When news about an updated Porsche Boxster hit the press, some folks were claiming it was only a matter of time before the German auto company would be releasing a similarly updated version of the soft-top’s cousin, the Cayman. Well, as it turns out, they were right. Porsche just recently announced news that they’ll be releasing a turbocharged 2017 718 Cayman in the middle of this year.

With a new 2.0 liter turbocharged flat-four cylinder engine that can pump out 300 horses (or 350 if you pick up the 2.5 liter S model) and 280 pound-feet of torque between 1,950 and 4,500 rpm, this model will not disappoint. For those looking to hit the track (or maybe just get onto the freeway a little faster) the 718 offers an impressive sprint time of 0-60 MPS in 4.5 seconds on its way to a 177 MPH top speed. Porsche gussied up more than just the powerplant on the new Cayman. With a new chassis, firmer springs, and wheels set a half-inch wider, this new model will boast superb high-speed cornering. As if the Cayman wasn’t already good looking enough – Porsche pumped up the body a bit for a more aggressive and curvy look. You can expect these at dealerships around October with a window sticker starting at $53,900. [Purchase]
