There is more power to Porsche
sport models, the Boxter and Cayman , now that Porsche is extending the GTS
principle to them for the first time ever. GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport. These
mid-engine sports models from Porsche feature uprated engines and Porsche
Active Suspension Management (PASM) chassis.
The Boxster GTS now costs Rs
1.15 crore while the Cayman GTS costs Rs 1,15,36,000. The prices are ex showroom Delhi. The six-cylinder boxer
engines fitted are based on the 3.4-litre units from the Boxster S and Cayman
S. As a result of some fine-tuning they deliver an additional 15 hp: the
Boxster GTS now has an output of 330 hp, while the Cayman GTS delivers 340 hp.
Torque too increases by around 10 Nm in each model. Additionally, the Sport
Chrono package is standard. In conjunction with the standard Porsche
Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox and Sport Plus mode, this means one can do the 0-100
kmph sprint in 4.7 seconds for the Boxster GTS. As for the Cayman GTS, it is a tenth of a second faster.
The Boxster GTS top speed is
279 kmph, while the Cayman GTS is even faster at 283 km/h. The new top models
achieve an overall fuel consumption of 8.2 litre 100 km, or 12.9 km to a litre
of fuel, according to the New European Driving Cycle.
The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS
feature PASM as standard which offers the driver a choice of sportier or more
comfortable settings at the press of a button. The tyres measure 235/35 at the
front and 265/35 at the rear on 20-inch Carrera S wheels. Like other Porsche
GTS models, both two-seaters come with standard sports seats and leather
interiors enhanced with Alcantara elements.
The distinctive front and
modified rear end, blackened bi-xenon headlights – with Porsche Dynamic Light
System (PDLS) – and taillights as well as silky black gloss exterior lettering
are subtle yet unmistakable features of these new models.
With the new models, Porsche
is now extending the GTS principle to the Boxster and Cayman series. In the
1980s and 1990s the 924 GTS and 928 GTS cultivated this principle. It was
reborn in 2007 in the form of the Cayenne GTS, and was subsequently also
implemented in the 911 series and the Panamera.
The new Boxster and Cayman GTS
models are available for order at Porsche dealerships across India.
Anil Reddi, Director, Porsche
India, says: “With the introduction of the GTS versions of the Boxster and
Cayman, we are catering to Porsche purists and true sports car enthusiasts in
the country. These two new Porsche sports cars excel visually and dynamically,
and assure a rewarding ownership and driving experience.”
