Porsche reveals Cayman and Boxter GTS models

German carmaker Porsche Ag., on Wednesday unveiled two new top models – the Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxter GTS.

These two new models from the Stuttgart based automaker feature more powerful engines, revised styling and additional standard performance equipment over the S models on which they are based.

The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS are equipped with a 3.4-liter flat six engine that now deliver an additional 15 hp (11 kW) – for a total of 335bhp on the Cayman GTS and 325bhp on the Boxster GTS. Torque has also increased by 7 lb.-ft. in each model: 273 lb.-ft. in the Boxster GTS and 280 lb.-ft. in the Cayman GTS.

As expected the six-speed manual gearbox is standard on each car, with a 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission optional. In addition compared to the S models, the Sport Chrono package and the Porsche Active Suspension Management system (PASM) are standard on the new GTS models.

When equipped with the PDK transmission and Sport Plus button activated, Porsche says the Boxster GTS reaches 60 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds – while the Cayman GTS in 4.3 seconds.

Revised front and rear bumpers as well as new blackened bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) (standard) are subtle yet unmistakable features of the new top GTS models.

Sales of the pair are set to get under way somewhere in May. In the U.S the GTS will start at $73,500 (Boxster GTS), while the Cayman GTS is priced from$75,200, excluding destination charges of $995. In the UK – Boxster GTS  will start at £52,879, while the Cayman GTS is priced at £55,397.

Both vehicles are set to make public debut next month at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show.
