Besides offering a power upgrade, Porsche says the new GTS models will also corner better thanks to the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) technology, which comes standard on all GTS variants. Furthermore, the GTS coupes gets the PASM sports chassis that lowers the car by ten millimeters. Some of the other notable features of the 2017 911 GTS include central black twin tailpipes, smoked taillights, and a silk-gloss black air intake grille.
