I believe the GTS has about 7 lb-ft more and hope Porsche change the torque delivery to give it more kick lower in rpm.
Well it's difficult to say as a fact that the torque curve is better in the GTS. I personally don't like torque. I am more of a high rev guy. But I understand in the States torque is a lot more convenient and necessary than here in Germany. I never felt it lacked torque. Of course it's not a torquey car, but it definitely feels faster than the numbers say. Especially because of that amazing sound. I would definitely buy this car. It's absolutely fantastic imo.

BTW I am driving the GT3 at the moment and it's everything but torquey. No much happens below 5k RPM. But it's fun But I would never buy it for my home in LA. But you will hear more about it when I do my review.

Thanks for the questions
