2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet Front Three Quarter In Motion 03
Malaga, Spain - Arguably the best corner on the private Ascari circuit is the first one. You’ve just straight-lined the tight, uphill right-left kink that ended the last lap and popped over the rise. Now it’s time to cut hard left. Stay off the apex curbing, give the 2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet its heading, and bury the gas.
Oh, mama, that’s fun.
It’s particularly so in a car like the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet, which is why we’re here lapping at Ascari. The German automaker has now filled out its lineup with GTS versions of all models except the 918 and Macan.

What does GTS mean? Specifically Gran Turismo Sport, a moniker harking back some 50 years. To meet the racing regs back then, Porsche created the fiberglass-bodied 904 Carrera GTS, which had to be street legal. It was. That move allowed race-prepped 904s to score an impressive 1-2 finish in the 1964 Targa Florio against a field including Shelby Cobras and Ferrari 250 GTOs. Class wins by 904s are legend.
Translated into 2015, GTS means the sportiest of each non-turbo Porsche model without getting into special versions such as the 911 GT3 or Cayman GT4. For instance, the ever-sportier hierarchy for 911s is Carrera, Carrera S, Carrera GTS.
2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet Steering
Details vary by model, but the sports cars have Porsche’s PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), Sport Chrono with Sport Plus, the Sport Exhaust system, and a ride height that’s roughly four-tenths of an inch lower than non-GTS models.
There are the expected bits of added bodywork, detailing at the front and along the sills. Items such as the model designation, exhaust pipes, and headlight surrounds are finished in black, as are the radiator cover and wheels on the 911 GTS. You get the idea.
Ditto inside. The interior includes standard sport seats with the GTS logo. Alcantara is used as an accent and wrapped around the steering wheel.

We concentrated on the rear-wheel-drive model of the 2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet, though the GTS upgrade comes on 911 two- and all-wheel-drive coupes and cabrios, while the Targa is all-wheel-drive only.
The 2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet gets a version of Porsche’s 3.8-liter flat-six with 430 hp, hits 60 mph in 4.0 seconds equipped with the PDK (4.4 to 60 mph for the manual), and touches 188 mph in the PDK model. Add one tick for the manual. The added GTS power comes in part from a double-resonance intake system using a trio of flaps to route and reroute intake air for max effect. The best part is, from about 4,200 to the 7,500 rpm redline, the flat-six howls out back with a raspy resonance.
Oh, mama, again.
Transmissions in 911 GTS models have seven speeds, in either manual or PDK automatic flavors. Let’s start an argument, shall we? There’s no denying the manual is fun, with rapid rev-matching on downshifts. Still, with the PDK left in D, we found snapping off sub-100-millsecond shifts around Ascari to be the better experience.
2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet Gear Shifter
Proof of PDK greatness came in a section on the track with two tight, 90-degree lefts in quick succession followed by a long straight. You’re in Sport Plus mode with its more aggressive brake and throttle action, so the PDK makes certain you never leave the power sweet spots. No need to think about shifting. You just drive. Denying PDK is like a professional photographer denying digital cameras.
Bring on the emails.

Also able to concentrate more on driving, it’s no surprise to find the 911 GTS turning in smartly, brakes secure in their feedback. Balance is so even fore-aft, it makes us question if the engine is really hung out back. All 911 GTS models come with the wider all-wheel-drive body, but they somehow feel even broader in back thanks to that sense of stability.
We also drove the GTS versions of the Boxster, Cayman, and Panamera. The Boxster packs 330 hp and the Cayman 340 hp (both are equipped with uprated versions of the 3.4-liter flat-six). The Panamera uses a 440-hp, 4.3-liter V-8.
2015 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet Front View In Motion
Where the 911-based GTS has a solid, broad-hipped feeling when rushed around the Ascari track, the Boxster and Cayman felt more ... hmm ... frisky. A 90-degree corner will tempt either car to wag its tail, though the electronic nannies will quickly intercept and tame these actions. While once upon a time you might have needed another corner to settle things down, these days you simply stomp your foot down on the gas immediately. Some drivers might find this tail wagging a bit off-putting; others will love it.
As for the all-wheel-drive Panamera GTS, there’s no friskiness, but more a sense that you’re driving a NASCAR Porsche. The thrum of the V-8 doesn’t hurt one bit and the platform’s width means the car feels well-planted. It’s not as quick as the sports cars but fun in a skis-versus-snowboard sense.

You can order a 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet with the manual transmission for $127,095 (PDK versions start at $131,935), up from the Carrera Cabrio’s $97,195 and the softtop Carrera S at $111,795 (with manual transmission and including destination). Porsche isn’t shy with its options list. Checking boxes on the extras brought us a GTS tab of $157,070 even without the Burmester sound system ($5,290) or the ceramic composite brakes ($8,520).

2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Rear Three Quarter Blurred Storefronts
Burbling down the cobblestoned streets of Savannah, Georgia, shaded by canopies of moss-hung oaks, a Porsche 911 might seem as genteel and traditional as the city itself.
My word, this sapphire-blue debutante has even arrived straight from Atlanta, where Porsche has its U.S. headquarters.
And a 911 is welcome in any country club, as we learn after sweet-talking the car onto the first fairway of the Harbour Town Golf Links, the PGA mecca on nearby Hilton Head Island.
2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Front Cemetery
But as with many hospitable Southerners, there’s a rebellious side to this Porsche, a 475-horsepower family secret hidden below its imposing fixed wing atop the rear deck.That secret is aired every time I squeeze the throttle, and the 3.8-liter boxer-six rushes to 9,000 rpm like hellfire unleashed. This isn’t your everyday 911. This is a GT3 as fiery as Scarlett herself and just as indomitable.
Desirable, too, at least for men of plantation means, with the Porsche 911 GT3 starting at $132,395 and reaching $163,080 after options, including a $9,210 set of carbon- ceramic brakes. As a combination daily driver and track star, this torque-vectoring, four-wheel-steering GT3 blazed a faster trail through the South than Gen. Sherman.
Departing the Marshall House, a charming old hotel in the city’s historic district, we head for Bonaventure Cemetery, made famous in John Berendt’s nonfiction masterpiece, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” With its Spanish moss and spooky mausoleums, Bonaventure is pure Southern Gothic, and lumpy dirt lanes rise to meet a body lowered about 1.2 inches (versus the base Carrera) and a three-part front spoiler. Fear not: An optional $3,490 button raises the low nose and we come through unscathed. Alas, we discover “Bird Girl,” the sculpture that graced the cover of Berendt’s book, has been moved to the nearby Telfair art museum after being overwhelmed by tourists.
2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Front Three Quarter Cobblestone Street

Genteel manner: The GT3 proves a suitable escort on Savannah’s cobblestoned streets and town squares and to nearby Fort Pulaski.
Noted Savannah son Johnny Mercer, the Academy Award-winning songwriter and Capitol Records co-founder, is buried here, as well. And the day brightens as we crank onto Johnny Mercer Boulevard, through this Low Country jigsaw of marshes, inlets, and coastline to Tybee Island.
Parked before Tybee’s handsome lighthouse, we admire the Porsche’s more aggressive architecture. The extensive use of aluminum trims the weight of the body shell by 13 percent compared with the previous Porsche 911 GT3, with torsional rigidity up 25 percent. Oh, and those sprawling hips, worthy of a ballgown, with a rear track that’s nearly 1.5 inches wider than rear-drive Carreras. Add a ram-air rear intake, three exhaust vents in the bodywork, and the composite wing with adjustable supports for track action. As with all of the new 991-series 911s, the GT3’s interior is beautiful, functional, and blessedly free of gimmicks, here with optional leather and Alcantara trim ($3,320) and body-cradling 18-way adaptive seats ($2,635).
Sorry, kids, there’s no back seat, only a carpeted parcel shelf that’s among the mild compromises to typical 911 comfort. The GT3 wails like no mortal Porsche, but passengers can still hold a polite conversation. The ride is stiff but not insufferable, even with the adaptive suspension set to Sport. Active magnetic-fluid engine mounts help soothe vibrations and any sense that the GT3 is a shark out of water on everyday roads.

The boxer-six chuffs and quakes at idle, preferring to never dip below 5,000 rpm if it could; horsepower peaks at 8,250 rpm. The masterwork shares only a few parts with a standard 911 six. Unique developments include the cylinder head, dry-sump lubrication, forged titanium pistons and connecting rods, and hollow valves to allow such lofty engine speeds. Multi-hole injectors spit atomized fuel at 2,900 psi, two-thirds more pressure than a standard Carrera. The engine weighs 55 fewer pounds than the previous GT3’s.
After a walk on a deserted Tybee beach, we climb aboard for Cockspur Island and the Civil War bulwark of Fort Pulaski, which offers its own historical perspective on disruptive technology. With its 25 million bricks and ingenious moats, Fort Pulaski was co-engineered in 1829 by a young West Point graduate on his first assignment, Lt. Robert E. Lee. Decades later, with the Union preparing its cannon assault from Tybee Island, one mile distant, Lee—then the South’s commander—was convinced the fort remained impregnable.
But the Union’s newfangled rifled cannons, with their fast-revving projectiles, blasted through walls 7.5 feet thick “as though they were so much paper,” said a Confederate captain whose regiment surrendered after a 30-hour-long, 5,275-shell assault whose scars still cover Fort Pulaski’s walls. “The science of war has leaped a century forward, and all are behind the age,” the captain proclaimed. From that moment, defenses made from fortified masonry were obsolete.

Years from now, if manual transmissions go extinct, historians might view Porsche’s PDK automatic as a similar game-changer. Escorting the GT3 in relaxed automatic mode around Savannah’s picturesque town squares, this dual-clutch gearbox is as smooth and discreet as a butler pouring sweet tea. But this seven-speed can switch personalities in an instant, firing off sub-100-millisecond shifts or instigating bloodcurdling automated launches. Compared to a Carrera, the metal shift paddles are notably stiffer, with shorter travel. The final drive ratio is 15 percent shorter, with 9 percent shorter gearing on average. That gear spread lets the GT3 reach its 195-mph apogee in seventh gear as opposed to sixth in the Carrera.
Pulling both paddles simultaneously engages the “paddle neutral” function: Both clutches open and then re-engage with lightning haste when paddles are released— especially good for blasts from a standstill. Lightweight gears and wheels also promote crazy-high revving: You haven’t lived until you’ve downshifted into a whirling 7,500-rpm vortex.
Alas, there’s nothing lightweight about Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room. President Obama sampled the carb-packed downhome fare at this former Savannah boarding house. We pass nearly two dozen dishes around our communal table, feeling as if we’ve wandered into a Rockwell holiday painting.

"This GT3 is as focused as a copperhead in mid-strike."
Appetites sated, it’s time to ward off a nap with a dash to Hilton Head. The GT3 draws its admirers, gentlemen and otherwise, but it’s growing bored with the languid Georgian pace. Come sunup, the GT3 throws off its shackles at Roebling Road Raceway, a scruffy but fast-flowing 2-mile circuit: Free at last.
We toggle PDK to Sport mode, its automated logic now so sound that self-shifting is almost unnecessary. A console exhaust button opens switchable front silencers. Reduced backpressure boosts torque by up to 26 lb-ft between 3,000 and 4,000 rpm. Viper fans might chortle at a modest 325 lb-ft of peak torque. But in first gear, the engine zings to 9,000 in such eye-blink fashion that PDK is practically required to avoid blowing the shift to second. As we shoot past 50 mph, rear-wheel steering begins turning in tandem with the front wheels, virtually extending the wheelbase by 20 inches to keep things stable at rocketing speeds.
On the sweeping entry to the front straight, where I’d expect the 20-inch tires to push wide, I can sense the rear steering—and Porsche’s rear torque vectoring and variable rear differential—aiding my line, rewarding me with crisper exits and a 145-mph blast down the straight. As that braking zone blurs past, I find myself halting too soon at first, miscalculating the uncanny power of the yellow-calipered ceramic-composite brakes.
2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Profile Motion Roebling Road Raceway

Southern hospitality: The GT3 unleashes its 475 horses at the Roebling Road Raceway.
If the GT3’s floor-mounted fire extinguisher (a strangely affordable Porsche option at $175) didn’t remind me of the car’s mission, the performance does: Raw, mechanical, and remorseless, this Porsche is as focused as a copperhead snake in mid-strike. Porsche credits the agility and confidence boost of rear steering for a Nürburgring lap time of 7:25, a new benchmark for this dual-purpose beast.
Rushing from the track, it’s time to play with launch control. Simultaneously mashing both pedals, I watch the tach surge to 7,000 rpm. Now, release the brakes and hang on: The Porsche 911 GT3 does a Looney Tunes impression, seemingly scrabbling its feet and amassing energy before exploding in beep-beep Road Runner fashion. Porsche cites a 0-60 run of 3.3 seconds, and my twisted innards say that’s about right. Hey, let’s do it again. And again.
2015 Porsche 911 GT3 Rear Three Quarter
A glance at the watch—rather than stopwatch—means it’s time to say goodbye. We point the German demon toward Savannah’s airport, romping to 130 mph as we nervously eye the mirrors. Between Savannah and Porsche’s carpetbagger, it’s been pure Southern hospitality, and we’re stuffed and satisfied. Come to think of it, performance-cravers who upgrade from a “lesser” 911 to a GT3 might adopt a steely epigram from Ms. O’Hara: “As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.”
2015 Porsche 911
2015 Porsche 911

New for 2015

The Porsche 911 receives a number of changes, notably introducing the 911 Carrera GTS, which includes the Carrera GTS, Carrera GTS Cabriolet, Carrera 4 GTS, Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet, and Targa 4 GTS models. The new GTS model line fits between the Carrera S (400 hp) and the GT3 (475 hp) with 430 hp and several other performance features, as well as a price that’s between the two previously established models.

Vehicle Overview

The Porsche 911 is an icon that continues to be the benchmark for premium sports cars while remaining one of the most communicative vehicles that manages to be accessible, even more so with the current 991 series of Carrera, Carrera S, and Carrera GTS. The 911 fits above the mid-engine Boxster and Cayman but below the 918 Spyder in the Porsche lineup.


The 2015 Porsche 911 is available in a dizzying array of combinations with 20 distinct models, most stemming from three core models: the Carrera, Carrera S, and Carrera GTS. Each base has a Cabriolet, all-wheel drive (designated by the digit “4” in the model name), AWD Cabriolet, and Targa (all are AWD) version. Turbo models keep the pattern but don’t have GTS variants, and all have AWD. The GT3 reigns supreme over the non-convertible, non-turbo models. Most models are still available with a seven-speed manual transmission, and all offer an optional seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) automatic; several come only with the PDK.

Model: Carrera, Carrera Cabriolet, Carrera 4, Carrera 4 Cabriolet, Targa 4
Engine and Transmission: 3.4-liter flat-6; 7-speed manual or 7-speed PDK
Power: 350 hp/287 lb-ft
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 18-19/26-27 mpg (manual); 19-21/26-28 mpg (PDK)

Model: Carrera S, Carrera S Cabriolet, Carrera 4S, Carrera 4S Cabriolet, Targa 4S
Engine and Transmission: 3.8-liter flat-6; 7-speed manual or 7-speed PDK
Power: 400 hp/325 lb-ft
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 18-19/26-27 mpg (manual); 18-20/25-28 mpg (PDK)

Model: Carrera GTS, Carrera GTS Cabriolet, Carrera 4 GTS, Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet, Targa 4 GTS
Engine and Transmission: 3.8-liter flat-6; 7-speed manual or 7-speed PDK
Power: 430 hp/325 lb-ft
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 18/25-26 mpg (manual); 18-19/25-26 mpg (PDK, excluding Targa 4 GTS)

Model: Turbo, Turbo Cabriolet
Engine and Transmission(s): twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-6; 7-speed PDK
Power: 520 hp/287 lb-ft (524 lb-ft with overboost)
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 17/24 mpg

Model: Turbo S, Turbo S Cabriolet
Engine and Transmission: twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-6; 7-speed PDK
Power: 560 hp/516 lb-ft (553 lb-ft with overboost)
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 17/24 mpg

Model: GT3
Engine and Transmission: 3.8-liter flat-6; 7-speed PDK
Power: 475 hp/325 lb-ft
EPA-rated fuel efficiency: 15/20 mpg
Notable features on the Porsche 911 abound, as the myriad of distinct models each have some features to enhance their particular goals. Across the line, the PDK automatic is a gem, one that surpasses the manual in every quantifiable category, from lightning quick gear changes to the gas-savings by coasting and decoupling the engine and transmission to the “paddle neutral” feature that allows quick launches and burnouts on GT3 models. Interior features include a 7-inch infotainment screen, optional Burmester or Bose premium audio systems, Porsche Communication Management software (includes a speed limit indicator that displays the speed limit detected on the gauge cluster), optional heated steering wheels, heated/ventilated seats (Sports bucket seats cannot be ventilated), a slide/tilt sunroof (coupe models), and an adaptive cruise control system. Notable performance-related features include the Sport Chrono package (stopwatch mounted on the dashboard, dynamic engine mounts, revised PDK functions, and launch control), active suspension management, torque vectoring plus, dynamic chassis control, and on the GT3, rear-wheel steering and an electronic differential.
The 2015 Porsche 911 has not been crash tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS.

What We Think

The 2015 Porsche 911 is an incredibly dynamic and impressive sports car, one that becomes even easier to drive in the latest iteration. Gone are the days when danger lurked on every freeway cloverleaf for drivers foolish enough to lift off the accelerator mid-turn in a 911. The 2015 Porsche 911 range has a flavor for any type of owner with three distinct power levels (Carrera, Carrera S, and Carrera GTS) that define the non-turbo ranks, the turbo models for the truly power hungry, the GT3 for track-day enthusiasts, and combinations of body styles and drivetrains to fill out the middle. Want a Cabriolet but live somewhere with serious weather? The Targa comes with AWD, looks great, and can give you an open-top experience in about 14 seconds (only while stopped, unfortunately).
Track-day aficionados who are looking at the GT3 will be best served by selecting the PCCB carbon-ceramic brakes, the front lift system (don’t want to leave the front splitter on the driveway), and the larger no-cost fuel tank (23.8 gallon over the standard 16.9 gallon). In our Second Drive Review of a 2014 Porsche 911 GT3, we wrote in detail about the recommended extras but also addressed the PDK-only issue. “Yes, the PDK is an amazing gearbox and makes the new car faster, but we miss the heavy, positive clutch and the firm shift action that made the six-speed manual so brilliant in older GT3s,” we wrote. “We also miss the fact that previous GT3 models felt truly special at all speeds, not just when pushed.” We also raised the same question when we compared a 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet to a 2014 Audi R8 Spyder and a 2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S, asking whether the new dynamic capabilities didn’t raise the performance index into the stratosphere, making the latest car rather pale unless pushed. Technology makes street cars more capable than yesterday’s track-only specials, but it also engineers out the things that challenged us. Despite all this, it’s impossible to say the 911 is anything but excellent.
“If the 991 is the only 911 you've ever driven, you'll probably think it's the best Porsche ever — and in many ways we agree,” we said. “If, on the other hand, you reveled in the old 911's endless feedback; if you relished the thrill of taming a car that didn't really want to be tamed; if you loved the 911 precisely because it wasn't perfect; and, certainly, if you thought that the Porsche 911 was an icon that couldn't be improved and shouldn't be changed, then the 2012 Porsche 911 might not feel like that much of an icon to you.”

2015 Porsche 991 Targa 4s Techart Rear Wing
Targas have gotten a bit of a bad rap through the years. They burden a car with the same decrease in rigidity and increase in weight as a convertible, without the full open-air effect. Times are changing, however, and the newest Porsche 911 Targa is nearly indistinguishable from a coupe in terms of rigidity—and cars have become so heavy that a few more pounds are inconsequential. Most sports car owners choose a Targa simply because they love the look and the wind in their hair. That's not to say those reasons are wrong, but why else would you want one if you didn't mind messing your mop while amplifying the visceral experience?

Porsche 911 Gt3 Rs Spied Front Three Quarters 02
A new leaked product planning document confirms that the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 RS will have a 4.0-liter flat-six engine good for 500 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque, and with a redline of 8,800 rpm. Those figures represent a big increase over Porsche's current track-focused model, the 2015 911 GT3, which has a 3.8-liter flat-six engine producing 475 hp and 324 lb-ft. A seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic is the only transmission choice.
