Origin of the Porsche GTS
For those who do not know, GTS stands for “Gran Turismo Sport," or the highest performance-focused street version of the Porsche. From there, we have the GT Porsche models (GT2, GT3, GT4), which take it all to a whole other level of sport performance. The GTS cars are the perfect in-between, everyday “sporty” models.
The first GTS model dates back to a little over 50 years ago, with the 1963 904 GTS. This car was upgraded for track use purposes and won the manufacturer's world championship in 1964 and 1965. Because of how well-sorted this model was for street use, it set the precedent for Porsche in taking race-developed know-how and putting it into standard road cars.
The stylish GTS trim came back in the ‘80s-‘90s with the arrival of the 924 GTS and 928 GTS. The 1981 924 Carrera GTS was special with its engine that produced 245 horsepower. However, if your model was one of the 15 Club Sports with a roll-cage and lightweight body shell with fiberglass panels and plexiglass windows, you could reach 280 horsepower.
The 928 GTS in 1993 could hit 350 horsepower with its front-mounted 5.4L V8 engine, if you were lucky.
The GTS’s speed, performance, and overall look have carried through into today’s models.
The first modern-era Porsche GTS was the Cayenne GTS. The current GTS Porsches are exactly the way they are supposed to be–very high performance cars for their model series. The GTS is the perfect car to zip around town on the weekends; just wait for Spring.
