The GTS model was equipped with PASM and the sports chassis, meaning it rides 20mm lower than a 991 Carrera. The 20-inch centre-lock wheels from the Turbo S were also fitted as standard, along with the Sport Chrono package, incorporating dynamic engine mounts and a switchable sports exhaust system. The performance is remarkable, with the GTS capable of sprinting from 0 to 60mph in less than 3.8 seconds.
First registered on 21 March 2018, the car was specified in GT Silver with a striking red fabric soft top, with the colour carried through the cabin with the GTS interior package of Carmine Red stitching and seat belts, and a red rev counter. There are two previous keepers on the log book, and the current owner acquired it around one year ago, covering 2,800 miles since then.
The wide bodywork is in superb order, with the only panel imperfection being a minor indentation on the driver’s side front bumper. The GT Silver paint is smooth and even, with the only signs of road use being just a few small stone chips on the bumper and bonnet. Its red Cabriolet hood is completely unmarked, with no signs of damage or staining. The 20-inch alloys are finished in satin black and are in superb condition, with only a minor nick on the offside rear wheel.
The interior is clad in a mixture of black leather and Alcantara, with the synthetic suede covering the seat centres, inner door cards, lower dashboard, factory-fit GT sport steering wheel and the PDK gear selector. This is accompanied by smooth black leather, which covers the upper dashboard, door caps and seat bolsters, and carbon-fibre inlay strips across the dashboard and door panels, and around the centre console.
All of the upholstery is in excellent condition, with the seller noting only a small mark on the front passenger seat bolster, and another on the side of the centre console. Factory-fitted equipment includes sport seats with full electric adjustment and three-stage heating, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and a reversing camera.
Its last scheduled service was due in April 2020, however due to recent restrictions and temporary workshop closures this has not yet been possible. The first annual MOT test is not due until 20 March 2021. All four wheels are fitted with Pirelli P Zero tyres, measuring 245/35 ZR20 at the front and 305/30 ZR20 at the rear, which have more than 4mm of tread remaining.
Accompanying the car are all of its original accessories, including document wallet, driver’s manual, service record, and other sales literature. The original tools, safety equipment, and keys are also present.
This Porsche 991 Carrera GTS Cabriolet is an exciting and engaging open-top sports car, which benefits from a very smart factory specification, and which is presented in excellent condition throughout. The GTS boasts a compelling blend of eye-opening performance and everyday usability, and this example is sure to delight its next owner.
