The finest from Stuttgart are here to grace our land. Porsche India has just launched the much awaited GTS (Gran Turismo Sport) versions of its iconic sportscars, the Cayman and the Boxster. Priced at Rs 1.175 crore and Rs 1.15 crore  ex-Delhi respectively, the new GTS cars are aimed at enthusiasts who are looking for more power and sportiness. Porsche had introduced the GTS series of cars way back in 1963 with the launch of the Porsche 904 GTS.

Porsche Cayman GTS

The Porsche Cayman GTS will feature a 3.4-litre flat-six engine with direct fuel injection that produces 340PS, a full 15PS more than the Cayman S, says Porsche. All that power is channeled to the rear wheels via a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed PDK transmission. Wonder what advantage the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) box presents  How about a 0-100kmph time that, at 4.6 seconds, is faster than what the manual version manages.

The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche's electronic damping control system, comes as standard. The Porsche Cayman GTS sits 10mm lower than the Porsche Cayman S. In addition, the Cayman GTS also features the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) system with rear differential lock. The system bestows the Cayman GTS with greater cornering agility, by applying the brake on the inside rear wheel when charging hard into a corner, ensuring that the car stays true to the line. Meanwhile, at the exit of the corner, the rear differential lock helps increase traction and hence keeps the car planted, says Porsche.

The Porsche Sports Chrono Package is also standard on the Cayman GTS and apart from that gorgeous clock in the centre of the dashboard, it also features a Sport Plus button that stiffens the suspension and steering to enhance the purity of the drive, says Porsche. Dynamic gearbox mounts reduce vibrations of the drivetrain and the engine, thus providing a sporty yet comfortable drive.

The interior is quintessentially Porsche and is finished in a mix of leather and Alcantara inserts on the seats and dashboard. Carbon-fibre inlays are present on the dashboard and the centre console.

Porsche Boxster GTS

Boxster GTS

Porsche's Boxster series of cars have alway stood out as cars with good handling and the GTS simply ups the ante, says Porsche. The Boxter sports a 3.4-litre Boxer engine that produces 330PS and propels the car to a top speed of 279kmph. That is 15kmph faster than the Boxter S.

The Porsche Boxster also comes with a 6-speed manual transmission with the PDK box as an option. PASM, PTV and the Sport Chrono package are also present.

Two new top models from Porsche: Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS


Mumbai. Porsche is extending the GTS principle to the Boxster and Cayman for the first time ever. These mid-engine sports models from Porsche feature uprated engines and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) chassis. 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 ten newton metres in each model. Additionally, the Sport Chrono package is standard. In conjunction with the standard Porsche Doppelkupplung (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 is 279 km/h, while the Cayman GTS is even faster at 283 km/h. The new top models achieve an overall fuel consumption of 8.2 l/100 km according to the New European Driving Cycle. Anil Reddi, Director, Porsche India, says: "With the introduction of the GTS versions of the Boxster and Cayman, we are catering to Porsche purists and true sports car enthusiasts in the country. These two new Porsche sports cars excel visually and dynamically, and assure a rewarding ownership and driving experience." The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS feature PASM as standard which offers the driver a choice of sportier or more comfortable settings at the press of a button. The tyres measuring 235/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear on 20-inch Carrera S wheels provide the perfect setup. Like other Porsche GTS models, both two-seaters come with standard sports seats and leather interiors enhanced with Alcantara elements. The distinctive front and modified rear end, blackened bi-xenon headlights – with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) – and taillights as well as silky black gloss exterior lettering are subtle yet unmistakable features of these new models. The name says it all: at Porsche, "GTS" stands for Gran Turismo Sport and has promised outstanding Porsche performance ever since the legendary 904 Carrera back in 1963. With the new models, Porsche is now extending the GTS principle to the Boxster and Cayman series. 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 also implemented in the 911 series and the Panamera. he new Boxster and Cayman GTS models are available for order at Porsche dealerships across India. The basic ex-showroom prices are as follows: Boxster GTS (Delhi) INR 11,500,000 Boxster GTS (Maharashtra) INR 11,290,000 Cayman GTS (Delhi) INR 11,750,000 Cayman GTS (Maharashtra) INR 11,536,000
