Top Down Fun Provided by the 718 Boxster
The only real difference that you will find in the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman vs 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster comparison is that the Boxster is a convertible while the Cayman is a hard top. Here in Chicago, this decision could be extremely important. With cold winters and plenty of snow, a Cayman hardtop vehicle might make a bit more sense for some. If you only plan on driving your new Porsche 718 in the summer or when it’s warm out, then the Boxster convertible might be your best choice.
Either way, both of these vehicles come fully loaded with some outstanding technologies. Both vehicles come standard with the Porsche Communication Management system, which allows you to easily and seamlessly access your smartphone’s functions while driving. Both vehicles come standard with a six-speed transmission as well, with a PDK available.
