    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?"

  • Re map or boost chip ?

    hi all  I’m pondering on the idea of either a remap or trying one of the boost type chips that plug into the throttle  has anyone had experience of either ? I’m driving a 2006 2.7 987.1  Carnewal gt exhaust  k & n air filter    Scott

    Simply Porsche, Beaulieu Motor Museum, 2nd June 2019

    The date has been announced for Simply Porsche next year, the 2nd June.     We'll arrange a stand at the show as we have for the last few years, we'll obviously need to know numbers for this event and will be allocated a space dependant on the number of expected members attending.     We can arrange meet-ups, hotel get-togethers etc closer to the time.

    New flat 6 model cayman (possibly?)

    Heard about this at Anglesey track day yesterday, and found this link:   https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.automobilemag.com/news/porsche-718-cayman-boxster-flat-six-cylinder-engine-gts/amp/   seems like ‘old’ news, but not heard it previously. Anyone on here aware?   If its true / accurate then perhaps Porsche have considered the flat-4 turbos not to have been a commercial success? 🤔

    From hero to zero. The story of replacing your manifolds.

    This story begins with a dream. A dream to have loud noises, more hp and shiney new car parts. Some of this came true but let's take you through the story that is.   Replacing stock manifolds with high flow cats (sold to the misses because the gasket on one side started leaking so obviously both might as well be done and an upgrade should happen at the same time to save money....)      As Google will tell you and from what you can gather when a indie specialist want

  • Rising Sun - Hardcore Cayman

    From the land of the rising sun has emerged a 987 Cayman like no other.  It is often phrase head in Cayman circles "what if Porsche put the GT3 engine in a 987".  Well, now its been done, and this time in a package which appears so thoroughly executed.     Allow me to introduce M’s Machine Work's Cayman GT3.     The car is the work of Takayuki Mizumoto, a Japanese motorsport engineer.  Mizumoto-san is the proprietor of M’s Machine Works, an outfit that designs, bui
