Porsche is adding the GTS model to the 992-generation 911’s lineup, and they have 30 more horsepower than the Carrera S models along with other performance upgrades. They’ll arrive in the U.S. early next year in rear- and all-wheel-drive coupe and convertible models along with an all-wheel-drive Targa variant.
The GTS model’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six produces 473 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, increases of 30 horsepower and 30 pound-feet over the Carrera S. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is standard, and a seven-speed manual with a 0.4-inch-shorter shift lever is optional. Porsche claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 3.1 seconds from the automatic-equipped Carrera 4 GTS, though, in our test of the Carrera 4S, we reached that mark in 2.8 seconds. Porsche’s sport exhaust system is standard on the GTS models.
Porsche’s adaptive dampers and Sport suspension’s 0.4-inch-lower ride height come standard and are specifically tuned for the GTS. The stopping power comes from 16.1-inch front and 15.0-inch rear iron rotors from the 911 Turbo and pair with black center-lock wheels derived from the Turbo S and sized 20 inches up front and 21 inches rear. An available lightweight package with carbon-fiber seats and lighter glass sheds 55 pounds, and it removes the rear seats and adds rear-axle steering.
Like previous-generation GTS models, the new cars feature additional black trim inside and out. Their spoiler lip, rear grille, and GTS badging are all blacked out, and the Targa bar is black on the open-roof model. Porsche’s dynamic LED headlights with darkened surrounds are standard and the rear lights are also darker. Inside, a GT sport steering wheel and four-way adjustable sport seats are standard, and the interior is trimmed in Porsche’s suedelike Race-Tex material and carbon fiber.
The 2022 Porsche 911 GTS models are available to order now starting at $138,050 for the Carrera GTS, $150,850 for the Carrera GTS cabriolet, $145,350 for the Carrera 4 GTS, and the Carrera 4 GTS cabriolet and Targa 4 GTS both start at $158,150.
