981 Porsche Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS gain 11kW, 10Nm over S models

Porsche has unveiled the first GTS versions of its Boxster and Cayman twins, each boasting a 3.4-litre 6-cylinder boxer engine with an extra 11kW over the Boxster/Cayman S.

As with the Boxster S and Cayman S siblings, the Cayman GTS (below) features slightly more power and torque than its equivalent Boxster version (above). This leads to marginally better performance for the Cayman GTS coupe, although both GTS models return the same fuel economy figures in official EU testing.
