The Porsche 911 has for long been at the pinnacle of the sports car market, with its continuing looks that are always superb, fantastic driving experience and pure involvement with technological enhancements that keep every new 911 feeling special. The 911, 991 was introduced to the worlds press at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show replacing the much loved 997. The 991 was larger than the 997, with the wheelbase increased by 100 mm to 2,450 mm, and the overall length up by 70 mm to 4,490 mm. A new transaxle was developed so that the rear wheels could be moved 76 mm backward in relation to the position of the engine, which significantly improves the weight distribution and cornering performance of the car. The GTS is seen as being the bridge in-between a 911 Turbo or GT3, with the straight line speed to almost match the Turbo but with cornering ability much like the GT3, making this arguably the perfect balance between the two and by far and away the pick of the Carrera range. Following the 991 facelift the GTS received a new engine, out with 3.8L and in with the 3.0L twin turbo flat-six that produces 444bhp, up by 14bhp and new 0-60 time of just 3.6 seconds making this an extremely fast straight line car with the PDK transmission and 4-wheel-drive system. This range-topping model features Porsche Active Suspension Management with the sports chassis as standard, which means the GTS rides 20mm lower than a base-spec Carrera and 10mm lower than the Carrera S. Sport Chrono is also standard fit, which incorporates dynamic engine mounts and a switchable sports exhaust system.
Introduced in 2012, the 991 Turbo has a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-6 engine generating 520 BHP and 620 N⋅m (457 lb⋅ft) of torque. The S version has an upgraded version of the engine generating a maximum power output of 560 BHP and 700 N⋅m (516 lb⋅ft) of torque, but the torque is pushed to 750 N⋅m (553 lb⋅ft) with overboost function. Both of the versions have all-wheel drive. the Turbo S comes exclusively with the PDK transmission. The Turbo S can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds as claimed by Porsche but has achieved 2.6 seconds by many car magazine tests. New technologies featuring adaptive aerodynamics and rear wheel steering are included as standard.
