2015 Porsche Boxster & Cayman Updates: Minor, But Meaningful

Follow Nelson

In addition to the all-new Boxster and Cayman GTS trim, the 2015 model year brings a handful of equipment updates. Individually, each is fairly minor, but taken together, it makes for a substantially upgraded package—at least on some variants.

New individual options available for 2015 include ParkAssist with front and rear reversing camera; PDLS+ high-beam assistant when Bi-Xenon headlamps are selected; 20-inch 911 Turbo wheels are available; a new optimized sport system exhaust; leather interior models get leather door handles with Galvano Silver trim; Caymans get all-black-only Alcantara headliner that extends to the A-pillars; and the light design package is now available without the leather package or leather interior.

A wind deflector is now standard on all Boxsters, and Caymans no longer get footwell lighting or a rear luggage net standard. A power window button surround on the passenger’s side is now all black on all models and equipment packages, as is the rear loudspeaker cover for Boxsters.

A new Basalt Black metallic paint replaces Jet Black metallic, while Carrera White metallic is now available. Cognac metallic and Amaranth Red metallic are no longer offered. Inside, two-tone Black and Garnet Red leather is available.

But the real news for 2015 is, of course, the arrival of the GTS models. Packing an upgraded version of the 3.4-liter flat-six engine found in the Boxster S and Cayman S, the GTS models gain 15 horsepower and 7 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed manual transmission is standard equipment, but both Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS can opt for the PDK dual-clutch seven-speed. With the PDK, the Boxster jets to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, while the Cayman does the deed in 4.3.
