2017 Porsche 911 GTS Review. Porsche is expanding the 911 product line with the GTS models. From March 2017, a total of five 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 the above availa-ble as a Coupé and Cabriolet – and the 911 Targa 4 GTS with all-wheel drive. A newly developed turbocharger for 3.0-litre six-cylinder flat engine increases power to 331 kW (450 horsepower). The engine delivers 22 kW (30 hp) more than the 911 Carrera S and 15 kW (20 hp) more than the corresponding GTS prior model with a naturally aspirated engine. All variants are available with a manual seven-gear transmission or optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
The maximum torque of 550 Nm provides even better acceleration and elasticity figures. The torque is available between 2150 and 5000 rpm. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is included as standard on all GTS models. The GTS Coupés feature the PASM sports chassis, which lowers the body by ten millimetres. The fastest sprinter in the family is the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé: With PDK and the Sport Chrono Package as standard, it races from zero to 100 km/h (0-62mph) in 3.6 seconds. All GTS models feature a top speed in excess of 300 km/h (186mph). The frontrunner at 312 km/h (193mph) is the Coupé with manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

911 Carrera GTS 124,451 euros
911 Carrera 4 GTS 131,829 euros
