Launch of the Porsche 718 Cayman by World No. 1 professional women’s tennis player, Angelique Kerber
Relive the moment as the all-new 718 Cayman was unveiled by Angelique Kerber – Porsche global brand ambassador and World No. 1 in professional women’s tennis – in an exclusive media event held at Porsche Centre Singapore on 20 October 2016.
Launched to great fanfare, the 718 Cayman is named after the legendary Porsche 718, the iconic race car that delivered countless podium finishes in the 1960s.
“We are honoured to welcome our Porsche brand ambassador Angelique Kerber to Singapore, and are looking forward to witnessing her performance at the 2016 BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global. Just like Kerber, the all-new 718 Cayman is an impressive champion. It is strikingly dynamic, effortlessly agile, sharply athletic, and remarkably powerful—all the qualities that Kerber has displayed on her journey to World Number One in professional women’s tennis. It is therefore a true pleasure to have her unveil our latest model, the 718 Cayman, here in Singapore, thus completing the Porsche 718 model series,” said Karsono Kwee, Executive Chairman of Eurokars Group.
“Every legend has its beginning, and this particular one was born as the Porsche 718 back in 1953. The original Porsche 718 was built with a simple but daring plan in mind – to win on the racetrack. And that it did with confidence as it claimed over a thousand racing victories everywhere by the mid-1960s, from the Targa Florio to Le Mans. The legend is now back. The 718 Cayman expands the range of the 718 mid-engine sports car series, carrying on the fighting spirit of the original Porsche 718 with inspired pride and fierce conviction. For the first time, the price positioning of the hard-top two-seater models is below convertibles with a more distinctive design, a re-engineered chassis and the current generation of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system,” said Martin Limpert, Managing Director of Porsche Asia Pacific.
