The 718’s modifications are sparing inside. The revised multimedia system is the most notable alteration, along with the repositioned air vents above.
The new touchscreen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system is the most notable evolution of the Cayman’s dashboard.
Like the 911, the display gets a more flush design than its predecessor.
A black border remains, but the old-fashioned plastic shroud has gone. As with a Volkswagen Golf, on-screen options change depending on the proximity of your hand.
The new set-up is much easier to use than the old one (the previous version being heavy on buttons and light on intuitiveness) and the manufacturer hasn’t sacrificed its distinctiveness. For example, the click-switch shortcut buttons below the touchscreen are retained.
Nor has Porsche lost its knack for charging extra for items that might otherwise be found as standard.
If you’d like Apple CarPlay or online functionality or even sat-nav, these are available as cost option ‘modules’ only.
