Among the list of car models that are pitted against each other, you will find the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman and the 2018 Lexus RC F forming part of it. These two look great but much more than that fact, you also need to consider factors that will be important in making that final decision for your next big investment. How about reading this comparison to help you come up with an informed and wise decision?

Design & Style

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman knows how to define luxury and comfort through its design and style. With a dashing look on the outside, depicting its sportiness, you will certainly adore this car. Inside it, you will see how luxury has been defined by the quality of materials used for the cabin. The space is also one that offers comfort.

As for the 2018 Lexus RC F, the first thing you will notice is its impeccable grille design. This adds a touch of beauty to its exterior. Inside it, you will appreciate that it used quality materials for the cabin. One of the things that will disappoint you is the problem with visibility. Comfort wise, you will be dismayed with the lack of space in its cabin as well.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman also excels in terms of technology and safety features. It has been gifted with a dependable 7-inch touchscreen display, a remarkable navigation system and a more than acceptable six-speaker audio system. Driver aids allow you to enjoy driving even on tough roads. With the provision for blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning, you can trust that the Porsche will take you to different places without much worry.

The 2018 Lexus RC F, on the other hand, may be gifted with technologies but there is reason to be frustrated by what you will find along this line. The infotainment system is useless because it lags behind those found in its rivals, the Cayman included. Also there is no support for smartphone integration plus the screen graphics on display are obsolete for its class.


In terms of performance, again the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman wins over the 2018 Lexus RC F. With the Porsche’s four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine, you will be able to enjoy maximum torque of 280lb-ft and up to 300 horsepower. For the 2018 Lexus RC F, you may find the figures 467 horsepower and 389lb-ft of torque thrilling. But you will notice engine noise once you step on the brakes even with the 5.0-liter, V8 engine under its hood.

The Bottom Line

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman impresses not only in terms of design and style as well as technology and safety features. It performs better than the 2018 Lexus RC F too. Will you still have second thoughts purchasing the Cayman?
