New Porsche 718 GTS Put To The Test By Two Racing Drivers

Not long before presenting the 718 GTS Boxster and Cayman, Porsche took two examples to Sicily, where they shot a rather uncommon launch film.

The 6-minute long video shows the two sports cars on the Targa Florio, with Dario Franchitti and CJ Wilson behind the wheel.

The two professional racing drivers took turn in experiencing both the latest Porsche models, and ( anyone would expect from a manufacture commercial) they were thrilled to have had the chance to drive them, long before journalists were asked to try out the new 718 GTS cars.

Naturally, Porsche also took the opportunity to shoot a basic promo on the same roads of Southern Italy, but before checking out both videos, we will remind you that the two 718 GTS cars use a 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, rated at 365PS (360hp) and 430Nm (317lb-ft) of torque.

Buyers can choose between two transmissions: a standard 6-speed manual or an optional PDK automatic. The 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint takes just 4.1sec with the latter, and top speed stands at 290km/h (180mph).
