Four new 911 Carrera GTS versions, Coupé and Cabriolet, are available with either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and both versions guarantee higher levels of dynamic performance and driving enjoyment.
Porsche 911 Carrera GTS in Coupe and Cabriolet versions
At a glance, the 911 Carrera GTS differs significantly from the previous Carrera versions. All versions feature the 911 Carrera 4 body with wide-flared rear wheel arches and a wider track. Also standard are 20-inch wheels with center-lock mechanism, painted in an exclusive matt-black finish. Accentuating the nose styling are special trim elements and smoked bi-Xenon headlights with the addition of the Porsche Dynamic Lighting System (PDLS). From the rear, the air intake grille on the engine lid features bespoke GTS black trim strips and black chrome-plated exhaust tailpipes. Further aural distinction is delivered via the standard sports exhaust system, which delivers an unmistakable GTS sound.
The driver and front passenger sit in an exclusive Alcantara interior with leather-trimmed sport seats. The center seat panels are finished in Alcantara, as on the other Porsche GTS variants. At the center of the dashboard, there’s a 7-inch color touch-screen Porsche Communication Management with satellite navigation that enables radio and plays MP3s, as well as connects to wireless or Bluetooth-enabled devices. An automatic climate control switch is available to keep inside temperature cool at all times.
Under the rear engine lid lies an evocative flat-six power unit, tuned to develop 430 hp, an increase of 30 hp over the Carrera S. This is combined with the Sport Chrono package offering dynamic engine mounts, and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) damper system which lowers the car’s ride height by ten millimeters.
Improved efficiency has also led to quicker acceleration and higher top speeds, and Combined fuel consumption figures remain unchanged from the favorable level of the S models. For example, when combined with the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch gearbox, the 911 Carrera GTS could return 8.7l/100km (32.5 mpg) and also sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds (Cabriolet: 4.2 seconds). With the standard seven-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive, a top speed of 318 km/h (198 mph) is possible.
With the addition of these new top models, the 911 Carrera range now consists of 12 sports cars at three power levels, as Coupés and Cabriolets, and in rear-wheel and all-wheel drive configuration.
Relevant Assistance systems included for the new 911 Carrera GTS package consists of the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with rear LSD (limited slip differential) and Porsche Vehicle Tracking anti-theft system. The top-flight 911 Carrera 4 GTS even has the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system.
