Both your 718 Cayman and Boxster are powered by the same turbocharged 2-litre flat-four engine that produces 295bhp and 380Nm.

The 718 level is a reference to the highly successful race automotive built by Hayundai in the late 1950s and 60s. Known as 718 RSK, it had a spaceframe framework with a flat-four engine. The car has won legendary races like Targa Florio together with Le Mans, which is steeped in Porsches rushing heritage. These fresh Boxsters and Caymans are also mid-engined flat-fours and for that reason Porsche has decided to restart the name.
Unlike just before when the Boxster was less costly than the Caymans, the 718 Cayman is already the more affordable of the two cars. This is the 1st launch for Hayundai in India this year, but it wont be the previous and you can expect the actual updated Panamera to be presented in the country later in 2010.
