ATLANTA The 2014 Porsche Boxster GTS starts at $74,495 and the 2014 Porsche Cayman GTS starts at $76,195, Porsche Cars North America announced on Wednesday. Both prices include the $995 destination charge.

The top-of-the-line 2014 Porsche Boxster GTS and 2014 Porsche Cayman GTS arrive at U.S. dealerships this summer.

In comparison, a base 2014 Porsche Cayman starts at $53,595, including shipping. A base 2014 Porsche Boxster starts at $52,395, including shipping.

The company said this is the first time the two will be offered as GTS models. The GTS designation denotes more powerful engines and additional standard performance equipment.

The 3.4-liter six-cylinder boxer engine of the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS models delivers an additional 15 horsepower compared to their "S" model counterparts. The Boxster GTS delivers 330 hp and the Cayman GTS delivers 340 hp.

Torque has been increased by 7 pound-feet in each model: 273 lb-ft in the Boxster GTS and 280 lb-ft in the Cayman GTS.

The cars are equipped with either the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional seven-speed PDK transmission.

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.

    No disrespect intended but this is a terribly written article. First, the writer compares the base price of the Boxster/Cayman to the GTS. When in fact, you should be comparing a Boxster S/Cayman S. Second, the writer states "Car shoppers should expect to pay a hefty premium if they want their Boxster or Cayman to sport the iconic GTS badge". That's probably not true since usually the GTS "package" includes a lot of stuff which in total, would cost more than the sum of the individual options. That is the case with the current Cayenne GTS, the Panamera GTS and the old, 997 model 911 GTS. Also, that same line of thinking suggests that a Porsche Turbo S buyer is paying a huge premium over a base Carrera. Nonsense. I'm not saying that Porsches are affordable or bargains in any way stretch or form but at least don't be lazy and compare apples to apples.
