2018 718 Boxster S, 2007 Cayman
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Been away traveling for work and rented a couple of competitor 2.0 liter engines and was very disappointment driving them. Today I came home and had to take the 718 Boxster for a spin, yes I miss my Porsche when I travel, lol. It never seems to amaze, the feeling in your stomach and you step on it, the constant push all the way from 2000 rpm to redline, what a rush. I paired this engine with the RaceChip piggy back tuner and the XLR pedal module and man, this car is a beast. I just drove the 2.5 Cayman GTS on a racetrack in Vegas and did not notice any difference in power. Maybe mine might have more low end punch. that is quite a statement. I think with the Racechip tune, there might be more torque in the 2.0 liter. (I can image putting the Racechip in the GTS model) The low end torque is what makes this car great. I can see why the 2.0 L motor was voted motor of the year. It is miles ahead of all others. Many Mustang GT's, SS Camaro's and chargers have tried, but its not even close, its almost boring, and I don't even have sports chrono, The 718 just disappears. Porsche has built a masterpiece, probably only the 911 turbo and GT3 have the better motors. Congrats Porsche for building this amazing motor and put it in a base model. Wow. Imagine owning a base 718 and have no interest to trade for a 911, Ferrari, Lambo. This is as good as it gets folks, the car is magical. Just read the new Motor Trend magazine, Cayman GTS (6cyl) vs C8 corvette. Surprise, Surprise!!! Especially since the C8 corvette defeated the 911 back in January..
