Many 911 enthusiasts compare the 991.1 GTS to the last of the 911 993s, particularly the final years of the 993, 1997, and 1998 (just like how the 993 Carrera S was introduced during the 2nd to the last year of production of the 993-series, so was the GTS in the 991.1-series, as the model years coincide with the final years of the 991.1-series, 2015 and 2016). When the Carrera S' 1997 model year was released, it was championed for featuring enthralling standard-issue performance equipment, offered in a naturally-aspirated package as it boasted coveted desirables such as a widebody (the 991.1 also features a widebody along with the standard-issue coveted performance equipment), and an uprated braking and suspension system, which made the S models very desirable. We all know that after production of the 993 ceased, then came along the water-cooled 996, which ushered in a new era for the 911. During this era, from 1999 to 2016, the 911 remained naturally-aspirated aside from the Turbos and the GT2s, and with the introduction of the 991.2 991 and now 992 911, the GT3, and GT3 RS are the only remaining non-turbocharged 911s, allow that to sink in.
Upon viewing this attractive GTS Cabriolet, your presence is welcomed by its form applauding Agate Grey Metallic finish; the assertive and lift reducing SportDesign front bumper; door located 'GTS' insignia in black; 20-inch Carrera S wheels completed in black (showcased in front of red brake calipers with white 'Porsche' script); LED headlights; the retro 911 harkening and GTS specific, all-black rear air intake grille; non-illuminating, vent-like center strip situated between the optioned clear LED taillights, all combine to provide an immensely pleasing aesthetic; the quad exhaust outlets from the Sport exhaust system that boasts a black finish and is surrounded by a panel finished in black.
Just before you enter the Black Leather interior, you're first met by black door sills with brushed-look aluminum inlays featuring 'Carrera GTS' insignia in black, and when inside you can expect an even more ergonomically adapted and sport natured cabin featuring additional legroom than before; a Carrera GT-esque rising center console; light-colored twin-stitching and aluminum/black brushed aluminum/metallic-coated surfacing on select areas. The driver is faced with a leather-wrapped 3-spoke SportDesign steering wheel featuring alloy gearshift paddles and displays that shows when 'Sport', 'Sport Plus' and 'Launch Control' modes have been switched on; black instrumentation dials situated behind orange needles with the gauge to the right of the 'GTS' logo bearing tachometer boasting a 4.6 - inch color display that relays navigation info as well as other useful functions; a centrally located dash-mounted SportChrono dial in black; 7-inch touchscreen navigation display; the winsome PDK shifter that's in extremely short reach from the steering wheel. Front occupants are embraced by perforated Adaptive Sport Seats featuring heating/cooling functionalities and can expect in-cabin audio playback via the optioned BOSE Surround Sound System featuring 12-speakers.
Performance: 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 4.0 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. Powering the rear-wheel-drive GTS is a naturally-aspirated 3.8L DFI flat-six engine, delivering a spirited 430 hp with 325 lb-ft of torque and results in a top speed of around 187 mph.
