The Porsche 911 (997) Carrera GTS, has the potential to be the best all-round 911 yet. An engine upgrade to the GTS boosted the power and torque, and it uses the more seductive wide body from the four-wheel drive models. A special intake manifold, with six rather than one single flap, switches between power and torque-optimised maps. Thus, the output of the 3.8-litre flat six is raised from 380 BHP at 6500 rpm to 408 HP at 7300rpm, and although the torque figure remains at 311 lb/ft, it is produced at 200 rpm lower.
The Porsche 997 GTS blends the very best of the sports models in the Carrera range with the equipment level of the luxury derivatives. The GTS combines the high performance of the racetrack-inspired models with an everyday sportiness. With more power, and solid road holding, the GTS provides the best combination of power and handling.
The 997 GTS models are certainly increasing in desirability, as their reputation for being amongst the best modern Porsches grows. Supplied new by Porsche Centre Exeter in March 2011, it has a full Porsche service history (5 stamps), order form, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, handbook pack, spare remote key, and accompanying dealer invoices. This immaculate GTS is not one to be missed. It will also be supplied with a comprehensive 12-month written warranty.
