Porsche 718 Cayman
The Cayman is a coupé derived from Porsche’s second and third generation Boxster roadster, styled in its first iteration by Pinky Lai. Cayman is an alternative spelling of caiman, a reptile in the same family as the alligator. Introduced in 2016 for the 2017 model year, the Porsche Boxster and Cayman were renamed the Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman, reviving the historic 718 moniker while switching engines from naturally-aspirated flat sixes to small-displacement flat-four turbocharged units. The new 718 Cayman was also re-positioned with an entry price lower than that of the 718 Boxster, in keeping with Porsche’s higher pricing for roadster models.
