Car of the Year Awards 2022: Best high-end sports car

More than anything, sports cars need to thrill you. Acceleration is important, but it’s finesse and feel through corners that matter most...

Best high-end sports car

Porsche 911 Carrera GTS

Car of the Year 2022 - MotorEasy

Much as we love the entry-level Porsche 911 Carrera, we can see why you might be tempted to spend big to step up to the GTS model. After all, you get access to all the best suspension and braking bits from the much pricier 911 Turbo, giving you the most engaging 911 this side of the hardcore (and almost unobtainable) Porsche 911 GT3.

And you get to enjoy that dynamic prowess from within a tactile, GT3-like interior lined in faux suede. With more power than the Carrera and next-rung-up Carrera S, the GTS is virtually as quick as more exotic rivals such as the Lamborghini Huracan and McLaren 720S, while being far more usable, in part thanks to its small rear seats.

Its relatively compact size, agility and sweet steering mean you’ll probably have more fun on a twisty road, too. The upcoming Audi R8 Performance RWD might pose more of a threat, but right now, the GTS is the sweet spot among high-end sports cars.
