For the first time, the Porsche Cayman will be offered as GTS model. As is typical for Porsche, this model features a more powerful engine and additional standard performance equipment.
The new Cayman GTS is visually defined by more than just a badge: it offers as standard equipment unique front and rear fascia, blacked out Bi-XenonTM headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), 20-inch Carrera S wheels and a sport exhaust system with black tailpipes as standard. The Cayman GTS is built specifically for maximum driving pleasure.
The 3.4-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine of the Cayman GTS delivers an additional 15 hp compared to their “S” model counterpart. This means that the Boxster GTS has 340 hp. Torque has been increased by 7 lb.-ft. to 280 lb.-ft.
The Sport Chrono package is now a standard feature with either the 6-speed manual or the optional 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) transmission. This means with the optional PDK transmission and Sport Plus button activated, the Cayman GTS reaches 60 mph from a standstill in 4.3 seconds. Top track speed for the Cayman GTS is 177 mph with a manual transmission.
The Cayman GTS features Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard, which offers the choice of sportier or more comfortable ride settings at the press of a button. The 235/35 front and 265/35 rear tires on 20-inch Carrera S wheels provide the perfect setup for a balanced driving experience. Like other Porsche GTS models, the interior of the Cayman GTS features an Alcantara® wrapped steering wheel, headliner, center console, and inserts on the standard Sport Seats Plus. Additional visual elements include GTS nomenclature embroidered into the headrests and printed on the tachometer face.
A specific standard of performance and uniqueness is required to wear the GTS badge. For example, the legendary 1963 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS was dominant on the racetrack and a spectacle on the street. The 1980s and 1990s saw the 924 GTS and 928 GTS refine this characteristic. In 2007 the GTS emblem was reintroduced on the Cayenne GTS and later implemented in the 911 and Panamera model lines.
The Cayman GTS is priced from $75,200, excluding destination charges of $995 and will be available for delivery this summer.
