Porsche has added to the 911 range by introducing a new GTS model. The 911 Carrera GTS with rear-wheel drive, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS with all-wheel drive – both of the above available as a Coupé and Cabriolet – and the 911 Targa 4 GTS with all-wheel drive.
The GTS uses the same turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol engine as the standard 911, but Porsche has increased its power by 30bhp to 444bhp. The car comes with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard and all three variants have lowered suspension to enhance cornering ability.
The Sport Chrono pack is also fitted as standard to GTS models, meaning buyers automatically benefit from dynamic engine mounts and a sports exhaust system. All cars are available with a manual seven-gear transmission or optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
The 911 Carrera 4 GTS is the quickest in the GTS range; when fitted with the PDK automatic gearbox, 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds.
The GTS cars will also look different from the standard 911. Black 20-inch alloy wheels are standard, as are smoked lenses for the lights and a black air intake grille. Seats are upholstered in Alcantara with GTS logos and the dashboard is finished with aluminum trim.
The 911 GTS is on sale now, with first deliveries expected in March/April.
