At Porsche, the ‘GTS’ acronym represents an extra dose of sportiness across all model lines – both visually and in terms of driving dynamics. The three letters, which stand for Gran Turismo Sport, first entered the annals of Porsche history in 1964, when a 904 Carrera GTS won the legendary Targa Florio. The inspiration for the GTS models of the present day, on the other hand, came not from a racing car but from a luxury SUV: the Porsche Cayenne.
