Porsche 718 Cayman Rendered Based on the Boxster

So one day after Porsche officially introduced the new 718 Boxster, a rendering of that car’s hardtop sibling, the Porsche 718 Cayman has emerged showing precisely what you can expect from the sports coupe. And it’s not half bad.

Now you might think the designer of this rendering has been lazy as he’s only put a solid roof on the 718 Boxster and voila, here’s your Porsche 718 Cayman. But the fact of the matter is, the Cayman really is a Boxster with a metal top. That’s all there is to it. The real lazy people here are Porsche’s own designers.

Of course, this only applies to Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S models. Models that will follow those – such as GTS and GT4 – will have enough unique styling touches that they look totally different from the base models. But if that’s what you want, you are going to have wait a long time, since the normal Cayman itself is still a long way off.

Just like the Boxster, the new 718 Cayman will get a 2.0 liter turbocharged flat-four in the base model with 300hp and a 2.5 liter unit in the S model with 350 horsepower. Traditionally, the Cayman is a bit more poised and precise than the Boxster, but to be honest we prefer the open-top experience of the latter.
