Porsche may have one more vehicle in its stable with the GTS moniker, if these spy shots are any indication. They show off the presumed 911 GTS lapping the track – the model meant to slide in under the GT3 to be a bit more driver-friendly but still very fast alternative to a stock Carrera.

At first glance, it might look like any other 911, but the devil is in the details. The most obvious among the differences are two centrally mounted exhaust outlets, rather than the ones closer to the corners on most of the current models. They also aren't perfectly in the center like the GT3. The taillights are also somewhat thicker than the current ones, and the rear decklid is split into three exposed sections.

This is the third time we've seen the presumed GTS. The first was as a coupe late last year. Then it showed up again in March testing in convertible form. Although, that version also sported fender vents at the rear.

The GTS will likely launch at about the same time as the facelifted 911. With the previous generation as a guide, it will probably feature power somewhere between the Carrera S and the GT3, widened fenders and a slightly different front and rear bumper. Until then, click through the gallery and spot the tiny differences.

      The 997 GTS, in terms of power, basically had the X51 PowerKit as standard. So the realistic expectation is the 991 GTS will make 430HP, same as a Carrera S would with the X51 PowerKit.

      I'm really not fond of the fact they will make the tail lights bigger again

      Weird, the cladding indent under the taillight sticker looks almost exactly like a 997's.

      Hopefully this is the one uber-performance variant of the 991 that Porsche puts a legitimate manual in. I get the benefits of the PDK/DCT. And I get that there is no logical reason to put a real manual in something with this level of performance... other than being ridiculously fun. But they should have at least one model after the "S" with a clutch pedal.

        They already said the 991 GTS will have a manual standard or PDK available as an option.
