Auto123 reviews the 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman T.
Have you ever turned your thoughts over to what might constitute the perfect sports car? Go on, admit it, we all have. Sure, right now, there are far more pressing concerns in the world: the war in Ukraine, global warming and that damned pandemic that seems to be gearing up for yet another encore. But we can’t be all serious, all the time, now can we? Besides, for fans of thrilling driving, the question of whether the perfect sports car exists is a very serious one!
Owning a sports car is a privilege that can be experienced in many ways, but what matters - just as much as in any other type of vehicle, and maybe more so - is that the owner is happy behind the wheel. That's clearly the primary mission of the 2022 Porsche 718 Cayman T, a new variant available as part of the brand's more "affordable" sports car range. The T stands for Touring here and according to Porsche, this version stands for driving pleasure in its purest form.
Let me add that the Porsche 718 Cayman - as well as its soft-top cousin, the 718 Boxster - is already associated with that driving pleasure so sought-after by hard-core enthusiasts, and it grows a little bit more each rung of the 718 trim ladder you climb. But driving enthusiasts don't necessarily need a track monster like the Cayman GT4 RS for their daily routine. A basic Porsche Cayman, in S or even GTS trim, can do the job just fine. So what about this T edition, inspired by the 911 T unveiled in 1968?
