Joy of six returns to mainstream Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman with ripper GTS 4.0
5 Nov 2020
HERE’S one for the enthusiasts. A mid-mounted 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat six engine with 7800rpm redline pushing a rasping 294kW and 418Nm through six manual gears and a limited-slip differential on its way to the rear wheels.
Sounds like a recipe for success and one that was, until now, only available as part of the hardcore track-focused package of Porsche’s 718 Spyder and Cayman GT4 twins.
Priced from $172,000 plus on-roads for in Cayman coupe format and $2800 more for the Boxster drop-top, the 718 GTS 4.0 now represent the most accessible pathways into a brand-new screaming atmo flat-six Porsche.
They’re more real-world usable than the Spyder and GT4, too, which is great news if you want to daily what we reckon are among the sweetest driving sportscars on the planet right now. At any price.
