PostHeaderIcon Here's Why the Alpine A110 Could Be Renault's Very Own Porsche Cayman Killer

After several years of rumors and teasing, Renault finally relaunched Alpine and unveiled the brand’s first road-going sports car in more than two decades. To those who aren’t familiar with the original Alpine A110, this new sports car is probably an enigma. The Alpine name doesn’t mean much to the average Joe nowadays, while the fact that it’s developed by Renault doesn’t give it the exposure it deserves. But I think that the new A110 has the potential to become a Porsche Cayman killer, and I’m going to explain why.

For starters, this isn’t your regular higher performance car based on an existing platform. The A110 rides on a bespoke chassis developed specifically for this application, while its lightweight, aluminum body is modern, yet aerodynamic and bears a close resemblance to the original, iconic A110 of the 1960s. In other words, while the Cayman doesn’t have that much history to brag about design-wise, the A110 is based on a vehicle that was launched two years before the Porsche 911. Pretty solid heritage, huh?

But looks are a matter of taste, and as I said before, Alpine is a rather obscure brand after operating as a niche carmaker in Europe only, so let’s move to the things that really matter to a sports car.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 718 Cayman by TechArt

My colleague, Jonathan Lopez, made a compelling argument on why the Geneva Motor Show is the best annual auto show in the world. I wholeheartedly concur. At the very least, it’s without question the biggest and most attended auto show as automakers from all over the world showcase their latest wares, and in many cases, preview what’s to come. Aftermarket tuners are also heavily involved in Geneva with their new tuning programs and this year’s Geneva is no different with the likes of TechArt bringing with it a new tuning kit for the Porsche 718 Cayman.

As one of the industry’s leading tuners with anything related to Stuttgart’s finest, TechArt’s portfolio of Porsche tuning programs is as good as it gets. It’s worked on just about every iteration and variant of the 911. It also has experience working with the Panamera and Porsche’s two SUVs, the Cayenne and the Macan. Now, the German tuner is setting its sights on the newest member of the Cayman family with an extensive aftermarket upgrade program that tackles all important aspects of the sports car. Exterior upgrades? Check. Interior appointments? Check. Engine update? Check. Chassis and wheels? Check and check.

The result is what you’d expect from a tuner who knows its business like TechArt. Not only was it successful in dramatically altering the 718 Cayman’s appearance, but it also managed to bring more life to the sports car that only a tuner that knows what it’s doing can do.

The 718 Cayman tuning package is all set to make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. From there, expect the program to become available to eager-beaver owners of the sports coupe who are in the market for some aftermarket loving’ for their brand new Caymans.

PostHeaderIcon Is The Porsche Cayman GT4 RS On Its Way?

The launch of the Porsche Cayman GT4 back in February 2015 was a welcome surprise for Porsche enthusiasts, but it also had the unintended effect of launching rumors on the possibility of a more powerful GT4 RS variant following suit. Two years later and we’re still no closer to seeing the Cayman GT4 RS. Or are we?

Apparently, our friends over at Car Advice came across an Instagram post from Australian Porsche dealership Porsche Centre Brisbane that essentially confirmed the arrival of the Cayman GT4 RS.

In its own words, Porsche Centre Brisbane posted this: “Attention GT4 aficionados. Due to high demand, a GT4 RS is on it’s way – with more power and a 4.0L flat-six engine, this limited will turn heads.”

You can read between the lines of that message, but it appears pretty clear about what it’s trying to say, unless “on it’s way” means something entirely different in the Southern Hemisphere. The dealership didn’t elaborate on where it got the information, but an official from Porsche Cars Australia clarified to Car Advice that the Cayman GT4 RS is not in Porsche’s plan as of the moment and that perhaps, somebody from the dealership just got carried away with all the speculation surrounding the desired Cayman variant.

That said, the same spokesperson also didn’t irrevocably shoot down the possibility of a Cayman GT4 RS coming to life. It could be that the dealership has the right info on its hands, but instead of keeping it to itself like Porsche wanted, it prematurely let the cat out of the bag. Whatever the case may be, we’re not abandoning hope of seeing a Cayman GT4 RS in the future. If for nothing else, Porsche would be smart to develop one for real, especially with the success the Cayman GT4 has enjoyed since making its debut two years ago. A more powerful range-topping version would certainly add to the model’s appeal, if it hasn’t already with all the speculation surrounding it.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Will Sell Watered Down Versions Of These Models In China

Like just about every automaker in the industry, Porsche counts China as one of its biggest and most important markets. The German automaker admittedly hasn’t reached the heights it wants in the country, so to remedy that, it’s planning to offer cheaper and less powerful versions of the latest Boxster and Cayman models.

The move comes in the wake of tepid sales for the German automaker’s sports car line, a far cry from the popularity of the Cayenne SUV in the market. Speaking with Automotive News Europe, Jan Roth, the head of Porsche’s 718 model line, lamented that the company’s primary issue involves the pricing of the two models. The flat-six version of the Cayman, for example, was priced at 700,000 renminbi, which converts to about $105,000 based on current exchange rates. But according to Roth, Chinese customers are more inclined to purchase a sports car that sells for less than 600,000 (about $90,000), calling the amount the “magical threshold for customers in China.”

So to appease the market, Porsche is planning to develop “China-specific” Boxster and Cayman models to persuade reluctant buyers to consider the two models. Not much is known about how the company plans to specifically package these models, but one certainty is that both base versions of the Boxster and Cayman will utilize a 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that produces 250 horsepower. It’s a slight drop in power from the traditional, 275-horsepower base Cayman model that all other markets will have, but it could spell the difference between attracting more Chinese customers to the table, especially if Porsche prices it right at the level that customers are willing to spend for the car.

That’s going to be the big question now that Porsche appears to be gearing up for this move. How much will these two base Boxster and Cayman models be priced? If Roth’s comments are any indication, somewhere in the 600,000 renminbi range is as good a guess as any at this point.

PostHeaderIcon Techart Porsche Cayman with Gold Details

Techart Porsche Cayman-Gold-0

German tuner Techart is one of the world’s classiest tuners when it comes to styling kits, putting the functionality of their packages above all other factors such as looks and sportiness. With this Techart Porsche Cayman S 981 though, they have sort of forgot all that.

Being a fan of understated design does not mean Techart says no to customers who want something a bit different. In the case of this Techart Porsche Cayman S, the car is equipped with a GT kit complete with front and rear spoilers and custom bumpers as well as Techart wheels. In the next stage it got all the gold stuff, and we have to admit it doesn’t look as bad you might expect.

Adorning your car, especially a sports coupe, with gold accents more often than not results in a ghastly look. But in the case of this Techart Cayman GT the color is used in strategic places to convey a feeling of luxuriousness without turning the car into an eyesore. Granted, the massive golden rims are a bit too much, but the golden struts of the rear wing and the golden tailpipes are nice touches and make a cool contrast with the Agate Grey finish of the body.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 718 Cayman

The mid-engined Porsche Cayman was launched in 2005. Essentially a coupe version of the Boxster, the Cayman has become increasingly popular with customers as a more affordable and balanced proposition to the range-topping 911. The first-generation coupe came with 2.7-, 2.9-, and 3.4-liter, flat-six engines with as many as 321 ponies and 273 pound-feet of torque. A facelifted Cayman was introduced in early 2009, while the redesigned model arrived in showrooms in 2013, this time powered by 275-, 325- and 340-horsepower engines. As we’re moving closer to the 2017 model year, the Germans are preparing a mid-cycle refresh for the still-new Cayman.

As with most Porsche facelifts, the Cayman was originally expected to receive minor exterior and interior changes, as well as a mild output increase. However, the unveiling of the revised Boxster made it clear that the Cayman was in for a more comprehensive update.

Aside from the usual upgrades inside and out, Stuttgart’s entry-level sports car also received a pair of brand-new engines and a name that harkens back to one of the company’s most iconic race cars. Specifically, the Cayman dropped its flat-six engine in favor of turbocharged, flat-four units and will be marketed as the 718 Cayman starting in 2016.

Another premier is that the Cayman now features the same output specs as the Boxster, with the two now set apart only by their body configurations. What’s more, for the first time the Cayman is priced below the roadster, in a similar way to the 911 model. Find out more about that in our review below and have a look at the first official photos of the 718 Cayman, which was unveiled at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show.

Updated 06/03/2016: Porsche announced that the new 718 Cayman just had a successful production launch at the company’s plant in Stuttgart. With the production launch of the new 718 cayman, Porsche hopes to increase production numbers to a total of 240 vehicles per day by August – up from the current 220.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche 718 Cayman Rendered Based on the Boxster

Porsche 718 Cayman-render

So one day after Porsche officially introduced the new 718 Boxster, a rendering of that car’s hardtop sibling, the Porsche 718 Cayman has emerged showing precisely what you can expect from the sports coupe. And it’s not half bad.

Now you might think the designer of this rendering has been lazy as he’s only put a solid roof on the 718 Boxster and voila, here’s your Porsche 718 Cayman. But the fact of the matter is, the Cayman really is a Boxster with a metal top. That’s all there is to it. The real lazy people here are Porsche’s own designers.

Of course, this only applies to Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S models. Models that will follow those – such as GTS and GT4 – will have enough unique styling touches that they look totally different from the base models. But if that’s what you want, you are going to have wait a long time, since the normal Cayman itself is still a long way off.

Just like the Boxster, the new 718 Cayman will get a 2.0 liter turbocharged flat-four in the base model with 300hp and a 2.5 liter unit in the S model with 350 horsepower. Traditionally, the Cayman is a bit more poised and precise than the Boxster, but to be honest we prefer the open-top experience of the latter.

If you can’t afford the new Cayman GT4, or if you just like the way it looks, there is a solution for your problem. This custom Porsche Cayman by Pfaff Tuning shows beautifully what can be done with the right aftermarket parts at a reasonable cost.

So instead of blowing a large pile of cash on a GT4, you buy yourself a nice and clean second hand Cayman, and then spend a few more grands doing it up. The end result, judging by what we see here, can be quite spectacular.  Pfaff’s custom Porsche Cayman is equipped with a body kit from Techart, consisting of front chin spoiler, side vents, rear diffuser, and rear wing, the low version. If you want a full GT4 look, you can for the long version of that wing.

But the body kit alone would not have been enough for the sweet look the car now rocks. So the tuner did some structural work, beginning with installing H&R sport lowering springs and then swapping the stock wheels for a set of Forgestar f14 wheels in Piano Black, wrapped with Pirelli P zero tires (245/35/19F 275/35/19R). The wheels feature acid green pin striping to match the brake calipers.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayman And Boxster Will be Renamed To 718 Cayman And 718 Boxster

The Porsche Boxster and Cayman are set to receive significant changes beginning with the 2016 models of both mid-engine sports cars. For starters, both the Boxster and the Cayman are scheduled to get new names. Taking a page from its traditional style of naming its vehicles, the Boxster and the Cayman will be renamed the 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman.

Porsche made the announcement in a press release, even though it didn’t exactly explain the reason behind the decision to add the historically significant “718” name to both mid-engined sports cars. Porsche purists know that the 718 designation is a reference to the ground-breaking, open-top race car that Porsche built from 1957 to 1962. The original 718 was a two-seater, 1.5-liter sports car that was adapted to compete in a number of different formulas during its years with Porsche, most notably in 1961 when it competed in Formula One and propelled driver Dan Gurney to a fourth place finish in the driver’s championship.

Neither the Boxster nor the Cayman have any historical ties to the original 718 so it’s interesting to hear why Porsche decided to dust off the name and give it to both models. Whatever rationale Porsche has, it does look more and more certain that we’re going to see the legendary 718 name back into the fold. Younger fans of Porsche may not be familiar with it, but rest assured, the historical significance attached to the name speaks to the rich and oftentimes successful history Porsche has in motorsports.

Both the 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman will be next-generation models when they make their debuts in 2016. Details have been scant at this point, but Porsche did say that the two models will be more similar than they have been in the past. That’s interesting considering both are already nearly identical to each other except for a few notable exceptions.

PostHeaderIcon 2016 Boxster and Cayman Announced as Porsche 718 Models

Porsche 718 Cayman

In one of the most unnecessary changes ever, Porsche announced the new 2016 modelyear Boxster and Cayman will be called 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman. They also confirmed the addition of flat four-cylinder ‘boxer’ turbo engines to the range.

The new nomenclature seems to have only one purpose and that is to impress nerds. You know, the kind that like to tell you their Porsche 718 is named after a 1957 sports car which was considered “ground-breaking” back then and won many races. And how uncool is that? And how awkward is the name Porsche 718 Boxster? As far as normal people are concerned, these are still called Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman.

The significance of the 718 designation for Porsche engineers is due to the use of new four-cylinder engines in the new models, the 718 being the first really successful four-banger the company ever made. They brought back the four-pot motors in the 919 hybrid which, of course, won the 2015 Le Mans 24 Hours. And now they will be used in turbocharged form in the new Cayman and Boxster, delivering the same power as the flat-six motors but much better mileage.

Details and Performance numbers for the new four-cylinder 718 Boxster and Cayman models are yet to be released. The cars themselves will be revealed in the course of 2016.

Following the debut of the new Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport track car yesterday at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the German sports car maker has now released a bunch of new photos and a video of the car. They show off the Clubsport in action and demonstrate what the car is capable of when unleashed on its natural habitat, which is the race track… or an empty car park!

Based on the road-legal GT4, the Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport has the same powertrain as the street car, but it benefits from a stripped-out cabin, racing-grade chassis and suspension, and racing slicks, among other changes. The lightweight beast is both a serious competition car and a wonderful track toy for those who just want to have fun.

For 2016, Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport will be homologated for race series such as the Pirelli World Challenge, the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, the Pirelli GT3 Cup Trophy in the USA, the Ultra 94 GT3 Cup Challenge in Canada and for club racing of the Porsche Club of America as well as other race events on the club sport level across the globe.

And since the base car is only 111,000 euro, it is going to be one of the most affordable kind of Motorsport you can experience.

As for the technical specs, Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport boasts the same 385 hp 3.8-litre flat-six Carrera engine as the street version, mated to a modified six-speed Porsche double clutch transmission. It gets a lightweight strut front axle from 911 GT3 Cup, racing brake system with 380-millimetre steel brake discs, revised ABS and traction control for slick tires, and an electro-mechanical steering system. The car weighs 1,300 kg and has the mandatory welded-in safety cage, racing bucket seat as well as a six-point harness and a 90 liter fuel tank straight out of the box.

2x Porsche Cayman GT4-0

In a parking lot near the famous Nürburgring in the beautiful town of Nürburg, two extremely gorgeous and almost identical Porsche Cayman GT4 models were spotted together. The ’Ring is the natural habitat of a car like the GT4, what with all the upgrades it features over the standard Cayman.

Somewhere in the middle of the chassis, just behind the seats and in front of the rear trunk, there is a 911 Carrera engine providing the Porsche Cayman GT4 with 385 horsepower. That power is delivered to the rear wheels via a manual gearbox, which is another highlight of the GT4, and the reason some people prefer this car to even to the GT3, which comes only with a PDK automatic. Performance-wise, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and can reach a top speed of very nearly 300 km/h.

You notice the gloss black wheels, the custom spoiler and some not-so-very-classy stickers, one of which hints at the presence of a custom sport exhaust system. They both have the red brake calipers which mean they are not optioned with the ceramic brake discs, otherwise those things would have been yellow. Still, they will provide their drivers with some properly good times at the ‘Ring.

PostHeaderIcon XCAR Reviews The 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4: Video

With cars like the Porsche 911 GT3, 911 Turbo S and the Carrera GT, fans of the Cayman have felt rather neglected without a performance-based variant of the Cayman in Porche’s lineup. All of that changed with the release of the Porsche Cayman GT4. To make the GT4 what it is, Porsche used components from the 911 GT3 to make what is arguably the best Cayman to date.

In a recent video review, XCAR compared the new GT4 to the 911 GT3, and it appears they were quite happy with the GT4. Things like sport mode and the ability to dampen the noise created by the engine all make the GT4 worthy of track- and on-road performance. The GT4 uses a 3.8-liter powerplant like the 911 GT3, but it only produces 385 horsepower compared to the 911’s 475 horsepower. The GT4 hits 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds – almost a second slower than the GT3. On paper, it undoubtedly looks like the 911 is a clear winner between the two, but it’s the little things the new GT4 offers that give it an edge. Check out the video to see the full review – you’ll be happy you did.


PostHeaderIcon Porsche Cayman GT4 To Get the Club Sport Treatment

The Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport is officially confirmed for production. The new sports car will make its public debut in just a month, during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it should put the current Cayman GT4 into the shadows.

However, don’t forget that the Porsche Cayman GT4 is a “driver’s car” and it is capable of some pretty amazing performance, while having an aggressive appearance and some internals borrowed from its larger brother, the 911. Some enthusiasts went as far as to say that this will cannibalize the 911, but true connoisseurs aren’t worried at all.

But enough with the Porsche Cayman GT4. This article isn’t about it anymore, but about the Cayman GT4 Clubsport. It may wear a similar name, but it will be such a different ride, and it will be only aimed toward track-day events and various motorsport competitions, because its future owners will not be able to drive it on public roads.

PostHeaderIcon Van Mounts Porsche Cayman in Bizarre Accident

Van Mounts Porsche Cayman-1

In one of the weirdest accidents we’ve seen in a long time, a big delivery van was seen mounting a nice little Porsche Cayman in Manchester, UK. But it’s not what it’s look like. You would think it was the van that lost control of its urges and humped the red Porsche. But you’d be wrong.

According to the reports from the scene of the accident, the driver of the Porsche was driving recklessly and after running two red lights it smashed into the back of the van. The Porsche being a low and wide sports car and the van being tall and ungainly, one thing let to another and the Cayman ended up trampled by the Deli van.

Fortunately nobody was seriously hurt in the incident, which is a real testament to Porsche and how good they build their cars. The force of the accident also propelled the van to smash to a taxi in front of it. The driver of the taxi tells his account of the bizarre incident as such: “I was parked at the traffic lights and then one of them shouted ‘Oh my god there’s a van flying onto our roof overhead, and they were screaming. Then a few seconds and there was a big bang. The van was hanging on my back tail on the roof.”

Since its launch, we have seen plenty of video reviews showcasing the immense capabilities of the 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4. But nobody has ever bothered to figure out, once and for all, if this ultimate Cayman is a true 911 alternative or not. Until now, as Motor Trend’s Jason Cammisa hits the race track with the GT4 to find the answer. 

Finding the answer, as you would expect, required treating the Porsche Cayman GT4 like a 911 and that meant pushing it to and beyond its limits. So let’s see how does this mid-911-engined, manual Porsche fares:

Porsche Cayman S Exclusive-0

The latest creation of Porsche Exclusive, a department of the German automaker dealing with one-off, bespoke, and customized models, is a vanilla Porsche Cayman S. We call it vanilla simply because it comes in white!

That doesn’t mean it’s not exciting though. The Exclusive Cayman S does have a few tricks up its sleeve that set it apart from the normal models. However, you have to be a hard-core Porsche aficionado to notice any of them. Engine-wise, the car is a standard Cayman S with a 325-hp 3.4 liter flat-six engine. 

On the outside Porsche Cayman S Exclusive features a number of subtle details such as headlight washers painted in black, tinted rear lights, model designation on doors in black, side air intakes and half of mirror caps painted in black, and a set of 20-inch SportTechno wheels with gloss black spokes and red brake calipers.

You get a more sense of ‘exclusiveness’ once you step inside this Porsche Cayman S. The interior is a sea of espresso colored leather. You find it on the seats, doors cards, consoles, steering wheel and column, the rear view mirror even. There is also white-painted interior trim pieces, white instruments dials, and a Porsche Crest embossed on the storage box lid.
