The official importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia, Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) has launched not one, but two performance models last week at the newly opened Porsche Centre Sungai Besi! Say hello to the Porsche Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS.
Under the hood of the duo is a flat six 3.4-litre engine, which boasts an increase of 15 horsepower over the non-GTS variant. The Porsche Boxster GTS now produces a total of 330 horsepower, while the Cayman GTS delivers a total of 340 hp. Torque wise, the Boxster GTS pumps out 370 Nm of torque, while the Cayman GTS produces 380 Nm of torque. Both delivers their peak torque from 4,500 rpm till 5,800 rpm.
Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of SDAP said, “The GTS concept has already been implemented in the 911, Cayenne and Panamera. And now the very same concept adorns the new Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS, both lightweight mid-engined sports cars, making it possible for customers to enjoy superior race track performance with uncompromising everyday utility and comfort.”
Both models come standard with Porsche’s Sport Chrono package, which consists of the Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) gearbox and active Sport Plus button. This enables the Porsche Boxster GTS to hit 100 km/h from standstill in just 4.7 seconds, while the Cayman GTS completes the same sprint in 4.6 seconds. With the standard six speed manual the Porsche Boxster GTS can hit a top speed 281 km/h, while the Porsche Cayman GTS tops out at 285 km/h.
Part of the standard GTS equipment is the sport exhaust set up that has been specially tuned to deliver “emotional sound with reduced back pressure“. The driver can choose to activate the sport exhaust via a switch or via the Sport Plus button. The GTS duo also sits 10 mm lower thanks to the standard PASM adaptive damping control system. With the Sport Plus button pressed, the PASM “Sport” mode stiffens the dampers and sharpens handling. Both models ride on 20-inch wheels and comes with tyre pressure monitoring system.
The Porsche Boxster GTS will have a starting price of RM660,000, while the Cayman GTS has a starting price of RM700,000. Both models will come with a 4-year factory warranty and 4 year complimentary service maintenance package. Both prices exclude registration fees, road tax and insurance.
