Porsche Returns To Its Sporting Roots With The 718 GTS 4.0 Boxter & Cayman

While the last decade has increasingly seen Porsche delve into more family-focused, less-track-oriented models with the Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan, the Zuffenhausen firm hasn’t lost its propensity for producing raw, performance-driven machines, as evidenced by the release of the new 718 GTS 4.0 models.

Consisting of a 718 GTS 4.0 Boxter and Cayman, these new cars are powered by a mid-mounted, naturally-aspirated 4L, flat-six engine that’s married to a six-speed transmission with a dual-mass flywheel, a mechanical limited-slip differential, and Porsche Torque Vectoring. The six cylinder’s 394hp and 310ft-lbs of torque translate to 0-60mph times of 4.5 seconds and a top speed exceeding 180mph. The potent powertrain is backed by Porsche Active Suspension Management and braking hardware comprised of six-piston aluminum monobloc calipers up front and four-pot items with composite discs out back. Fitted with the marque’s Sport Chrono package as standard, the GTS 4.0s ride on 20” rims and offer a ride height 20mm lower than the standard-spec 718. The well-appointed interior boasts a high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen display, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever, leather and Alcantara seats with embroidered “GTS” logos, and an optional 821-watt, 12-speaker Burmester audio system. Offered in 17 colors, the 718 GTS 4.0 Boxter and Cayman are slated to roll into dealerships later this Summer.
