2019 Porsche 718 Cayman T

Porsche is known far and wide for their iconic flat-six, an engine that’s found its calling in the German automaker’s prominent 911 Carrera T. But bigger isn’t always better, and with alternative manufacturers taking a more relaxed approach to the consumer market, the brand has decided to introduce a new four-cylinder lineup under the guise of the 718 T.

Don’t be fooled, the new Cayman (and Boxster) 718 T is no slouch in the performance department, boasting a turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four that punishes naysayers with a considerable 295-horsepower and 280 ft-lb of torque. The cars come in two separate packages — one being a slick six-speed manual transmission, and the other, an optional PDK gearbox that’s actually faster off the line than the standard iteration. With a 0-60 that’s almost 0.2 seconds quicker than its six-speed counterpart (at 4.5 seconds), the PDK tops out at a blistering 170 miles-per-hour and utilizes a ride height almost 20 millimeters lower than the original, thanks to the Porsche Active Suspension Management system. Alongside the new engine and suspension upgrades, both cars feature active engine mounts, locking rear differentials, and torque vectoring technology that’s paired with an upgraded sporty interior with gloss black trim, door pull straps, and door sill plates — and don’t worry, the 718 lineup still comes with the automaker’s enviable “T” badging.
