2017 Porsche 718 Cayman
Price: Starting at $53,900
Porsche’s mid-engine 2-seat coupe debuted as a 2006 model, powered by a 295-horsepower 6-cylinder engine. The redesigned 2017 model adopts the 718 Cayman name and switches exclusively to turbocharged 4-cylinder horizontally-opposed engines. A newly-developed 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque powers the 718 Cayman, and the 718 Cayman S upgrades to a 2.5-liter turbo producing 350 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque. Engine efficiency gets improved via electrical system recuperation, thermal management and auto start/stop function. The 718 Cayman body has been extensively redesigned, the chassis has been retuned and it is on sale now.
