2020 Porsche 718 GTS 4.0 First Drive Review: Who Needs Turbocharging?

Coupe or convertible, Porsche’s latest GTS is unquestionably capable.

In an era where sports cars are increasingly under threat from stricter emissions and fuel economy regulations, launching a sports car with a large, naturally-aspirated engine and a manual transmission is an occasion worth celebrating. And if instead of two sports cars instead of one, as is the case with the 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster GTS 4.0, is worth double the celebration.
