2019 Porsche 718 Cayman T Will Be An Incredible Car!

Porsche is about to do it again. Do what again? Oh, just make an incredible driver’s car even better, that’s what. Earlier this summer, we got the chance to take a spin in what may very well go down as the best 991.2 Porsche 911 of them all: The Carrera T.

A Porsche “T” has but one purpose and that is to cover ground, drive, be driven, move, hug roads, take curves and corners, and go. The 718 Cayman T will thus be granted the same attention as only the necessary bits for the drive will be retained, and weight will be shed. There will however be one major difference, or so it seems.

The Carrera T is based on the regular 370-horsepower Carrera, and not the 420-horsepower S. In the 718’s case, sources are saying that the Cayman T might start off as an S, and not the base car. As well, those stating that the S will be the selected building block for the T are hinting that the turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder may even get a 10-horsepower boost, for a total of 360.

This seems unlikely as a 360-horsepower 718 will be far quicker than the 370-horsepower 911 T. The base 718’s mill produces 300-horsepower which, given the T will shed close to 50 lbs of weight, will still make for a very rapid car.

Like for the 911, the 718 T signals the end of a generation. The 992 911 is a done deal but we know nothing about the next 718, expected sometime in 2020.
