Porsche announces expanded 911 line-up for 2017

Five new GTS models being added to Porsche 911 line-up this year…

Porsche has announced it will be expanding its 911 line-up in 2017 with five new GTS variants coming online.

Those Porsche 911 GTS models include:

  • 911 Carrera GTS with rear-wheel drive (coupe and convertible)
  • 911 Carrera 4 GTS with all-wheel drive (coupe and convertible)
  • 911 Targa 4 GTS with all-wheel drive

All five variants will feature an updated version of the 3.0 litre flat-six-cylinder engine.

Featuring larger turbochargers, Porsche tell us the upgraded engine delivers 450 hp (335kW), which is 30 hp (22kW) more than the current 911 Carrera S and 20 hp (14kW) above the previous, naturally-aspirated GTS model.

A seven-speed manual transmission comes as standard and the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is an option.

While the GTS models distinguish themselves within the 911 model line thanks to design features such as:

  • Sport Design front end with black spoiler lip
  • Increased rear spoiler extension height
  • Tinted tail lights
  • Rear lid grill strips with satin black finish
  • High-gloss black tailpipes
  • 20” centre lock wheels (painted in satin black)
  • Black GTS logos on the doors
