    Cayman T - hardcore or less for more?

      Title: Cayman T - hardcore or less for more?

    Porsche have officially converted rumour into fact with the announcement of the 718 Cayman T. 

     

    In the same vein that the Carrera T does, the new 718 Cayman T sits between the base and S versions of it's Cayman siblings and boasts a similar level of specification amendments designed to appeal to those seeking a more driver focused offering.  

     

    In terms of high level spec, the T is offered with the 296bhp 2.0 litre engine from the base car, which some will be disappointed with, albeit the performance from this unit is arguably still very much enough for a road car.  What you do get though over the base car is PVT which includes a limited slip diff, again appealing to those with a penchant for anything over an 8 tenths driving style. 20mm lower suspension and sports chrono are also standard on the T.

    Performance figures suggest a top speed of 171mph, with 0-60mph taking just 4.5secs (if you spec PDK) and 0-100mph around 11 seconds.

    The 718 T’s attributes are shared with the 911 Carrera T, in that the sat nav and media systemhave been removed to save some weight and give the Cayman a more hardcore feeling.  But you can add it all back in for nothing (in the same way as you could with the 987 Cayman R), and most owners likely will.  

     

    p18_0917_a3_rgb.jpg

     

    In terms of pricing. The 718 Cayman T starts at £51,145, gaining £5,071 over the base car, which sits an uncomfortably £700 shy of the 718 S.

     

    The expectation however is that this will be a more focused and appealing car in the same way as the Carrera T is and many will be asking "is this finally Porsche's replacement for the iconic and sublime Cayman R?"

  • Looking for Cayman 987.2 S

    Hi, I'm finally dipping my toe into the world of Porsche!   I have wanted a Cayman for sometime now and have done loads of research into the different engines, gen1 Vs gen 2 ect.   I have decided to go for a gen 2 S manual, not too worried about the colour (apart from black or white!), I have searched all the usual sites, eBay, autotrader, motors.com, piston heads for the last month or so but nothing really jumps out.   I want all the usually, reasonable to low mile

    Fuel Gauge Problem

    Hi All   I stalled my 2009 Gen2 987 Cayman S a couple of days ago when I was turning and reversing up a small incline to turn the car around on a street. Shortly after (20 yards down the toad) I noticed the fuel gauge was reading zero and the message to add fuel came up. I knew that the tank was around 3/4 full so there’s obviously a problem with my fuel gauge/sender circuit.  Thinking the incline may have jammed the float I removed the sender checked the resistance when movi

    How do I edit a post?

    Maybe I'm just stupid, but how do I edit a post of mine?  I can't see how to do this!

    Check Side Direction Indicator warning but bulbs fine?

    Bit of an odd one, I am getting the 'Check Side Direction Indicator' warning on the dash with the associated fast flashing of the green turn direction indicator, which is usually a blown bulb.  However all 3 indicators on the left side are working fine and flashing at normal speed.  Other side is fine as are the hazard warning lights.   Any ideas what could be triggering the warning even though all bulbs etc are fine and indicating normally?  Bulb on the way out causing car to think it

  • 718 Cayman now available on your games console!

    Well finally it’s arrived, you can now drive your favourite car whilst your P&J is tucked up in the garage.  Yes that’s right folks, on your games console (probably Xbox only).     Forza Horizon 4 has released screen shots of the latest edition to the game in the shape of a 718 GTS, looking pretty true to real life.       We look forward to hearing how it compares to the real thing and whether it’s been a faithful reproduction of the real thing.     Let us k
