It offers the standard Targa's exceptional looks and cool roof, but with a ton of extra performance.

That performance gives it near-GT3 levels of power and way more torque than Porsche's more track-focused 911.

The 2022 GTS makes a healthy 473 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.

The GTS trim also nets you a ton of standard performance equipment like a lowered suspension and reduced weight.

Going GTS also gets you a bunch of blacked-out trim, which works especially well in the Targa, with the flat black Targa bar offering a subtly more aggressive look.
