The gorgeous new Porsche Cayman 718 has finally made it onto the market inspiring car enthusiasts worldwide to grab one of their own or start shopping for Porsche performance products to upgrade their currently owned models. Whether you’re looking for aesthetic or mechanical upgrades, transforming your earlier generation Porsche classic is as easy as selecting your desired upgrade off a service list.
What’s So Special About the Cayman 718 anyway?
The streamlined chassis, memorable design and improvements in comfort and assistance systems made to put a glint in your eye. But over and above undeniably appealing aggressive face, the new 718 Cayman and Boxster bring a real fight to the Cayman family. They boast a massive increase in power and efficiency with the new ‘flat-four’ design, described by Porsche as a, “turbocharged horizontally opposed engine”. This original orientation allows for a considerable increase in power, torque, higher engine revolutions per minute and a generally lower average consumption rate. The 2.5-liter mid-engine sings its own praises with songs of 350 horse power at 6500rpm, going 0-60 mph in 4.4sec and a max track speed of 177mph.

This software is usually built into the cars and primarily centered on the engine so a comprehensive message about everyday performance is available. These are stored as codes and, when accessed by expert mechanics, can be used to diagnosis and then fix any performance problems you may be experiencing as well as for fine tuning to get the best performance.
