The German sports car automaker has recently introduced the new 718 Boxster roadster but refrained from presenting its twin brother coupe – the 718 Cayman.
Last week Porsche outed into the world the brand new 718 Boxster convertible – we’re saying brand new mostly because of the name change as the model is actually a facelift of the current generation. But Porsche decided to split the reveals ahead of their official public introductions later in March during the Geneva Motor Show by refraining from depicting the Cayman as well. No problem, since the Boxster’s design will mostly get carried to the coupe platform. This means it was a pretty slam dunk job for known independent artist X-Tomi Design from Hungary to show us why digital renders are a sleek way of bringing to life models that have not been released yet.
We’re betting that even though the digital artist is in no way affiliated to Porsche he had no problem delivering a rather accurate render of the facelifted Cayman. This version is being depicted in the S model trim, which is the hotter one of the lineup. Most likely the Cayman S will carryover the Boxster’s new turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four engine churning out 350 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque – with performance matching or exceeding the roadster’s sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in four seconds if opting for the PDK gearbox and optional Sport Chrono Package. Deliveries for both models should begin sometimes this summer and pricing might remained pretty much unchanged – though further details will be revealed closer to launch.
