Hottest Cayman gets naturally aspirated flat six derived from 911 Carrera 991
A new naturally aspirated flat-six has made its way into Porsche’s latest Cayman GT4 and Spyder. And this time around you may even be able to buy one, too… Words by Richard Meaden.
Following the success of its ‘back to basics’ 911 T, Porsche has unveiled two 718 T models that follow the same principles. The ‘T’ typically stands for ‘Touring’ in Porsche speak, which translates to mean that these new models are focused on driving pleasure above and beyond anything else. The new 718 T models of Boxster and Cayman will run the same 300hp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder flat boxer engine found in the entry-level 718. Utilising 280lb ft torque, a 718 T will accelerate from 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds (4.7 secs with PDK) before going on to reach a top speed of 171mph.
