All told, there are five versions and pricing breaks down as follows: $120,050 for the 911 Carrera GTS, $126,950 for the all-wheel-drive 911 Carrera 4 GTS, $132,350 for the 911 GTS cabriolet, $139,250 for the 911 Carrera 4 GTS cabriolet and $139,250 for the 911 Targa 4 GTS. All prices include a destination charge of $1,050.
The car is powered by a 450-horsepower, 3.0-liter six-cylinder. That’s up 20 hp from the previous, non-turbocharged GTS version. All GTS models come standard with a seven-speed manual transmission, and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is optional.
GTS coupe versions also get a lower suspension — by 0.39 inches — than the cabriolet and Targa versions and with rear-wheel drive and a manual transmission, it’s capable of a top speed of 193 mph.
While there are so many versions of 911 models that it can be hard to keep track of them all, GTS models have a new Sport Design front end with a black spoiler lip, rear spoiler, tinted lights, rear lid grille strips with a gloss-black finish as well as a new black trim strip between the taillights for the RWD models (AWD models get a light strip between the taillights.) There are also Sport Design exterior mirrors, 20-inch wheels and black GTS logos on the doors. Finally, Targa models get a black Targa bar with a satin finish.
Inside, the GTS features its own unique tweaks. The stopwatch that’s standard on the Sport Chrono Package is also standard here. There are also what Porsche calls Sport Seats Plus with GTS logos that also provide increased lateral support as standard. The brushed aluminum interior trim is anodized with a black finish. And, if that’s not enough, Porsche says the Connect Plus smartphone integration system that includes Apple CarPlay is standard.
The 2017 911 GTS models are expected to reach U.S. dealers in April, though Porsche says you can order one now. Just in case, you know, you have more than $100,000 burning a hole in your pocket.
