Porsche Introduces 911 GTS

 


Porsche will be expanding its 911 product line with GTS models. Beginning in March 2017, five different variants will be available in Germany - the 911 Carrera GTS with rear-wheel drive, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS with all-wheel drive (both of which will be available as a Coupé or Cabriolet), and the 911 Targa 4 GTS with all-wheel drive. The GTS models will feature a newly developed turbocharger for th e3.0-litre six-cylinder flat engine which increases power to 450 hp. All four variants will be available with a manual seven-gear transmission or optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).

The 911 GTS model line will stand out not only in terms of technology, but it will also stand out with its visual design. All of the vehicles are based on the wide all-wheel-drive chassis, measuring at 1852 mm, even on the rear-wheel-drive models. In addition, the new Sport Design will have a front apron the will emphasize the sporty character, as well as an aerodynamically optimized front end. Further reducing the lift on the front and rear axle will be a low front spoiler and increased rear spoiler extension height, when compared to the Carrera S models. On the rear, the GTS is unmistakable. The 911 GTS will feature smoked tail lights, silk-gloss black air intake grille and central black twin tailpipes of the sports exhaust system, which is standard.

The outside isn’t the only part of the 911 that will be impacted by the GTS genes it possesses. The stopwatch of the Sport Chrono Package is integrated as a central component of the dashboard. In addition, the Porsche Track Precision app has been enhanced to coincide with the market launch of the GTS models and will feature automatic recording, detailed display and analysis of driving data on a smartphone. The GTS will feature Alcantara seats with a new stitching pattern and the Sports seats Plus with GTS logos on the headrests will be able to be adjusted in 4-ways electrically, all while providing increased lateral support and comfort. Other features include brushed, black anodised aluminium trim strips on the instrument cluster, as well as a high proportion of Alcantara, which can be found on the steering wheel rim, centre console and armrests.
