What's new from Porsche?

The German company has revealed details of its new 911 GTS line-up. As before, GTS sits above Carrera S in the pecking order, so that means more power, aesthetic changes inside and out and some chassis tweaks too, purportedly to allow the GTS bridge the gap between the Carrera S and the hardcore 911 GT models.

How much more power?

The twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six gets 'newly-developed' turbochargers to increase peak outputs by 30hp and 50Nm over the 911 Carrera S, which means the GTS driver has 450hp and 550Nm of torque to play with - and the latter is on tap all the way from 2,150- to 5,000rpm. The fastest 0-62mph time is 3.6 seconds (911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe with PDK), while the fastest top speed quoted is 194mph - for the 911 Carrera GTS Coupe with a manual gearbox.

Just how many GTS models are there?

Five, or ten if you consider seven-speed manual and PDK options for each: rear-drive 911 Carrera GTS Coupe and Cabriolet, four-wheel drive 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupe and Cabriolet and a single Targa version, the 911 Targa 4 GTS. Prices start at £94,316 and rise to £108,144 for that Targa.

So what else do I get for the money?

Mechanically, there's Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with sports suspension for a 10mm lower ride height than the 911 Carrera S, plus the Sport Chrono Package as standard, which adds dynamic engine mounts, a switchable sports exhaust and driving mode selector mounted on the steering wheel.

And in terms of looks and equipment?

A new front bumper, new door mirrors, 20-inch alloys and black detailing at the back (including darkened light lens) help the 911 GTS stand out, as does the use of the wider all-wheel drive chassis. Inside, there are lashings of Alcantara, GTS logos and an updated Porsche smartphone app, which enables automatic recording, detailed display and analysis of driving data on the driver's phone.

When do we see the 911 GTS in the UK?

From March this year, though you can order yours right away.
