Sportier GTS models join Porsche 718 ranges
Both the Boxster and Cayman line-ups now have a sportier GTS model at the top of the range, offering buyers a unique look, as well as more power and performance than the standard versions
Following the same principles the company has applied to other GTS models, Porsche has increased the power of the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder engine to 365PS, 15PS more than the 718 S model. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, with a ‘PDK’ double-clutch, semi-automatic transmission available as an option.
Also in keeping with standard GTS practice – focusing on giving these models a sharper, sportier drive than the regular models – the standard equipment includes the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical limited-slip differential and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the body by 10mm.
The GTS models also stand out from lesser models thanks to the way they look. They include a new ‘Sport Design’ front apron, while the front light housings are black-tinted. At the rear, the tinted tail lights, black logos, black apron and centrally positioned black tailpipes of the sports exhaust system also give the GTS a unique appearance that’s completed by black GTS logos at the base of the doors and 20-inch alloy wheels painted in black.
The 718 GTS models are available to order now, with prices starting at £59,866 for the 718 Cayman GTS, and £61,727 for the 718 Boxster GTS. First deliveries are expected in mid-December.
