Porsche 911 Carrera GTS: Driving report

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

Interesting driving report here with the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS. Enjoy!

We’ll be danged and damned, too, but the GTS does exactly split the difference most convincingly between the everyday 2S and the not-everyday GT3. It feels noticeably more aggressive and at-the-ready than the Everyman 2S, but it stops short of rattling free your older fillings as the GT3 might do. It takes the drive-all-day Porsche 911 dream right to its limit if that is what you seek.

This is Porsche playing around with a very advanced fantasy configurator as we arrive at the end of the 997 generation’s life cycle. Because the GTS is an amped-up 911 Carrera 2S that comes with the 3.7-inch wider Turbo body look of a GT3 (or 4S) in the rear quarters, it can come with the aforementioned PDK which is not available on the purist GT3. And the GTS is now the only standard-range 911 with this junk-in-the-trunk tail end while remaining rear-wheel-drive.
