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.
