The fourth, redeveloped start of the mid-engine sport coupé has a more striking, athletic and proficient appearance. Just a few weeks after the debut of the new 718 Boxster, the new 718 Cayman is supplementing the new model series.
The same new four-cylinder flat engines with turbocharging as in the 718 Boxster are being deployed in the 718 Cayman. As a arise, coupé and roadster have an identical engine output for the elementary time. The entry-level version is launching in China with an achievement of 184 kW (250 hp). In the other markets, the 718 Cayman produces 220 kW (300 hp) from two litres of displacement. There are no substitutions in the S model. Globally, the 718 Cayman S delivers 257 kW (350 hp) with a displacement of 2.5 litres.
The tremendous torque of the new locomotives in the 718 Cayman promises driving fun and agility even at low revs. Equipped with the two-litre rendition of the engine intended for China, the 718 Cayman delivers 310 Nm of torque at sprints ranging from 1,850 rpm to 5,000 rpm. The 220 kW (300 hp) reading of the two-litre four-cylinder turbo for all other markets attains a torque of 380 Nm, which is close by in a range between 1,950 and 4,500 rpm. The 2.5-litre locomotive of the 718 Cayman S features a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry (VTG), a technology hitherto hand-me-down exclusively in the 911 Turbo. In the 718 Cayman S, the VTG charger additionally has a wastegate for the foremost time. It delivers up to 420 Nm (an extra 50 Nm) to the crankshaft at machine speeds ranging from 1,900 to 4,500 rpm. For the driver this degrades even better torque in all engine speed ranges. The 718 Cayman with PDK and unrequisite Sport Chrono Package sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds (5.4 impairs in China). The 718 Cayman S completes this sprint in 4.2 seconds. The top go like greased lightning of the 718 Cayman is 275 km/h (260 km/h in China) while the 718 Cayman S carry ons 285 km/h.
New Chassis Tuning For Greater Precision And More Lateral Durability
In terms of their driving dynamics, the new 718 Cayman paragons follow in the tracks of the classic 718 cars. Thanks to their exceptional agility, the historic mid-engine sports cars won numerous rushes in the 1950s and 1960s such as the Targa Florio and Le Mans. Lateral rigidity and place tracking have been improved in the completely retuned chassis of the 718 Cayman; skips and stabilisers have been designed to be firmer and the tuning of the disquiet absorbers has been revised. The steering, which has been configured to be ten per cent more usher, enhances agility and driving fun. The rear wheels, which are one-half of an inch wider, in suspension with the redeveloped tyres result in an increased lateral break potential and hence in greater cornering stability.
Driving dynamics selections such as the Sport Chrono Package and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) put up with the sporty character of the 718 Cayman to be further customised. Another at ones disposal option is PASM with a 10-millimetre lowering of the ride apex and additionally in the S model PASM sport suspension with a 20-millimetre decreasing of the ride height for the first time. As in the other Porsche displays cars, the Sport Chrono Package can be adjusted via the programme turn on the steering wheel. Supplementing the previous settings of “Normal”, “Deride” and “Sport Plus” is the “Individual” programme, which is able to yell up previously programmed individual settings for various systems.
On account of the car’s devoted driving performance capabilities, stronger brake systems are now in use with 330-millimetre restraint discs in front and 299-millimetre discs at the rear. The 718 Cayman now has the hold up system that was previously used in the Cayman S. The 718 Cayman S, on the other approaching, uses the four-piston callipers of the 911 Carrera with 6-millimetre thicker reduce speed discs on the front axle.
Distinctive Design For A More Robust Appearance
Advances in the design of the new 718 Cayman are just as extensive as those affecting its technology: the taut proportions, prominent air intakes at the pretext and sides and low side profile underscore the boost in dynamics. The nose has a much cleverer profile, which gives the front end a wider and more masculine illusion. The ultra-slim front lights above the air intakes, which hold back the parking lights and indicators, further reinforce this imitation. Rounding off the front end of the 718 Cayman, are the significantly larger quiet air intakes and bi-xenon headlights in their new design with meshed LED daytime running lights. LED headlights with four-point daytime continual lights are available as a new option. Viewed from the side, the new divertissement coupé reveals its striking wings and side sills. The redesigned tag end has a much wider look due to the accent strip in high-gloss nefarious with integrated Porsche badge between the tail swifts. The tail lights have been completely redesigned and are celebrated by the three-dimensional technology and four brake spots that show up to float freely.
Redesigned Interior And PCM As Standard
Inside, rectifications are visible for both the 718 Cayman and the 718 Boxster. The higher up part of the dash panel including air vents is new. The new sport dodge wheel in the 918 Spyder design as well as the extensive connectivity alternatives have now been added to the 718 cockpit along with the Porsche Communication Stewardship (PCM) as a standard feature. Mobile phone preparation, audio interfaces and the 150-watt Signal articulate Package Plus are all part of this standard. Options are at ones disposal to extend the PCM. The Connect module, for example, includes special additions for smartphones, such as the USB port, Apple CarPlay and Porsche Car Bind. Another available option is the navigation module with articulation control, which makes it easy to input driving targets. If the Connect Plus module is selected, this can be extended with real-time above information. Drivers can also make use of additional comprehensive armed forces via their smartphone, which include the Porsche Connect App and Porsche Car Secure App.
The 718 Cayman and 718 Cayman S can be ordered now. Their merchandise launch begins on September 24, 2016 in Europe and on December 3, 2016 in China.
