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 sultry GTS Cabriolet, your presence is welcomed by its figure accentuating white 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) and in conjunction with the exterior's pleasing finish, looks phenomenal; Bi-Xenon headlights with black housings; the retro 911 harkening and GTS specific, all-black rear air intake grille; non-illuminating, vent-like center strip situated between the LED taillights; 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 two-tone Black/Garnet Red leather-upholstered 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 what was available before; a Carrera GT-esque rising center console; Carmine Red twin-stitching and aluminum/black brushed aluminum/metallic-coated surfacing on select areas with carpeting featured in red. 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 Power Sport Seats featuring memory settings and heating/cooling functionalities for both occupants and can expect in-cabin audio playback via the optioned BOSE Surround Sound System featuring 12-speakers.
Performance: Equipped with the Sport Chrono Package Plus in combination with 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 188 mph.
