    • Autobild compares the Porsche 991.2 Carrera 4S, 4 GTS, and 911 Turbo

      Porsche very neatly and evenly splits up the 911 range. With the Carrera going turbo and every 911 short of the GT3 being turbocharged what does Porsche do to differentiate the models? Well, they break them up by cost for acceleration essentially.


      The quickest car here is the 911 Turbo. No surprise there, right? It is the most expensive. The GTS is in the middle and the S is the cheapest but slowest. This is pretty much how Porsche has always done things but there certainly is not the differentiation there was previously when the Carrera, S, and GTS models were naturally aspirated.


      Look at the test results. Is the 911 Turbo really worth the premium over the S and GTS? Especially considering that with a tune either will likely match or exceed it?


      Keep in mind that is the standard 911 Turbo and not the Turbo S which retails for $188,100. Essentially, a $200k+ car with options out the door.

      The 991.2 GTS may be the sweet spot of the 911 lineup. Considering its power kit can be retrofitted, one can opt for an S and then get more power with a Porsche warranty as well.

      It is a good time to be a Porsche 911 enthusiast no matter which way you go.
