Porsche may have just made the public debut of the Cayman GTS and Boxster GTS at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show, but the 911-hunting models have already been spotted out in the wild, as the adjacent video shows.
Wearing their launch color, Carmine Red, the nonidentical twins were caught waiting quietly in the parking lot during a track day event. We’re not sure about the Boxster, but this Cayman GTS is fitted with the six-speed manual. The cabin also shows some notes and adding to the very early timing, this means we’re probably looking at Porsche factory cars here. Alas, the two haven’t been recorded while out on the track.

We’ll remind you that the GTS treatment stars at the center of the cars, where Porsche adds 15 hp and 10 Nm (7 lb-ft). Thus, the Boxster GTS allows the driver to play with 330 hp and 370 Nm (273 lb-ft), while the Cayman GTS takes the cake with 340 hp and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft).

Both are wearing the standard 20-inch alloy wheels and Sport Chrono package. For instance, the Cayman GTS you see here needs 4.6 seconds for the 0 to 60 mph sprint. Tick the PDK double-clutch transmission’s box on the list of options and you’ll substract 0.1 seconds.

Of course, the standard equipment, as well as the bespoke front and rear fascias, do come at a price. The Boxster GTS can be yours starting from US$73,500, while the Cayman GTS begins at US$75,200. You should also add a $995 delivery fee to that. By the way, US$10,000 seems to be the magical value here - the Boxster/ Cayman GTS are about $10k more expensive compared to the S versions, while being cheaper than the entry-level 911 by around the same amount of money.
