2018 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2018 Lexus LC 500

Are you caught up between the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman and its counterpart, the 2018 Lexus LC 500? If you have been setting your eyes on the Porsche for some time now and a competitor like the LC 500 suddenly comes out, you need to assess which between these car models it better over the other. Consider the comparison we have made to enlighten you.

Design & Style

Gifted with a design that is stunning enough to make you want to own one, the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman will truly impress you with what you see on the outside. Its 18-inch wheels, LED running lights, xenon headlights, and performance summer tires are some of its greatest offerings, design and style wise. Wait until you see how the interiors compare to its more expensive brother, the Porsche 911, and you will say that you are getting your money’s worth.

Perhaps, one of the things that you will notice with the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is its larger 20-inch wheels. Of course, you will also admire that the rugged exterior compares a bit, but not quite great as the Porsche Cayman’s. Inside it, the cabin is large and spacious. However, with interior bolstering, comfort has been compromised.

Technology & Safety

Inside the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman, you will be more than satisfied with the 7-inch touchscreen and comprehensible infotainment system. With six-way adjustable seats, heated mirrors, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, you will be impressed even more. It also comes standard with cruise control that works excellently. Adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring are also available.

Fitted with 12-inch speaker system, adjustable driving modes, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and an infotainment system, you will say that you will love everything that the Lexus LC 500 offers in this section. However, it has to be pointed out that the infotainment system is so frustrating to use. Its adaptive cruise control is so sensitive to the touch as well.


Powering the 2018 Lexus LC 500 is its V8, 5.0-Liter engine which manages to give it a boost in the performance department, resulting in 471 horsepower and 298lb-ft of torque. It is obvious that acceleration can be problematic for this car with the road noises it creates. In the case of the four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine of the Cayman, you will love the results pegged at 300 horsepower and 280lb-ft of torque. This allows it to give a smoother ride to users.

The Bottom Line

Now that you have spotted the differences that these two cars have, it is clearer why the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman remains a winner. You should buy this car model.
