2021 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2021 Audi R8

Car buyers in New York will truly adore the 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman for its roomy and comfortable seating inside. There is plenty of cargo space awaiting luggage for occupants. This makes it one of the best luxury sports cars for this year.

In the case of the 2021 Audi R8, expect that there is a high-end interior, one thing that the brand is always proud of. There is a long list of technologies to expect too. It has added a new trim which is the rear-wheel drive.

Design & Style

Looking kind of small outside, the Porsche Cayman should never be a turn down in terms of overall interior appeal. This car uses the most premium materials in the world of luxury sports cars. This has a cozy, roomy and comfy cabin that can seat two people. You will love the combination of soft-touch surfaces to its leather upholstered seats.

When looking at the R8, you will know right away that it can accommodate up to two passengers, which already includes the driver. This ride has the most comfortable bolstering to give you that ultimate enjoyment during the ride. What makes the car problematic is the fact that it has compromised outward visibility due to the presence of thick roof pillars inside it. It lacks cargo space too.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Cayman uses a seven-inch touch screen for its infotainment system, the Porsche Communication Management. When in use, you will notice how it easily responds to user inputs. The ride has a total of eight speakers, two USB ports, an HD radio, a satellite radio, and Bluetooth interface. It also has front and rear parking sensors, together with a rearview camera for safety.

Meanwhile, the 2021 version of the R8 is equipped with a 12.3-inch touch screen. It sounds humongous, but it fails to impress when it comes to the space that it occupies. There are even separate knobs used for the navigation system, audio, and infotainment functionalities. Advanced safety driver aids include front and rear parking sensors and the rearview camera.


The 718 Cayman carries a variety of engines. For the base engine, it uses a four-cylinder turbo in order to generate 300 horsepower. The 350-horsepower result for the Cayman S, on the other hand, comes from a turbo-four setup. The other two models carry six-cylinder engines to generate 400 horsepower.

Naturally aspirating 532 horsepower for the 2021 Audi R8 is a V10 engine. The problem is the brakes can become noisy when you want to reach this result.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman has a combination of the best technologies and powerful engines just enough to give you a relaxing weekend with someone close to you. It beats the Audi R8 in all aspects.
