Porsche unveiled a GTS version for its 911 Carrera back in 2010 and now it looks like the history is about to repeat itself. Our spy photographers sent us some spy shots that seem to reveal more than a simple revision to the latest generation of the Porsche 911 — the 991.
In fact, we believe that this revised Carrera will also get a GTS variant because the prototype caught here features a few telltale signs of the old GTS. First, it has a wider body and some additional air outlets in the rear bumper, just like the 2010 GTS did.
Up front, there is a new front bumper with revised air intakes and new, LED daytime running lights. Additionally, the rear end gets a new set of taillights, which lead us to believe that this GTS also carries the changes that we can expect across the entire 911 range — sans the wide-body kit, of course.
The facelifted Porsche 991 Carrera is expected to be unveiled in late 2014 or early 2015 and the GTS version should arrive during the same period.

December 10, 2013 - First Sighting
March 10, 2014 - Porsche 911 GTS caught testing one more time.
The prototype caught testing today by our spy photographers has camo only on the front and rear, which are the parts that will receive most of the updates when the revised 991 — call it a 991.2 — arrives on the market.
You should expect revised front and rear bumpers, new LED daytime running lights, larger taillights and modified door handles.
Also, the prototype shown here features a wider body and some additional air outlets in the rear bumper.
Our rendering for the upcoming Carrera GTS is based on the latest spy shots. It adds a new bumper with revised air intakes, new side skirts, revised headlights and black wheels. All these changes completely transform the look of the Carrera, giving it a fresh look that is sure to make any Porsche lover drool.
The Porsche 997 GTS was unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and it was the most powerful Carrera in the lineup.
The GTS was powered by a 3.8-liter flat engine with an output of 408 horsepower. This powerplant allowed it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. Its top speed was set at 190 mph, when equipped with the Sport Chrono Package Plus.
On the U.S. market, the GTS coupe was priced at $104,050 and the convertible version at $113,850.
