A Closer Look

Both vehicles are quite similar in that they’re powered by a 4.0 liter flat six engine which means 44 more horsepower than previous models. They both come with a six speed manual gearbox, as well as three different driving modes with the standard Sport Chrono Package.

There are a few differences between these vehicles, though. With the 718 Cayman GTS, you get the Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes for a firmer breaking experience. You’ll also get the upgraded sport seats. Where the Boxster feels a bit more agile on the road, the Cayman offers the same speed and power in a more comfortable package.

The base price for both vehicles is around $90,000, so the biggest difference you’ll be shopping for is a slight comfort and rigidity edge.

Final Word – 718 Cayman vs. Boxster GTS

The bottom line here is that both of these models handle like a classic Porsche. You’ll find tight turns, serious speed, and the sporty fun that the GTS badge has brought to this brand’s models since 1964. Either way, you’re going to get a vehicle you love to drive.
