Porsche is set to offer up the very first GTS variants of its more affordable Boxster convertibles and Cayman coupes. This is very good news for enthusiasts. Aside from our original post announcing the hotted up models, though, Porsche hasn't given us much to go on.

And you know what? This video isn't much of help either. It's called The Committee, and we're guessing it's meant to highlight the lengths that Porsche went to in designing what are essentially sportier trim levels for its two most affordable entries. Still, it's a stylized and entertaining video with a few entertaining driving scenes scattered throughout, and it gives just a small glimpse of Porsche's view of the vaunted GTS badge.

Take a look below for the full video.

      To Porsche: Let's be reminded of the quote; "Committees are, by nature, timid. They are based on the premise of safety in numbers; content to survive inconspicuously, rather than take risk and move independently ahead. Without independence, without the freedom for new ideas to be tried, to fail, and to ultimately succeed, the world will not move ahead, but live in fear of its own potential." Ferdinand Porsche

      Outside of the 15 horsepower increase, there does not appear to be any custom engineering. They basically added options from the Cayman S and a new fascia and tail. Even the horsepower bump likely uses 911 parts. That is not a problem; it is exactly in line with the usual GTS designation. But this video is completely ridiculous.

      Give me a break. How tough is it to stuff a 3.8 in there with a bigger transmission and bigger brakes/tires. Or carbon/ceramic brakes. The reason Porsche may not is because it will spank the 911 GTS.

        Apparently, cooling is an issue in the mid-engine Cayman. I am not sure if I believe that, but that's what I have heard. I do agree that a Cayman GT3 would be epic.

      No German ever left their vacation to go back to work. Ever.

        Its a value package. It comes standard with: PASM Bi-Xenons with PDLS Sport Chrono Sport Exhaust Sport Design Steering Wheel Sport Seats Plus 20" Wheels Full leather or alcantara interior is a zero cost option Tinted taillights More horsepower/torque (15hp / 7 lb ft) Different front/rear bumpers + a few other small things If you were to price these items on a 'S' Boxster or Cayman you would end up paying a little more.

      At first I thought they had to go to the "911-engine-fire-emergency-meeting"!?

      I dont think much more horsepower will come of this but who knows maybe more displacement and higher rpm to surprise us. Doubt they will do turbo as it would out drive the 911

      It felt a bit like The Apprentice, and somebody was going to get fired.
