These new GTS models will be visually identified by unique front and rear fascias, blacked-out headlights, 20-inch Carrera S wheels, a sport exhaust system with black tailpipes and, of course, the GTS badge.

The 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine found in the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS has an additional 15 hp when compared to their “S” model counterparts. Torque was also increased by 7 lb-ft for each model. This results in 320 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque for the Boxster GTS and 340 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque for the Cayman GTS.
A standard feature for both models is the Sport Chrono package, which comes with either the standard six-speed manual or seven-speed PDK transmission. With the optional PDK transmission and the Sport Plus mode activated, the press release states that the Boxster GTS will race from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds, and the Cayman GTS will accomplish the feat in 4.3 seconds. Top speeds, at least for both cars equipped with a manual transmission, are stated at 174 mph for the Boxster GTS and 177 mph for the Cayman GTS.
Both models will be for sale this summer. Buyers can expect pricing to be at $73,500 for the 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS, with the 2015 Porsche Cayman GTS coming in at $75,200, not including the $995 destination charge.
