Porsche introduces new 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS 4.0 models sans turbos
They make this look good. Porsche has introduced new versions of its Cayman and Boxster sports coupes. The German automaker has given the models the full GTS treatment, making them the sportiest version of the models Porsche currently offers.
The 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman are both powered by a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. It can get from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 295 km/h when equipped with a sports exhaust system with twin tailpipes.

Porsche has given the cars a standard 20 millimeter lower ride height to improve aerodynamics and an available Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system. Combined with torque vectoring technology, standard Porsche Stability Management, and a limited slip differential, the model balances on-track performance and daily driver duties, according to Porsche. The available PASM lowers the body by just 10 millimeters.
The cars come standard with the Sport Chrono package and the Porsche Track Precision App. Both models ride on 20-inch light-alloy wheels with a satin-gloss black finish wrapped in high-performance offset tires (235/35 ZR 20 at the front and 265/35 ZR 20 at the rear). There are cross-drilled discs and red calipers. Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes are available.
Its interior features dark Alcantara, which is typical of GTS models and its exterior has a good amount of black accents. The optional GTS interior package adds another colour: the buyer's choice of Carmine Red or Chalk. The chosen color is featured on the rev counter, seat belts, all decorative seams including the embroidered GTS emblem in the headrests and the Porsche lettering on the floor mats with black borders. The trim elements as well as the centre console trim are made of carbon.

Cayman and Boxster 718 GTS 4.0 models standard with Porsche Communication Management (PCM) displayed on a high-resolution 7-inch touch screen. A Bose surround system and a Burmeister High-End Surround Sound System are available.
Porsche's smartphone app shows performance-related data on the PCM display while in race track use and records it for later analysis. The online navigation module with real-time traffic information, voice control and Porsche Connect are available.
The cars will arrive at dealerships in mid 2020. It is expected that they will start in the mid-$80,000 range.
