sports car enthusiasts with a penchant for Porsche’s fast cars that are a little less family orientated, rejoice because the next GTS is here, well, almost and it is not just any GTS, it is the 911 Carrera GTS that we are talking about. slated to hit the showrooms in the U.S. this November, there is not one, not two but four models to make you at least $114,200 poorer. the four models include a coupe and a cabriolet, offered in a choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, but regardless which you choose, you will find the same evocative flat-six engine at the rear, pushing out 430 horsepower – a 30 hp over the Carrera S, in case you want to know where those extra money goes to.
but of course, it is more than just extra power. there are other perks that comes with every Porsche that wears the GTS badge, including but not limited to, Sport Chrono package comprising of dynamic engine mounts, Porsche Torque Vectoring with rear LSD and Porsche Active Suspension Management PASM) damper system that lowers the ride height by 10mm, plus some mandatory GTS makeover inside and out. we will get to that later. meanwhile, on the performance aspect, 911 GTS is naturally quicker, but maintains the same economy as the S models. equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe aka PDK double-clutch gearbox, it makes 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 4 seconds flat (or 4.2, for the cabriolet) and the rear-wheel drive model can reach up to an exhilarating 198 mph (318 km/h) when mated to a seven-speed manual gearbox.
