The Porsche 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T Are for Purists

The Porsche 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T Are for Purists”

Nevertheless, the 718 Cayman T and 718 Boxster T are over €8,000 more expensive than the base models, while still being nearly €4,000 more affordable than the S versions.

The 718 T models come standard with the 300-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the base Boxster and Cayman, rather than the more powerful 2.5-liter from the S version. The model also has active engine mounts, a locking rear differential and torque vectoring technology. Other "Boxster T" or "Cayman T" logos adorn the black instrument dials. You can finish the auto in a variety of hues including Guards Red, Racing Yellow, Carrera White, GT Silver, and Miami Blue. A couple logos make appearances throughout the model on the headrests and on the door entry strips, for example, but nothing too lavish. Porsche is also offering Lava Orange and Miami Blue as special colours. Pick the six-speed manual transmission, and 60 miles per hour arrives from a standstill in 4.9 seconds.

The engine enables both models to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds with the manual, while the PDK is 0.2 seconds quicker. Top speed comes in at 275 km/h. The Sport Chrono package is standard as well, adding selectable driving modes on the steering wheel and launch control for cars equipped with PDK. Sport and Sport Plus activate sportier characteristics in both the engine management system and the accelerator, with the automatic dual-clutch function supporting you as you move down the gears in the manual transmission.

New Porsche 718 T Boxster And Cayman Bring Some Zing To 4-Cylinder Turbo Range

A 20mm lower PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) sport chassis, for one, which isn't even available on a non-S 718. Driving comfort is unaffected on uneven roads.

South African prices have yet to be announced, but Porsche has stated that the 718 T will have a price advantage of between 5 and 10 percent over the base model, when adjusted for equipment.

The consumption and Carbon dioxide emission values were determined in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
