Porsche 911 GTS spied in Germany, to be the fifth addition to Porsche’s GTS lineup

Porsche is continuing its expansion of the GTS model range with the 911. Following the launch of the Cayman and Boxster GTS, the 911 GTS has been spied testing in Germany, which is likely to fill the power gap between the 4S and Turbo models in its respective lineup.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen the 911 GTS but these clearer images give a better insight into what visual changes will be made. Like other GTS models, there are minor tweaks to the front bumper and headlight design, as well as a new set of darkened alloy wheels being fitted.

Bigger changes continue around the back, with an updated rear bumper incorporating a new central exhaust system – similar to the setup on the performance-focused GT3.

If the 911 GTS is to plug the gap between the 4S and the Turbo, power is expected to increase to around 450bhp from the 3.8-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine. As with all GTS models, a raft of kit will be fitted to the 911 variant as standard, including Porsche’s Sport Chrono Package and PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management).

News of a launch date and possible price for the 911 GTS are being kept firmly under wraps for now, but an official reveal in the second half of the year isn’t out of the question.
