After months of seeing spy photos, the Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman GTS models have been officially announced.
Compared to the 718 S models, the GTS sports 15 more horsepower thanks to a newly developed intake duct and an optimized turbocharged for the 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine. That means they deliver 365 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque (309 lb-ft with manual transmission), allowing them to go zero-to-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds when equipped with the PDK and Sport Chrono Package.
Both the 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS are available with a manual six-speed transmission or an optional PDK and come with a host of options as standard including the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring with a mechanical rear differential lock, and Porsche Active Suspension Management.

Aesthetically, the GTS models are a bit different as well, with a new Sport Design apron at the front. The front headlights and modules receive a black tint, along with the tail lights, logos, rear apron, and exhaust tips. Black GTS logos can also be found at the base of the doors and the 20-inch wheels come with a satin black finish.
Inside, the stopwatch of the Sport Chrono Package is integrated as a central component of the dash, while both driver and passenger get to enjoy the comforts of sport seats that feature Alcantara centers. Alcantara can also be found elsewhere in the cabin, including the steering wheel trim, center console, and armrests.
The Porsche 718 Boxster GTS starts from $82,950 including destination, while the 718 Cayman GTS is priced at $80,850. Deliveries are expected to begin next March.
