New Porsche Cayman T Might Offer The Best Value In The Range

The new Porsche Cayman T might pose as the more driver-focused version of an already fun-to-drive coupe but the truth is that it also offers great value to the right customer.

Following the success of the 911 Carrera T, Porsche is now offering the same treatment to customers of its entry-level Cayman. The package aims directly to enthusiasts, bundling features together that are otherwise optional in order to make the Cayman T an even more rewarding drive.

Porsche has thrown features like a PASM sports chassis that’s lowered by 20mm lowered over the standard models, a shorter gearshift, the Sport Chrono package, Porsche’s Torque Vectoring, a limited-slip differential and 20-inch alloys at the Cayman T as standard.

What’s interesting here is that if you were to spec all those features on a regular 718 Cayman, you would end up with a much more expensive Porsche than the Cayman T; with that in mind, it’s no wonder that Autocar sees the new mid-engine Porsche as great value in the compact sports car segment.

Porsche’s compact mid-engine Cayman and Boxster have been praised for quite some time as the handling benchmark in their respective classes, but the adoption of the turbocharged four-pot powertrains in the latest 718 versions has raised some criticisms among the brand’s fans.

The turbocharged 2.0-liter engine remains unchanged over the regular models, meaning 296hp (300PS) and 280lb-ft (380Nm) of torque. Customers can choose between the standard six-speed manual or the optional seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission. Porsche claims a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 5.1 seconds (4.7 seconds with the PDK) while top speed is set at 171mph (275km/h).
