end of September 2016.

Porsche 718 Cayman pricing starts at 51,623 euros in Germany, and the 718 Cayman S costs from 64,118 euros, each including VAT and country-specific features.

--- Porsche 718 Boxster S 2016

This probably isn’t what Porsche wants you to notice first about the new Boxster. And it’s not likely that it will be, because it’s all but indiscernible and you’ll be too busy caning the car to be concerned with such nuance.

As before, Porsche’s new 718 Boxster initially comes in only two versions: the 300-horsepower base model and the 350-horsepower S. Either can be had with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch (PDK) automatic transmission.

Fifty horsepower is no pittance, but the difference between the base and S-model 718 Boxsters is nothing relative to the vast chasm that separates them, experientially, from their predecessors. The 718’s turbocharged flat-four powerplants, displacing 2.0 and 2.5 liters, respectively, are the headlining changes. Both yield 35 more horsepower than the 2.7- and 3.4-liter naturally aspirated flat-sixes they replace. Torque is the big story, however, increasing by 74 lb-ft on the base car and 43 lb-ft on the S.

The turbo engines’ power delivery dominates the changes in that experience. The S model torques its way out of corners with a guttural yank that seems somewhat out of character with the Boxster’s reason for existing. If this is a SPORTS car meant for driving hard then it will, by its very nature, be driven at high rpm. It’s not as if this engine won’t rev—it will, the redline is 7400 rpm (just 400 rpm lower than the old sixes)—it’s that the need to do so and the payoff are now greatly diminished. The torque peaks much lower in the rev band (at 1900 and 1950 rpm in the base and S, respectively) than it did in the six-cylinder models—where the party started above 4400 rpm in the base and 4500 in the S—and it’s so abundant even at low rpm that it changes the drivetrain’s character.
