2021 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 PDK review

2021 Targa Tasmania: It’s bloody wonderful but not without its dangers

Video: 2021 Porsche Cayman 718 GT4 Review

The perfect Porsche? I know what you're thinking. How is a 718 Cayman the perfect Porsche? I mean, this is a 982, not a 992. And when you consider that when the 718 launched, it was hardly met with huge fan praise because they swapped out the traditional flat-six for a turbocharged four. Although, that's not a problem we're faced with in this car...

2019 Porsche Cayman GT4 review

As far as ‘pure’ sports cars go, the Cayman GT4 - unfettered by technological burden and devoid of an engine behind the rear axle - might in fact be the best that Porsche has to offer. It’s ballistically quick, and crucially easier to drive at nine-tenths than a 911, and it’s so bloody capable on track, you’ll fall in love with it more each lap...

2018 Jaguar F-Type 2.0 auto v Porsche 718 Cayman PDK

We’ve been here before with Jaguar and Porsche’s compact sports cars. Germany won the first couple of CarAdvice battles, when the Boxster S pipped the F-Type V6 S convertible in 2013 and the Cayman GTS defeated the F-Type S coupe two years later. Honours were then even in October 2016 when we couldn’t split the 718 Boxster and F-Type V6 S...

Porsche 718 Owner Reviews

2020 Porsche 718 Cayman review

After dreaming about Porsche ownership for over 40 years, it has finally happened. Previous to the Cayman, I decided to try what was on offer from Europe in the form of a Golf R Mk7.5 and then a 2018 Audi RS3. Both cars impressed me with their build quality and performance, but the Cayman really shines in the handling and overall quality built into the car...
