My guess, because of the prohibitive cost and complexity associated with WLTP [new emission testing] 2019 European/UK vehicles will be limited to:
Cayman GT4 3.0 400 BHP becomes PDK only, £75k + bribery/corruption [Launch Geneva March 2019]
Cayman GTS 2.5 365 BHP becomes PDK only. £62K
Cayman T 2.5 365 BHP is offered as 7MT only with PASM, PVT, SC, lighter glass, shorter gear lever, fabric door pulls, Sportex T interior, 20’ wheels, audio/nav/ACP standard with delete option, £60K [Launch Geneva March 2019]
Cayman S 2.5 360 BHP becomes PDK only. £54K
Cayman 2.0 is offered with both PDK and 6MT. £46K
Wishful thinking, in the hope the manual gearbox remains an option.
“the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) was brought in to include a portion where emissions are tested on the road (RDE).
Part of the new procedure means all variations of the vehicle have to be tested, with optional extras also included as they may add or reduce weight – for example, alloy wheels may cause a decrease, while a better audio system may add to a vehicle’s total mass. Options such as cruise control can also affect engine performance either improving or increasing emissions.”
