Introduction (From Total 911 Magazine, Issue 202)
The GTS arrived a year and a half after the Launch of the 991.2 and once again it used the same format, this being a widebody 911 offered as a two or four-wheel drive Coupé or Cabriolet and as an all-wheel-drive Targa. There was some speculation it might be fitted with a detuned version of the naturally aspirated 4.0-litre of the GT3, but this was to misunderstand the object of the GTS, which was to amplify the dynamic aspects of the Carrera rather than offer a ‘softened’ GT3.
As it was, the GTS took the Carrera S engine together with the Powerkit (in this instance, bigger turbochargers and boost pressure raised from 16 to 18psi) which gave the GTS a 30bhp and 50Nm advantage over the S. The seven-speed manual gearbox was standard and PDK a frequently specified option. Externally the GTS was distinguished by its handsome centrelock wheels (which also reduced unsprung weight) and by its Sport exhaust, whose twin outlets were placed centrally about 20cm apart.
At the front, a more aggressive treatment of the nose was a sign that this was a special 911. PASM, Sport Chrono and active engine mounts were standard and the car sat 10mm lower than the S. If the Sport chassis option was selected, the GTS sat on shortened springs a further 10mm lower; rear-wheel steering and PDCC could also be ordered, as could the (arguably more useful) front axle lift. In a cabin generously accoutered with Alcantara were Porsche’s Sport Plus seats and the GT Sport steering wheel; rear seat delete was a no-cost option.
A nicely specified and well presented 2nd Generation 991 GTS.
Equipped with many additional features over its Carrera S sibling, this example has been further enhanced with numerous cost options from the factory when new, the Electric Glass Sunroof being a particularly sought after addition to the generous standard specification.
Recently serviced, with a Full Main Dealer History and fresh rear tyres, this example it ready to be enjoyed.
