Introducing the 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS, a mid-engine sports car the German automaker’s developed for maximum driving pleasure and a pure driving experience. It’s the first time the Cayman has been offered in a GTS trim, which delivers more powerful engines and additional standard performance equipment. The difference between the GTS and its stable mates is apparent in the aesthetics as it sports unique front and rear fascias, blacked out Bi-XenonTM headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), 20-inch Carrera S wheels and a sport exhaust system with black tailpipes as standard. Power comes from a 3.4-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine that delivers an additional 15 hp compared to its “S” model counterpart, giving the Cayman GTS 340 hp. Torque has also been increased by 7 lb.-ft. to 280 lb.-ft. while the Sport Chrono package is now a standard feature with either the 6-speed manual or the optional 7-speed PDK transmission. With the optional PDK transmission and Sport Plus button activated, we’re looking at a 0 to 60 time of 4.3 seconds and a top track speed of 177 mph for a Cayman GTS equipped with a manual transmission.
Other features unique to the GTS model is Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) now being standard, which offers the choice of sportier or more comfortable ride settings at the press of a button. Jump inside the Cayman GTS and you’ll see an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, headliner, center console, and inserts on the standard Sport Seats Plus. Additional visual elements include GTS nomenclature embroidered into the headrests and printed on the tachometer face.
The 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS is priced from $75,200, excluding destination charges of $995, and will be available for delivery this summer.
