2018 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2018 BMW M2

With excellent reliability and smooth handling, the 2018 Porsche Cayman is bundled with plenty of features. The 2018 BMW M2 is an equally good choice, given its opulent cabin and smooth performance. Let’s compare both these models and see which one of these is a better bargain.

Design & Style

The BMW M2 has everything to command the attention on the streets, but it disappoints you with low-quality interiors. The finishing is not up to the mark, as you would expect from a luxury vehicle. The seating position of the driver is pretty good, but you can get a number of rattles and squeaks within 25000 miles.

On the other hand, the 2018 Porsche Cayman comes equipped with standard leather upholstery that can accommodate two people. The interior design is less characteristic of the sedan, and more inclined towards a sports car. There are lots of high-quality materials spread across the cabin.

Technology & Safety

Speaking of technology, the 2018 BMW M2 comes with a standard iDrive infotainment system that features a clean interface. Apple CarPlay comes standard, while Android Auto is not available. You get a peripheral vision thanks to the angling of the infotainment screen towards the driver. Some of the key safety features that are available include automatic high beams, lane departure warning, and automated emergency braking.

The 2018 Porsche Cayman comes equipped with a Porsche Communication Management Interface with a seven-inch touch screen display. Other key features include Bluetooth and USB ports. For a sound system, you can choose either 12-speaker Burmester or 10-speaker Bose. A couple of standard safety features include parking sensors and a rearview camera.


The 2018 BMW M2 receives its engine specification from M3 and M4, but the maximum Horse Power you can get here is 405 HP. The engine is coupled with a  6-speed manual transmission, while you also have an option to get 7-speed dual clutch automatic.

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is an outstanding model with a turbocharged engine that can ramp up to 300 HP. It offers excellent handling and smoother acceleration than any other vehicle of its class. With zero turbo lag and 6-speed manual transmission, you are surely going to love driving this vehicle.

The Bottom Line

Given the above comparison, it is quite evident that the 2018 BMW M2 is a class vehicle, but on the other hand, Porsche Cayman has got to offer some excellent features. So if you are considering to buy one of the two, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be opting for Porsche Cayman over M2.
