Porsche Updates 911 GTS Models with Turbo Power

That makes five separate configurations, and they're all available to order now and scheduled to arrive in Canada during the second quarter of 2017.

The RWD 911 Carrera GTS Coupé and Cabriolet; AWD 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé and Cabriolet and the AWD 911 Targa 4 GTS all get new turbochargers, boosting the 3.0-litre flat six's engine by 58kW, to 331kW.

More to the point, it also has a torque curve that looks like Table Mountain, with 550Nm on tap anywhere from 2150-5000rpm. All GTS versions are available with either a seven-speed manual or PDK double clutch transmission.

The new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS starts at $119,000 ($136,000 in Canada), while the 911 Targa 4 GTS carries an MSRP of $138,200 ($157,900 in Canada).

This is 15kW more than the previous naturally-aspirated GTS model and 22kW more than the 911 Carrera S. Porsche announced today that the new 911 GTS models will be turbocharged.

"Based on the Carrera 4/4S body, all GTS models visually stand out with a new Sport Design front end, increased rear spoiler extension height, tinted taillights, 20" wheels painted in satin black, and tailpipes in high-gloss black (part of the standard Sport Exhaust system). Should you wish to test the sporty credentials of your 911 GTS, a standard Porsche Track Precision app has been "further enhanced" for its installation, now boasting the capacity for automatic recording and analysis of driving data on your phone.

The latest model, 991.2 has a controversial turbocharged 3.0 litre straight six which consists of other variations which users can choose from: such as the Cabriolet or Coupe, a 2 or all-wheel drive auto or the Targa which is an AWD only. The rear-wheel drive coupe tops out at 193 miles per hour when fitted with a manual transmission.

Both Carrera GTS coupe models feature Porsche's adaptive sport suspension, dropping the overall ride height by nearly half an inch (10 millimeters), while the Carrera and Targa models get the non-sport version of the adaptive suspension.

On the eve of the Detroit Motor Show, Porsche unveiled five new variants of the Porsche 911. Inside, the seats receive GTS logos on the headrests and the steering wheel rim, armrests and centre console are all trimmed in Alcantara, while brushed black aluminium trim strips have been fitted to the instrument cluster.
