Porsche Boxster and Cayman get a GTS-shaped kick

Porsche Boxster and Cayman get a GTS-shaped kick

Listen up track rats and canyon carvers-the excellent Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster are now available in a new flavor of fast.

You can order both the 718 Boxster and Cayman GTS models now, with deliveries arriving in mid-December 2017.

It seems to have worked out the first time around, because the Porsche's just done it again, and revealed the 2018 718 Boxster and Cayman GTS.

The maximum torque of 317lb ft is available from 1,900 to 5,000rpm.

The GTS models get previously optional equipment as standard, including the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring with mechanical rear differential lock, and Porsche Active Suspension Management which drops the ride height by 10mm.

Across the usual 0-100km/h sprint, the GTS models cover it in just 4.1 seconds with the Sport Chromo pack and the PDK automatic transmission.

When can I get a 718 GTS?

The GTS is marked out by a revised front end, with black-tinted lenses over the Bi-Xenon LED headlights. There's also tinted taillights, black rear bumper trimmings, and a black badge. The GTS models finish off the "black" look with 20-inch black wheels. Both the driver and front passenger enjoy sports seats, which feature Alcantara centres as with other Porsche GTS models.

As any GTS auto should (we're looking at you, 911 GTS), the sports seats and interior are trimmed with a healthy dose of alcantara, and Porsche's "Track Precision App" can record your track day laps and driving data straight to your phone. Alcantara has also been added to the steering wheel, center console and armrests.

As standard, the GTS is compatible with the Porsche Track Precision App which is able to record, display and analyse driving data via a smartphone.

The local specification and pricing for the 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS models is now being finalised and will be announced shortly, with the first vehicles set to arrive in New Zealand dealerships around March 2018.
