[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: This is the Porsche 911 GTS. What's the GTS? It's a variant of the 911 that sits above the S, but isn't quite as fast as the GT 3 or turbo models. Simply, this model combines a lot of the go fast options that you can get on the 911 S and some on the 911, as well. It's a little bit more powerful. It's a little bit lower. It's a bit cleaner air dynamically. It's a lot of small incremental changes that add up to make a more engaging, more fun driving experience, and it's a bit faster too. You have 450 horsepower now, credited to larger turbochargers that make more boost. You've got unique wheels. The ones in the rear are actually wider than wheels you can get on any other 911. They look like the Turbo S wheels, but they're actually black instead of the silver that you would get on the other models. The big difference that isn't that big at all is that rear drive models get the wider body from the four wheel drive models. Now, you can get GTS on rear all wheel drive coupe convertible targa, with the automatic, with the manual, with-- there's plenty of ways to order this car, but when you get it with the rear drive, you get the wider body from the four wheel drive model. And that means wider rear tracks, the rear wheels are a little bit further apart. Now, that may seem like a small thing, but that's the degree. It speaks to the level that Porsche keeps honing and refining and tuning these cars. And the GTS represents that focus. These are not huge comprehensive changes. They're slight additions that make the experience a little bit more exciting. What's the attraction to the GTS package then? The option, as Porsche points out, is that similarly equips this, versus a comfortable equipped 911 S, this is about 10% cheaper. When Porsche went to turbocharged flat 6s and all of its models, we were kind of worried that they would lose some of the excitement that we had come to know from revving one of these things out, but in this version with more power, it makes for an engine that feels broadly powerful and very brawny, regardless of where you're at in the RPM range of the tack. At low speeds when you're commuting around town dipping in the throttle produces a substantial acceleration. And when you really start getting into the middle range, it's really rewarding too. Credits revving this thing out as the way it sounds and part of that has to do with the GTS' sport exhaust system, but again another thing that's optional on the 911. The sport exhaust gives it that-- a little bit of that howl, but more so of when you lift up the throttle, you get the sounds of deceleration, the popping, the crackle, which makes-- always kind of makes you smile. It reminds you that you're driving something special and something sporty. Whee. And I love the way a 911 gets off of a corner. There's traction. There's confidence. There's power. There's a lot of-- just a lot of excitement and fun. And the real crucial thing about 911s is that they had that capability, no matter how you're driving them. If you're driving this car to work, you're still going to enjoy it at low speeds. When you're driving hard on a mountain road, it's going to be thrilling and exciting. And when you're driving it on a race track, it has all the capability you could want, regardless of your driving skill. This is a car that you can learn with as time goes on. This is something that you could experience and appreciate more and more the longer you own it. So that's the Porsche 911 GTS. Thank you guys for watching. If you want to see more, keep it tuned right here. [MUSIC PLAYING]
