VIDEO: Porsche 992 GTS Lightweight Pack: Stealth GT3? First drive!
Is the Lightweight Pack Worth It on the GTS?
Porsche’s 992 is a big leap however, and because of that I’m not sure how Porsche can make the GTS that much better than the already brilliant standard cars. It needs to have more emotion, needs to have more driving ability and it needs to give that special feeling of the GTS. The design is better in person, with the giveaway centre looking wheels finished in pure black, straight from our turbo. Sports design package comes as standard but with more black areas covered either in matte plastic or gloss black. Logo on the side also gives the game away, but not much otherwise.
The real changes come under the skin, with the chassis from our 992 Turbo: this means we get PASM as standard, with the coupe and Cabriolet getting the 10 mm drop. Our rear springs also feature the helper springs as seen in both turbo and GT3. Overall it’s a more rigid car than the standard Carrera. The car also features a slightly unique exhaust system, wait for later in the video to hear this!
Our lightweight package on our 992 Carrera GTS car brings a number of changes: the 918 bucket seats in full carbon are a dead giveaway, lightweight glass all around the car, a lightweight starter battery, unique positioning for the active rear spoiler, and hidden further aerodynamic changes under our front-end. The final result is a 25 kg drop, and thanks to the removal of sound insulation much more emotional sound inside the cabin.
