Until now Porsche offered GTS versions for only for the Cayenne and Panamera models, except for the 911 Carrera GTS that Porsche unveiled back in 2010. Now it looks like the GTS lineup will grow again with the addition of a new Cayman GTS model (and Boxster of course).
According to Jalopnik, the new Cayman GTS model will deliver an extra 15 horsepower over the S version, which would put it at 340 horsepower. The model will also be equipped with a standard manual transmission, with the PDK and PASM both being optional. This extra power should shave a tenth of a second, or so, off of the Cayman S’ 0-to-60 mph time, dropping it to the 4.6-second range (4.3 seconds with Sport Chrono).
Other updates will include a Sport Design front/rear fascia, GTS badging, 20-inch Carrera S wheels, upgraded steering wheel and leather interior.
Rumors point to the Cayman GTS being unveiled in April 2014, at the Beijing Auto Show .
Note: Standard model pictured here, not the real GTS.

The new Cayman was unveiled at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it went on sale on the American market in the Spring of 2013 with starting price of $52,600 for the Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S.
The model is offered with a choice of two highly efficient flat-six-cylinder engines: a 2.7-liter version that delivers a total of 275 horsepower in the base version and a 3.4-liter with an output of 325 horsepower in the S version.
The base Cayman can run from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, and goes down to 4.4 seconds on the Cayman S version equipped with the Sport Chrono. The standard Cayman can hit a top speed of 165 mph and the Cayman S can go up 175 mph.
