More power and dynamic performance – the new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS models
Porsche is sending its second generation of the 911 Carrera GTS to the starting line. Four models – each available in coupe or cabriolet, with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive – now close the gap between the 911 Carrera S and the road-legal sports car optimised for the race track, the 911 GT3. Some of the technical ingredients that generate even more dynamic performance and driving fun for this model include; 430 hp power, Sport Chrono package and PASM active damper system – which lowers the car’s ride height by 10 millimetres.
Improved efficiency has also led to quicker accelerations and higher top speeds, with fuel consumption figures remaining unchanged at the favourable level of the S models. When combined with the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the 911 Carrera GTS accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds (cabriolet: 4.2 seconds). All the new GTS models reach top speeds of more than 300 km/h; with the manual transmission, rear-wheel drive Coupe being the fastest at 306 km/h.
Taking into consideration additional features on offer, the new top models are attractive in price. Options such as bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and the sport exhaust system for unmistakable GTS sound are included as standard. The new models also feature the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared rear wheel arches, a wide track and 20-inch alloys with centre wheel locks, painted in exclusive black silk gloss.
Like other GTS models from the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer, the new 911 interior includes exclusive Alcantara leather-trimmed sport seats for driver and passenger, alongside centre panels also finished in Alcantara. Whilst black trim strips on the customised GTS air intake screen and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes accentuate the rear of the car.
With the addition of these new top models, the 911 Carrera range now consists of twelve sports cars at three power levels, as coupes and cabriolets, and with rear-wheel and all-wheel drive systems. The new 911 Carrera GTS and 911 Carrera 4 GTS models can be ordered as of now.
