Porsche 911 GTS pumped up muscles and got new options – DRIVE

There are accents painted in silky black or high-gloss black to choose from (engine cover grille and others). All GTS come with the Sport Design Package with special styling for the front, rear and side sills.

In the range of variants of the current family Porsche 911 (992 series), five new sports cars have appeared with the GTS prefix to the name: the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Coupe and Cabriolet (with rear wheel drive), plus the all-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe and Cabriolet, the 911 Targa 4 GTS.

All 911 GTS models use an eight-speed PDK “robot”, which can optionally be replaced by a seven-speed “manual”. The Carrera 4 GTS coupe with a “robot” copes with a set of hundreds from scratch in 3.3 seconds. This is 0.3 s faster than the same variation in the previous generation after the update. The dynamics logically correspond to the position of the “GTS” in the 911 lineup. For comparison, the Carrera 4S even with the Sport Chrono package accelerates to 100 in 3.4 seconds, track-oriented 510 hp 911 GT3 for the same 3.4, but 580-strong 911 Turbo fits into 2.8 s.

PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) dampers on the GTS are standard. In the coupe and convertible, the suspension is also lowered by 10 mm. The targa carries the chassis from the 911 Targa 4 S. Better brakes are taken from the Turbo. And the 911 GTS family was one of the first to receive an improved multimedia complex. PCM with additional features, simplified controls, Android Auto integration in addition to the already existing Apple CarPlay.

The rim diameters are 20 and 21 inches (front / rear). Pay attention to the GTS Coupe – its black center-mount rims are the same as those of the Turbo S.

For the first time ever, a Lightweight Design package is available for the GTS. Due to the lighter battery, lighter rear and side windows, removal of the rear seats and the front bucket seats made of carbon fiber, the curb weight of these “JITS” is reduced by 25 kg. This package will come in one kit with some aerodynamic additions and a rear axle steering. But it is available only from November this year.
