Porsche has just revealed the brand new 2014 Porsche Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS ahead of dealership deliveries around the world in May. As the range-topping variants, both the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS promise to be absolutely exceptional mid-engined sports cars.
Beneath the body, both models feature the 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine currently used in both the Boxster S and Cayman S. However, they have now been tuned to deliver an impressive 15 hp extra resulting in the Boxster GTS delivering 330 hp while the Cayman GTS produces a touch more at 340 hp. Torque has also risen by 10 Nm for each. With the Sport Chrono package standard for both models and when combined with the optional PDK transmission, the 2014 Porsche Boxster GTS hits 100 km/h from zero in just 4.7 seconds while the Cayman GTS is a tenth of a second faster to the same mark.
Importantly, both models are available standard with six-speed manual transmissions. When equipped with this gearbox, the Boxster GTS hits a top speed of 281 km/h while the Cayman GTS hits 285 km/h. Despite the extra performance and power, when optioned with the PDK gearbox, both return impressive overall fuel consumption of just 8.2-liters per 100 km.
Both the new Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS comes standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and a selection of a different driving modes are available which adjust the comfort level of both cars. Both ride on 20-inch wheels from the 911 Carrera S wrapping in tyres measuring 235/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear.
Visually, both the 2014 Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS feature a much more aggressive front bumper with prominent darkened air intakes surrounds and lower front splitter with GTS decals being found on the sides. At the rear, both come with bootlid spoilers, dual centrally exiting exhaust pipes and more aggressive rear diffusers alongside tinted taillights.
