Porsche has recently enjoyed people describing the GTS as the ‘sweet spot’ in the Porsche 911 range. It has had more oomph and more reward than the Carrera but not the focus nor the harshness of a Turbo or a GT3.

Imagine, then, the reaction when Porsche first said it was going to hybridise it, and the online fury at the potential of a two tonne, pluggable 911. Only it turns out that it’s neither two tonnes, nor pluggable.

It is, though, the most notable part of the 992-generation 911’s facelift (the 992.2, as Porsche people like to say).

At the time of writing (July 2024), we’ve seen details of the GTS and the basic Carrera (more on which later too), but the GTS’s part electrification is the big news.
