When Porsche introduced the update of the Boxster and Cayman added the surname 718, inherited from the racing world, to remind us that the big change of this model was in the new engines, turbo 4 cylinder, as these renewal is based on the previous generation, which formed part of naturally aspirated engines, and not in a completely new designed from scratch.
By the time Porsche has only submitted two versions, the standard Boxster and the Boxster S. And they will not be the only ones.Our photographers have captured a prototype of a more powerful version: the GTS.

Porsche 718 Boxster GTS, seen for the first time
This prototype does not have the front bumper or rear definitive, but we find two details that draw our attention. The first of them lower lip of the front bumper that will give a greater aerodynamic downforce at high speed. The second is the rear bumper that is completely provisional. We hope to equip a suspension lower and stiffer, wheels special for this release, as well as a exhaust specific in order to make the Porsche 718 Boxster GTS stands out for its sound.
The earlier GTS version, the difference of power compared to the model S was only 15 HP, but we expect that the increase of power is this time more generous. If the S version has 350 horsepower, we expect some 375 HP for the GTS.
The Porsche 718 Boxster GTS will come with transmission manual as well as PDK and will hit the market in the second half of 2017.
