Video: Porsche 911 GTS


Porsche's new 911 GTS, launched before the public at the Paris motor show last week, has got to be as exciting a 911 as you can get without going down the turbo or GT3 route.

It's got the wide body from the Carrera 4S, but with two-wheel drive, and 402bhp from the 3.8-litre flat six. You also get natty little extras such as 19-inch centre-lock wheels, a sports exhaust and a plethora of design tweaks.

But actions speak louder than words, so here's 3m 26s of action. With some words.

    Is it just my eyesight or do the widebody 997's not look much wider than the normal 997's, where as the widebody 996 was quite obviously wider than the normal 996?
    The haunches over the rear wheels just doesn't look as pronounced on the 997 model. It may just be an optical illusion, but I would be interested in what others think.

    Very cool, but only the hard-top version. Convertible 911s always remind me of a roll-top bath.

    agreed, i genuinely can't tell the difference between this and a normal C4S other than the wheels are a different colour and it has a sticker on it saying carrera GTS.

    looks good, but i fail to see the differences to mark it as a new model tbh.
