Porsche will expand the Cayman and Boxster lineups for 2015 by adding the GTS or Grand Touring Sport trim level.
Set to make their world debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show next month, the 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS are powered by the same 3.4-liter flat-six powering their S siblings. It is tuned to give the GTS models additional 15 horsepower and 7 pound-feet of torque. The Boxster GTS will kick at 330 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, while the Cayman GTS will have 340 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque.
Both GTS Porsches come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. A dual-clutch transmission, which the German automaker calls PDK or Porsche Doppelkupplung, will be offered as an option.
The Boxster GTS and the Cayman GTS also have the Porsche Active Suspension Management and the Sport Chrono Package as standard features. The former allows the driver to alter the engine’s throttle characteristics and modify damper stiffness. The latter offers dynamic engine mounts which improve the car’s agility.
The GTS models will be distinguished from the rest of the lineup by its 20-inch darkened wheels and GTS badging. They feature Alcantara and leather interior trims, bi-xenon headlights, sports seats, unique front and rear bumpers, black lettering, and sport exhaust with black tips.
The Boxster GTS and the Cayman GTS will be on sale this summer at the base prices of $74,495 and $76,195, respectively, with $995 destination charge.
