It seems strange to start a story about a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS by talking about the GT3. But to understand not just what’s happened to the former but also why, I have to put it in the context of the latter.

I’ll explain. You will probably know by now that the still new 911 GT3 is a very changed car from its predecessor. With double wishbone front suspension, significant downforce and doubled spring rates, if it can even still be described as a toy, it is now a very serious plaything. So serious indeed that when the Touring came along and didn’t need the spring rate to support the body under all that downforce, I just presumed Porsche would soften it off and restore its ride quality.
