Porsche’s Naturally-Aspirated 2020 718s Are Perfect For Purists

Porsche has spent the better part of this year reconstituting some of their most prominent platforms, bringing enhanced power plants, different packages, plans, and liveries, and modern peripherals to their already-legendary lineup. Now, the German manufacturer is setting its sights on the 718 Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder — giving purists a reason to look forward to the vehicles’ impending 2020 release.

While both of the company’s adored platforms are obviously very different from one another, Porsche has opted to give them the same upgrade package. The mid-engined Cayman GT4 and Boxster Spyder will receive the manufacturer’s four-liter, naturally aspirated flat-six engine, capable of 414 horsepower and 309 lb-ft of torque. This re-engineered power plant is based on a similar system utilized in the new 911 but without the inclusion of a turbocharger. Aside from improved suspension components, adaptive dampers, a lower ride height, and the company’s performance-oriented Ceramic Composite brake rotors, each variant will be outfitted with a six-speed manual transmission for enthusiast drivers. The cars will make their way to dealerships in the spring, but if you’re interested in securing one of the earliest models beforehand, the $100,450 Cayman GT4 and $97,550 Boxster Spyder are available right now for pre-order.
