New Porsche 911 GTS announced

More powerful 911 Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa models due in March

Porsche has added to the 911 range by introducing a new GTS model. The 911 GTS will be available in Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa variants, offering buyers extra power and a more focused driving experience than the standard 911.

The GTS uses the same turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol engine as the basic 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. These cars come with seven-speed manual gearboxes as standard, with the PDK automatic available as an option.

The 911 Coupe and Cabriolet GTS models are available with rear or four-wheel drive, while the Targa version is four-wheel-drive only. However, all GTS models use the wider four-wheel-drive bodystyle to give them a more muscular stance.

The 911 Carrera 4 GTS is the quickest in the GTS range; when fitted with the PDK automatic gearbox, it’ll do 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds.

The GTS badge isn’t just about more power and performance: it also brings a range of styling changes to set it apart 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 aluminium trim and a centrally mounted stopwatch.

The rear-wheel-drive 911 GTS Coupe is the cheapest of the GTS models, at £94,316, with the range topping out at £108,144 for the four-wheel-drive Targa 4 GTS. The 911 GTS is on sale now, with first deliveries expected in March.
