The GTS badge brings 15PS more power and roughly 10Nm more torque to an uprated 3.4-litre 6-cylinder horizontally opposed engine used in the S. This brings the max power/torque figures to 340PS/380Nm on the Cayman GTS and 330PS/375Nm on the Boxster GTS. While the former achieves a claimed top speed of 285kmph, the latter tops out at 280kmph. In both cars, the engine comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard and a PDK gearbox as option. If driven with the optional PDK gearbox, the race to 100kmph from standstill takes 4.6s in the Cayman and 4.7s in the Boxster.Fuel efficiency figures are 13.3kmpl with the standard transmission and goes up to 14.6kmpl if the PDK transmission is installed.

Outside,the new Cayman GTS gets larger air intakes and the GTS-specific smoked daytime running lights and position lights built on LED technology. Bi?Xenon headlights including the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) are fitted as standard. The Porsches gets 10-spoke 20-inch Carrera S wheels as standard and 20-inch 911 Turbo Design titanium wheels as option. The LED taillights have smoked lens covers and it bodes well with the restyled posterior.A black finish is available as option to the 20-inch alloy wheels and the Bi-Xenon headlight assembly.

The interiors have a sporty feel to them and the sport seats are covered in leather and have Alcantara elements. Seats also get electric adjustment. The audio system gets mp3 connectivity and can be accessed via a seven-inch touch screen on the center console.

The handling dynamics of the GTS are further boosted by Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Sport Chrono pack which come as standard. The active suspension system allows the driver to modify the damper stiffness while the Chrono package enables the chassis to respond better under braking, acceleration or cornering by using dynamic engine mounts which stiffen under such conditions thus reducing the effects of mass transfer.

NEW PORSCHE BOXSTER GTS SPRINTS INTO SUMMER


The benchmark roadster gains a more powerful 330 hp engine and uprated chassis Chassis tuned with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) fitted as standard More purposeful styling further emphasises mid-engine design On sale now priced from £52,879 – arriving in Porsche Centres in UK and Ireland from May 2014 Since the Porsche Boxster first appeared in showrooms nearly 20 years ago, the mid-engined two-seater has established itself as the benchmark roadster. The new Boxster GTS, which is announced today, enhances the driving experience further with an uprated engine and specific chassis tuning, and in the process sets a new standard for open-top driving enthusiasts. Building on the proven Boxster virtues of light weight, responsive handling and a charismatic flat-six engine, the GTS features an optimised version of the proven 3.4-litre engine which has been tuned to produce an additional 15 hp (11 kW). The Boxster GTS thus develops 330 hp (243 kW), and pulling power has also increased by ten newton metres to 370 Nm. Further emphasising the distinctive character of the GTS is the Sport Chrono package and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), fitted as standard. These offer the driver the opportunity to not only modify the damper stiffness, but also subtly change the throttle characteristics of the engine. In conjunction with the optional Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) seven-speed double-clutch transmission, the Launch Control function – engaged via the Sport Plus button - enables the Boxster GTS to accelerate from 0 - 62 mph in 4.7 seconds, 0.3 secs quicker than the standard Boxster S PDK. With the standard manual six-speed transmission, the GTS is the first Boxster to offer the potential to top the 174 mph (280 km/h) threshold. The new GTS is also the company's first mid-engined roadster to be certified according to the Euro 6 emissions standard, and achieves an overall fuel consumption with PDK of 34.4 mpg (31.4 mpg with manual transmission). The dynamic engine mounts also offered as part of the Sport Chrono package enable the Boxster GTS to offer an impressive breadth of responsiveness. Under acceleration, cornering or braking, the mountings for the engine stiffen automatically to reduce the effects of mass transfer during dynamic manoeuvres, further increasing agility. The Boxster GTS can also be specified with a new, optional sports chassis configuration that lowers the ride height by 20 mm, underlying the fact that at the heart of every Porsche is a race car suitable for both the circuit and everyday use. From the outside, the new Boxster GTS features subtle yet unmistakable visual clues to its identity. Purposeful black finish 20-inch diameter Carrera S alloy wheels, with 235/35 tyres at the front and 265/35 tyres at the rear, give a strong hint to the car's intent. A distinctively-styled front spoiler and black finish Bi-Xenon headlights – with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) as standard – present a new face, and from the rear exterior lettering in silky black gloss and a re-styled lower apron complete the picture. Inside, there are sports seats and leather trim as standard. Like other GTS models, the interior ambience is refined with Alcantara elements. The GTS lineage Since the legendary 904 Carrera GTS of the 1960s, the letters 'GTS' have stood for 'Gran Turismo Sport' and a promise of outstanding levels of Porsche performance. With the new model, Porsche is extending the GTS principle to the Boxster. Like the Cayenne GTS and Panamera GTS already, this is a car that stands for superior driving dynamics in its segment. The combination of letters originates from the 904 Carrera GTS, a race car dating back to 1963 that could also be registered for use on public roads. In the 1980s and 1990s, the 924 GTS and 928 GTS cultivated this principle. It was reborn in 2007 in the form of the Cayenne GTS, and was subsequently applied to the 'Type 997' 911 and the Panamera. Boxster GTS in the UK The new Boxster GTS is available to order now priced from £52,879, and will be arriving in Porsche Centres in the UK and Ireland from May 2014. Standard equipment on the Boxster GTS includes Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Sport Chrono package with dynamic transmission mounts, black finish 20-inch diameter Carrera S alloy wheels, black finish Bi-Xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Lighting System, leather/Alcantara interior, Sports seats Plus with powered adjustment, air conditioning, CD audio system with seven-inch touch-screen, universal audio interface offering MP3 connectivity, automatic headlight activation, auto stop-start function, 'Sport' button, front electric windows, powered fabric roof with heated glass rear window, floor mats, top-tinted windscreen and a three-year warranty. Customers will also be able to explore the potential of their new car, and further develop their own skills behind the wheel, by participating in a complimentary course at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.
