    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?"

  • To remap or not to remap that is

    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

    Cayman R Geo - Center Gravity

    Hi all,    My Cayman R is off to Center Gravity in a few weeks to have a full geo setup done. Has anyone on this forum used Center Gravity before?    My car will see track time next year and I can see three possible options:   1. Full OEM geo setup 2. Maximum front camber via the top mount oversized holes with OEM Toe, caster and rear 3. GT3 Front LCA with -2.5deg Camber with OEM toe, caster and rear - Ran these on my racing car and they were perfect but c

    Decals on my baby

    I bought some decals from https://www.designstuffonline.co.uk/vehicle_graphics/model_make_specific/porsche/porsche_987_cayman_decals.html   They went on really well but I would do it slightly different if I did it again... They are longer than they need to be and you cut them when they reach the door, I would leave maybe 15mm surplus so you can wrap it right round and back the door skin, you can get your fingers to it when you open the door, same for the bumper side.

    Growing up gracefully.....

    Not for me 🤣   At the very least the Cayman 987 i've bought today - and should be collecting next weekend almost feels like a slightly grown-up hot-hatch. Grabbing it by the throat and wringing its neck is what makes it feel alive ? Tell me i'm wrong......in that these are pretty much no frills drivers cars ?   Very pleased to be here and learn a little about these cars. Serial detailer, completely anal about my vehicles and likely to bore you all with my pictures of shi

    Cayman OC - July Meet

    Thinking we need another breakfast meet before the school holidays kick in, although that might be a bit short notice.     Who'd be up for Shuttleworth in a few weeks time?  Sunday morning per usual?  If so, i'll let the museum know.

  • The Slow Decay of Porsche Prices

    I suppose it's no surprise that like many a petrolhead, spending time cruising the classifieds is not a strange habit.  It could be likened in fact to a lady window shopping in her local designer outlet village and coming home with nothing but a receipt from Pret a Manger.  When you spend that much time hanging out in the classifieds and coupled with a bit of talk among those in the trade you start to gauge a picture.  So understanding the dynamics of used Porsche prices at the current time is n
