2018 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2018 Nissan 370Z

Getting a glimpse of two of the most recognizable car models these days, the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman and the 2018 Nissan 370Z, will make you feel like you know where you are heading to with your purchase. You are hoping that you could buy both but of course, it will be best to weigh in on both options first before making a purchase. Be guided with this comparison when wanting to know which between these two must be your next car.

Design & Style

The sturdiness of construction for the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman makes it a winner in terms of design and style features. It also has been gifted with a mix of great grille design, crisp lines, and rugged and modern-looking wheels on the outside. Inside it, you will see that buttons no longer cramp up the dashboard, which is an obvious plus to this car. Add to that, it also has an exhilarating cabin design that will make you seem like moving several years to the future, one that is comparable to its more expensive brother, the Porsche 911.

As for the 2018 Nissan 370Z, you may find it mesmerizing too in terms of looks. It cannot be denied that much more than that, there is nothing to it that you will be impressed about. Consider the fact that it lacks the space inside and you will get dismayed as well. Think of flimsy door handles, and definitely, you will back out of the purchase.

Technology & Safety

The technology and safety features inside the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman, again, proves to be dominating factors over the 370Z. Come to think of how basic technologies have been fused in to work with an impressive and more advanced infotainment system. Think of both touchscreen and audio interfaces, and you will see how they truly work to your delight. The driver aids are out of this world as well.

In the case of the 370Z, you will be dismayed to find out that these technologies have been overlooked. Even the basic ones are not present in its basic trim level. It misses the climate controls and power seats present in the Cayman.


The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is gifted with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter size for its engine. This allows it to yield results of up to 300 horsepower and 280lb-ft of torque. In the case of the 2018 Nissan 370Z, you will get a car that has a V6, 3.7-liter engine. Despite the engine size, it is defeated by the Cayman simply because results are only up to 270lb-ft of torque and 300 horsepower for this car.

The Bottom Line

Why should you settle then for the 2018 Nissan 370Z when you know that the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman is a better car? The Cayman has everything that you are looking for in the car of your dreams.
