The 2014 Porsche 911 GTS breaks cover prior to its public debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
Porsche are saying the GTS is in fact new, in reality its yet another faster derivative of the 911 lineage. Like the GTS before it the new model will be available in coupe and cabriolet form factors and either in four wheel drive or classic Porsche rear wheel drive.
Porsche have updated the 3.8-litre flat six engine by 30bhp to a new standard of 424bhp, all this power is accessed through a standard seven speed manual or twin clutch gearbox. Top speed is rated at between 186mph and 190mph depending on which gearbox you opt for, the GTS coupe can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.0s when fitted with the twin clutch (PDK) gearbox.
The ride height has been lowered by 10mm and Porsche have fitted the Chrono Package and the PASM system, Porsche Active Suspension Management, to ensure you can apex that corner without out fuss.
If you are having trouble telling the difference between the Porsche 911 GTS and the standard 911 Carrera then don’t worry so are we. There are, at present, 20 different 911 model variants on sale, the 911 GTS has unique bumpers that set it apart from the rest. Its like trying to tell whether a dog is laughing, but the 911 GTS is no dog, its a thoroughbred.
The “new” 911 GTS is available to order now from UK dealerships with first deliveries expected in November. Prices start from £91k.
