Well the rumours are becoming more beefed up in regard to the possibility of the Cayman T arriving and following in the footsteps of it's larger brother, the Carrera T. It could also go someway towards bringing back some of what Porsche gave us with the 987 Cayman R and have never really delivered on again either with the 981 or 718, the GTS being a bit soft and the GT4 being a bit, well GT.
Our favorite mid-engined coupe from Stuttgart will be going under the knife and and our sources suggest that the Cayman T will be losing c. 30kg over the standard 718 and gaining 10-20hp more making for a slightly keener drive, but falling a bit short of the GTS in the power stakes.
The Cayman T will be introduced as a 2019 model year car, although deliveries falling quite late into the year with the first likely to hit the UK roads in early summer.
Sitting just above the 718 S but below the GTS, the Cayman T will come with a sports exhaust system, and 20-inch alloy wheels. It will also get 20 mm closer to the ground. The Sport Chrono Package is expected to be offered as standard which includes Porsche Active Driveline Mounts and launch control. The manual gearbox optioned models will come equipped with a rev-matching function.
The Cayman T is expected to include the following specification
- 20 inch wheels
- 20 mm lower ride height
- Sports Chrono Pack with Porsche Active Driveline Mounts
- Launch Control
- Rev Matching function (Manual)
- Infotainment Delete
- Lightweight Glass
- Fabric Door Pulls
- Lightweight Seats
