There's always room for one more - at least, that seems to be the philosophy guiding the Porsche 911 Carrera, which has seen two additional variants join the family for 2015. Hot on the heels of the style-driven Targa 4 comes the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, the successor to one of last year's most popular models and a vehicle that has been thoroughly revised in order to position it as the most powerful, and best-packaged, Carrera of all.
You'll notice that I've been careful to include the 'Carrera' moniker in discussing the new GTS, and that's because I'm mirroring the language used by Porsche product planners at the launch event I attended at Willow Springs International Motorsports Park this past month. Specifically, the 911 Carrera GTS is intended to slot in as the most powerful member of the Carrera family, a vehicle that bridges the gap between the very quick Carrera S and the track-oriented 911 GT3. It's not just marketing mumbo-jumbo, either - as I discovered after a full day behind the wheel, the GTS has a number of Easter eggs in its basket should see it stealing sales away from each of the vehicles that book-end it in the showroom.
