    Porsche booted the flat-6 engine from the Boxster and Cayman when it updated the cars for 2017, and added a 718 to their names in the process.

Our latest shots show a regular Cayman with the same exhaust tips featured on prototypes for the Cayman GT4, suggesting the same engine resides within. The engine is thought to be an uprated version of the 3.8-liter flat-6 fitted to...
