Porsche 718 T Boxster and Cayman surface with an additional kick

Porsche 718 T

Since the 911 Carrera Touring launched and proved popular with enthusiasts, Porsche has expanded the T lineup with the Porsche 718 T Boxster and Cayman.

To distinguish the 718 T to the rest of the lineup, Agate Grey mirror coverings are attached either side with 20-inch high-gloss titanium grey wheels fitted to each corner. Black stripes and a black exhaust system are also present.

Inside, the 718 T gets a sports steering wheel and black sports seats with “718” stitched into the headrests. Also present is gloss black trim and door pull straps. One may also notice the infotainment system has been removed in order to save weight. It can be added back into the car at no additional cost.

Both versions of the 718 T are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine rated at 295 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque. The compact unit can be connected to a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed manual gearbox.

This punchy little unit allows the 718 T to launch from 0-100 km/h in five seconds with the manual box fitted, while opting for the PDK drops the time down to 0.2 seconds. When engaging Sport Plus mode, the Porsche 718 T rockets to 100 in almost 0.5 seconds faster before hitting a top speed of 275 km/h.

While the engine remains the same to the standard model, the Porsche 718 T does feature a Porsche Active Suspension Management system which lowers the car by 20mm. It also features a locking rear diff, torque vectoring technology and active engine mounts.

Pricing for the new models has not yet been revealed.
