On Thursday 28 July, Porsche Centre Mayfair held an exclusive showcase of the new 718 Cayman. Guests were treated to a VIP reception at the prestigious Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall with the 718 Cayman on display in the rotunda.
Founded in 1897 and given its Royal Charter in 1907, the Royal Automobile Club is the oldest and most esteemed motoring organisation in the UK. With a history steeped in motorsport, the RAC held the first Tourist Trophy in 1905, which remains the longest standing continuously competed motor sports event. The Club promoted the first pre-war and post-war Grands Prix at Brooklands in 1926 and Silverstone in 1948 respectively, whilst continuing to campaign for the rights of the motorist, including the introduction of the first driving licences.
Greg Hardy-Smith, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Mayfair, said “We were delighted to be involved with such a fantastic event. The Royal Automobile Club with its rich history and lavish Rotunda was the perfect setting for our exclusive launch of the new 718 Cayman."
Evo magazine had this to say about the new 718 Cayman: 'The Porsche Cayman has finally come of age... it has been allowed to mature into a more potent, credible and desirable model in its own right and emerges from the 911’s shadow as a brilliant all-round package that needs no excuses.'

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
