We Caught The New Porsche 718 Boxster GTS Out Testing

Spy Shots

The 375-hp Porsche Boxster GTS will arrive in late 2017.

With the reveal of the Porsche Boxster and Cayman GTS back in 2014, Porsche had finally allowed its mid-engined sports car to emerge from the shadow of the towering 911. Proper suspension tuning, more power, precise steering, a six-speed manual mated to a 3.4-liter flat six that cackles all the way to an 8,000 rpm redline, made some to proclaim the Cayman/Boxster GTS the only sports car you would ever need.

When Porsche heavily facelifted the Cayman and Boxster with new four-cylinder turbocharged power plants, reviving the 718 nameplate in the process, it was only a matter of time until the same makeover was given to the more potent GTS variant. And thanks to our intrepid spy photographer it appears that time is nigh. Prototypes of the 2018 Porsche Cayman GTS have been spied testing. Note the lip spoiler below the incorrect front bumper, there to provide additional downforce, while other mods in the final product will include a lower and stiffer suspension, new wheels and a sports exhaust.

With output of the Cayman S rated at 350 horsepower, expect the GTS to get as much as 375 hp from the same twin-turbo four banger. Buyers will also get a choice of both manual and PDK transmissions when the car hits dealers towards the end of 2017. If you can't wait that long, check out the Porsche Boxster S in the meantime.
