Never before has Porsche give the GTS treatment to the Boxster or Cayman line.
Not just a badge or special trim combo, Porsche pumps up the power with 15 additional ponies for a total of 340 for the Cayman GTS and 330 for the Boxster GTS. Torque ratings are up an additional 7 ft on both models. When equipped with the PDK, 0-60 comes in just 4.3 seconds for the Cayman and 4.4 for the Boxster. Top speed for the Cayman GTS is 177 and 174 mph for Boxster GTS.
Even more focused on performance, the GTS comes standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management. New features include a more aggressive front and rear body fascia, blacked out Xenons, sport exhaust, and 20” Carrera S wheels shod with 235/35/20’s front and 265/35/20’s rear. Sport Chrono is included. Specific trim to the GTS includes an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, headliner as well as the center of the seats. GTS logo’s are scattered throughout on the tech, headrests and bumpers.
This is Porsche’s first use of the GTS on a mid-engined Porsche since the legendary 1963 904 Carerra GTS. The Boxster GTS base price is $73,500 and the Cayman GTS is $75,200. These represent a $11,400 step up from the Cayman S and a $10,200 from the Boxster S. Look for the GTS twins to be available mid Summer 2014.
Along with the new GTS sports cars, four exclusive new products for the Chinese market are also making their debut. Two new race cars, the 919 Hybrid and the 911 RSR, together with the 918 Spyder Hybrid super sports car round out the sporty showing by Porsche in Beijing.
