The 997 GTS is fast becoming a popular and much sought after modern classic. This example comes in the much-desired spec of being painted in black and having a manual gearbox. Alongside this, the additional performance upgrades of the GTS make for a scintillating and rewarding drive.
The 997 is the most commercially successful Porsche 911 of all time. It has been argued that this is the last of the real Porsches, referring to the 997 series as the factory’s swansong whilst under independent ownership. The GTS models enjoy the seductive wide body and feature a whole host of additional options.
A special intake manifold, with six rather than one single flap, switches between power and torque-optimised maps. As a result, the output of the 3.8-litre flat six is raised from 380 BHP at 6500 rpm to 408 HP at 7300rpm, and although the torque figure remains at 311 lb/ft, it is produced at 200 rpm lower.
The Porsche 997 GTS blends the very best of the sports models in the Carrera range with the equipment level of the luxury derivatives. The GTS is the hybrid of the performance racetrack inspired models with everyday sportiness and comfort of its Carrera S sibling, with more power than a ‘S’, and solid road holding, the GTS provides the best combination of power and handling.
This model is fitted with an extensive options list including a Sport Chrono Plus Package, a sports exhaust system and the Porsche communication system. The car was supplied new by Porsche centre Chester. This a fantastic opportunity to acquire one of the more desirable GTS’ on the market.
