Porsche Reveals 2012 911 Carrera 4 GTS


Just as the current generation of the Porsche 911 is winding down, the German automaker has just released details and pictures of the all-wheel-drive version of the 911 GTS. It's simply the all-wheel-version of the 911 Carrera GTS. The 2012 Carrera 4 GTS, like the standard rear-wheel-drive GTS edition, comes in either Coupe or Cabriolet bodystyles and a choice of either a six-speed manual or the optional seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.

Power comes from the same 3.8-liter flat-six engine with 408 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. It also comes with a sports exhaust system and the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) stability control that sends the optimal torque levels to the front wheels via a multi-plate clutch. There's also a standard limited-slip differential. The Coupe goes from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds and Cabriolet does it in 4.8 seconds. Opting for the PDK cuts off an additional 0.2 seconds for each.

Visually, the 4 GTS differs from the standard GTS by means of a reflective stripe between the taillights along with the name type on the doors and rear lid. It comes with 19-inch RS Spyder wheels in black, a Sport-Design front bumper, lip spoiler, and custom side skirts. The interior is adorned with Alcantara trim and sport bucket seats. It will arrive in dealers this fall with a $110,200 base price for the Coupe and $120,100 for the Cabriolet.
