Ceramic Pro New York – Here is a brand new Porsche Boxter GTS that came in for a Ceramic Pro Gold Package. This car had 50 miles on it and was the perfect time to get the vehicle protected. The vehicle required some light paint correction and then we commenced with the Ceramic Pro Application.
The factory is bolting its finest speed-making equipment to the Boxster to add another GTS model to its arsenal, which is a fancy way for Porsche to throw $10,000 on the hood and retain every last residual cent.
That’s about how much you’d need to spec a regular Boxster S with the additional standard features found on the GTS—and you still wouldn’t get the extra power. In GTS trim, the 3.4-liter flat-six jumps by 15 horses over the S model to 330 horsepower while torque rises 7 lb-ft to 273. Much like the 997-generation 911 Carrera GTS and the Boxster RS60 Spyder from 2008, the Boxster GTS gets two-stage adjustable dampers that drop the ride height by 0.4 inch and a sport exhaust that lets out evil crackles of unburned fuel.
Porsche says that the extra juice knocks a tenth off the 0-to-60-mph time of Boxsters equipped with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic, down to 4.4 seconds. Based on our last test of a Boxster S, which yielded a 4.2-second 0–60 sprint, we suspect the GTS may clock a sub four-second time without much drama. At the limit, the GTS edges its S counterpart by 1 mph for a top speed of 174 mph.
But the cosmetic upgrades are what truly signal your intent to carve corners. Everything that can be tinted or coated with a black finish appears in plain sight, including the restyled front and rear valences, bi-xenon headlamps and LED taillamps, subtle GTS scripts on the doors and decklid, and the exhaust tips. The gorgeous 20-inch Carrera S wheels also are available, and of course they come in black. Inside, black Alcantara trim covers the seat inserts, steering wheel, door panels, headliner, and central storage bin. The rest is trimmed in leather with carbon-fiber strips along the center console, dash, and doors, with “GTS” embroidered on the headrests and pasted on the tachometer.

Paint must be fully corrected before applying a protective coating (nano or ceramic) due to the fact that once the coating is on your car it becomes a new surface on top of your clearcoat. Anything left on the paint will be locked in and require a complete polishing process to correct.
