The 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS comes with a 3.4 liter mid-mounted water-cooled flat-six engine, the engine can produces 330hp at 6,700 rpm and 370Nm of torque at 4,500-5,800 rpm. The engine revs all the way up to 7,800 rpm and runs on Super Plus 98 octane. In comparison to the Boxster S, the GTS has a mere 15hp more and the power-to-weight ratio drops to just below 4kg per hp.
The 2015 Porsche Boxster GTS sprints from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and tops out at 281 km/h. In normal mode with start / stop system the Boxster GTS uses just 8.2 liter per 100 km. On our more fun filled test run we needed a little bit more than that though.
The top speed of around 280 km/h is sufficient and despite solid performance and good balance this is unlike the 911 not the car for long fast autobahn journeys. Instead take it off the autobahn and a whole new world opens up. The weight distribution could hardly be better and no matter what damper setting you use the car swings from corner to corner with ease and joy. The car feels very neutral and tidy through corners, understeer is non-existent.
