2017 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2017 Lexus RC F

If you are looking from a 2017 car model and you happened to have screened all possible options, you might have toned down your list into two choices. Like other auto car buyers in Lawrenceville New Jersey, you must have ended up with the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and that of the 2017 Lexus RC F. Here is an explanation behind why you must go for the Porsche instead.

Design & Style

Sleek and stylish – these are the two words that best describe the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and the 2017 Lexus RC F. This will make you see them as really a great find from the outside. Getting inside each car will establish the difference though. The 2017 Lexus RC f has a very tight cabin space which can mean that not all passengers may be accommodated inside. It has excellent quality materials inside but there are parts of the design which have been compromised. Also, usability and visibility are both a problem with the RC F.

If you look inside the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman, you will see only a few changes but that has to be taken as a good thing because sometimes the more you update a new car model, the more it becomes unattractive to drivers and passengers. You will love the layout of materials in the cabin, all of which are of impeccable quality. Add to that the fact that buttons are labeled and logically placed for ease of use and access.

Technology & Safety

Considering the technology and safety aspects which are very crucial when making a choice and in order to know whether you are getting your money’s worth, it has to be noted that the 2017 Lexus RCF comes with a set of automatic wipers, parking sensors, ventilated and heated seats and a premium audio system. With this type of a car, you must be expecting other functionalities too because what it contains, by now is very basic that all competitors have these standard features already.

Technology and safety wise, the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman is a sure winner. It has the basic features we have mentioned for the RC F plus you will also find a Bluetooth interface, a touchscreen display and a six-speaker audio system inside it. It is also blessed with an HD and satellite radio.


The 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman is also a winner in terms of performance. You will never go wrong with its 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that can produce up to as much as 280lb-ft of torque and 300 horsepower. The 2017 Lexus RC F is gifted with a 5.0-liter, V8 engine and claims to produce up to as much as 467lb-ft of torque and 389 horsepower but it has transmission problems that make it hard to downshift.

The Bottom Line

With the comparison made above, you have already known these two cars better. It is obvious why we stand up for the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman. Yes, it is true that the 2017 Lexus RC F is impressive but it cannot be denied that the Cayman is the total package.
