The Porsche 718 Cayman GTS is one of the few new Porsche’s that launched with a thud. Everyone wanted the classic 3.4-liter flat-six, maybe even a 3.6-liter, but instead they were served up a turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four. To make it even worse, it sounded like a Subaru WRX. Porsche owners don’t want Subaru sounds. The numbers on paper were mightily disappointing as well, given their performance in the real world was nearly identical to the 718 Cayman S. That means you paid over $12,000 more just to get the standard GTS stuff like brake-based torque vectoring, the Sport Chrono package, adaptive dampers with a lower ride height, 20-inch wheels, and sport seats that are otherwise optional on the Boxster S. In that light I suppose that was a good value? Either way, Porsche knew they screwed up so went back to the drawing board and thankfully gave us the GTS 4.0. However, that doesn’t mean the flat-four versions suddenly fell off the face of the earth.
Today, we have a 2018 up for sale in New York with the great color of Sapphire Blue Metallic and just 6,200 miles. But I hope you aren’t expecting a deal on this one.

Thankfully this is six-speed car, but that is where the fun ends. The sticker price on this one was $89,620, and today we have an asking price of $87,895. Yikes. I get that Porsche GTS cars are generally in demand, but this is one of the rare exceptions that there just isn’t a huge line of eager bidders for – especially when priced nearly at sticker from five years ago. Porsche screwed up so badly that they literally had to put a new engine in the car within the same generation; a very bad sign for the model we’re looking at. If these were priced at $60,000? Sure. I can see maybe living with this engine, but not at $87,000, which is of course exactly where the new GTS 4.0 starts. I live in reality and know you aren’t buying a GTS 4.0 for that, but that doesn’t mean one should run out and buy this one. I think these will go as a black sheep in the modern Porsche world, and one day prices will reflect that. One day. Hopefully.
