Porsche reveals the 911 Carrera GTS {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

There are a staggering 16 variants of the Porsche 911 available at the moment, all catering to slightly different needs. And within those models there are a bewildering array of options, so thankfully Porsche tend to bring out a GTS model of each generation which is basically a ‘best of’ the options list.

After the recent Boxster and Cayman GTS models, it’s now the turn of the 911. The 911 GTS comes in four different configurations in itself – 2WD or 4WD, coupe or convertible. So you simply choose whether you want handling purity or all-weather traction, coupe comfort or wind-in-the-hair convertible motoring and away you go. Oh, then decide whether you want manual or PDK.

The GTS models get all the best options from the 911 list, which means the outside gets the Sport Design front bumper, bi-xenon darkened headlights, black centre lock alloy wheels and darkened tailpipes, plus GTS script on the doors. Inside there are GTS logos and lots of standard alcantara.

Under the bodywork the GTS gets some serious upgrades though, not least of which is the Powerkit, taking the 3.8 litre flat-six to 424 bhp. The other standard kit includes Porsche’s Chrono package and PASM (active suspension).

Performance is suitably improved, with the 2wd GTS coupe with PDK gearbox taking 4.0 seconds to reach 62 mph on the way to a 189 mph top speed.

The 911 GTS starts at £91,098 and goes on sale in November.
