  • Roomy cabin for two
  • Boots front and rear
  • Remarkably practical for its ilk

The Porsche 718 Cayman is surprisingly practical for a two-seater sports car. The cabin is snug, but just right for a pair of occupants. Entry and exit is pretty straightforward, too, with doors that open easily and wide.

There are a couple of cubbies dotted around the cabin and you can hang a coat behind the front seats. You also have two pop-out cupholders hidden above the glovebox, which itself is surprisingly large for a two-seater sports car. The door bins and centre armrest storage are far from being the most commodious, but we’re glad they’re here in the first place.

However, the best bit is the twin boot arrangement allowed by the mid-mounted engine.

Where you’d find the motor under the bonnet of a conventional family car lies a deep, square-shaped 150-litre boot. You’ll easily stow a couple of soft bags in there. And then there’s a further 125-litre luggage compartment under the rear tailgate. The Cayman has hidden luggage lugging powers, make no mistake.

Is it easy to park?

Visibility is good with help of the large windows and door mirrors, but all models also come with front and rear parking sensors as standard. A rear-view camera is optional.

How safe is the 718 Cayman?

  • 718 Cayman is dripping in safety kit
  • Six airbags to protect you
  • Plenty of electro nannies keep you safe

Porsche is a brand renowned for its safety prowess and the Cayman is well equipped with hardware – and software – to keep its occupants well protected in a crash. And many of the systems are designed to prevent an accident happening in the first place.

Every 718 comes with twin airbags in front of both occupants, built into the side of the seat bolster and the headliner to cushion bodies from the most serious impacts.

But just as important is the equipment helping drivers to avoid a collision: bi-xenon headlamps are standard (they’ll flick on automatically at dusk), the door mirrors are heated to clear frost on wintry morning and the huge brake discs clamped by four-piston callipers are supremely powerful, as you’d expect from a Porsche.

Finally, the Cayman hasn’t been tested by Euro NCAP like the larger Macan and Cayenne models.
