31st March, 2014

The two most powerful and fastest mid-engine sports models from Porsche are ready and raring to go: with uprated engines and adaptive PASM chassis the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS will arrive in Australia during August 2014.

Uniquely enhanced front and rear body work, blackened bi-xenon headlights – with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) as standard – and exterior lettering in silky black gloss are subtle yet unmistakable features of the new models.

The name says it all: at Porsche “GTS” stands for Gran Turismo Sport and has promised Porsche performance ever since the 904 Carrera GTS dating back to 1963. With the new two-seaters, Porsche is renewing its commitment to genuine sports cars for both the race track and everyday use.

The six-cylinder boxer engines fitted in the new top GTS models are based on the 3.4-litre engines from the Boxster S and Cayman S respectively. Thanks to optimised fine tuning they now deliver an additional 11 kW. This means the Boxster GTS now has an output of 243 kW, whilst the Cayman GTS delivers 250 kW.

The torque has also increased by ten Newton-metres in each model (370 Nm Boxster GTS; 380 Nm Cayman GTS). What’s more, the Sport Chrono package is a standard feature on both mid-engine sports cars.

This means that in conjunction with the optional Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) and the active Sport Plus button, the Boxster GTS sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, whilst the Cayman GTS is a tenth of a second faster. Both vehicles set new acceleration values within their model line-up.

In regards to maximum speed – measured with the standard manual six-speed transmission – the Boxster has a top speed of 281 km/h. At 285 km/h the sports coupé is a little faster. (copyright image)

The new top models are the first mid-engine two-seaters from Porsche to be certified according to the Euro 6 standard, and with this measuring method they achieve a fuel consumption rating with PDK of 8.2 L/100 km (9.0 L/100 km with manual transmission).

The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS combine driving dynamics with undiminished ride comfort and exclusive features. For example, the combination of PASM and the Sport Chrono package as standard enables the driver to switch between progressive sportiness on the one hand and long-distance comfort on the other at the press of a button.

The tyres measuring 235/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear on 20-inch Carrera S-wheels provide the set-up for both. Both two-seaters come with sports seats and leather interiors as standard. Like other GTS models from Porsche they have Alcantara elements.

With the new models Porsche is now extending the GTS principle to the Boxster and Cayman.

The combination of letters originates from the 904 Carrera GTS, a race car dating back to 1963 that could also be registered for use on public roads. In the 1980s and 1990s the 924 GTS and 928 GTS cultivated this principle. It was revived in 2007 in the form of the Cayenne GTS, and was subsequently implemented in the 911 series and the Panamera.
