Exterior

The Cayman GTS has a look that resembles the "911", but at half the cost.

Up front, it sports a new bumper and LED running lights. Underneath the HID headlamps are dual finned air intakes. Both the intakes and front grille, that is now more of a rectangular shape, are painted dark gray.

In the rear, there is an air diffuser and twin exhausts also in dark gray. Between the taillights there is yet another dark gray accent strip. The color shows up several times in other areas of the vehicle with the intention of portraying a muscular presence.

The low profile is nicely accentuated by a set of distinctive 20 inch wheels.

Interior

Alcantara, not leather, is the preferred interior covering. The material is on the seats, arm rests, center console, dash and steering wheel.

The center console itself is impressive containing most of the controls and topped off with an infotainment screen. The new red tachometer in the center of the instrument cluster is a real eye catcher.

Competition is expected to come from the likes of "less expensive" vehicles such as the BMW M235i Coupe and Nissan 370Z Nismo.

Exterior

While the modifications to the Ghost Series II are not extreme, by Rolls-Royce standards they are monumental. It begins up front where new LED headlights replace those oddly, almost droopy headlamps of the past.

The new headlights do not take away from the traditional and prestigious front grille and the "Spirit of Ecstasy" logo on the hood. Another change to the front façade entails a larger chrome air intake which assist in cooling the brakes.

The profile has changed slightly with waft lines moved forward ever so subtlety.
The rear appears wider, but otherwise is the same as previous Ghost incarnations.

Inside remains the extraordinary luxury styling Rolls fans are accustomed to.

Most of the changes are technological in nature including the "Spirit of Ecstasy" rotary controller touch pads to keep the "Grey Poupon" fingerprints off the screen.
