Is the new Porsche 911 GTS the sweet spot in the range? We find out…

The previous GTS version of Porsche’s iconic 911 was rated by many as the pick of the range. So the pressure’s on for this 992-generation edition to maintain the high standards.

Designed to slot in between the Carrera S and the Turbo, the GTS takes the first of those models’ 3.0-litre flat-six motor and boosts it by 22kW and 40Nm – taking its vital statistics to 353kW and 570Nm. By default the car comes with an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic, but you can spec it with a seven-speed manual at no extra cost.

Compared with the Carrera, the ride height on coupé and Cabriolet versions has been lowered by 10mm and you get stiffer springs, new shock absorbers and different anti-roll bars. The GTS also features helper springs on the rear axle, designed to keep the wheels in contact with the road on bumpy tarmac, and it features chunkier brakes from the Turbo.

The visual differences, inside and out, between this car and a regular Carrera are subtle, but enough to appeal to Porsche aficionados. So the real magic has to come from gains in performance and dynamics.
