Tailored for sporting responsiveness and athletic style, Porsche is expanding the choice of its two-seat mid-engined sports cars with the introduction of the 718 Cayman GTS. In true Porsche GTS spirit, the output of the 2.5-litre, four-cylinder flat ‘boxer’ engine has been increased to 365bhp courtesy of a new intake system and an optimised turbocharger. These improvements generate 15bhp more power compared with the 718 S model, and up to 35bhp more power than the prior GTS models. A manual six-speed gearbox is standard, with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) double-clutch transmission available as an option. Standard equipment includes the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear axle limited slip differential and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the body by ten millimetres.
The GTS models stand out among the 718 range not only in terms of their dynamic technology, but also their styling. The new Sport Design front apron hints at its sporting character. As is typical for GTS models, the front light modules and the Bi-Xenon headlights are black-tinted. At the rear, the tinted tail lights, black logos, black apron and centrally positioned black tailpipes of the standard sports exhaust system give the GTS its distinct appearance. Black GTS logos at the base of the doors and 20-inch wheels painted in black (satin finish) further differentiate these models.
This 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS offered on Collecting Cars, is a quick and stylish sports car that boasts significant improvements over the Cayman S as a means of enhancing its performance and sporting character. This is an incredible example with its desirable Graphite Blue Metallic finish complemented by a black leather and Alcantara-trimmed interior. Highly commended by its seller for delivering a truly immersive driving experience, it would no doubt impress its next owner as a country road cruiser or as a daily driver.
