The 2017 Porsche Carrera GTS ditched the 911 styling Porsche had previously used for just about any other road car and most racers. Although the front bumper did resemble the 911’s, everything else was unique to the Porsche Carrera Turbo. The headlamps were larger and the nose was longer and flatter. The 2017 Porsche Carrera GTSalso showcased a unique design. Its flat body, long rear deck, the sculpted door panels, and shorter rear overhang removed all doubts that it had been based on the 911. Designed as a spyder model only. The 2017 Porsche Carrera GTS came with two carbon-fiber panels for closed-top driving.
