Both feature Porsche Active Suspension Management as standard. This feature offers the choice of a sportier or more comfortable ride setting with the press of a button.
The cabins include an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, headliner, center console and inserts on the standard Sport Seats Plus. GTS badging rounds out the package.
The GTS nomenclature refers to such legendary racecars as the 1963 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS.
The Porsche Cayman GTS competes with high-end versions of the 2014 Audi TT and 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The Porsche Boxster GTS competes with top-of-the-line versions of the 2014 BMW Z4 and Nissan 370Z.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers should expect to pay a hefty premium if they want their Boxster or Cayman to sport the iconic GTS badge.
