Because this GTS is equipped with the optioned Sport Chrono Package Plus and the “rapid-fire-gear-changes-without-zero-power-interruption” PDK transmission, it not only allows for a reduction in the time that it takes to go from 0-60 (the coupling of the duo allows for a time of approximately 4.2 seconds) but the intensification of one’s heart-rate increases exponentially as you’re granted the Sport Plus button. When pressed, euphoric motorsport-channeled characteristics never felt so tangible as it allows for racetrack-enhanced traits such as Launch Control to be made available while the PDK system experiences immensely decreased shift times and favorable shift points for peak acceleration.

A Few Notable Characteristics (and Numbers) Regarding The 997 GTS: Made available for the 2011 and 2012 model years, it’s reported that 6,747 examples are said to have been produced with approximately 2,656 of those units having been designated as GTS coupes with a rear-wheel-drive configuration. The GTS is the only wide-body, rear-wheel-drive Non-GT 911 that is the last of the right-sized, classic-svelte-911-shaped, and naturally-aspirated 997 911 Carreras. Positioned in-between the GT3 and the S models, the GTS variant is the absolute pinnacle in the 911 Carrera range! Its standard features include (but are not limited to) a wider rear track; Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM); a variable resonance intake system (mid-rev range torque adder); Integrated dry-sump lubrication; and a Sports exhaust system.

Upon viewing this GTS Coupe, your presence is welcomed by its stupefyingly attractive “white-out” aesthetic, consisting of a silky Carrara White finish with matching 19-inch RS Spyder center-lock wheels (showcased in front of red brake calipers with white ‘Porsche’ script); the protruding wide rear width; a SportDesign front bumper with lower-trim area in black (the hue continues onto the side skirts, exhaust’s rear trim panel, and the side areas of the rear bumper); ‘Carrera GTS’ door located insignia in black; clear stone guards; an automatically deploying spoiler; quad-dual tailpipes with a bright-finish.
Just as you enter the Black Leather cabin, you’re first met by aluminum door sills with ‘Carrera GTS’ insignia in black and when inside, Alcantara (such as on the seats and the handles along with compartment lid regions of each door), light-colored twin-stitching, and aluminum/brushed aluminum/metallic-coated surfacing, can be found on select areas. The driver is faced with a 3-spoke SportDesign steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara; black instrumentation dials; a centrally located dash-mounted SportChrono dial in black; 6.5-inch touchscreen navigation display; the winsome PDK shifter. Front occupants are embraced by Adaptive Sport seats featuring memory settings for the driver, heating functionality for both occupants, and backrest shells donned in a brush-metallic finish and can expect in-cabin audio playback via the optioned BOSE Surround Sound System, featuring 13-speakers.
Performance: Powering the GTS is a rear-mounted and naturally-aspirated, 3.8L DFI flat-six engine, delivering a delightful 408hp and 310 lb-ft of torque (performance times of 0-60 in an estimated 4.2 seconds, with a top speed of 190 mph) while having the power sent to the rear wheels.
