By Chris Boyle

Boxster GTS _4_1Porsche is unveiling the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS at Auto China in Beijing this week.

A unique level of performance is required to wear the GTS badge, thus the duo feature more powerful engines and additional standard equipment.

Porsche is presenting the two new models for the first time at its press conference on April 20, 11:30 a.m. local time (April 19, 11:30 p.m. EST) in Hall E5, booth 05.

The Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS mid-mounted 3.4-liter six-cylinder boxer engine delivers an additional 15 hp compared to their “S” model counterparts. This means the Boxster GTS has 330 hp and the Cayman GTS has 340 hp.

Cayman GTS _3_1Torque has been increased by 7 lb.-ft. in each model: 273 lb.-ft. in the Boxster GTS and 280 lb.-ft. in the Cayman GTS. With the standard Sport Chrono package, optional PDK transmission and Sport Plus button activated, the Boxster GTS reaches 60 mph from a standstill in 4.4 seconds (4.7 seconds with manual transmission) and 4.3 seconds (4.6 seconds with manual transmission) in the Cayman GTS. The top track speed for the Boxster GTS is 174 mph (173 with PDK) and 177 mph (175 with PDK) for a Cayman GTS.

The Boxster GTS is priced from $73,500 and the Cayman GTS is priced from $75,200, excluding destination charges of $995. Both models will be available for delivery in the US this summer.

Alongside the new GTS sports cars, the 919 Hybrid and the 911 RSR racecars, and the 918 Spyder will also make their Chinese market debut in Beijing. This extraordinary lineup at Auto China reflects the rapidly growing interest in Porsche vehicles.

China is the second largest single market for Porsche after the US. In 2013, Porsche boosted sales in China by 19.9 percent to a total of 37,425 vehicles. While sales in the U.S. increased by 20.3% to a total of 42,323 vehicles.
