2021 Porsche 718 Cayman T

I’ve been harping on and on about the new Porsche 718 GT4 and for good reason, it is a really great car. I love it and if they ever dropped about $25,000 off the sticker price, I’d find a way to make that happen. I doubt that will ever be the case, so they just aren’t worth it to me yet. However, there is a really great option if you want a 718 to feel special without spending over $100,000 just to get in the door. The 718 Cayman T. The best part? It starts at $69,000. Nice.

The Cayman T follows in the footsteps of the 911 Carrera T that Porsche launched for the 2019 model year. It combines some of Porsche’s best ingredients and somehow ends up with a reasonable starting price compared to the rest of the Cayman lineup. While the base Cayman starts at $60,000, the T rings in at $69,000, which is $3,000 less than the Cayman S. Just for scorekeeping purposes, the Cayman GTS 4.0 is $87,000, while the king of the hill GT4 is a little under $101,000. So doing the math, this is not a bad deal. 0-60 is 4.4 seconds, which is no slouch for a $70,000 Porsche, and about a half second slower than the GT4. However, you know you can slap $15,000 in options on this thing without thinking twice, especially since the lightweight carbon bucket seats are available for just $5,900. That is the deal considering what they bring on the open market. Still, if you can keep yourself constrained, I think this one is the one to buy.

This one still has delivery miles and a sticker right at $80,000. Sadly there are no bucket seats, but I understand that those seats don’t agree with everyone’s backs. Personally I’d want to custom build one, so this one was more of a floor model to see what is possible. The even better news? Porsche offers a Boxster T if you prefer the wind in your hair.

  1. Nice car, but the exhaust note of the GTS/GT4 are absolutely worth paying the premium. This car can’t hold a candle to that NA six, and exhaust note is one of the best parts of a car’s overall driving experience. I must say, I take my hat off to Porsche for not ruining the styling of their new cars. They have managed to keep their range very restrained and classy as opposed to so many other marques.

  2. At $80K this doesn’t appeal to me. I’d rather get a lightly optioned S or save up and get a stripper GTS. Also i would go with an M2 comp over the T any day to begin with….
