the first time, the Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman will be offered as GTS
models in the United States. According
to a Porsche press statement, the GTS models feature more powerful engines and
additional standard performance equipment. These new GTS models are visually
defined by more than just a badge: they offer as standard equipment unique
front and rear fascias, blacked out Bi-Xenon headlights with the Porsche
Dynamic Light System (PDLS), 20-inch Carrera S wheels and a sport exhaust
system with black tailpipes as standard. The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS are
built specifically for maximum driving pleasure.
Boxster GTS is priced from $73,500 (Rs 45.77 lakh approx.) and the Cayman GTS
is priced from $75,200 (Rs 45.89 lakh approx.), excluding destination charges
of $995 (Rs 60,000 approx.). The 3.4-litre
6-cylinder boxer engine of the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS models delivers an
additional 15 hp compared to their "S" model counterparts. The Boxster
GTS has 330 hp and the Cayman GTS has 340 hp. Torque has been increased by around
9.49Nm in each model. The Boxster GTS has 370Nm while the Cayman GTS produces
as much as 380NM of torque. The Sport Chrono package is now a standard feature
with either the 6-speed manual or the optional 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe
(PDK) transmission. This means with the optional PDK transmission and Sport
Plus button activated, the Boxster GTS reaches 100 speed from a standstill in almost
4.4 seconds and 4.3 seconds in the Cayman GTS. Top track speed for the Boxster
GTS is 280 kmph with a manual transmission and around 280kmph for a Cayman GTS
equipped with a manual transmission.
