Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet
Like before, the GTS family is positioned above the S and below the 911 GT3 and 911 Turbo. This very subtle segmentation with 19 different variants gives the potential Porsche 911 Carrera buyer no shortage of choices. You want a 911 Carrera? Great! But which one? As you’d expect, the GTS models have the body of the Carrera 4 and 4S, which is why they are wider than the regular Carrera and Carrera S. Moreover, the GTS has a more classic look, featuring 20-inch black alloy rims with centre caps as well as darkened taillights. The all-wheel-drive versions can be distinguished from the rear-wheel drivers by the number 4 on the rear shield or by the colour of the strip that connects the lights—dark for RWD, light for AWD. The 3.0-litre flat-six engine gets bigger turbochargers, with increased pressure that helps the GTS generate 450 horsepower—30 more horsepower than the current Carrera S.
On all GTS versions, the cabin stands out with the standard Sport Chrono Package and the new Porsche Track Precision application. This app captures data on your smartphone and provides a detailed analysis of your track performance. It displays videos of completed laps and data readings for braking, lateral acceleration in turns and reacceleration when coming out of a turn. Standard GTS logo-adorned sport seats headline this passenger cabin, which also features leather and Alcantara covering for the sport steering wheel, shift knob and armrests.
Braking proved intense with massive deceleration courtesy of the GTS’s brakes, which are oversized compared to those of the 911 Carrera S. The rims and tires are a half-inch wider, and you really sense the car gripping with more gusto in corners. As always, the PDK gearbox is a model of efficiency, both in downshifting as well as when reaccelerating. I also did a few laps with a 2018 Porsche 911 GTS equipped with the fabulous manual gearbox and its ultra-precise shifter, but the lap times were slightly slower than those with the twin-clutch gearbox. The car is more fun to drive with the manual transmission, but faster with the PDK. Ultimately, it’s a question of priorities. I’d be remiss not to mention the remarkable sound of the GTS with sport exhaust. It seems noticeably more aggressive than the regular 911 Carrera’s sound. Sure, it doesn’t rev as freely as the previous version’s old naturally-aspirated flat-six, but at least the GTS has a certain liveliness about it that will make you forget that it has moved into the turbo era.
