- Dynamic Carrera models pack uprated turbo flat-six
- Stiffer springs, reduced insulation and Turbo brakes headline additions

The 2022 Porsche 911 GTS has been unveiled, ahead of its Australian launch in the first quarter of 2022 (January to March inclusive).
Debuting in fixed-roof Coupe, soft-top Cabriolet and iconic Targa body styles, the 911 GTS serves as the latest application of Porsche’s “sweet spot” GTS moniker, which build on regular (Carrera S) variants of the model with more power, a focus on driving dynamics, and increases standard equipment levels.
Power comes from the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat-six petrol engine as the Carrera S, though revised tuning has upped power to 353kW and 570Nm – up 22kW/50Nm over the model on which it’s based.
It’s bolted to a choice of eight-speed dual-clutch automatic or, as a no-cost option on the rear-drive GTS coupe, a seven-speed manual – the first application of a manual gearbox on a non-GT, 992-generation 911 in Australia. The three-pedal gearbox’s shift lever has been shortened by 10mm for the GTS.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels as standard in Carrera GTS variants, or to all four corners in Carrera 4 GTS coupe and cabriolet, and Targa 4 GTS models.
The 0-100km/h sprint takes as little as 3.3 seconds in the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4 GTS coupe with the dual-clutch auto gearbox.
The GTS models sit 10mm lower than a standard Carrera S, with the springs and rear-axle components borrowed from the stiffer, hi-po 911 Turbo. Active sports suspension is standard on coupe and Cabriolet models.
The 911 Turbo influences continue elsewhere in the wheel arches, with the GTS borrowing its bigger brother’s larger brakes and centre-locking alloy wheels, measuring 20 inches in diameter up front, and 21 inches at the rear.
A sports exhaust system is standard, while the GTS also sees some sound insulation removed over its regular Carrera S donor.
Differentiating the new GTS from lesser 992-generation 911s visually are front and rear bumpers shared with the optional Sport Design package, plus black accents, a unique front lip spoiler, GTS script on the doors, and tinted headlight and tail-light housings.
Inside, microfibre now trims the seat centres, GT Sport steering wheel rim, door handles, armrests, centre console lid and gear lever, while a GTS Interior Package can add Carmine Red or Crayon (light grey) contrast stitching around the cabin.
The Sport Chrono package, Porsche Track Precision app, a tyre temperature display and Sport Seats Plus with four-way electric adjustment are all standard.
The 10.9-inch central touchscreen now runs Porsche’s latest PCM 6 operating system, with simplified menus, newly-added Android Auto (joining wireless Apple CarPlay) and a ‘Hey Porsche’ voice assistant.
A new Lightweight Design Package will be available for the first time on the GTS, which saves 25kg in total through a rear-seat delete, carbon-fibre reinforced plastic front bucket seats, lightweight side and rear glass, a lightweight battery, rear-wheel steering and other visual touches.
Standard equipment in Australia includes metallic paint, auto-dimming mirrors, power-folding side mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, reversing camera, a 360-degree camera, lane-change assist, keyless entry, power steering plus, heated front seats and steering wheel, windscreen with grey top tint, a tyre repair kit, Bose surround sound system, and digital radio.
The 2022 Porsche 911 GTS range is available to order now, ahead of first deliveries in the first quarter of 2022.
