Watch The 718 Cayman GTS Hit 294Km/h – 183Mph On The Autobahn

We’ve already established that the Porsche 718 Cayman S is one of the coolest cars in the segment. Thanks to its increased power and chassis mods, the GTS is the one to go for if you can afford it.

The GTS has 365 PS (360 HP / 269 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque from a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four, when working together with the optional PDK. Opt for the six-speed manual gearbox, and see the torque number drop by 10 Nm (7 lb-ft).

Also, the Sports Chrono Package is standard on the 718 GTS, and in its most potent form, the sports car has a claimed 0-100 km/h (0-6 2mph) of just 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph). A limited slip differential, 10 mm (0.4 inch) lowered chassis compared to the ‘S’, Porsche Active Suspension Management, 33 0mm (13 in) front and 299 mm (1 2in) rear brakes, and a sports exhaust, among others, making it even more fun to drive.

Those wanting an even purer driving experience might want to wait for the new 718 Cayman GT4. The car is already in development, and it’s expected to use the same naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that sits in the 911 GT3. In the 911, it produces 500 PS (493 HP / 368 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft), but will allegedly be detuned for the Cayman GT4.

Until then, the GTS will be the top dog in the Cayman’s line up – and this is a chance to see how it going flat out at no speed limit section of Germany’s Autobahn, where it hit 294 km/h (183 mph).

    Given the price, and that it’s a Porsche, why is this a big deal?

    Ill admit, I only clicked on this to see if the engine sounded any better in the GTS model. Don’t much care about top speed b.s. “tests” on the Autobahn. That said, it sounds better than most 4-cyl turbos and reminds me of older VW’s for some reason, which I kind of like. That said, its simply entirely overshadowed by the prior flat-6’s beautiful music. Porsche simply set the bar too high for itself with prior engines.
