The 911 has always been the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions sports cars. The 55-year old tradition will continue, as the famous carmaker was introduced a completely new generation of its most iconic car. Of course, there are several variants of the 911 and the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will continue to be one of the most popular options.
In the model’s hierarchy, it is a higher-grade model that stands only below the most capable GT3 version. It offers a great balance between performance and practicality and we have no doubt that the new version will continue in the same way.
- Exceptional performances
- Part of the iconic nameplate
- Driver-oriented cabin
- High price tag
- Below-average fuel economy
Of course, this redesign is about to bring a lot of novelties. With this model, things about aesthetics are always predictable. The company’s engineers stick to the proven styling philosophy, which hasn’t been changed for full 55 years. Therefore, don’t count on radical changes in this case.
The 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will continue with a recognizable shape and look, just with a fine number of modern upgrades which will make it look fresh. On the other side, count on a lot of mechanical upgrades. The company has prepared a new platform, codenamed 992. This particular version will carry on with further upgrades, for better performances and overall ride quality.
Once again, don’t count on any radical changes. The overall layout won’t be much different compared to the recently introduced new generation of more basic models. This sports car perfectly combines its spartan design philosophy with excellent quality and we have no doubt in the same approach once again.
Therefore, count on lots of analog buttons and known, in opposite to all those digitalized controls that are typical for the modern automotive industry, which characterizes most rivals, such as Lexus LC, Mercedes GT, Audi R8, Acura NSX etc.
As well already mentioned, the GTS has been the second most capable version in the model’s line so far. We are pretty sure that the new model will continue in the same way. Therefore, count on spectacular performances.
The 911 traditionally sticks to V6 engines and the 2022 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS will most likely continue with the same 3.0-liter V6 engine. In the current model, it delivers 444 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. Naturally, the new model should come with a notable power boost.
2020 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Release Date and Price
