Porsche has transferred the puristic design of the 1968 911 T to its 718 two-seater sports cars. The new model in the Boxster and Cayman ranges combines the 300 horsepower (220 kW) turbo four-cylinder flat engine with a particularly emotional Porsche driving experience. The high-performance character of the T models is emphasised by an extensive equipment package, which includes 20-inch alloy wheels, the PASM sports chassis lowered by 20 millimetres – which is being offered in combination with the 2.0-litre turbocharged engine for the first time in this range – the shortened gearshift, on which the gears are emblazoned in red, and the Sport Chrono package. These features can only be enjoyed in combination with the basic engine in the 718 T. Porsche is offering both the Boxster and Cayman variants with six-speed gearbox and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), including mechanical rear axle differential locking. Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) is also available as an option.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine reaches its maximum torque of 380 Nm at 2,150/min and has an unladen weight of 1,350 (PDK: 1,380) kilograms. Thanks to a weight-to-power ratio of 4.5 (4.6) kg/HP, it can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.1 (4.7) seconds. The vehicle’s top speed is 275 km/h (170 mph).
The Porsche 718 Cayman T costs from 63,047 € in Germany and the 718 Boxster T from 65,070 €, including value added tax and country-specific equipment. The new models are available to order now.
