DRIVE: PORSCHE 718 BOXSTER AND CAYMAN GTS
With remarkable acceleration and dynamics, the Porsche 718 GTS Boxster and Cayman will be hard acts to follow.
the more they change. The highestperformance versions of Porsche’s mid-engine sports models really do rearrange the words of that shopworn phrase. Because even though the 718 Boxster and Cayman GTS look similar enough to the base and S models, these hottest iterations deliver performance— however it’s measured—that eclipses that of any mid-engine predecessor save the outgoing Cayman GT4. And both new GTS models may even inspire technical types to question the logic of opting for a 911 Carrera. Whether on acceleration, handling dynamics, or amenities, the open-top Boxster and Cayman coupe present tough propositions to beat, and in the under-$100K segment they have no equals. (Remember when that amount of money would buy a new 911 Turbo?)
