Guys we’ve had a real blast having explored the other main stays of the modern Porsche line up, but we have yet to touch on the cars that probably saved the brand: so today we explore the origins of the entry level line up of the sports car brand, while looking at the New 718 Cayman GTS! We’ll also check out the sound of the new 2020 GTS with the 6 cylinder 4.0 engine! Now the original Entry level to Porsche was the 911. That was pretty much all porsche originally built in the early 90’s, alongside some other low volume highly priced cars like the transaxle 928. But when a worldwide financial slump hit, Porsche surely felt the effect of this being on the verge of doom in 1992. Entered new CEO Wendelin Wiedeking! Rather than bank on the low volume 989 4 door car, Wiedeking said that the sub 40k sports car segment was 6 times larger the the 911 and would provide Stability to porsche in difficult times by doubling production numbers. And what he imagined was the Porsche Boxster concept. Part sharing with the 911 996, it was “the first Porsche developed with a priority on efficient assembly”: but what they really mean is low cost and high profit! Porsche’s production numbers swelled to triple making it the highest selling porsche ever, And so the successful new series grew in both variations and then project 987c: aka the Cayman Coupé!! Today we have the “New” 718, the latest iteration of the entry level Porsche. Renamed to 718, as It’s lost two cylinders, going from a naturally aspirated flat-6 engine to a turbocharged 2.5 flat-4 engine. Shock and horror at it’s introduction, all versions featured the 4 cyl unless it was GT product Including this first GTS with only 16BHP more than the Cayman S and the same 0-60 and performance figures all around... But luckily for us petrolheads and Porsche fans, in an unprecedented twist of fortune Porsche have JUST announced that the 2020 718 GTS will now get the 4.0 6 Cylinder as found in the GT4!! Albeit detuned, the new engine is 395 BHP meaning a significant 50BHP bump over the S. The 0-60 is very close to the GT4 cars and the engine revs to 7800 rpm now. But today we will explore everything that’s led to this moment and beyond, while we look at the full history of the Boxster and Cayman!
