Porsche 718 GTS Unveiled With Turbo Four Developing 365 Horses

Porsche has taken the wraps off the new 718 GTS.

Designed to appeal to driving enthusiasts, the model features a new front bumper and tinted lighting units. The sporty styling continues at the rear as designers installed a black rear apron and a center-mounted sports exhaust system. Other highlights include black GTS badging and 20-inch wheels with a satin black finish.

The interior largely carries over and comes equipped with Alcantara sport seats featuring GTS logos embroidered into the headrests. Drivers will also find an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a standard Sport Chrono Package.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 365 PS (269 kW) and up to 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. The engine can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an optional PDK transmission. When equipped with the latter gearbox, the cars can accelerate 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.1 seconds before hitting a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph).

The 718 GTS is currently available to order and German pricing starts at €76,137 for the Cayman GTS and €78,160 for the Boxster GTS. U.S. deliveries are slated to begin in March and pricing starts at $79,800 for the Cayman GTS and $81,900 for the Boxster GTS.

    i never thought i would see the day that a Cayman could cost as high as $80 grand. that is insane

      Pretty close to a stripper 911 with ~the same power/tq & some interior upgrades. If they have found a way to make it sound significantly better over the current s variants id def consider the gts over a base 911 if I were looking in this price range.

        I would look at a 3-4 year old 911first.

          Me too. But some people just have to buy new so we can gets ours later after they’ve taken the depreciation hit. So Shhhhhhhhhhh!

          Plus as Matt said, if they haven’t fixed the sound then we still won’t be wanting it in a few years.

            The sound will never be “fixed” until they bring back the six.

    Perhaps it’s just me, but I find it hard to get too excited about huge hp 4 bangers. High pressure and heat along with lousy real world mpg have me thinking no thanks.

    • Vassilis

      Well, admittedly, the A45’s engine is quite impressive. 190 hp per litre is no small feat at all.

    Beautiful Cars and probably Porsches true Sports Car as the 911’s have moved to be expensive grand touring cars. It is a shame to see the 6 cylinders go, I fail to see any real advantage other than to further separate it from the 911, they at least could have offered one in the GTS. I would really like to see a Modern front engine 924/944 replacement slotting just below these twins.

    I’m glad Porsche offers a manual at least

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    better buy 718 with sportdesign exterior

  • Vassilis

    Nice. Good thing with the turbocharged engine is that future models will probably have silly amounts of power at some point.

    911 is not a GT (a great one BTW!)
    718 is the new 911
    718 GT4 will have the wet dreams boxer 6!

    Too bad it’s still the flat 4….
