2018 Lotus Exige Sport 410 vs 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

Regardless of which of our brands we’re looking at, you can almost guarantee that Porsche has built a competitor for it. Porsche is one of the biggest names in the exotic game, and we love to showcase how – in many cases – superior our vehicles are. The subject of this comparison landing page is no different, as we’ve decided to pit the 2018 Lotus Exige Sport 410 vs 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman.

With both being great examples of smaller 2-seat sports cars, we thought it’d make a pretty great and fair comparison. What we found out is that the comparison might not be as fair as we originally assumed, but we compiled the data into a table just below, so see for yourselves.

Advantages of the 2018 Exige Sport 410

In the first row we looked at power, something we figured the two sports cars would be pretty similar in, but in truth the Exige Sport 410 delivers 110 horsepower more than the 718 Cayman! That’s a pretty substantial amount of extra power, which is going to enable it to go much faster than its competitor. Which, in turn, is exactly what the next two rows of the table depict.

The second row shows that the Lotus can drive 10 miles per hour faster than the Porsche at top speed, while the third row highlights the fact that it can get up to 60 miles per hour a whopping 1.6 seconds faster. That’s like a century in super car acceleration tests. If the Porsche has any reprieve, it must be fuel economy, right? Well, yes, technically that’s right – but it only achieves a single extra mile per gallon combined. That’s hardly even an advantage.
