The current Porsche Boxster S and Cayman S are the benchmarks in their class for most drivers, and the GTS badge adds more power and toys to the package to keep it that way.
As we previously reported, the 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS get fifteen extra horsepower and 7.3 pound-feet more torque from the 3.4-liter flat six, bringing the total to 330 hp in the Boxster and 340 hp in the Cayman. The roadster can now hit 174 mph while the coupe goes even further at 177 mph. Acceleration to sixty is 4.7 seconds in the Boxter GTS and 4.6 in the Cayman, if you go for the optional PDK gearbox.
The Sport Chrono package is a standard in both, which means you can change the driving dynamics in no time by pressing the active Sport Plus button.
The underdogs get 235/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear on 20-inch Carrera S wheels. To distinguish them from the S trim, they also have blackened bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System as standard, exterior lettering and leather/Alcantara seats.
In Germany, the the Boxster GTS costs €69,949 ($97,289) while the Cayman GTS makes you €73,757 ($102,586) lighter. Don't worry though, cars are much cheaper in America. In fact, while Porsche doesn't have the info on their website, they do have it in the configurator. The Boxster GTS starts at $74,495 and the Cayman GTS is $76,195. Not too bad.
