Born in Germany, engineered to thrill and driven by adrenaline, the Porsche 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster models transform otherwise everyday commutes into exhilarating drives.
The red-and-white carpark barrier squeaks as it rises. To most motorists, it marks the start of another commute.
But when in a Porsche 718 Cayman or Porsche 718 Boxster, this is no ordinary drive. The 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster are unlike any sports car you’ll ever encounter. That’s because they are Porsches.
Porsche is special because of its motorsport heritage – one constantly being filled with victories. Porsche’s sports cars are imbued with the same genes that win races.
The 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster carry these genes, too. They are built on innovation, technology and performance. But they are also driven by adrenaline.
Behind the wheel of a Porsche 718 Cayman or 718 Boxster, waiting for the carpark barrier to rise is like being on pole position on a racetrack. With your engine revving and heart rate rising, you wait for the five red lights to illuminate. When they go out, you take off.
You catch a glimpse of the Porsche 718, reflected on the side of a building’s glass walls. You notice the main headlights with integrated LED running lights and the three-dimensional tail lights. Taut and low to the ground, the Porsche 718 models are sleek and purposeful.
They are also powerful and dynamic. The 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster are both powered by a mid-mounted, turbocharged 2-litre flat-4 engine producing 300hp and 380Nm. These outputs are sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed PDK gearbox.
Both models are more powerful than their predecessors. The 718 Cayman has 25hp and 90Nm more than before, while the 718 Boxster gains 35hp and 100Nm.
In the cockpit, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system takes care of your infotainment needs.
As you grip the multifunctional GT Sports steering wheel, turn into the open road and begin accelerating, you will hear the flat-4 clear its throat. With the Sport Chrono Package, zero to 100km/h is over in 4.7 seconds. You feel the rush of endorphins. Your senses are ignited.
The thrill factor goes up several notches thanks to the Sport Chrono Package. It has been enhanced and now features a mode switch and Sport Response button.
The former lets you choose from several driving modes, while the latter maximises responsiveness for 20 seconds. It’s particularly useful when you need to overtake – in a hurry. Press it and feel your pulse race harder. Feel your breathing quicken.
Even at low speeds, the steering in the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster speaks with clarity. The communicative chassis signals that you have control. For keener drivers, there is the optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the ride height by 10mm.
In the 718 Cayman, the feel is that of a focused and balanced machine, ready to obey your every command.
With the 718 Boxster’s soft-top down, wind in your hair and exhaust notes filling your ears, the driving experience is even more adrenaline-filled.
The Porsche 718 models are able to weave design, performance and handling into a wonderful tapestry. This is what sets them apart from the rest.
Born in Germany, designed to win and engineered to thrill. And driven by adrenaline. This is what gives them the ability to take the everyday out of every day.
Go on. Give in to exhilaration. Experience the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster models at the Porsche Centre Singapore today.
