Itís September which means weíre back in Europe to take in the hottest new reveals and concept cars. In Paris you can expect cars from your favourite luxury automakers like the new BMW 5 series sedan and X2 crossover, or the new Mercedes GLC43 Coupe or AMG GT Roadster.

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S Review
Sep 22, 2016 - 2:18 PM - by AutoGuide.com



Quote:
Porscheís 919 Hybrid race car just scored a major victory in the World Endurance Championship over the weekend at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

You donít have to like or even understand motorsports to appreciate that it takes a lot of automotive ingenuity to win a gruelling six-hour endurance race in the harsh Texas heat. The 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S are direct beneficiaries of a lot of the research and development that goes into a winning race car like the 919. These Porsches are bred from race cars, a pedigree that becomes obvious when you drive them.

This 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman boasts the biggest increase in performance a Cayman has ever seen from generation to generation, but isnít any less friendly or usable. Porsche engineers have made a ridiculous amount of enhancements and they will bore you to death with all the minutiae, but all you need to know is that it results in a dramatically better car. They looked at every single detail and didnít leave anything out.

Starting with the new engine, the 718 family is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter flat four-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. S models get an upgraded 2.5-liter unit that boasts 350 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, the smaller engine gets more boost, as the bigger one doesnít need it because of the increased displacement, and Porsche needs to save something for the upcoming 718 Cayman GTS.

Porsche doesnít like to use the word 'downsizing,' preferring the term 'right-sizing' for this engine choice because downsizing might lead people to believe that performance has decreased, when, in fact, the opposite is true.

With a more linear torque curve than the flat-sixes they replace (meaning that thereís usable power available whenever you want it), the new free-revving four-cylinder engines boast far more performance and are much more efficient. Power doesnít drop off as sharply and thereís still plenty of power available even in the higher rpm range. Turbo lag is barely evident, and the smart seven-speed PDK reacts fast enough to get you up to speed faster than youíd ever need, even without using the paddleshifters. The six-speed manual is still available, and, of course, itís still one of the best to use (much better than the Jaguar F-Typeís). Interestingly, thereís also a neat feature that if you stall, all you have to do is depress the clutch to get going again ó thereís no need to turn the
