Spy Shots: Porsche Cayman GTS Caught in the Light Snow
Patience is great, but perseverance and a keen eye sometimes nets better results, and that is exactly how our spy photographers managed to snatch up our first spy shots of the upcoming Cayman GTS. The prototype that our guys caught out in the light snow was nearly undisguised, but that’s no surprise, considering drumming up images of a Cayman GTS doesn’t take much brain power.
As expected, this hot Cayman sports a revised front bumper and new LED lights, The new bumper and its splitter help add a more aggressive look to the Cayman and likely add some downforce to the front axle. Around back, we can see that the GTS package will add a new diffuser.
What you can’t see in these images is what Porsche did under the hood. Under here, we expect to see a 15-horsepower bump over the Cayman S’s numbers, netting the Cayman GTS 340 horsepower from its flat-six engine. Not too shabby for the Boxster’s hard-topped sibling.
The Prototype had 19-inch wheels to help fit winter shoes under the models, but we expect to see 20s on the production model.
The new front bumper is the most striking difference between the Cayman S and GTS.
A new rear diffuser helps reduce drag s the air flows out from under the backside of the Cayman.
For 2014, Porsche rolls out a new generation for the Cayman, but it is more of a evolution of last year’s model than a full overhaul. The 2014 Cayman gets a longer wheelbase and shorter overhangs to help improve its performance.
Under its hood, the 2014 Cayman S carries a 3.4-lterboxer engine with 325 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque. That power is enough to get the Cayman S to 60 mph in as little as 4.4 seconds and up to 174 mph.
