2021 Porsche 718 Cayman vs. 2021 BMW M2

The 2021 Porsche 718 Cayman and 2021 BMW M2 are premium vehicles that will be greatly loved by their owners. They provide different driving experiences with few specs in common and are likely to be for different target audiences. However, in case you are choosing between them, we will take a look at both of them to see just how they compare.

Design & Style

Right off the bat, the 718 Cayman is a two-seater while the BMW M2 is a four-seater. The 718 Cayman comes with an extensive range of 18 exterior color options to suit its owner’s color preference while the BMW M2 is more toned down with just five color options.

In terms of the interior, they are both similar with the standard features, including multi-zone air conditioning, heated front seats, and climate control. The 718 Cayman, however, does come with additional features like cooled front seats and remote trunk release to provide an extra touch of comfort and convenience.

Technology & Safety

Standard in both vehicles are rear-view cameras, rear parking aid, break assist, pressure monitor, stability control, traction control, brake ABS system, passenger and driver front and knee airbag, and front side and head impact airbags.

For enhanced driving experience, the 718 Cayman does have an optional upgrade for adaptive cruise control, which has the ability to correctly appreciate the speed of the vehicle in front. This significantly expands the continuous operation time of the cruise control function, as automation controls both the acceleration and braking of the vehicle. This feature is not available for the BMW M2.


When it comes to the engines, the BMW M2 has an edge in speed with a horsepower of 405 hp @ 5230 rpm compared to 718 Cayman’s 300 hp @ 6500 rpm. However, superior balance is provided by a lower center of gravity involving the 718 Cayman’s turbocharged flat engine.

The 718 Cayman is also more fuel efficient with a cruising range highway of 369.2 miles compared to the M2’s 323.8 miles. Coupled with its larger fuel tank, you will enjoy the benefit of making fewer stops to the gas station. If you are concerned about the environmental impact of the car, the 718 Cayman produces much lower CO2 emissions at 8.1 tons/year while the M2 produces 8.9 tons/year.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a four-seater with high speed potential, the BMW M2 is likely the option for you. However, if you are looking for a high-performance car that checks all the boxes and is a head-turner, then the 718 Cayman is clearly the winner.
