Porsche 718 Cayman coupe - Practicality & boot space

For a two-seater sports car, the Porsche 718 Cayman is pretty practical

Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

Because the Porsche 718 Cayman is a mid-engined car – meaning the engine lies between the rear wheels and the passenger compartment – you actually get two boots: one in the front and one in the back. Factor in a comfortable and well-designed interior and you have a car that can easily be used for the daily commute.

Porsche 718 Cayman interior space & storage

A low ride height means getting in and out of the 718 Cayman involves a little stooping, but these procedures can be carried out with a reasonable degree of elegance provided you’ve not ticked the box for Porsche’s carbon-backed bucket seats, which involve a little more of a tumble. Once inside, there’s a sense of being pleasantly cocooned rather than unduly cramped. Legroom and headroom are plentiful, the seats comfortable and the view out pretty decent. While Porsche specialises in sports cars, it does so with a close eye on practicality. That means you get a generous glovebox, a useful central storage compartment and a pair of cup-holders.

Boot space

The two boots in the 718 Cayman can hold a total of 405 litres of luggage: 130 in the front and 275 in the rear. Although you won’t be able to take hugely bulky or long items with you, the 718 Cayman actually has more total boot space than a Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus. Packing for a weekend away should be a cinch, while if you’re prepared to use squashy bags rather than rigid suitcases, longer holidays are a realistic prospect.
