Porsche introduced the new 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS

GTS the acronym that brings out even more sportiness in Porsche cars. There are already versions with this “surname” of the Cayenne, Macan, Panamera (in its previous generation) and 911. Now join the smallest members of the family: the new 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster GTS.

Starting with the mechanics, the essential part of any sports car, both 718 GTS increase the power of its 4-cylinder and 2.5-liter boxer engines to 365 hp (15 hp more than the S versions). With a torque of 430 Nm between 1,900 and 5,000 rpm, thanks to an optimization of the turbo and the exhaust manifold. True to the most purist users, they have a six-speed manual gearbox, but they are also offered with the dual-clutch PDK 7-speed automatic gearbox with the Sport Chrono package, the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with mechanical rear differential and the active damping system Porsche Suspension Management (PASM). Which reduces the ground clearance by 10 mm.
