Porsche has introduced the redeveloped fourth generation mid-engine sport coupe of the Porsche 718 Cayman. The release, which comes weeks after the 718 Boxster made its official debut, does not only extend the brand’s new model series but also now has a more efficient, striking, and athletic look.
Orders for both the 718 Cayman and the 718 Cayman S are now being accepted. Market launch for the Europe market is scheduled on September 24, 2016, with the one for the China market slated for December 3, 2016.
The options available include the Porsche Torque Vectoring and the Sport Chrono Package. There is also the option which is known as the PASM that lowers the ride height by 10 millimeters with the same PASM sport suspension in S model lowering its ride height by 20 millimeters.
Similar to other sports cars from Porsche, it is possible to adjust the Sport Chrono Package through the programme switch placed on its steering wheel. While the settings in the prior model included "Normal", "Sport" and "Sport Plus", the redeveloped model now includes that "Individual" programme.
What this does is allow the individual settings that have been programmed for different systems to be called up. Since the driving performance capabilities of the 718 Cayman have been improved, there was a need to improve the brake systems.
Now stronger, it makes use of 330-millimeter brake discs on its front while the rear has 299-millimeter discs. This brake system though was the same one that was used on the Cayman S. Thus for the 718 Cayman S, it now utilizes the four-piston callipers similar to the 911 Carrera especially with the brake discs on its front axle that are thicker by 6 millimeters.
