Luxury Features

Although they’re sports cars first and foremost, the Porsche 718 Cayman and BMW M2 still wear the crests of their respective luxury brands. Standard features for both include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power front seats, speed-sensitive volume control, and keyless entry. The 718 Cayman, however, stands out with a few features not found on the M2, such as:

  • ParkAssist: Using four sensors in the front and rear ends, the 718 Cayman can sense and alert you to obstacles as you reverse or pull into a parking space.
  • Optional Adaptive Cruise Control: This system is offered on 718 Caymans with the Porsche Doppelkupplung transmission and can scan the road up to 650 feet ahead to ensure you’re traveling with the flow of traffic.
  • Optional Cooled Front Seats: You and your front passenger can stay cool and relaxed as the sun beats down on Ewa Beach.
