We already love the Porsche 911 T and now Porsche has unveiled new T versions of the 718 Boxster and Cayman, which bring even more performance to the table on top of what the base models already offer.
The 2020 Porsche 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T come standard with the PASM Sport Suspension, which is normally optional on 718 S and GTS models. It offers shorter springs, retuned adaptive dampers and a 0.78-inch lower ride height compared to the standard 718 Boxster and Cayman models. The T models also get a mechanical limited slip differential with Porsche Torque Vectoring and 20-inch 911 Carrera S wheels that are painted in a special Titanium Grey finish.
To go along with the grey wheels, the exterior mirror covers and the rear model designation are painted in Agate Grey, in addition to the supplemental roll over protection bars on the 718 Boxster T. The tips of the standard Sport Exhaust System are finished in high-gloss black, while “718 Boxster T” or “718 Cayman T” in Agate Grey lettering adorns the sides of the car.
The 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T are powered by the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine as the standard Boxster and Cayman models with 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. The 718 T models are equipped with the Sport Chrono Package. If you opt for the PDK transmission and use the Launch Control feature, both models can reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, but if you want to shift your own gears, a six-speed manual is standard. The top track speed for all 718 T models is identical to the standard 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman models at 170 mph.
Inside the sport seats are wrapped in Sport Tex fabric, while 18-way adaptive sport seats are optional. Plus, door opening loops in black replace the traditional door handles, the headrests feature stitched “718” lettering in black and the interior trim on the dashboard trim and center console is high-gloss black. 718 T models are also equipped with the GT Sport steering wheel.
The 2020 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T will arrive in summer 2020, with the 718 Cayman T starts at $66,400, while the 718 Boxster T starts at $68,500, plus the $1,350 destination fee.
