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.
