The Porsche 718 Cayman is offered in four different trims: base, T, S, and GTS 4.0. As the hardtop sibling of the Porsche Boxster, it retains the same ingredients that make every Porsche a joy to drive. There are powerful engines, a sublime chassis, and a driver-focused cockpit that puts everything within easy reach. A pair of turbocharged four-cylinder engines produce either 300 or 350 hp, while the GTS 4.0 cranks up the heat with its 394-hp naturally aspirated flat six. All versions come with a six-speed manual gearbox and an optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Cayman T and GTS 4.0 standard specifications include the Sport Chrono Package and a lowered PASM sport suspension.
Other specs on the Porcshe718 Cayman include front/rear parking sensors, a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen, an eight-speaker sound system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and heated seats. Not much changes as you move up the trim levels, but Porsche's vast options list can add tens of thousands to the base price, while also making the Cayman considerably more luxurious.
Depending on how much you're willing to fork out, there's no shortage of options if a stock Cayman doesn't offer enough equipment or luxury. On the base Cayman, the $2,510 Premium Package includes ventilated seats, lane-change assist, a heated steering wheel, and more. For 18-way adaptive sport seats with memory, you have to pay $3,620, while the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system adds $1,790 to the price. Navigation goes for $2,320. The Cayman S comes with all of these upgrades, too. You can have your key fob painted in your car's body color and get a leather key pouch with it for $540.
On the Cayman T, the Premium Package costs less, although it misses out on some extras like ventilated seats. This trim has access to a specific 718 T Interior Package that adds a total of $2,770 to the price. Finally, the GTS 4.0 also offers a Premium Package at $1,980, along with extras such as 911 Turbo wheels ($2,450), full bucket seats in carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic ($5,900), standalone adaptive cruise control (at $1,670, but this also requires upgrading to the PDK gearbox for an additional cost, adding up to a total of $3,730), and a heated steering wheel ($470). Most of these upgrades are available on other trims as well. Essentially, the Cayman's base price is just the starting point - 911 territory awaits if you aren't careful with the options.
