Porsche added another icing to its lineup, unveiled the Cayman and Boxster with the new GTS model plate. The GTS trim of both the German sportscar delivers more power and performance, with slight cosmetic changes over the Cayman S and Boxster S.
The new Porsches are found using the 3.4-litre flat-six engine under hoods, where they had became more stringent to Euro 6 norms. Both of them produce more 15bhp than the S variants, and specifically the power figure comes to 335bhp in Cayman GTS and 325bhp in Boxster GTS. Both the German duos too have become torque-y with the additional 0.96kgm in each, lending Cayman GTS with 38.71kgm and Boxster GTS with 37.60kgm. A six-speed manual gearbox remains standard on each car, with a seven-speed dual-clutch auto in the optional list. In the gist, Cayman GTS cracks 0-100kph in just 4.6sec while the Boxster GTS falls a bit slow in the place touching the mark of 100kmph from zero in 4.7sec. Top speed stood higher in the manual-equipped cars, the Cayman GTS turns out to be attaining 284kph and the Boxster GTS at 281kph.
On differentiation front, the Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS are distinguished from S siblings by redesigned front and rear bumpers, blackened bi-xenon lights and 20-inch Carrera S alloys shod with 235/35 front tyres and 265/35 rear tyres.
Meanwhile, inside, the leather with Alcantara trim seems eye catching. The customers can also opt for upgrades on technicalities with Sport Chrono package that sharpens the vehicle’s response, and the Porsche Active Suspension Management system (PASM) which brings a lowered suspension and electronically controlled adaptive dampers.
Sales of Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS are speculated to happen in May, but the global unveiling to take place in Beijing Motor Show 2014 by next month.
