Porsche Rounds Out Its 911 Range With A New 992-Gen GTS Model Offering 473HP

Jun 23, 2021

For all but the most dedicated of Porsche devotees, the 911 lineup is a minefield of ambiguous three-letter qualifiers and confusing model hierarchies. Where’s a Turbo fall with respect to a Carrera? What’s the difference between a GT3 and a 4S? If you find yourself asking such questions, don’t fret — just trust us when we say that another GTS is big news indeed.

That’s because the middling 911 spec has served as one of Porsche’s best value propositions ever since its introduction some 12 years ago, and it looks to be no different for 2022. Powered by a twin-turbo 3.0L flat-six, it’s good 473hp and 420lb-ft of torque, enough to take it from 0-60mph in just 3.1s when equipped with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. The GTS also gets the pick of the lot from the Porsche parts bin, offering standard features like sports exhaust, model-specific suspension, as well as brakes and wheels borrowed from the Turbo and Turbo S. Available in coupe or convertible, all-wheel or rear-wheel drive (and even a Targa to boot), it comes finished with blacked-out badging and satin or gloss trim on the spoiler, engine cover, and lighting. It’s available now starting at $136,700.

Purchase: $136,700+
