Before the unveiling of the new type 991, Porsche gave the 997 one last hurrah and along came the GTS, a sportier, wide track, higher horsepower, and highly specified version of the Carrera S/4S.
Normally reserved for 4WD and motorsport department models, the rear-drive GTS retained its curvaceous wide-track body. It was also given a 3.8-litre direct-injection motor with the Power kit found in the Speedster and Sport Classic, boosting output to 402 BHP.
Other GTS goodies included RS Spyder center-lock 19-inch alloys, a SportDesign front apron/black side skirt from the GT2, half leather/Alcantara sport seats, Alcantara steering wheel, headlining, and door cards, all directly from the GT3.
The GTS is a driver-focused machine, yet not as crashy and hard as a Motorsport model, delivering visceral thrill from its high-output naturally aspirated flat six, superglue grip from its rear wide track, and an intense soundtrack unique only to the 3.8 unit thanks to its bi-moral sport exhaust system.
The car offered is in virtually as-new condition and was originally sold by Porsche Centre Brisbane in 2011. On the showroom floor is a super hard-to-find rear-drive Carrera GTS PDK Coupe ordered in Carrara White with a very low 12,300 kilometers traveled.
• Sport Chrono Package Plus
• Carrara White Paint
• Sport Exhaust System
• Paint Protection Film
Meticulously maintained, this Carrera GTS is accompanied by all of its original keys and books, documenting an impressive Porsche Dealer service record.
Most would think the GTS is nothing more than the greatest hits of the 997, with Porsche picking the best bits and throwing them into a mixer. But, in fact, the GTS is perhaps the most complete 911 there has ever been.
Don't miss this opportunity to own an exceedingly desirable and rare type 997 that represents the last of the analog driver-focused era of the Porsche 911.
