Porsche Introduces Boxster GTS And Cayman GTS

Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman will be offered for the first time in brand’s history as GTS models. This basically means that they will feature more powerful engines and additional standard performance equipment. 

What visually differs the models from the “standard” ones is not only the badge but also the unique front and rear fascias, blacked out Bi-XenonTM headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), 20-inch Carrera S wheels and a sport exhaust system with black tailpipes.Both GTS models are equipped with Porsche’s 3.4-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine. In numbers this means that the Boxster GTS can develop up to 330 hp (243 kW), while the Cayman GTS – 340 hp (250 kW). In terms of torque, the first model generates 370 Nm (273 lb.-ft.), while the second one – 380 Nm (280 lb.-ft.). 

Furthermore, Porsche decided to make the Sport Chrono package a standard feature for the models which will offer the 6-speed manual or the optional 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission. This means whne the optional PDK transmission and Sport Plus button is activated, the Boxster GTS reaches 60 mph from standstill in 4.4 seconds, while the Cayman GTS does this for 4.3 seconds. The top track speed is 174 mph and 177 mph, respectively. 

Other exclusive equipment features here include the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and 235/35 front and 265/35 rear tires mated to 20-inch Carrera S wheels. Inside, the GTS models get an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, headliner, center console, and inserts on the standard Sport Seats Plus. Other visual elements include GTS logo embroidered into the headrests and printed on the tachometer face. 

Porsche Boxster GTS is priced from $73,500 USD, while Porsche Cayman GTS has a starting price of $75,200 USD. Both vehicles will be available at dealerships this summer.
