Maybe that’s a little harsh to say, but to be honest, the Caymans and Boxsters have always been deemed “the poor man’s Porsche” – regardless of what the price is.
Even with the revision from a normally aspirated six cylinder engine to a turbocharged behemoth, the new Porsche 718 still feels boring. The new specs on paper sure look better- but, let’s be honest, it still makes you feel like the guy (or gal) who can’t afford the beastier, and more expensive, 911 Turbo S.
To add, the exterior doesn’t have much going on for it. It almost looks like a shortened version of the classic Panamera that we all hated and loved. With that size, you might as well save yourself some cash and pick up an Audi TT- You can still feel like a girl without porsche poser monkey on your back.
