Porsche 718 Cayman Models - The principle of the mid-engined sports car

The principle of the mid-engined sports car

What is it that makes the new 718 models so special? Their performance, their handling, their design and the generous amount of space afforded by two luggage compartments. Above all: a mid-engine concept that makes all this possible in the first place.

The engine is positioned no further than 30 cm behind the driver. Effect number one: the resounding thump on the back. Effect number two: the extraordinarily dynamic cornering capabilities, thanks to the car’s low and central centre of gravity. The horizontally opposed arrangement of the engine’s cylinders also helps to reduce oscillations, which has a positive impact on smooth running. Another plus for driving dynamics: the concentrated power of the engine is transmitted directly to the rear axle.

How do we best exploit this power? By systematically reducing the weight of the vehicle. And by optimally distributing the weight left over. The compact construction of the car as a two-seater plays an important part in this respect. And that’s without sacrifices in terms of comfort and everyday practicality.

However, as soon as the mid-mounted engine starts, there’s really only one thing that matters: the world with its countless twists and turns. And you – right in the middle of it all.
