2014 porsche cayman gts red

Raising the performance of its entry-level models once again, Porsche has announced the new GTS trim level for both the Boxster roadster and Cayman Coupe.

Adding unique styling and a host of upgrades, both cars come with increased power as well with the Boxster GTS now delivering 330 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, while the Cayman GTS improves to 340 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque – increases of 15 hp and 7 lb-ft each. Available with either a conventional 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch PDK, the Sport Chrono package comes standard, allowing the Boxster to hit 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, while the Cayman is a hair quicker at 4.3.

Added performance updates include the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system and large 20-inch wheels with 235/35 front and 265/35 rear tires.

Inside GTS models receive an Alcantara wrapped headliner, center console and steering wheel as well as Alcantara inserts on the sport seats, with GTS badging embroidered on the headrests and stamped on the tachometer.

Both models are easily recognizable from the outside not just by their badging but also by unique front and rear bumpers, a blacked-out sport exhaust system and blacked out Bi-Xenon headlights.

Available at dealers this summer the Boxster GTS starts at $74,495 with the Cayman GTS at $76,195 including a $995 destination charge.
