Porsche has unveiled the GTS versions of its new Boxster and Cayman twins this week, offering a first look at the hotly anticipated flagships.
Entering above the S models, the new Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS get more power, enhanced features and new looks.
The new models are driven by the same 3.4 litre six-cylinder boxer that features in the S pair, but power is boosted to 243kW in the Boxster GTS and 250kW in the Cayman GTS. Torque is also up 10Nm in both models.
A six-speed manual is standard, and a PDK double-clutch auto is offered as an option.
Both GTS models get Porsche’s Sport Chrono package and, when combined with the PDK auto and the active Sport Plus setting, the 0-100km/h sprint is undone in 4.7 seconds (4.6 for the Cayman).
Top speed is listed at 285km/h for the Cayman GTS and 281km/h for the Boxster GTS, making the latter the first Boxster variant to top 280km/h.
Porsche lists fuel consumption figures of 8.2 l/100km fro the PDK models and 9.0 l/100km with the manual.
On the styling and aero front, there’s new bumpers at both ends, along with bi-xenon headlights in blacked-out assemblies and 20-inch alloy wheels.
The wheels are wrapped in 235/35 rubber at the front and a meaty 265/35 at the rear.
In the cabin, there’s GTS sports seats and leather trim, and Alcantara highlights throughout.
The Boxster GTS is available for order in Australia now at $146,000 and the Cayman GTS is available at $161,400.
Deliveries begin in August.
