As per Stuttgart law, that says there should be a Porsche suited to every person on planet Earth, the company has now further expanded its 718 range of mid-engined sports cars with the addition of the top-of-the-line GTS models.

Just announced, the soft-top 718 GTS and tin-top 718 GTS arrive with 15 horsepower more than the next models down the rung, the S variants. And like all GTS cars they come with six-speed manuals as standard kit, with the seven-speed PDK optional equipment.

The name of the game with the GTS is standard kit that would normally cost you extra on the base car, or the S, so if you go for a 718 GTS you get Porsche Torque Vectoring with a mechanical limited slip differential and Sport Chrono as standard, plus Porsche Active Suspension Management that drops the GTS cars 10mm closer to the ground.

With the extra 15bhp coaxed out of the 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the GTS makes 365bhp and 430Nm of torque from 1,900rpm. Tick all the boxes and you’ll see zero to 100km/h come up in 4.1 seconds going on to a top speed of 290km/h. That’s half a second quicker in the sprint than the 718 S model, and a full second quicker than the base car.

Other typical GTS touches include gloss black finishes to the 20-inch wheels, black-tinted Xenon headlights and tinted taillights, black logos, black rear apron, and black tailpipes. Inside there is generous use of Alcantara on the seats, steering wheel and centre console, and owners will also get the Porsche Precision App to assist with track driving, and also record and display your track driving data on a smartphone so you can analyse your performance.

Available to order now, the 718 Cayman GTS starts from AED277,100 in our region, while the 718 Boxster GTS starts from 288,800.
