2018 Porsche 718 Boxster / Cayman GTS: The Usual Formula, Now for Fours

2018 Porsche 718 Boxster

GeTS the performance options you want, plus more power.


The Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman's abstinence from six sustains. Six cylinders, that is. The mid-engined roadster and coupe transactions their precedes' naturally aspirated flat-sixes for turbocharged flat-fours last year, and Porsche purists haven't stopped yowling since. They'll need to booze a glass of water and lube up their hoses for more: The 2018 718 Boxster and Cayman are now available in GTS form, and those simulates, very, use the 2.5 -liter turbo flat-four may be in the 718 S models.

That symbolizes rumors that Porsche will bring a naturally aspirated flat-six back to the Boxster and Cayman simulates are running out of possibilities to become reality. We can still to be expected that a rejuvenated Cayman GT4 or Boxster Spyder might be gifted such an engine.

For now, though, the latest GTS-badged Boxster and Cayman are here, and they boast the familiar and appealing alchemy of extra power and standard achievement features that are optional on lesser variances.

This year's Boxster and Cayman GTS receive the same 15 -hp hump over their S-badged siblings as did the old-time flat-six simulates. That vaults the GTS's 2.5 -liter flat-four to 365 horsepower, which is a significant 35 ponies stronger than the previous-generation GTS's flat-six. Porsche credits a new intake and turbocharger revisions for constricting out the extra power. Torque is up 8 lb-ft to 317, but merely on GTS simulates furnished with the optional seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. Six-speed manual customers get the same 309 lb-ft as the S-spec engine.

There is no need to made much broth in Porsche's claims that the new 718 GTS simulates will accelerate from a remainder to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds with the optional PDK transmission. They'll surely be quicker in our testing, as are most Porsches relative to their factory performance calculates. To witticism, a 2017 718 Boxster S with the quick-shifting PDK reached 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds by our evaluate; expect the stick-shift GTS's time to land just above four seconds, given the manual 718 S's 4. 3-second control in our hands.

Porsche fits its 718 GTS simulates with the torque-vectoring boast, the Sport Chrono pack that contributes a Sport Plus driving mode and a dashtop stopwatch, and an adaptive play suspension as criterion. These three items contribute a combined $5490 to the price of a 718 Boxster S or Cayman S. There's also high standards play weary ($ 2540 on the 718 S ), Sport Seats Plus ($ 810, here wrap in faux suede you can't get on an S ), and 20 -inch black pedals that, repeated through the 718 S configurator, contribute a whopping $3020. And then there are the GTS's signature black-colored accent items inside and out. Porsche hue the lenses for the taillights and front turn signal and colours the exhaust gases outlets, lower rear fascia, and badges black.

All in, Porsche charges $82,950 for the 718 Boxster GTS and $80,850 for the Cayman GTS. Those rates are exactly $12,100 higher than the 718 Boxster and Cayman S, a premium that nearly plows the included additional relative to the S. That is, spec a 718 S to coincide, and you're about $12,000 into Porsche's extensive option selection--only you'll be short 15 horsepower and GTS script on the doors and trunklid. We know which selection we'd make.
