So, it appears to be true. Porsche are readying a 718 with a detuned engine from the GT4.

https://www.motor1.com/news/391066/porsche-cayman-gts-40-spied/

Although, some are suggesting these might be harder to come by than the GT4. It’ll be interesting to see what the allocation numbers look like on these once production starts.

As a 2.5l GTS owner I have to say I think porsche are making a really bad decision Hand Next they will be releasing an air cooled version.

I doubt it as they are even going to offer the Spyder with a PDK

I think I might be tempted by one of these. Now on the configurator starring at £65k, which is a healthy saving on the GT4.

Bet there'll be some cracking deals on the outgoing 4 pot 718 range. They'll struggle to shift them even more so now.... Surprised

Manual only, for the launch phase at least, PDK will come later.

I can spec PDK on the configurator. I've already made contact with my dealer.

Evidence that nearly new (c100 mile or less) 4 pots are seeing 20-25% discounts ie loaded up and selling at base price so options free +.........

it was always on the cards ....will obviously hit 718 prices but also 981's as I think a lot of people will now (finally) jump over Thumb

I have to admit it was a factor on my offloading the 981 GTS ie would have been easier to justify it being a keeper if Porsche where not goinmg to backtrack and offer 6 cylinder on the 718 platform Wink

ps makes the 718 name a bit of a mockery now Grin

Brief but praiseworthy article in February's edition of Evo concerning the new718 GTS.
Heavily critical in its disparagement of existing Boxster and Cayman non GTS models.
Pretty much echoing the thoughts above, including confirmation that the manual gearbox is the only transmission currently offered.

I am reliably informed by my dealer whom I just left a deposit with that the PDK is coming ‘towards the end of the years. As are the GT4 and Spyder PDK variants.

That would fit in with not "currently" available then.

Nor me you, I initially responded to mikeluke's question above about whether manual was the only transmission available, and for the time being at least, and according to the motoring press, it seems that it is for now.
Cracking looking and sounding addition to the Porsche line up, it's a shame you have to wait.
Congrats on pulling the trigger. Thumb
