Porsche Boxster and Cayman GTS

  The folks over at Autoblog.com have published a handful of photos of the GTS trimmed Boxster and Cayman.  As mentioned in their article, info about these varients were leaked a few months back along with the Macan and Targa.  Looks like the GTS Boxster and Cayman are the last of that leak to be officially unveiled.
   It will be interesting to see what other standard features Porsche puts in these two cars, but the one getting the most attention is the horsepower bump putting them at 340hp.  This bump puts them even closer to 911 performance territory.  Porsche did almost the same thing with the previous versions of the Boxster/Cayman when they released the Cayman R/Boxster Spyder. Both of these versions were quickly snatched up by P car mid engine fans and I expect this latest GTS to go similarly quick.
   The used Cayman Rs and Boxter Spyders have held value fairly well, with the biggest items determining their price to be how they were equipped.  While the PDK versions are faster the manual transmission models have been held in much higher regard by driving purists.  Only time will tell what the release of these two new models will have on the used R and Spyder market.
