911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet GTS – 430 ch

Porsche 991 Carrera GTS makes world debut in Los Angeles

Last night, in front of the world’s media, Porsche unveiled the new 911 Carrera GTS at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The new car, first announced last month, was revealed in the metal by Porsche AG board member, Bernhard Maier.

Alongside Maier for the official unveiling was brand ambassador, Patrick Dempsey. Dempsey – the star of hit US TV series ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ – will race in the FIA World Endurance Championship next season in a customer Porsche 911 RSR.

Porsche 991 GTS breaks cover in issue 120

Until now, the GTS moniker has been a bit of a thorn in the side of the 991. From launch, the forever-cooking Carrera and Carrera S range was being compared with the brilliance that was the 997 Carrera GTS.

Even at Total 911, we posed the question: ‘why buy a new 991 when you could get a 997 Carrera GTS for one-third less cash?’

The Cayman GTS compounded it. Reports say this car is absolutely sensational, one of the greatest modern Porsches you can buy – and it costs not far shy of £30,000 less than even the most basic 991.

We’re all committed to the 911 here, of course, but this Cayman wasn’t such an easy car to dismiss for some, and may have created a few awkward questions in OPC dealers.

But enough is enough: the GTS lineage is already a proven hit in making the 911 even greater, and that axiom rings ever true after we broke the news online that a 991 Carrera GTS is on its way to showrooms as of November.

Even better, the GTS and GTS4 will slot into the 991 line-up between the GT3 and the Carrera S – and this time not as runout specials like the 997, but as core parts of the 911 model range.

Headline news, of course, is Zuffenhausen’s decision to offer a manual gearbox as standard specification. After the 991 Turbo, Turbo S and GT3 were all released last year with PDK-only transmission (much to the disbelief of purists).

The seven-speed manual here will no doubt add extra appeal to those with a traditionalist disposition. Other big news comes from the 991 Carrera GTS’s power, which is supplied by a 3.8-litre DFI engine with Powerkit as standard.

Five reasons the new Porsche 911 GTS will be a roaring success

We’d forgotten just what it feels like to announce a new 911 model to the world, it’s been that long, but the elephant left the room yesterday when we broke the news to you that the Porsche 911 GTS will land in showrooms as of November. What’s more, the wait has been well worth it – the 991 GTS is an absolute cracker, and we’re adamant it’s going to prove a popular Porsche 911 model. Here’s our five reasons why:

1. It’s a manual
It sounds silly to celebrate such a basic (some might say timeless) specification on the new GTS, but it’s for good reason: after last year’s 991 Turbo, Turbo S and GT3 models were all offered with mandatory semi-automatic PDK, many thought the gearbox with a stick shift was dead. This upset purists. However, the 2015 GTS has revived the fire for the manual transmission, offering it in seven-speed form, with PDK an optional extra. This will make purists happy, both now and in the future when stick shift becomes less and less common.

2. It comes with a Powerkit as standard
Despite the word ‘Carrera’ conjuring up a rich stream of heritage for those of us with a penchant for Porsche nostalgia, these days the term is reserved for the bottom-spec 911. However, before you dismiss the new 911 Carrera GTS, remember this is the fastest Carrera you can buy, with an additional 30hp coming courtesy of a Powerkit as standard equipment. The 430hp on offer helps to bridge the gap admirably between a Carrera S and a GT3, keenly felt with the extra kick of low-down torque available here.

3. It has centre-lock wheels
Simply put: name a single sportscar with centre-lock wheels that you think ill of. Exactly.

4. It has a favourable price
£91,098 for a new 911 GTS is superb value for money. If you take a 991 Carrera S and add just the Powerkit option, you’ve already usurped the price of a 991 C2 GTS and you’ve not got half the exclusivity of the latter. What’s more, the GTS is a healthy ten grand shy of a base GT3 and you get to keep those rear seats in the back, too.

5. The 997 GTS is already revered
Complete with hydraulically-assisted power steering, a shorter wheelbase and less driver aids than the 991, the 997 GTS is seen by many as the last true ‘pure’ 911 off the Zuffenhausen production line, and values of used examples have still been holding well both at OPCs and via independent specialists as a result. Going forward, rear-axle steering could potentially be rolled out to all 911s, and there’s even small rumours of all future models becoming turbocharged, which makes this GTS with fixed rear axle and a gloriously naturally aspirated engine a surefire winner among traditionalists.
