Porsche 718 Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS debut with 365-hp

Porsche 718 Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS debut with 365-hp

The new GTS shares its 2.5-litre, four-cylinder flat-four engine with the other models in the 718 series though tuned to deliver 365hp and 430Nm of peak torque between 1,900 and 5,000rpm. The GTS cars will also have a host of standard features that are optional on S models. Its price is distinctive, too: £59,866 for the Cayman; £61,727 for the Boxster - both with the six-speed manual (the PDK remains an option).

The name of the game with the GTS is standard kit that would normally cost you extra on the base auto, or the S, so if you go for a 718 GTS you get Porsche Torque Vectoring with a mechanical limited slip differential and Sport Chrono as standard, plus Porsche Active Suspension Management that drops the GTS cars 10mm closer to the ground. PDK-equipped cars will complete the zero-to-100 km/h sprint in just 4.1 seconds and top out at 290 km/h. Naturally the GT4's place in the Porsche hall of fame is already set in stone, frozen in carbonite and mounted on the far wall - but if you had to drive one every day, to places far less interesting than a race circuit, you wouldn't necessarily be wrong to prefer the better value, better cosseting and not-hugely-slower GTS. The apron at the front of the vehicles underscores the sportiness of the vehicles.

The extra hustle is accompanied by a number of visual upgrades as well - a sport front fascia is flanked by tinted indicators and rear lights.

And, as the spyshots have shown, the newcomer packs the Sport Design Package you can order on the non-GTS models, with this also coming as standard. A sport chrono package has been added, which includes an integrated stopwatch located in the centre of the dashboard should you wish to time yourself on a track.

Russian TV host Ksenia Sobchak declares Kremlin bid for 2018
Mr Navalny, 41, says he would like to run, but a criminal conviction he describes as politically motivated bars him from doing so. But Ms Sobchak also has the "Marmite" effect: she is as unpalatable to as many people as she attracts.

The seats are finished in a mix of half leather and central inserts made of Alcantara, and feature a GTS logo embossed on the headrests. The app allows performance oriented drivers to automatically record, display, and analyze driving data obtained on closed courses on a smartphone.
