How different is the Porsche 911 GTS from GT3?

Test drive report for each car

The other day,About 911GTS, I wrote my impressions of my wifeBut this time, I would like to introduce my husband's impression which is the main subject.

GT3 and GTS are similar but different

Regarding 911 GTS, my husband was saying like this compared to GT3.

This GTS was equipped with Michelin Pilot Sports Cup 2 tires, so it's the same as my GT3. SoRide comfort under the same conditionsI tried to compareAfter all, GTS has less swing in the low speed range.
But when it comes to speed, the GT3 is more comfortable to ride.
This may have GTCB with PCCB,GTS felt a little rough tireWhat. At some high speeds, the difference is even more pronounced: the GT3 is transcendental flat, proceeding as if there were no tire drag to really slip. The GTS was smooth enough, but I didn't think it was.

It was that.

GTS and GT3 are different even though they are wearing the same cup tires. In addition, about impression when we ran winding,

If you bring it to winding,As expected there is only GTS and it is fast. In addition to power, the cornering is stable, and every corner turns as expected. I don't need any technique and I think anyone can keep a light pace.
On the other hand, if you attack a little, you know GT3,There is no "biting feeling" on the road so far.The speed of the initial response and the response are mild for about half a beat, especially in the sense of ground contact and security at the front. The GTS has a natural front, while the GT3 has more power.
GTS tries to turn a little more smoothly against GT3 trying to cut itI feel like that.

He said.

Also, about impressions of driving using PDK and paddle shift,

PDK gear shifting is fast. It's not as good as the new 992, but it's fast enough.Enter the sports plus mode, operate the paddle shift, and the feeling of accelerating while echoing a bang, a bang, and a good sound is goose bumpsYana.
The sound of the engine is clearer than the new 992, or the sound of the machine is slightly less due to the emphasis on exhaust sound. The volume was so impressive that I didn't feel ashamed of the GTS name.

When. Next, when I ran a small winding that followed a tight corner that I ran at 718 Cayman the other day ...

As expected, I have more power. Almost in 2nd gear, it's almost impossible to go in 3rd gear. And if you try to increase the speed even in 2nd gear, it will be overspeed in no time, so I think it is a fact that you can not enjoy much.


911 Carrera GTS husband's general comment

Finally, my husband wrote about GTS's overall review.

GTS model is a price range that can reach GT3 if you add a little more(Exceeds depending on option)However, for town use, GTS is definitely more comfortable to ride. I think you can do shopping and pick-up as usual.

GTS is a model with enhanced sports performance as much as possible in everyday useI understand well. OneGT3 is a model that says, "The circuit is completely pivotal and you can use the street."

This is a big difference, and I think that there is a considerable difference between GT3 and GTS. With the GT3, I still don't want to go to shopping in the neighborhood, even if it's about commute distance.

This is just my feeling,I feel the difference between GTS and GT3 is bigger than the difference between 911 and Cayman.If you are lost in GTS and GT3, I would like to say: "If you have a lot of town use, make it GTS without hesitation"When. GT3 is different. If you don't like driving, you won't be tame.

By the way, this GTS is PDCC(Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control)It wasn't, but I thought this would change the impression. If you choose a used one, it is recommended to use PDCC.

I mean,At the same time, I had the opportunity to ride the GTS of the early 991 because it had a PDCC, it was very easy to drive and the ride was even betterIt is. I was surprised at the undercarriage that was as good as the latter model despite the earlier model. I thought again that the options would not lie.

    I am always looking forward to it.
    Well, GTS and GT3 haven't had any connection at home for a while,
    The other day, I went for a test drive of the Cayenne.
    From the moment I was sitting in the vehicle on display, the feeling that the chassis was solid came to me.
    Even after I started driving, it was an impressive impression.
    The elementary Cayenne we tested had Airsus and PDCC options.
    I thought it would be okay to have PDCC if my home would buy it,
    I looked at this blog and I was worried that it should be added after all.
    It would be nice if there was an opportunity to compare a Cayenne with PDCC with a Cayenne without it, but it is difficult.
    Is it really something that changes the ride so much?

      > Does it really change the ride so much?

      When I asked my husband, it seems that my husband did not directly compare the car with PDCC and the car without PDCC,
      PDCC-equipped vehicles are still smooth, so I was told that if I ride a non-equipped vehicle with that image, I will still feel the difference.

      The product manager of Porsche Japan previously had a preview of Taikan,
      "If I have either rear axle steering or PDCC, I want to have a PDCC. With a PDCC, I do not roll and I have a smooth ride"!

    I see. The same tire for 991.1GT3
    It was pilot sports cup 2,
    The feeling of stability at high speed and the feeling of grip at the corner,
    I think it depends on the degree of tire wear (groove depth).
    Of course, if the groove decreases, the above performance will drop
    Even in GT3, the amount of hand sweat increased in the high-speed range.
    It was time to change tires.
    Even with the same brand, tire wear
    The ride may change.

      Indeed ... it seems to change at all even in the degree of tire wear.
      The effect of the tire is great ...

      I think that the taste of my GT3 will change as I ride more,
      I wish I could feel that area again.
