PORSCHE Cars Australia has confirmed an August launch date for the new GTS flagship versions of its mid-engined, two-seat Boxster and Cayman twins that were revealed in Germany overnight.

The Australian branch has also announced pricing for these most powerful Boxster and Cayman models, with buyers having to layout an extra $19,500 and $21,500 respectively for the GTS over the current clubhouse leaders, the Boxster S and Cayman S.

This means the Boxster GTS will land at $146,000 in six-speed manual form (plus on-road costs), while the Cayman GTS manual will cost $161,400. The optional seven-speed dual-clutch PDK automated transmission adds $4990 in both cases.

Both models will use an enhanced version of the normally aspirated 3.4-litre six-cylinder boxer engine employed in the S, with Boxster GTS power elevated 11kW to 243kW, and Cayman GTS grunt going up a similar amount, to 250kW.

Torque also has been increased by 10Nm, to 370Nm in the Boxster and 380Nm in the Cayman.

As well, the GTS gets Porsche’s Sport Chrono high-performance package as standard. On other Boxster and Cayman variants, Sports Chrono is a $3890 option on manual models and $4790 with the PDK, with the latter featuring elements such as launch control.

The extra grunt of the new GTS variants cuts about a tenth of a second off the 0-100km/h sprint time compared with the S in PDK form, meaning 4.6 seconds for the Cayman GTS and 4.7 seconds for the Boxster GTS.

That is still not as quick as the light-weight, stripped out Cayman R of the previous generation, which could do the sprint in about 4.5 seconds when armed with the PDK box and Sport Chrono package.

However, the new Cayman GTS can claim bragging rights on top speed, hitting 285km/h, just pipping the Cayman R’s 282km/h.

Both GTS variants achieve fuel consumption of 8.2 litres per 100km in PDK guise and 9.0L/100km in manual form.

As well as Sport Chrono, the new GTS models get active suspension which provides continuous adjustment of the dampers.

Porsche says these systems allow the driver to switch between “progressive sportiness” and long-distance comfort at the press of a button.

Externally, the GTS models are distinguished by unique front and rear body treatment that includes blackened bi-xenon headlights. The Porsche dynamic light system is standard.

Carrera-style 20-inch alloy wheels get 235/35 tyres at the front and 265/35 at the back.

Inside, the sports seats combine leather and alcantara.

Porsche’s Australian dealers are taking orders now.
