Upping their performance ante on all levels, Porsche has introduced the first-ever GTS-spec Boxster and Cayman models. Boasting bolder looks, additional power and more standard features than the existing S variants, each of these mid-engine 2-seaters has all that it takes to keep any enthusiast longing for that next bit of twisty two-lane.

Visually, the new GTS models have more aggressive fascias topped by blacked-out bi-xenon headlamps fitted with the corner-following Porsche Dynamic Light System.  The sport exhaust systems feature black-finish dual center-mount outlets at the rear. Flash and function combine in 20-inch Carrera S light alloy wheels, which mount staggered-width 235/35 and 265/35 performance rubber. Inside, this Porsche duo features loads of Alcantara, more deeply bolstered Sport Seats Plus buckets and "GTS" logos on the tachometer and headrests. 

Exhilaration on demand

Power for this new GTS set comes from a hotter version of the 3.4-liter flat-6 used in their respective S-spec siblings that adds 15 horsepower and 7 lb-ft of torque. That elevates output to 330 horsepower/273 lb-ft in the Boxster GTS and 340/280 in the Cayman GTS. Buyers can opt for a standard 6-speed manual transmission or available 7-speed PDK automatic. Either way, the GTS trim also includes the Porsche Active Suspension Management system and the Porsche Sport Chrono package with its Sport button that tweaks engine, throttle, chassis and shift programming (with the PDK) to further intensify the driving experience.

How intense? Porsche says a PDK-equipped Boxster GTS in Sport mode can sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds while the Cayman GTS needs just 4.3 ticks to hit that benchmark speed. Those more intrigued by terminal velocity should stick with the manual transmission, which will permit the Boxster GTS to a see 174 mph top speed and carry the Cayman GTS to 177 mph.  

Pricing for the 2014 Porsche Boxster GTS starts at $74,495 and the 2014 Porsche Cayman GTS begins at $76,195. Both are set to go on sale here this summer.
