The GTS model is so ubiquitous throughout the Porsche range that it is hard to believe that the first 911 Carrera GTS only debuted 12 years ago.

On Tuesday, Porsche unveiled the 992 generation 911, which will be available as a coupé and convertible body with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive and as a Targa body with all-wheel drive.

GTS models usually offer a little more of everything – performance, performance, and features – and mostly at a lower price than the separately available options. The 911 GTS 2022 is no exception.

On the performance front, the new GTS has a 473 hp version of the 3.0-liter Turbo 6 that powers other 911s. That’s 30 hp more than the S-model and 23 hp more than the 991.2-generation GTS, and the 420 lb-ft of torque equals 30 lb-ft and 15 lb-ft of shocks, respectively.

Equipped with the 8-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, the 911 GTS accelerates from standstill to 100 km / h in just 3.1 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds faster than the 991.2 911 GTS. The engine also makes more sound thanks to a standard sports exhaust system with specific tuning and less sound-absorbing material.

The GTS Coupé and Cabriolet models receive a modified version of the chassis from the 911 Turbo. It comes with adaptive dampers, lowers the car by 0.4 inches, and has rear auxiliary springs, which Porsche says will maintain the tension of the main springs to keep rebound characteristics constant. The 911 GTS Targa uses the standard chassis of the Targa. Porsche makes rear-axle steering as standard and provides all 911 GTS models with aerodynamic underbody cladding.

The brakes are also from the 911 Turbo; all GTS models are equipped with central locking light alloy wheels in the design of the 911 Turbo S.

Buyers can also opt for a Lightweight Package for the first time, which will save the car by 55 pounds by removing the back seat and installing carbon fiber bucket seats, lightweight glass for the side and rear windows, and a light battery.

In addition to the GTS badges, Porsche gives the 911 GTS models some external information. The front spoiler, wheels, grille and GTS logos are all matte black, and the Targa bar on Targa models is black. Headlight covers, daytime running light surrounds and rear lights are darkened, the covers for the front, rear and side skirts come from the SportDesign package.

Inside, the 911 GTS has a GT sports steering wheel, the Sport Chrono Package with steering wheel mode switch and synthetic suede on the steering wheel, seat center panels, gear lever, door handles, armrests and center console cover.

The 911 GTS will be one of the first Porsches to receive the next generation of the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system. It has bigger icons on the touchscreen and the home screen can now be personalized. Improved speech recognition responds to the words “Hey Porsche,” and Android Auto compatibility is added, as is wireless Apple CarPlay.

The 2022 Porsche 911 GTS will go on sale in early 2022 at a starting price of 137,050 US dollars for a 911 Carrera GTS. The 911 Carrera 4 GTS is priced at $ 145,350, the 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet is priced at $ 150,850, and both the 911 Carrera GTS 4 Cabriolet and 911 Targa 4 GTS are priced at $ 158,150.
