THE BLISTERING PORSCHE 718 CAYMAN GTS AND 718 BOXSTER GTS MODELS TAKE MID-ENGINE DRIVING PLEASURE TO NEW HEIGHTS.
A corner beckons, kerbs on each side. The line forms in your head and you overlay it into your vision. Feeling the vibrant feedback from the steering wheel and through the seat of your pants, you carve like a scalpel through the bend exactly as you intended.
You are entertained, exhilarated and utterly in control. Addicted, you aim the car at the next challenge, hungry for more. Welcome to the new Porsche 718 GTS models.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GTS and 718 Boxster GTS are infused with even more capability and emotion than the 718 Cayman S and 718 Boxster S models, combining the sports-car defining dynamics that make these models the industry’s benchmark driving instruments with everyday usability.
Whether you’re driving on winding country roads, manoeuvring through the bustle of the daily city commute or setting faster lap times on a racetrack, the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS is all the sports car your heart needs and desires.
In fact, the Porsche 718 Cayman GTS is 13 seconds faster around the legendary Nurburgring circuit than its predecessor, the Cayman GTS. Clearly, it has the cachet to match its badge atop the 718 model tree.
Porsche’s engineers have worked their magic and immense technical ability to massage yet more power and revving ability out of the mid-mounted turbocharged boxer engine.
Now erupting with 365hp and up to 430Nm of torque in the PDK-equipped cars, the blistering motor will fire you from corner to corner like cannon shells from a battleship. A zero to 100km/h acceleration time of 4.1 seconds tells only half the story of the rapid acceleration and immediate response available with every prod of the throttle.
Power, is of course, of little consequence without control, and no other car can match the balletic authority over its faculties that the Porsche 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster have become universally renowned and admired for.
With the 718 GTS models, Porsche has given the cars even more dynamic prowess. A direct and intoxicating driving experience is provided by a chassis lowered by 10mm, and married to the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) systems.
The Sport Chrono Package included as standard endows the 718 GTS models with a chassis mode switch and a SPORT Response button (with PDK gearbox) on the GT sports steering wheel for yet more flexibility on demand.
Arresting the ballistic progress is a confidence- inspiring and equally powerful affair. An uprated brake system boasting a disc diameter of 330mm at the front and 299mm at the rear allies with the chassis and engine to deliver a well-rounded masterclass in sport motoring.
Aural, visual and tactile pleasures are also enhanced with numerous additions to the already sensual 718 form. A new front and rear apron with dark-finish front and rear lights accentuate the 20-inch Carrera S wheels in satin-finish black for a menacing and purposeful appearance. Feel the hairs stand on the back of your neck with the breathtaking soundtrack blaring from the black double- tube tailpipes of the sports exhaust system.
Inside, clues to the 718 GTS models’ ferocious intent can be found with the stopwatch of the Sport Chrono Package integrated as a central component in the dashboard. Sports seats cradle you reassuringly for the spirited drive ahead, clad in Alcantara® and tastefully accented with GTS logos to hint at the potential beneath.
The Porsche 718 Cayman GTS and 718 Boxster GTS take purity of driving pleasure to new levels, while remaining an intelligent, refined car you can use every day.
