It’s difficult to look at the 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS without thinking that it exists solely because of Porsche’s obsessive need to make a car for every hyper-specific budget and taste. And the truth is that’s probably was why it was created, but that doesn’t matter, because Porsche has still made an excellent car. Slotting in between the S and the GT3, the GTS actually hits that sweet spot between race car and street car, which the S falls short of and the GT3 overshoots. But this is something that not a lot of people are aware of, thanks to the fact that not counting special editions, there are now 25 different variations of the 911 and you need to be quite the fanboy to keep them all straight.
Porsche has put out this video, seemingly just to remind us of just what the GTS is and why it exists. It’s the sort of thing that would be entirely unnecessary for a lot of automakers, but is a logical move for Porsche, and it’s not as though we could ever object to well-produced footage of a 911 on a race track.
