The New Porsche 718 Models Finally Get GTS Versions

Since their name change from the Boxster and Cayman to the 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, these two sports cars have lacked one thing: a GTS model. Today, Porsche fills that gap with the all-new GTS versions of these two rigs.

Of course, the GTS models starts out with a bit more juice from their 2.5-liter turbocharged engines, as Porsche cranks the wick up to 365 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque (309 pound-feet with the manual transmission). These are increases of 15 horsepower over the S version of each car and 8 pound-feet with the PDK transmission. The result is a 0-to-60 time of 3.9 seconds (a 0.1-second improvement over the S mode with the Sport Chrono package) and 180-mph top speed (a 3-mph bump).

Setting the 718 GTS models off visually are black accents. On the outside, look for a Sport Design front fascia, tinted front turn signals and taillights, black badges, a black lower rear fascia, black exhaust tips, black 20-inch wheels, and black GTS badges on the doors.

The 718 GTS models will arrive in March 2018. The 718 Cayman GTS will start from $79,800 and the 718 Boxster GTS will start from $81,900.
