Porsche is putting the finishing touches to a new lightweight 718 Cayman T, Auto Express understands. 

The model will follow on from the recently launched 911 T, and offer a more focused driving experience without the flagship GT cars’ hefty price tag. Set to arrive in the UK next spring, the 718 Cayman T will sit between the Cayman S and GTS; it’s expected to use a tuned version of the 2.5-litre flat-four, developing around 360bhp.

Weight saving features such as thinner glass, fabric door pulls and sports seats will feature, along with more extreme measures such as the removal of the audio system. These moves should trim around 20kg from the car’s kerbweight.

A collection of Porsche’s most popular add-ons will also be fitted as standard, such as a sports exhaust, the sport chrono package (lowering the ride height by 10mm) and 20-inch alloy wheels. 

Such a model indicates that the current 718 Cayman is coming towards the end of its lifecycle and will soon be replaced by a new generation of sports cars. We can expect to see an all-new model launch in 2020.
