The new 911 GTS has gone through an extensive upgrade, making it faster and more powerful than the outgoing model. It gets a 3-litre flat-six engine producing a mammoth 473bhp and 570Nm of torque, which is 29bhp more than the outgoing 911 GTS and the current-generation Carrera S. Porsche also offers the new 911 GTS with either a eight-speed dual clutch automatic or a seven-speed manual transmission, with the option of a ‘short throw lever’ available as well. The 911 GTS Carrera 4 Coupe in particular, will reach the triple-digit mark in a lightning quick 3.3 seconds when equipped with the PDK transmission! The new 911 GTS will be offered in five different variants; the 911 Carrera GTS Coupe/Cabriolet with RWD, the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe/Cabriolet with AWD, and lastly the 911 Targa 4 GTS exclusively with AWD.
