Porsche 911 To Get GTS Version In November
|   Tuesday, September 02, 2014
Porsche will launch a GTS version of the 911 at the Auto Show in Los Angeles. It will be framed between the Carrera S and GT3 and is rated at over 400 hp.

The Porsche 911 GTS will debut at the Auto Show in Los Angeles, according to Jonny Lieberman an American journalist from the Motor Trend magazine. Lieberman did not disclose the sources which provided this information, and the details revealed by the representative of the prestigious American publications were few.


From Lieberman's announcement, the chassis code of the future GTS 911 will be 992 instead of 991, as all versions of 911. This information suggests the possibility of further changes applied to the famous German model, although we are only talking about speculations at present.

Chassis code 992 is possible to be the new name Porsche for facelift 911 range. In the tradition of Porsche, the 911 facelift range would use the "991.2" name, so perhaps this could explain the 992 code mentioned on Twitter by the American journalist.

California, as it happened, is one of the most popular places in the world for Porsche sales. As a consequence, it has become a bit of a tradition for the German sports car manufacturer to use the state's annual car show to reveal something new.

This year's event at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which begins on November 20, will be one of the largest in history with at least 25 world premieres scheduled to take place, among them the 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS.

The GTS version of the 911 will be offered in both coupe and cabriolet versions, with all versions being equipped with all-wheel drive. With regards for motorization, the famous propeller with six cylinders from Porsche is expected to deliver over 400 hp, a level already reached by the Carrera S, but less than the 475 hp provided by the GT3 version.

The new 911versions will also see some aesthetic changes, based on a set of subtly modified bumpers plus a set of specially designed alloy wheels, together with several logos and ornaments to emphasize the car's special character.

Previous versions Porsche 911 GTS had as standard equipment a six-speed manual transmission that delivered power to the rear wheels, with the PDK unit with seven-speeds being optional. The new GTS version is expected to turn to all-wheel drive and the manual transmission will have seven gears, not six. Porsche is the first car manufacturer that left behind the six steps that we are used to seeing in other models on the market.

GTS Porsche models are designed for buyers who seek a sportier model than the conventional S models, but are not looking for something as hardcore as a GT3 or Turbo.

Also, previous 911 Carrera GTS generations came with more power than the Carrera S as well as improved aerodynamics, so we can expect the new model to offer similar upgrades and more.
