Porsche has taken the wraps off the new 718 GTS.

Designed to appeal to driving enthusiasts, the model features a new front bumper and tinted lighting units. The sporty styling continues at the rear as designers installed a black rear apron and a center-mounted sports exhaust system. Other highlights include black GTS badging and 20-inch wheels with a satin black finish.

The interior largely carries over and comes equipped with Alcantara sport seats featuring GTS logos embroidered into the headrests. Drivers will also find an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and a standard Sport Chrono Package.

Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 365 PS (269 kW) and up to 430 Nm (317 lb-ft) of torque. The engine can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an optional PDK transmission. When equipped with the latter gearbox, the cars can accelerate 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.1 seconds before hitting a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph).

The 718 GTS is currently available to order and German pricing starts at €76,137 for the Cayman GTS and €78,160 for the Boxster GTS. U.S. deliveries are slated to begin in March and pricing starts at $79,800 for the Cayman GTS and $81,900 for the Boxster GTS.
