A high specification example such as this is rarely available, and together with the wonderful Crayon Grey colour scheme, they combine to make this a very special GTS; the fastest model in the 911 Carrera range. With an uprated 450PS power from its 3-litre Turbo flat six engine, and peak torque of 406 lb ft, this is a serious sports car. 0-62 mph is achieved in just 3.6 seconds. Porsche posted an incredible lap time of 7min 26s at Nürburgring in the GTS.

Keeping the Porsche mantra of “Evolution, not revolution” alive, the 991 Series kept a close visual link to its 997 predecessors, but also moved the game forward a very long way. Designed by stylist Grant Larson, with a longer and wider track, the 991 brought elegance back to the 911 range. The longer wheelbase improved stability and the wider track meant that a slightly milder anti-roll bar could be employed at the front, reducing the tendency to understeer, an inherent 911 trait.

Clever use of aluminium panels, (the skin is 45 % aluminium and magnesium), enabled Porsche to reduce the weight of the Carrera from the 1,455kg of the 997 to 1,415kg for the equivalent 991 models, which is quite an achievement given that 58kg of additional ‘safety products’ had to be added to the new version. Also noticeable is the raised centre console housing the gearshift, a development first seen on the Carrera GT. The handbrake lever disappeared, replaced by an electric parking brake. The combination of more space and richer materials has elevated the 911’s cockpit to a distinctly ‘grand touring’ environment rather than that of a mere top-flight sports car. Supplied and maintained by Porsche Centre, Mayfair, with just one keeper, this car offers a real opportunity to purchase the best-equipped version of this sought after modern classic.
