Another week, another nearly new Carrera GTS in an interesting color. Last week it was Mint Green. This week we have an all-time great: Signal Yellow. In my write up of the Mint Green GTS I mentioned that it’s a color that not everyone is going to warm up to. It stands a good bit outside of the norm for a car color. And, if we’re honest, it doesn’t show quite as well on these modern 911s as it did on earlier models like the 964.
While a yellow exterior itself isn’t always to everyone’s favor, Signal Yellow is just about as good an option in yellow as I can imagine. And, unlike Mint Green, it still looks amazing on a modern 911. Just look at it. It’s superb!

Like the Mint Green GTS this one hasn’t gone overboard with options so once we take into account the fee for the PTS exterior the price here hasn’t creeped up too high. A couple of things that quickly stand out to me: I really like the deletion of the model designation on the doors. I don’t think I’ve seen a GTS with that (or at least not noticed it), but I like it better. I also like the GTS black wheels much better on Signal Yellow.
Because this is one model year newer this GTS has the new 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged engine that Porsche recently introduced. I can’t say I’ve fully come to terms with this all new turbo lineup, but it is what it is. Power certainly hasn’t suffered: 450 hp is on tap, now delivered to the rear wheels via a 7-speed manual transmission. The fun certainly should remain.
But this is more about an iconic Porsche color. Those shopping for a new GTS and considering their PTS options should have this one in mind. As I said, Signal Yellow seems to carry its greatness across the decades and still looks stunning. It makes a great PTS choice. The asking price here looks like it’s a little below what it’d have cost new (though not slashed quite as much as the Mint Green one was) so you save a little money by accepting that it has 3K miles on it already. Of course, it also can be yours immediately.
