2022 Porsche Cayman vs. 2022 BMW 8-Series

The 2022 Porsche Cayman is an ultimate luxury sports car offering the best features to those who will buy it. It has a roomy cabin where two people can seat comfortably and safely even during exhilarating trips. It also uses upscale materials for its cabin’s construction.

For the 2022 BMW 8-Series, you will expect that turbocharged engines are brawny. It has a well-trimmed cabin and offers more standard features than usual.

Design & Style

The Porsche Cayman may seem to project that it is small when you look at it on the outside. Once you get to see inside, you will appreciate how two seats have been configured in it. There are plenty of things to enjoy in that area including well-bolstered seats and soft-touch surfaces. The cargo area can carry your suitcases without feeling so tight inside.

In the case of the 2022 edition for the BMW 8-Series, there are coupe and convertible models with four seats. There is also a grand coupe that seats five. The convertible type is tight in terms of space. The rear seats are slim an all models too. Shorter adults or kids are better left in that area. There is a middle seat but the center console causes straddling with your legs, which means legroom is smaller in this setup.

Technology & Safety

The 2022 Porsche Cayman uses a seven-inch touch screen to embody features for its Porsche Communication Management infotainment. The ride also features HD and satellite radios, two USB ports, eight speakers, and a Bluetooth, plus Apple CarPlay. You have the option to avail of advanced driver aids on top of front and rear parking sensors, and its standard rearview camera.

For the 2022 BMW 8-Series, it has a 10.2-inch touch screen for its iDrive infotainment system. Together with this, there is also a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster in it. This one has an overwhelming layout that makes it distracting on the part of the driver.  It features two USB ports, 16 speakers, and a satellite radio. Driver assistance features standard to the ride are rearview camera, head-up display, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning, among others. It misses on front and rear parking sensors, though.


Under the hood of the Cayman are different engine options for every model. The Cayman T, its base trim hits 300 horsepower with its turbo-four. Next is a turbo-four Cayman S that produces 350 horsepower. For the models GTS and GT4, they have six cylinders that ooze 400 horsepower.

The BMW 8-Series, on the other hand provides various engine choices too. This starts with the turbo-inline-six that results in 335 horsepower. Results go as high as 617 horsepower, but these ones are slow to respond when you step on the brakes.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Cayman combines all the formidable features to come up with one great ride. It is better than the 2022 BMW 8-Series, considering that the latter is newer and could have been more updated.
