Lightweight and performance-focused Porsche 718 Cayman T might be on its way soon

After VIN registrations revealed months ago that Porsche was planning a new 718 Cayman T, new details have surfaced that about the hardcore model. According to a report by Auto Express, the German sports carmaker has almost completed the new lightweight Porsche 718 Cayman T and is now putting the finishing touches on this new hardcore model.

As reported by Auto Express, the new Porsche 718 Cayman T will served as a follow-up to the recently released 911 T as its smaller sibling. The new 718 Cayman T will be much lighter than the 718 Cayman, as made possible by employing a number of weight saving features like thinner glass, fabric door pulls and sports seats. In addition, the 718 Cayman T has seen its audio system removed from its cabin.

Overall, the 718 Cayman T would be around 20 kg lighter – in terms of kerbweight -- than the 718 Cayman. The VIN listings uncovered in July show that the 718 Cayman T will have a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 3,649 lbs(1,655 kg), which is lighter than a manual-transmission Cayman S (3,670 lbs or 1,665 kg).

Porsche reveals GTS versions of 718 Boxster and Cayman for 2018 model year

It’s not as if the Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman are not already impressive cars. The automaker has just given us more reasons to love the twins. The 2018 model year will come with a new GTS variant – for both the 718 Boxster GTS and the 718 Cayman GTS. Both models come with a number of visual and performance upgrades, one of which is additional 15 horsepower - thanks to the new intake plenum and tweaked turbocharged 2.5 liter flat four, now giving it as much as 365 horsepower, that is 35 HP more than the previous GTS models.

Of course, torque also increases to 317 pound feet, from 1,900 up to 5,000 revs. Both models come standard with a six speed manual transmission, but customers could opt for an optional seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.

In just 3.9 seconds, the 2018 GTS models can hit 60 miles per hour from a standstill, before continuing to a top speed of 180 miles per hour. With new features like the Active Suspension System and Porsche Torque Vectoring with a mechanical rear differential, performance for both models is pushed to their limits. The Sport Chrono package adds a couple of driving modes including Sport, Sport Plus, Launch Control (PDK only), and active driveline mounts.
