718 EXCUSES FOR THE NEW CAYMAN
Three months after the launch of the long-anticipated 718 Boxster, Porsche Centre Singapore fi-nally completes its family of two-door mid-engined sports cars with the debut of the all-new 718 Cayman.
Launched to great fanfare in an exclusive media event at Porsche Centre Singapore, the all-new 718 Cayman was unveiled by Porsche brand ambassador and World Number One in professional women’s tennis - Angelique Kerber.
Just like the 718 Boxster, the all-new 718 Cayman is named after the Porsche 718 race car, an iconic champion that delivered countless podium finishes in the 1960s, many of them against con-siderable odds. Beneath the hood of the all-new 718 Cayman lies a heart that beats with the same fighting spirit as the legendary Porsche 718, and in it lives the same will to break with standards that inspires as much conviction as Kerber’s constant quest for excellence in her game.
The Porsche 718 model series is a continuation of the proven four-cylinder concept and the his-tory of distinguished Porsche race cars. Within this new model series, the Boxster roadster and Cayman coupé are now very much alike both from a technical and visual standpoint. For the first time ever, the two models have the same engine power levels—both are equipped with newly-developed four-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging, resulting in more power output com-bined with better fuel economy. The 718 Cayman delivers 300hp from 2 litres of engine displace-ment, and the sportier S model develops 350hp from 2.5 litres of displacement.
