Porsche has officially announced the release of the new 718 GTS models.
As we reported earlier this month, the new Cayman GTS will be powered by the same 4 cylinder turbo charged engine in the S model with a slight increase in both power and torque (360bhp and 317lbft respectively). The increased power compared with the existing 718 S has been achieved via a revised intake system and turbocharger tweaks
The 718 Cayman GTS costs from £59,866 and the new car is available to order now, with the first deliveries in December.
The car will come standard with a manual gearbox. Other standard equipment includes a Sport Chrono Package, torque vectoring with a mechanical limited-slip differential and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which reduces the ride height by 10mm.
The maximum torque of 317lb ft is available from 1,900 to 5,000rpm. 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.
The Cayman GTS will have a maximum speed of 180mph. The EU Combined economy is 34.4mpg, with 186g/km of CO2 emissions.
The GTS notable differentiating external features are a revised front end, with black-tinted lenses over the Bi-Xenon LED headlights. At the rear, the black theme is continued on the lights and badging, with black exhaust tailpipes. The customary black GTS logos feature either side.
In keeping with the usual GTS appointments there are Alcantara sections on the seats, which are electrically adjustable, along with Alcantara on the steering wheel rim, centre console and armrests.
Accompanying the Cayman GTS will be a Boxster GTS and both cars are available to order in PDK dual clutch transmission.
