The Porsche 718 consists of the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, a two-door convertible and coupe offering sporty thrills starting at roughly $65,000. There are no major changes for 2022, although a new variant called the GT4 RS offers greater levels of performance with the 500-hp engine from the flagship Porsche 911 GT3.
In base form, the 718 Cayman comes with a two-liter four-cylinder turbo rated at 300 hp. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, although a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox is optional for an extra $3,210. The same goes for the soft top 718 Boxster, which offers a pricier variant called the 718 Spyder starting at over $102,000.
The 718 is available in a large number of configurations. Rear-wheel drive is standard across the board. In contrast, the more expensive 911 sports car is available with all-wheel drive to better handle the car's outstanding output. The Cayman T has the same engine as the base model, but upgrading to the Cayman S offers a nice boost in power to 350 hp. The higher-end GTS brings that to 394 hp thanks to a naturally-aspirated six-cylinder engine. The Porsche 718 GT4 ups the ante to 414 hp.
The 2022 Porsche 718 is available to order now at dealerships nationwide. Given the fact that the 718 is typically produced in fewer numbers than models like the Porsche Macan, you may find trouble finding one in stock. As a result, placing a factory order could be your best way to drive home the 718 of your dreams.
