Tucked away in a lab are Porsche scientists capable of splitting hairs beyond a nanometer. Or so we think. How else could a team develop so many variants of a single car? If the 911 Carrera S isn’t enough but the GT3 is out of reach, split the difference with the new 911 Carrera GTS.
The $138,050 Porsche Carrera GTS follows the usual formula: Standard equipment includes the sporty options on the Carrera S, such as a 0.4-inch-lower sport suspension, a louder exhaust, and the Sport Chrono package’s dynamic engine mounts, Sport Plus mode, and launch control. To separate itself from the lesser model, the GTS also receives helper springs on the rear axle, the Turbo’s brake system, and the Turbo S’s center-lock wheels.
The twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six is tuned up with more boost to produce 473 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, 30 more of each than the Carrera S offers. Though an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic is standard, a seven-speed manual is a no-cost option. Here in the GTS it’s treated to a shift lever that’s 0.4 inch shorter than the one in the Carrera S.
The automatic’s brilliant launch programming is entertaining yet so easy, even Ralph Nader could rip consistent sub-three-second 60-mph sprints. But there’s a certain gratification in executing the perfect hole shot with a DIY gearbox.
Adding to the overall appearance and performance of this Silver 992 GTS, the team over at AntelopeBan fit a set of 20×9.5 | 21×12 Brixton Forged TR20 finished in Firecracker Black with a satin clear topcoat.
