The Porsche 911 GTS is back. With more power, keener suspension and changes to the aerodynamics, the GTS becomes the sharpest 911 you can currently buy; not quite a GT3, but sharper and edgier than a regular Porsche 911 Carrera.

The GTS can be had as a Targa, Cabriolet or Coupe, with two or four-wheel drive and with a manual or dual-clutch auto gearbox. We head to Wales to test the four-wheel drive coupe with a PDK automatic gearbox. At around £100,000 and with 444bhp, not only does the GTS go up against the likes of the Jaguar F-Type and BMW M6 but, as we discover, is so good that it could also challenge the Audi R8 and McLaren 570 S.

the music

Can somebody, andbody please tell me what is the name of background music playing before Matt shows up in this video? The New Age style piano music sounds just brilliant , I've been searched here and there desperately for its name. If only Mr.Prior hinself could see this humble comment ....

911 Carrera 4 GTS video

Is it necessary to have the irritating music playing over Matt Priors commentary? It makes it difficult to hear what he's saying.
