Serving North Olmsted, OH

With style, grace, and abundant power, you cannot go wrong with either the 718 Cayman or the 718 Boxster. Right away, the Cayman impresses with a base power output of 300 horsepower and a top acceleration rate of 4.5 seconds. There are few changes in the Cayman for 2019 than in the past model year. It still seats two passengers, offers a luxurious cabin with high-end materials, provides exceptional steering and handling, and comes with refined powertrains. The 2019 Boxster is equally impressive with a flat-four cylinder turbo engine and plenty of speed. The Boxster features a quickly-folding soft top and signature Porsche styling that makes it great for a warm-weather getaway. For its looks and performance, the Boxster once again makes the list of Car and Driver’s “10 Best Cars” in 2019. As with the Cayman, the 718 Boxster gets few changes for the latest model year, with the exception that a sporty exhaust system, which was once optional, is now standard.


When it comes to performance, both the 718 Cayman and the 718 Boxster are in a class of their own. The 718 Cayman is available in a manual and an automatic transmission. The manual version gets up to 300 horsepower at a max RPM of 6,500. It goes from zero to 60 MPH in just 4.9 seconds. The automatic version has the same power output, but it accelerates from zero to 60 at a slightly faster 4.7 seconds. If you add the Sport Chrono package to the manual you’ll get the same acceleration rate, but that same package boosts the automatic’s acceleration rate to 4.5 seconds. Both the manual and automatic reach a top speed of 170 MPH. The Boxster has several engine options. The base is a 2.0L four-cylinder that produces up to 300 HP. The second engine is a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that generates 350 HP, and the third engine, which is standard on the GTS, is a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that produces up to 365 HP. The Boxster is also produced in both an automatic and a manual version.


Both the 718 Cayman and Boxster are built for performance, and they have looks to match. Both cars have elements of Porsche’s classic styling, including a long, low hood and pronounced headlights. The Cayman also sports the brand’s classic rear spoiler. The Cayman is available in four standard colors this year. You also have a choice of five metallic shades, four special colors, and two custom colors. While the Cayman stands out from the crowd, to begin with, its bi-xenon headlights make it even more distinctive. Both the Cayman and Boxster come with standard 18-inch wheels. The Boxster comes with the same exterior paint color choices, but it also adds four colors for its soft, retractable convertible top. Bi-xenon headlights are also standard on this model, and it gets red brake calipers in the front and back.


While sporty in an appearance on the outside, both cars have a luxurious interior. The Cayman has over 15 choices for interior trim. You can also choose a seat belt color. It offers a high-quality, eight-speaker sound system, a driver-centric dashboard, and a standard seven-inch infotainment display screen.
