The GTS is here, surely this is not the end of 991 generation already !

Could this 991 Generation GTS be a bit more than just a Carrera S with all of the options ticked ?

and it's got the rear styling from last years 911-50 Anniversary edition...


Open Youtube Page


Quote:
Here’s the new-for-2015, brawnier Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, unveiled in four different guises for the latest 991 family. All sport the Carrera 4S’s wide-hipped bodyshell for a more aggressive stance and extra power to justify prices nudging into six-figure territory.

Porsche’s GTS badge stands for Gran Turismo Sport and has come to denote some of our favourite models in Stuttgart’s line-up in recent years. Traditionally, the 911s, Boxsters and Caymans to emerge with GTS badges come with extra kit and laser focus with only a modest price rise compared with the totted-up cost of extras on the options list.


So what do you get on the new Porsche 911 GTS?

Four models will be available: a 911 coupe or cabriolet, both offered in Carrera 2 or Carrera 4 guises. All are more powerful than the Carrera S models beneath, sporting an extra 30bhp and the compulsory-for-show-offs Porsche sports exhaust.

The flat-six boxer engine has been tuned to deliver a total of 424bhp, giving useful extra performance; Porsche quotes 0-62mph in 4.0sec flat for the coupe (add two-tenths for the cabrio). On paper, it makes the GTS 911s a real stepping stone between regular models and the more hardcore GT3s.

Choose between a seven-speed manual or Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch gearbox, the latter enabling a 32mpg combined fuel economy figure, claims Porsche.

What else is new on the 991 GTS?

Sticking to a tried-and-tested formula, Porsche has been through the options list and ticked loads of the most desirable options for the new GTS.

You get the Sport Chrono pack, 20-in centre-lock, black alloys, dynamic engine mounts and the PASM adaptive dampers, lowering the ride height by 10mm. Useful, when the rear-drive manual GTS has a top speed of 198mph…

Other extras thrown in to give the GTS some added sparkle include alcantara trim, leather seats, bi-xenon lamps, sat-nav, limited slip diff and Porsche Torque Vectoring.

Prices, specs for 2015 Porsche GTS models

The new Porsche 911 arrives in UK showrooms in November 2014, priced from £91,098 for a 911 Carrera GTS Coupe and £99,602 for the Cabriolet.

Add £4700 for four-wheel drive in either coupe or soft-top 911 GTS.

Porsche Press Release

Porsche is sending its second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS to the starting line. Four models – a coupe and a cabriolet, each with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive – now close the gap between the 911 Carrera S and the 911 GT3.

Some of the technical ingredients that generate even more dynamic performance and driving fun: 430 hp power, the Sport Chrono package and the PASM active damper system which lowers the car's ride height by ten millimetres. Improved efficiency has also led to quicker accelerations and higher top speeds, but combined fuel consumption figures remain unchanged at the favourable level of the S models.

When combined with the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the 911 Carrera GTS sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.2 seconds). The top speed of each GTS model is beyond the 300 km/h barrier; the fastest at 306 km/h is the Coupe with a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive.

When adjusted for their additional features, the new top models are attractive in price as well. A number of options are included as standard, such as bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and the sport exhaust system for unmistakable GTS sound. The driver and front passenger also sit in an exclusive Alcantara interior with leather-trimmed sport seats whose centre panels are made of Alcantara as on the other GTS models by Porsche.

Matt black 20-inch wheels are standard

The exteriors of the new 911 cars – like all GTS models by Porsche – differ significantly from the other Carrera models. All models have the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared rear wheel arches and a wide track. Also standard are 20-inch wheels with centre wheel locks, which are painted in an exclusive matt black. Accentuating the front end are special trim elements and smoked bi-xenon headlights. Black trim strips on the customised GTS air intake screen and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes characterise the rear of the GTS.

With the addition of these new top models, the 911 Carrera range now consists of twelve sports cars at three power levels, as coupes and cabriolets, and with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive systems. The 911 Carrera GTS and 911 Carrera 4 GTS will be offered in Germany at prices starting at 117,549 euros, including country-specific features and 19 per cent VAT. In Germany, the four models will be available at dealers starting in November 2014.

Looks brilliant! Add an Aero Cup kit and you've got a pseudo GT3! However, then they would be very close in terms of pricing.

It's more of a Step between the Carrera 4S and the 911 Turbo rather than to the GT3.

....Unlike the new Caymen and Boxster I still think the 991 is badly styled(hence they may be chopping it soon).....as they usually do when the GTS/Specials arrive.

It's rump looks more like a dogs dinner vs sirlion

The 997 GTS came out in 2010 and they didn't change to the 991 for two more years. We haven't even had the GT3RS or GT2 yet? I know Porsche have said they might not build a GT2 but I find it hard to believe.

I can't agree. I loved the shape of the 991 straight away whilst the 996 and the 997 each took a few years to grow on me. The only issue for me with the 991 is that it's just that tiny bit too big.

Like all 991s though ........ they make a 2/3 year old equivalent 997 look very good value for money. nooo

As the Boxster and Cayman are already available in GTS variant it looks more likely that the 911 is just following suit.

997 Carrera GTS was announced on Sept 2010
997 Carrera 4 GTS was announced on May 2011
991 Carrera was announced in Aug 2011

but as you've said the GT3 RS is due at next Months L.A. (USA) Motor Show

and the GT2 after that, having said that both will be small volume production

and then after that there will be a limited edition GT3 RS with a special sequential shift (that's enough as I've said too much!)

The 991 GTS coupe is probably the best all in one do it all vehicle you can get, just like the 997 GTS was before it

I'd have one Cool

2003 Porsche 996 Turbo

PostPosted: Wed Oct 08, 2014 7:40 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

It does look butch, nicer proportions than the regular 991 to my eyes. However, having had a good look at a Turbo S at the weekend, the car is just too big. It makes my 996 turbo look like a toy!

Red does seem to suit the 991 body shell though (IMO).

Rather ironic isn't it. The 911 made its name as the practical compact sports car and now it is essentially as wide as an S Class Merc. In fairness it isn't as if much fits in a standard sized garage these days, but even so...

A lot was made of the "bloated" dimensions of the 991 when it was launched. Looking at the actual dimensions tells a rather different story. Compared to its 997 predecessor the standard Carrera 991 is the same width (1808mm), lower (1303mm vs 1310mm) but slightly longer (4491mm vs 4435mm). Crucially though the 991 is 45kg lighter (PDK). There is a significant increase in performance over the 997 and lower fuel consumption.

In the real world though, the really important measurement is that it fits in my small garage (I have to fold the driver's mirror in when going in or out in my 997).
As much as I love the old models (air cooled) and appreciate their place and importance in the history of the 911, I find them just too small (for me). And the rear end of the 991 gives it a coherence that I find the 997 (just) lacks - but clearly that's just a personal opinion.

Back on subject, the GTS will be a corker!

Loving the new car. Thumb

A shrewd move by Porsche by taking the winning formula of the 997 GTS and applying it to the 991 by ticking as many option boxes as possible and making them standard features on the GTS.

The 997 GTS was a very good value run out model.... something tells me this just fills a gap between Carrera S and Turbo. Can't believe a standard GTS 4 is more than a GT3!!!

Personally I like it though, especially the Carrera 3.2 style rear grill on the engine cover. Having said that I would have been annoyed if I'd have bought a 50th Anniversary "limited edition" model, only to see this thing launched that looks pretty similar!

Me too,

Having learned my lesson buying new cars previously ....

I'll have mine in red with 5-10k miles on it and at a substantial discount in 18 months time after the first cars come back to ' previously enjoyed' hand market.....

I suspect that they have released a GTS version now because the non-turbo cars (apart from the GT3?) are for the chop soon:
