German automaker of sports cars, Porsche, has added two distinctive sporty models of high specifications to the company's mid-engine car range which are the 718 Boxster GTS 4.0 and 718 Cayman GTS 4.0.

The auto brand's representative in Nigeria, Stallion Autos, did make mention of bringing the high-performance models into the country in 2020. However, the exact date or how soon the new sportscars will be unveiled on Nigerian soil wasn't confirmed.

The redesigned 718 GTS 4.0 luxury rides took some cues from the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4. They are powered by the same four-liter six-cylinder boxer engine installed on the Spyder and GT4 model. This engine is believed to crank out 394 HP and a torque of 309.

As reports reach us at Naijauto.com, the 718 Boxster and Cayman GTS 4.0 will be taking over from the 718 Spyder and 718 Cayman GT4 which were discontinued in the 2019 model year.

As explained by Porsche,

Here, the engine makes 395bhp -19bhp less than the GT4 – and revs up to a 7,800rpm red line, piped to the rear of the car via a sport exhaust system. Both coupe and roadster feature a manual six-speed transmission as standard,” Auto Express explains.

The result is a 0-62mph time of 4.5 seconds for both the Cayman and Boxster GTS, and a 182mph top speed. That’s four tenths and 2mph quicker than the outgoing four-cylinder Cayman GTS

The automaker claims the fuel consumption of the redesigned models reduced from 28.5mpg -25.9mpg, but reviewers say it's slightly thirstier. The CO2 emission came at 246g/km.

Aside from the engine being the same, other features present in the GTS are similar to the previous 718 Cayman and Booster models. The GTS models also boast of the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Torque Vectoring with mechanical limited-slip rear differential and chassis lowered by 20 millimeters which promises an exciting driving experience.

The redesigned models came fitted with 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped up in 235 millimeters section tires installed at the front, while 265 millimeters tires went to the rear.

The difference between these two new models and other Cayman and Boxster lineups can be found on the exterior view. The spoiler lip, rear diffuser, and air intake are all featured with black accents while the head and tail lamps got a smoked finish.

Other packages which are optional are the decorative seams, rev counter and seat belts which customers can have in either red or yellow.

The German automaker is proud to present that the GTS models offer agile steering, precise handling, and responsive cornering.

It combines dynamic handling with suspension comfort that is suitable for everyday use. Porsche Active Suspension Management is part of its standard equipment
