Porsche may be spotted testing prototype versions products may be MY2020 updates for the 718 Boxster GTS and 718 Cayman GTS.
The interesting this specific spy video could it be could confirm Porsche has repaired the engine and exhaust noise on the GTS models. Porsche has been criticised because it introduced 2.0-litre turbo flat-four engines with the 718 range, as well as the GTS (our review and 0-100 video here) models which come with a 2.5-litre turbo flat-four.
However, as we saw while using latest Cayman T and Boxster T, Porsche discovers how to recreate a well used trademark sing and howl it’s famous for, even from a four-cylinder engine. We had (and heard) prototypes of your T floating the Nurburgring, with lots of (including us) believing that the engine became a six-cylinder.
In this latest spy video the publisher shows that these too make use of a flat-six engine. Plus they very well might. But if you listen carefully the prototypes actually sound similar to those earlier prototypes in the 2.0-litre T variants. We have a distinct bass reduced in the revs, yet a top pitch wail as the revs climb.
If you listen really carefully there are numerous hints of turbo during the exhaust note, too. Turbocharged engines usually deliver a slightly bassier undertone. While in the gear shifts, when the revs drop down, the prototypes deliver a distinct thud as a turbo also.
Our guess is Porsche has crafted its renowned singing soundtrack for your larger 2.5-litre turbo flat-four to your GTS. Both Boxster and Cayman have emerged within the video, producing an analogous soundtrack. And both seem to be wearing the exact same black camouflage treatment.
Instead of the common non colored documents swirly camo wrap, Porsche is opting for black sheeting featuring its prototypes. It seems like to be effective since it is hard to fill in the finer information on the cars. Carry out notice the pop-up small wing in the, as well as the extended body skirting in contrast to the totally normal models.
