So, this might be one of the most one-sided drag races and sets of comparison tests carwow for quite some time now. Horsepower does not count. Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Vs Boxster GTS.
Now we will not spoil the actual results, despite the actual idea of this race is to find out if The extra cost of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, which comes out to £ 30,000 ($ 36,800) more expensive in the UK when compared to the £ 62,000 ($ 76,000) Boxster GTS, is worth the investment in terms of performance. While both cars are unmistakably Porsches, the differences are glaring when it comes down to the numbers.
The Boxster GTS in this test comes with a mid-mounted turbocharged 2.5-liter flat four engine that makes 365 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. It's got a seven-speed dual clutch automatic and is limited to rear-wheel drive. The 911 Carrera 4S, on the other hand, has a turbocharged 3.0-liter flat six with 450 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed dual clutch automatic with all-wheel drive. Yeah, not looking too good for the Boxster, eh? Both cars have launch control, however, and the Boxster GTS is 3.307 pounds, making it 220 pounds lighter.
