2017 Porsche Tagra GTS Engine
Although not officially confirmed yet, the GTS will ditch the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat-six for a turbocharged, 3.0-liter unit. This is exactly what happened to the Carrera models with the 991.2 facelift and, unfortunately for all naturally aspirated 911s, except for the hardcore GT3 and R versions. The facelift Carrera S comes with 420 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque on tap, so it’s safe to assume that the Targa GTS will get close to 450 horses and at least 380 pound-feet of twist. Both the seven-speed manual and PDK gearboxes. Performance-wise, it will be a bit quicker than the Carrera S-based Targa model. We expect the manual version to hit 60 mph from a standing start in 4.1 seconds and the PDK-equipped model to reach the same benchmark in 3.9 ticks. The Chrono Package will shave another tenth-second off for a 0-to-60 mph sprint of 3.8 seconds. Top speed should be close to 188 mph.
2017 Porsche Tagra GTS Interior
2017 Porsche Tagra GTS isn’t much to say about the interior with no photos to run by, but if the standard Carrera and Turbo models are any indication, changes should be minor as far as design and trim go. Look for a similar center console loaded with buttons and a large touchscreen, a three-spoke, multi-function steering wheel, bolstered seats, and plenty of high-grade materials such as fine leather and Alcantara to go with aluminum and carbon-fiber inserts.
More notable changes are to be found in the Porsche Communication (PCM) infotainment system that will include a revised seven-inch display, standard navigation with hand-written inputs, a free one-year subscription for real-time traffic info, on-board Wi-Fi for smartphone connectivity. The Targa GTS will also get the optional electro-hydraulic lift feature that increases front ground clearance by 40 mm (1.57 inches) for easier navigation across speed bumps and through angles driveways.
