  1. Next year will see the introduction of the next-generation Porsche Boxster and Cayman. The new models will also boast new names; the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman. You might be wondering what the deal is with 718. Porsche didn't just pull this number out of hat. 718 is referencing the 1959 718 racecar with a mid-mounted, four-cylinder engine. When the new Boxster and Cayman are introduced, they will also have a mid-mounted, four-cylinder. But unlike the 718 racecar, the Boxster and Cayman's four-cylinder will be turbocharged. Porsche says the two models "will share more similarities than ever before," both visually and mechanically. Also, the next-generation Boxster will cost more than the Cayman. Currently, the Cayman is slightly more expensive than the Boxster. Source: Porsche Press Release is on Page 2 Boxster and Cayman to be branded as 718 model range next year Porsche's mid-engine sports cars to receive new name Atlanta, Georgia. The mid-engine sports cars from Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG will be named 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, respectively, when the models are introduced over the course of 2016. The 718 designation is a reference to the ground-breaking sports car Porsche introduced back in 1957, which achieved great success in a number of renowned car races. The 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman will share more similarities than ever before – both visually and technically. In the future, both will have equally powerful turbocharged flat-four cylinder engines. The Roadster will be positioned at a higher price level than the Coupe – as is the case with the 911 models. The 718 model range is driven by the four-cylinder concept and the history of distinguished Porsche sports cars. The latest example is the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car, which is powered by a highly-efficient, turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine. This powerplant not only helped Porsche finish first and second in the 24 hours of Le Mans, but it also helped win the manufacturer's and driver's championship titles in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) this year. With these victories, the 919 Hybrid has showcased the performance potential of future sports car engines from Porsche. History of the 718: flat-four cylinder engine has achieved many racing victories Flat-four cylinder engines have a long tradition at Porsche – and they have enjoyed incredible success. In the late 1950s, the 718 – a successor to the legendary Porsche 550 Spyder – represented the highest configuration level of the flat-four cylinder engine. Whether it was at the 12-hour race in Sebring in 1960 or the European Hill Climb Championship which ran between 1958 and 1961, the Porsche 718 prevailed against numerous competitors with its powerful and efficient flat-four cylinder engine. The 718 took first place twice between 1959 and 1960 at the legendary Italian Targa Florio race in Sicily. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1958, the 718 RSK with its 142-hp four-cylinder engine achieved a significant class victory.

  5. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com December 6, 2012 The last we heard anything about a four-cylinder for Porsche was last September when a report from Autoweek said that Porsche was working on two turbocharged four-cylinder engines for the long-rumored and now killed entry-level roadster and Boxster/Cayman. Now, a Italian automotive website is reporting that Porsche will premiere a Cayman with a turbo-four at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. 0-100.it reports the model, named the Cayman Turbo will use a 2.5L turbocharged boxer-four engine producing 350 HP and 369 lb-ft of torque, and will only come with Porsche's PDK transmission.

  7. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com November 28, 2012 When Porsche showed off the new Boxster roadster earlier this year, we knew sooner or later, a new Cayman would arrive. Today at the L.A. Auto Show, the new Cayman arrived. If you wanted to describe the design of the new Cayman to someone, just say its like a Boxster with a roof. Much like the Boxster, the Cayman uses a 2.7L flat-six producing 275 HP, while the Cayman S uses a 3.5L flat-six producing 325 HP. The run up 60 MPH takes 5.1 seconds* with the 2.7 and 4.4 seconds* with the 3.5. A six-speed manual or seven-speed PDK are your transmission choices. (*Note: 0-60 times are based on Cayman models equipped with the PDK and the Sport Chrono package.) Other changes the Cayman include the use more aluminum throughout the body, wider track, a longer wheelbase, and larger wheels. The new Cayman starts at $53,550, while the new Cayman S starts at $64,750. (Prices include $950 destination charge). It arrives at your local Porsche dealer next spring. William Maley is a staff writer for Cheers & Gears. He can be reached at william.maley@cheersandgears.com or you can follow him on twitter at @realmudmonster. Press Release is on Page 2 Los Angeles. Porsche is celebrating the world premiere of the new Cayman at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. The third generation of the Cayman, which is making its appearance before an international audience at the LA Convention Center, has been re-engineered from the ground up - it is lower and longer, lighter and faster, more efficient and more powerful than ever. The two-seat sport coupé will be launched on the market in two versions: Cayman and Cayman S. A longer wheelbase, wider track and larger wheels enhance the driving performance of the mid-engine sports car to a level without equal in its competitive class. Delivering more power with even better fuel economy than before, any of two highly efficient flat-six cylinder engines is mounted just in front of the rear axle, surrounded by its lightweight aluminium and steel body. The Cayman is powered by a 2.7-liter engine with 275 hp; with the Sport Chrono package it accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. The 3.4-liter engine in the Cayman S produces 325 hp; with PDK and the Sport Chrono package it sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. The new Cayman will arrive dealerships in Spring 2013 starting at $52,600 for the Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S, not including a destination charge of $950.
