2018 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2017 Acura NSX

Are you caught in between buying the older 2017 Acura NSX over the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman? Is it because of the price attached to it? Well, you have to consider all the features you will get from these luxury cars before saying you will go for the cheaper one. Find out why the Porsche is a better buy over the Acura through this comparison.

Design & Style

There is a style in the 2017 Acura NSX that will truly impress you. The wheels are accentuated with touches of red that adds up to its plus points in the design and style arena. Add to that, you will also find out that the ride will take you comfortable to places and promises forward visibility appropriate for safe driving. However, there is little that it can offer in terms of space because cargo and cabin space are both limited despite looking large on the outside.

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman, on the other hand, breathes luxury and comfort at the same time. The cabin has been constructed using the most excellent quality materials thus having the same level of comfort offered by the Acura. Interiors are stylish too because it has been patterned from the Porsche 911 which is among the most expensive cars from the car maker.

Technology & Safety

One of the reasons why people have their eyes on the 2018 Porsche Cayman is the fact that it has been blessed with technology and safety features that users will love. The infotainment system is easy to use with the presence of controls that are navigable and functional. The 7-inch touchscreen and the presence of a six-speaker audio system speak much about what it can offer. Advanced driver safety aids are also available.

The 2017 Acura NSX may carry with it some of these technologies too but it has to be noted that their presence is hardly felt because the system, in general, is difficult to comprehend with. It has to be pointed out too that it lacks advanced safety driver aids which are essential for better travel.


The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman runs on the same four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine like the Boxster and produces the same output with 280lb-ft of torque and 300 horsepower. The 2017 Acura NSX, on the other hand, seems to be better on this aspect but you have to consider the fact that it has been blessed with a V6, 2.5-liter engine that is why it is capable of producing a total output of as much as 406lb-ft of torque and 573 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

While the 2017 Acura NSX is powerful, it lacks the flair and personality that the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman has. It lacks the advanced safety features already present in the Porsche too thus making the Cayman a truly better choice.
