Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS Arrive with More Power, Performance

2018 Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS Arrive with More Power, Performance

Of course, the GTS packs some extra heat not available on the regular 718 and 718 S. Power from the turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four jumps to 365 hp, a 15 hp boost over the 718 S and 35 more than the previous 981 Cayman and Boxster GTS.

With the PDK gearbox and the launch control function of the Sport Chrono Package, the 718 GTS can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.1sec. That means they deliver 365 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque (309 lb-ft with manual transmission), allowing them to go zero-to-62 miles per hour (0-100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds when equipped with the PDK and Sport Chrono Package.

The maximum torque of 317lb ft is available from 1,900 to 5,000rpm.

By comparison, the earlier Boxster GTS with PDK gearbox boasted a 0-62 miles per hour time of 4.4 seconds and 173-mph (279-km/h) top speed, while the previous Cayman GTS offered figures of 4.3 seconds and 176 miles per hour (283 km/h). Inside, the standard Sport Chrono package adds a host of improved driving modes, including Sport, Sport Plus, Launch Control (PDK only), and active driveline mounts.

Hopes fade for six missing of the Queensland coast
Hopes of finding the men alive faded on Tuesday when strong winds and torrential rain forced crews to return to shore. The sole survivor so far, crew member Ruben McDornan, spent hours in the water, clinging on to the trawler's hull.

Compared to the 718 and 718 S, the 718 GTS range gets a new Sport Design front bumper, dark-themed styling elements like black-tinted bi-xenon headlights, tinted tail-lights, black badging, black lower rear bumper accents and a set of black tailpipes for the standard sports exhaust system. The subtly upgraded derivatives had been spied testing recently, and follow a pattern established by Porsche of offering a greater number of GTS models earlier in the product life cycle. A set of 20-inch black satin wheels complete the look.

Inside, the cars get two-way power-adjustable Alcantara-trimmed sports seats with GTS logos on the headrests, along with Alcantara trim on the steering wheel, centre console and armrests.

The 718 GTS is now available to order and German pricing starts at €76,137 for the Cayman GTS and €78,160 for the Boxster GTS. It seems to have worked out the first time around, because the Porsche's just done it again, and revealed the 2018 718 Boxster and Cayman GTS. If you're interested, order books are already open, with deliveries beginning in March 2018.
