The Porsche 718 Cayman T Is Brilliant, but Head-Scratching – Two Takes

TheSmokingTire – The Porsche 718 Cayman T combines the best chassis, cosmetic, and interior bits from the high-up ‘GTS’ model, with the base 2.0L Turbo engine making 300 horsepower. It’s one of the lightest cars Porsche makes, bar none, but also one of the least powerful. All of this would be great, except that it’s also rather expensive – just over $77,000 as tested. While the 991.2 Carrera T was our favorite ‘non-GT’ 911 of the last generation, does the Cayman T live in that same realm? Or is it just too expensive for not enough performance?
