Porsche Introduces Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS Models

 

 

 

Atlanta. For the first time, the Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman will be offered as
GTS models. As is typical for Porsche, these models feature more powerful engines
and additional standard performance equipment. The new Boxster GTS and Cayman
GTS models are visually defined by more than just a badge: they offer as standard
equipment 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 as standard. The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS are built
specifically for maximum driving pleasure.

 

 

 

The 3.4-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine of the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS models
delivers an additional 15 hp compared to their “S” model counterparts. This means that
the Boxster GTS has 330 hp and the Cayman GTS has 340 hp. Torque has been
increased by 7 lb.-ft. in each model: 273 lb.-ft. in the Boxster GTS and 280 lb.-ft. in the
Cayman GTS. The Sport Chrono package is now a standard feature with either the 6-
speed manual or the optional 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission.
This means with the optional PDK transmission and Sport Plus button activated, the
Boxster GTS reaches 60 mph from a standstill in 4.4 seconds and 4.3 seconds in the
Cayman GTS. Top track speed for the Boxster GTS is 174 mph with a manual
transmission and 177 mph for a Cayman GTS equipped with a manual transmission.

 

 

 

The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS feature Porsche Active Suspension Management
(PASM) as standard, which offers the choice of sportier or more comfortable ride
settings at the press of a button. The 235/35 front and 265/35 rear tires on 20-inch
Carrera S wheels provide the perfect setup for a balanced driving experience. Like other
Porsche GTS models, the interior of the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS feature an
Alcantara® wrapped steering wheel, headliner, center console, and inserts on the
standard Sport Seats Plus. Additional visual elements include GTS nomenclature
embroidered into the headrests and printed on the tachometer face.

A specific standard of performance and uniqueness is required to wear the GTS badge.
For example, the legendary 1963 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS was dominant on the
racetrack and a spectacle on the street. The 1980s and 1990s saw the 924 GTS and
928 GTS refine this characteristic. In 2007 the GTS emblem was reintroduced on the
Cayenne GTS and later implemented in the 911 and Panamera model lines.

 

The Boxster GTS is priced from $73,500 and the Cayman GTS is priced from $75,200,
excluding destination charges of $995. Both models will be available for delivery this
summer.
