As with previous Carrera models, with the 992 finally comes the GTS. This time equipped with a huge arrangement of optional extras and customisation. The HP is increased from the Carrera at 385hp to the GTS’ 480hp. Available options on the Carrera and Targa GTS includes the Sport Chrono Pack, making the 0-62mph time a mind-blowing 3.4 seconds. An amazing performance from Porsche’s latest Carrera GTS, and a price-tag to follow, if keen enough, you can approach the cost of a Turbo and GT3, with optional upgrades driving it all the way north of £160,000 and a start price of £111,380.
This is a great balance of luxury and comfort, combined with impressive sports performance.
