Pasadena (USA), 17. November 2014 – From now on, there is also a GTS variant from the Porsche 991. If this was allowed to take the success of the process, justified since the appearance of the first generation in the 997 every fourth customer for the sports model and also with Boxster / Cayman and Cayenne enjoy the GTS models gross popularity.
It offers more hardcore than a Carrera S, but less than a GT3. To achieve this, he has various sports options, which is available for a surcharge for the Carrera S and packed in a wider hull. All GTS versions (there are four pieces; Coupe and convertible, each with tail or four-wheel drive) are obtained by 44 millimeters wider tail of the Carrera 4 models, a new front spoiler, side skirting panels and a lot of black like the darkened xenon headlights Or the 20-inch central locker from the Porsche Turbo. In the interior everything was overdrawn with Alcantara, which one can relate with it. On request, you can let the Ruckbank lose what 15 kilos saves weight. Also factory equipment is a sports exhaust system with flap control. The performance rises by 30 hp more, which we had now at 430 hp.
A certain dryness in the suspension
The driving dynamics should first prove the GTS on very attractive mountain straps north of Pasadena / California towards Willow Springs Raceway and then on this small but fine and above all pretty fast racetrack at Rosamond (also California). More specifically, it is a GTS coupe with rear wheel drive and the PDK transmission suppliant also in the GTS. Like the Carrera S, my bright red coupe has the PASM chassis with adaptive steamers and ten millimeters lowering series-mabig. Just like the sports chrono package with Launch Control. In conjunction with the 20-inch dumps, this explains a certain dryness in the suspension. The acceleration aid, which theoretically bugs me in 4.0 seconds to 100 km / h, I save myself despite various ampular opportunities in Pasaden’s city center but first. In fact, California is not "Fast and Furious" but rather "At each corner a cop".
