Porsche 718 GTS models (2018) Cayman & Boxster. Porsche is expanding its mid-engine range with the new two-seater 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS. The vehicles’ power has now been increased to 365 horsepower (269 kW) thanks to a newly developed intake duct and an optimised turbocharger for the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder boxer engine. With these improvements, the engine delivers 15 hp (11 kW) more power than the 718 S model and up to 35 hp (26 kW) more power than its GTS predecessor models with naturally aspirated engines. The new mid-engine sports cars are available with manual six-speed transmission or optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). The GTS vehicles are equipped with a host of options as standard, such as the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear differential lock and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the body by ten millimetres.
The maximum torque of 430 Nm provides even better acceleration and flexibility values. This is available between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm. When combined with the PDK and Sport Chrono Package, the GTS models accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds. The vehicles’ top speed is 290 km/h (180 mph).
The 718 GTS models are available to order now and arrive in dealerships in mid-December 2017. The prices for the vehicles including VAT and country-specific features in Germany are as follows:
718 Boxster GTS from EUR 78,160
718 Cayman GTS from EUR 76,137
