Carve Up Corners in 2020 With the 718 Boxster T and 718 Cayman T

By Justin Cupler | November 22nd, 2019

The 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman and its drop-top sibling, the 718 Boxster, are already great performers, but Porsche is always looking to up the ante. In 2020, it will up said ante with the release of the 718 Boxster T and the 718 Cayman T.

These special sports cars will turn their focus toward pushing their already incredible handling to new highs, starting with standard PASM Sport Suspension, which is an option on the S and GTS 718 models. This setup includes lowering springs and retuned adaptive dampers that drop the ride height by 0.78 inches for improved handling. Also added is a mechanical limited-slip differential, Porsche Torque Vectoring, and Titanium Gray Porsche 911 Carrera 20-inch wheels.

On the outside, the 718 T models will set themselves apart from the rest of the lineup with subtle tweaks. Aside from the 911-sourced wheels, these corner carvers will gain Agate Gray-painted mirror caps and rear badges.  The 718 Boxster will add Agate Gray rollover bars too. Around back, the standard sport exhaust system will boast a high-gloss-black finish with “718 Boxster T” or “718 Cayman T” lettering printed on then in Agate Gray.

The upgrades will continue inside, where the 718 T models will gain Sport Seats Plus wrapped in Sport Tex fabric, door opening loops in place of the door handles, “718” embroidered headrests, high-gloss-black trim, and the GT Sport steering wheel.

Buyers seeking a more colorful interior can opt for the 718 T Interior Package, which includes  Guards Red, Racing Yellow, GT Silver, or Lizard Green contrast stitching on the door handles, center console armrest, and the seat inserts. It also adds the color of choice to the “718” on the headrests and the seatbelts.

Under their hoods, the 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman T and 718 Boxster T will retain the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. What they do gain is the standard Sport Chrono Package. When equipped with the optional PDK transmission and when using launch control, these special 718 models hit 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.

Traditionalists will appreciate these models’ standard six-speed manual transmission with a short-throw shifter.
