Doha: Porsche is extending the GTS principle to the Boxster and Cayman for the first time ever. Featuring top engines and PASM chassis, the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS stand as the most powerful and fastest of these mid-engine sports models from Porsche.
The six-cylinder boxer engines fitted are based on the 3.4-litre units from the Boxster S and Cayman S. Thanks to fine-tuning they deliver an additional 15 hp: the Boxster GTS now has an output of 330 hp, while the Cayman GTS delivers 340 hp. Torque increases by 10 newton metres in each model. Additionally, the Sport Chrono package is standard. In conjunction with the optional Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) gearbox and Sport Plus mode, this translates into sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds for the Boxster GTS, with the Cayman GTS a tenth of a second faster. The Boxster GTS’s top speed with the manual six-speed transmission is 281 km/h. At 285 km/h the Cayman GTS is even faster. The Peninsula
