Special Report: Exploring Wales With A Porsche 911 GTS

The Alps – a mountain range that stretches 1,200 kilometers and eight alpine countries across Europe. Even the coldest and darkest of hearts feel inspired looking up through the cotton clouds at infamous peaks such as the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and Jungfrau. There are no mountains without earthquakes and there are no mountains without mountain […]

2017 Porsche 991 GTS first drive review

Now in its third incarnation on a 911, the GTS range is firmly established as a highly specified badge above the Carrera S models. And it is a range, for all the engineer’s talk of there only being one true GTS (a manual, rear-wheel drive coupe) the marketing suits have won. Their persistence has been worthwhile, too, as with the 991.2 GTS, the adoption of the Carrera line-up’s 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six sees the issues of the old GTS Cabriolet and Targa models addressed.

Chiefly, the now 450hp engine – up 30hp over a Carrera S via new turbos and higher boost pressure – has the torque to shift the heavier, open-topped cars more convincingly. They might not be entirely true to the badge’s bridge to the GT department’s model ethos, then, but they’re no longer an affront to it.

At its core, and we’re talking that Carrera GTS Coupe manual that the engineers have said from the very first 997 GTS is the car that’s the GTS proper, the GTS remains a hugely appealing 911. It offers the unique combination of the Carrera 4’s widebody and rear-wheel drive, the Coupes gaining not just the 10mm suspension drop via standard fitment of PASM but a further 10mm lowering thanks to the specification of the Sport.

The increase in power is welcome, its 450hp being the same as a 997 GT3 RS, the changes to the engine making it keener for revs, at the expense of a little bit of low rev torque. That’s no sacrifice, and entirely in keeping with the GTS’s core values, that being of a more focussed driver’s car, without going to quite the extremes of the GT3. That said, Porsche is quoting a Nürburgring lap time of 7 minutes 22 seconds with its new Ultra High Performance, road legal tyre, that time just two seconds shy of what was possible in a 997 GT2.

That’s rapid Progress. Looking at all the other numbers associated with it, the GTS moves the 911 game on significantly. Whisper it, but in perfect specification it’ll keep a 911 R very honest indeed, and engage almost as much. In Carrera 4 guise it’s a worthy understudy to the Turbo, the GTS very much a sweet-spot in the Carrera range.

With those Coupes there’s the weight-saving option to delete the rear seats, the usual GTS extras of centre-lock Turbo wheels, black detailing, unique bodykit, a sports exhaust, standard Sport Chrono with Dynamic Engine Mounts, a limited slip differential with Porsche Torque Vectoring, larger brakes situated on new, lighter aluminium carriers create a cherry-picked specification that creates a brilliant Carrera. We’ve driven it, in 2, 4, Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa, which you can read about in-depth in the special 150th issue of Total 911 magazine, out 22nd February. We doubt you’ll be surprised to hear it’s a brilliant car, the GTS now maturing into a desirable range, even if it’s at its very best when at its purest.

Porsche 911 GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition: You Want One, Probably Can’t Have One

2016 Porsche 911 GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition

Leave it to Porsche, in the 2016 911’s twilight, to release a special-edition version just before we’re treated to the turbo-y goodness of the 2017 911 Carrera and Carrera S. The automaker long known for stretching the 911 lineup as far as it could is debuting the 2016 911 GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition at, you guessed it, this year’s Rennsport Reunion, a gathering of the brand faithful and classic Porsche race cars at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

Based on the outgoing 911 GTS, the Rennsport Reunion Edition boasts a 430-hp naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six engine and is available exclusively with a manual transmission. We like it based on that fact alone. But it gets better—Porsche tosses in 18-way power sports seats, the PASM adaptive suspension, a Bose audio system, rear parking sensors, carbon-fiber dashboard trim, 20-inch sport classic wheels, adaptive headlights (PDLS, or Porsche Dynamic Light System), and a host of sweet decals for the hood, doors, roof, and decklid.

Owners willing to pony up the $149,330 for the special-edition GTS will be further rewarded with a key fob painted the same Fashion Gray as the car, plus a special leather case for the key with “911 Carrera GTS Rennsport Reunion Edition” lettering. Just 25 of the tricked-out GTSs will be built, all of them for North America.
