    Cayman T - hardcore or less for more?

       (0 reviews)
      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.

    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?"

  • PCM 3 bluetooth query

    Hi The telephone stuff all works fine, but is there a way that when my phone is paired with the PCM and I have a podcast on my phone that it can stream itself through the car hi-fi, ditto for the Google Maps voiceover on my phone..... I can't quite work out what buttons/settings to press. Best regards Julian

    First engine fault scare

    PSM failure Start stop disabled Engine light came on Running rough, no power   Oh no,  this sounds expensive!!!   Off/on and all seemed ok until a few miles later and same again.      6 new coils later and all good.   2 had failed,  1 was intermittent and one had faulted in the past.

    Aftermarket Sat Nav and head unit

    Hi,   Just bought my first Porsche, Cayman S Gen 1.   As the car does not have a sat nav fitted I am looking to fit an aftermarket unit, radio/sat nav/blue tooth. May be a dumb question but does the Cayman have a single or double DIN arrangement, also appreciate recommendations on what unit to go for.   Cheers   Steve

    Can I go this wide?

    I'm hoping to get your thoughts if I can run 285/30/18 for my rear Cayman 987.2S lowered with B8 and R springs. I'm on BBS SR rims and have 7mm spacers on the front and 15mm spacers on the rear. Currently running PSS 245/4018 for the fronts and can get on a new set of PS2 285/430/18s to replace my end of life PS2 265/40/18s. Maybe its the covid supply chain issues and me not being on 19s but its really hard on my shores to get a good set of tires for now. Michelin still does not bring in the

  • Porsche Myths Busted: Car Insurance & N-rated Tyres

    There will be many eyes rolling at the title I'm sure and much has been written on many an internet forum on the topic of N-rated tyres.   But I'm not here to enter the murky depths of whether an N-rated tyre has a different rubber compound to it's non-rated equivalent, nor am I going to make any claims as to the performance differences and whether by not using N-rated tyres you will find yourself in a ditch one day.     Today, I'm focussing on something more specific, and answering th
