Despite recently launching a compact SUV, Porsche hasn’t forgotten its sports car roots. The German car maker has added a new GTS version to its 911 model line-up.
Available in both coupe and convertible bodystyles plus rear and four-wheel drive, the 911 Carrera GTS boasts an uprated version of the 3.8-litre engine found in the regular Carrera S and a host of GTS specific standard kit.
Packing 430 horsepower – 30 more than the regular S models – the GTS shaves a few tenths off the zero to 62mph sprint when combined with Porsche’s dual clutch gearbox, while the quoted top speed with the standard fit seven-speed gearbox is now 198mph.
Visual differences run to adopting the wide body and increased rear track from the Carrera 4 variant, while the car’s rear deck sports bespoke GTS trim details and it gains unique-to-GTS matte black 20-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the driver and front passenger sit in an exclusive Alcantara interior with leather-trimmed sport seats.
Available to order now, first deliveries are expected in November with prices from £91,098 for the rear-wheel drive coupe to £104,385 for the all-wheel drive convertible.
