Porsche is expanding its mid-engine range with the new two-seater 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS. Carlsen Porsche will soon be offering these models to Cupertino, San Mateo, Sunnyvale, and Los Gatos residents. The vehicles’ power has now been increased to 365 hp thanks to a newly developed intake duct and an optimized turbocharger for the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine. With these improvements, the engine delivers 15 hp more power than the 718 S model and up to 35 hp more power than GTS predecessors for Bay Area motorists.
The new mid-engine sports cars are available at Carlsen Porsche with manual six-speed transmission or optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). Motorists will appreciate that GTS vehicles are equipped with a host of options as standard, such as the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear differential lock and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the body by ten millimeters.
More power for more performance
The GTS’ maximum torque of 430 Nm provides even better acceleration and flexibility values. When combined with the PDK and Sport Chrono Package, the GTS models accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. The vehicles’ top speed is 180 mph.
Classic GTS: vivid black elements both inside and out
The GTS models are unrivaled not only in terms of technology, but also in their visual design. The new Sport Design apron at the front of the vehicle embodies the vehicles’ sporty character. Porsche enthusiasts know that the GTS front light modules and the Bi-Xenon headlights are black-tinted. At the rear of the vehicle, the tinted taillights, black logos, black rear apron and centrally positioned black tailpipes of the standard sports exhaust system give the GTS its stunning appearance. Black GTS logos at the base of the doors and 20-inch wheels painted in black satin finish create an unparalleled profile.
Both the driver and passenger can enjoy sports seats featuring Alcantara centers. The sports seats Plus with GTS logos on the headrests can be electronically adjusted in two ways and provide increased lateral support and comfort. In addition, the interior features a high proportion of Alcantara, which can be found on the steering wheel trim, center console and armrests, for example.
Porsche Track Precision App
GTS genes also shape the interior. The stopwatch of the standard Sport Chrono Package allows drivers to time and improve their performance. Furthermore, drivers with a particular passion for sport are assisted by the Porsche Track Precision App (PTPA), which enables the driver to automatically record, display and analyze driving data on their smartphone. The GTS combines the latest technology with the heritage and love of sport that have made Porsche a legendary name.
