GTS stands for Gran Turismo Sport -- and it does not disappoint.
The 6-cylinder boxer engine in the GTS is based on the 3-point-4 liter engine from the Cayman S. It's been tuned up to now generate 250 kiloWatts of power.
The Cayman GTS makes the dash to 100 kilometers per hour in 4-point-9 seconds. If you order the optional dual-clutch transmission, you save a further 3 tenths of a second!
Official fuel consumption is 9 liters of super unleaded for 100 kilometers.
Driving at pace will add a good couple of liters to that figure. It will also put you over the manufacturer's C0-2 rating of 211 grams per 100 kilometer.
Reinhold Deisenhofer, Car Tester
"The Cayman GTS has plenty of power. And having a mid-engine has its benefits in terms of handling, weight distribution and sound. The Cayman GTS is as much a joy to hear as it is to drive. AND it comes with two trunks - at the front and back. Together they can pack in 425 liters of cargo - which matches a VW Golf!“
The Cayman GTS is standard-fitted with the Sport Chrono package. It includes dynamic transmission mounts, which change in stiffness and damping depending on the current driving situation. A harder setting, for example, will minimize rear movement when entering a bend. The result is greater stability and precision in the handling.
„When you shift down in Sport Plus mode, explains Reinhold, the Cayman GTS automatically adjusts the revs - with manual transmission, too. The aim is to stabilize the car around bends. The GTS costs 10,000 euros more than the Cayman S, which is a lot of money. But it also costs 20,000 euros less than the 911 Carrera, and is just as sporty.“
