Since 2005, the Cayman nameplate has appeared on the fixed-head variant of Porsche’s popular entry-level sports car, the Boxster. Porsche wanted a model to slot in below their iconic 911, and the Boxster was born in 1996 to fulfil that need. It’s been one of their best-selling models since then. The fourth generation, or Type 982 would see the naming convention slightly changed to incorporate the 718 name, which is from Porsche’s historical annals, as their racing car which won the Targa Florio in 1959 and 1960. What’s on sale here is a 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Coupe in pristine order, with just 1,200 miles on the clock. It’s pretty much a brand-new car that you can buy right now, no waiting lists or supply chain delays to contend with.
The design of the fourth-generation Boxster and Cayman is the work of Peter Varga, who retained the model’s iconic silhouette while incorporating the latest styling cues. The Cayman is not a particularly large car, as this 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Coupe demonstrates in a Chalk exterior paint job, coming in at just 172 inches long, and 51 inches tall, although width is nearly 71 inches, giving it a lovely hunkered-down stance. You’ve got the door handles in contrasting gloss black, and a set of Satin Aurum wheels showcase the red brake calipers behind. LED headlamps with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus ensure that night drives are a breeze, and power folding exterior mirrors complete the exterior, and let’s open a door and step inside now. Step over the illuminated door sills in stainless steel and you enter a two-seat cabin that’s finished in black, with red stitching on the leather, Guards Red seat belts, and Race-Tex seat trim. Splashes of carbon fiber trim are present too, and the steering wheel prominently features a red marker at the twelve-o-clock position, while you face a set of clear dials in Guards Red. Packages include the Light Design package, Smoker’s package, and Sport Chrono package. The passenger footwell also contains a luggage net and fire extinguisher. Climate control and infotainment system top off the tech toys. All in, this car’s spec sheet is reported to be a rare combo.
The 718 series is typically seen with Porsche’s new turbocharged four-cylinder units, but this 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Coupe rocks something more soulful than forced induction. It’s a 4.0L flat-six that’s naturally aspirated, and produces 414hp at 7,600rpm, as well as 420lb-ft between 5,000 and 6,800rpm. You get to wring that engine out through a six-speed manual transmission for added driving pleasure, and power is all sent to the rear wheels. Zero to sixty is a sub 4.5 second affair, and the car doesn’t run out of puff until a claimed 189mph.
