Porsche Boxster, Cayman Get the GTS Treatment


Porsche announced Wednesday that it is powering up the performance of its 2014 Boxster roadster and Cayman coupe. Both models will now be offered for the first time with the GTS package, increasing horsepower, torque and top speed, and adding some new standard equipment. Both new GTS models are set to arrive in the summer, with the Boxster starting at $74,495 and the Cayman at $76,195; both prices include a $995 destination charge. The prices of the S models of the Boxster and Cayman with destination are $63,095 and $64,750, so the GTS versions are an 18 percent increase for both.

Both the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS have a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine, upping the horsepower of their S counterparts by 15, bringing the Boxster's total to 330 hp and the Cayman's to 340 hp. Likewise, torque is improved by 7 pounds-feet to 273 in the Boxster and 280 in the Cayman. The Sport Chrono package is now a standard feature with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed. With the latter transmission, Sport Plus mode enables a zero-to-60-mph sprint of 4.4 seconds for the Boxster and 4.3 seconds for the Cayman; top speeds are 174 mph and 177 mph, respectively. Both come standard with Porsche Active Suspension Management, offering sport and comfort ride settings.

2014 Porsche Cayman: Photo Gallery


The Porsche Cayman's redesign follows the logical progression of its soft-top sibling, the Boxter, as it continues on a fast track to fuel efficiency. The sports coupe, bowing this week at the 2012 L.A. Auto Show, largely stays the course of its predecessor design-wise, adding new steel and aluminum pieces to the exterior in addition to a Boxster-like cabin with a flow-through center console and dashboard.

Beyond the comparable appearance to the old Cayman, the new model is around 66 pounds lighter, and power is up by as much as 10 horsepower, depending on the trim level. Those two improvements increase quickness while improving fuel economy to a high of 32 mpg. Check out the gallery below.

Porsche Prices 2009 Boxster, Cayman

09Boxster Expect the 2009 Porsche Boxster and Cayman to land at dealerships in March with improved technology, power and fuel economy. Of course, this also means a teensy price bump. The ’09 Cayman will start at $50,300, while the Cayman S will cost $60,200, not including a destination charge of $975, according to Tony Fouladpour, business communications manager for Porsche.

The Boxster will begin at a $46,600 base price and jump up to $56,700 for the Boxster S. The destination charge will be $950 for the Boxster.

Overall, Porsche’s 2009 pricing amounts to about a 1.8% jump versus the 2008 models, but this increase represents more bang for your buck. Both the Boxster and Cayman will sport Porsche’s new Direct Fuel Injection technology for increased power, while gas mileage estimates top 25 mpg — an increase in fuel economy from 2008.

Porsche's most-affordable car, the Cayman, and its roadster counterpart, the Boxster, have been upgraded for 2009 with more power, better mileage, revised suspensions and upgraded interiors. The styling has also been tweaked, with an emphasis on the lights — headlights, taillights and side marker lights.

There are also some subtle front-end changes to distinguish the coupe and roadster more. The Cayman has round fog lights and a larger grille opening. The Boxster has rectangular fog lights. Both cars now incorporate their turn signals into the halogen headlight clusters, and LED taillights are standard. An option package includes bi-xenon headlights, cornering lights and LED daytime running lights.
