As Ihave noted in another thread, I am in the early stages of ordering a 718 Cayman to replace my 2016 Cayman 2.7L. I have owned an 08 CS, Cayman R, 2014 Cayman 2.7L and now the 2016 Cayman 2.7L. Clearly, engine size/hp is not the primary determiner for what I order (nor is price, per se). I will be test driving a 2.0L and 2.5L PDKs as part of my research. I am interested in hearing from both owners on this forum. I am interested in how you experience turbo lag or lack, thereof in the two iterations. What I will be evaluating in the test drives is how the cars respond to throttle input vis-a-vis what I have today in the NA 2.7L. Torque curve to torque curve, it would seem that either of the 718s would not experience as much 'lag' in acceleration as the 2.7L (it has never bothered me particularly by the way but it is there a bit under 2,000 rpm).
