On the configurator, there is a choice of Model Designation "718". When selected, the configurator photo shows "718" on the rear of the car. There is no option on the configurer of Model Designation "718 Cayman. Most caymans I have seen in person have "718 Cayman" on the rear. Will my car have "718" or "718 Cayman" on the rear?

If you’re ordering a base then It’ll come stock as, “718 Cayman” unless you choose something else. I personally took the badging off myself as I like the look.

I too deleted the model designation. I prefer the clean look. I plan on having a personalized license plate that reads 718KMAN.

Yes, standard is the chrome applique that says 718 Cayman (with or without S as appropriate). The 718 alone is an option. Other options are delete entirely or painted 718. I wanted the latter but found a car that matched my configurator other than this and seat color - at a better price than ordering, and no wait. I will probably have the '718 Cayman S' taken off and get a matte black one from Suncoast and only apply the 718 the the S and leave out the 'Cayman'.

I have 718 Boxster ordered - I also did the deletion. I think it looks cleaner

Yup! I did the model deletion as well. Looks cleaner to me. I really would of liked the Cayman sticker on the side of the car in black, but I got a bit cheap and opted against it.

I went with just the 718--the series number. Boxster is everywhere else, including the door sills!

"718" in Miami Blue on my Miami Blue Boxster S. In general, I found it odd that the standard "chrome" lettering doesn't match the "chrome" "PORSCHE" just above it. The standard configuration seemed awfully busy. The body color "718" discreetly proclaims 718 pride. Miami Blue is all about discreet.

I left it all on my Cayman, most by inaction.

I agree that it's cleaner without it.

But I was at a Cars & Coffee recently and I noticed a couple of guys looking at my car.
When they walked around to the back, one said, "Oh....this is the new 718 model."
So I guess the badging serves its function.

Precisely what I did, but in Night Blue Metallic. Subtle but glorious. >:D

I went with "718" on my rhodium silver cayman. Was going to go for black "718" and black door handles but decided against it eventually. Think it - indeed - looks "clean" with just the 718...

Will be de-badging the 718 Cayman in silver for the 718 in black to match the wheels. My children both have short names and dammit so should my car!

As mine was an ex-demonstrator, the choice had already been made. Saying that, I think the colour of the car is a factor. With crayon (and I guess white), painted black really sets of the contrast. I think had I decided myself, just the 718 painted would look great on a light coloured car
