Want to know what it’s like to get behind the wheel of a Porsche 718 GTS in Austin? This quick overview will give you a good idea. 

The Porsche 718 GTS Model Essentials

Like the other 718s below it, the Porsche 718 GTS model has a throaty rumble that gives everyone around an audible sample of what it’s like to fly down the road in this easy driving sports car. It definitely brings back memories of the popular 912 Porsche. Of course, the beautiful styling is also a dead giveaway for how much fun this car is to drive.  


Performance is where the Porsche 718 GTS model is at its best. Like the T models, the GTS version is somewhat stripped down of extras and creature comforts to keep the focus on drivability. It’s such a great experience, some Porsche enthusiasts think the GTS is better than the supped up Spyder. The performance may just be enough to make you forget about the flat six.
