On the heels of launching its all-new 911, Porsche has just revealed the 718 T, a new driver-focused edition of the beloved Cayman and Boxster that aims to enhance the driving experience. In the lineup, the new model will slot in between the base models and the up-level S versions.
The new edition brings 20-inch alloy wheels, a 20mm lower chassis, a six-speed gearbox, Porsche Torque Vectoring, and a mechanical locking rear axle differential.
Power is derived from a turbocharged four-cylinder flat engine that produces 295 horsepower and 285 pound-feet of torque that will help launch the 718 T from a standstill to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of 170 mph.
To cut weight, the 718 T gets a storage compartment in place of the PCM module and adds a Sport Chrono package as well as a PADM system that reduces vibrations in the engine and gearbox to optimize driving dynamics.
