Porsche Cayman Generations

Porsche had teased fans with the prospect of a coupe version of the Boxster roadster so it was no surprise when we first saw the Cayman S in 2005, created on the new second generation 987 Boxster platform. The Cayman was epic from day one. The second generation Cayman was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The Porsche 981 was the internal designation given to the third-generation of the Boxster and second generation of the Cayman. The 981 generation Cayman got a beautiful design update as well as revised engine and transmission specifications. The Boxster and Cayman get more upgrades and made the strong argument that the 911 is no longer the best sports car in the world. The Porsche 982 is the internal designation of the fourth generation Boxster (and third generation Cayman). The big news with the 718 is the switch to a new turbocharged flat-four engine and Porsche moving away from the naturally aspirated flat-6. Don't worry, Porsche relented in the end and gave us a naturally aspirated flat 6 eventually in the form of the Cayman GT4 and then GTS.
