In a nutshell: more exclusive than the Carrera S and easier to handle than the GT3.
Take all of the best elements from the current Porsche 911 Carrera S and GT3, and package them together. That, in a nutshell, is the 911 GTS. Now making its official live debut on the display floor of this year’s LA Auto Show, the 911 GTS range, consisting of four models, may just be the best overall 911 to date. Buyers will have the choice of a coupe and convertible, and rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive. Power comes from the familiar 3.8-liter flat-six, now producing 424 horsepower (up by 30 hp over the Carrera S).
With the help of a dual-clutch PDK, the GTS makes the sprint from 0-62 mph in four seconds flat; the GTS Cabrio takes 4.2 seconds. AWD models have a top speed of 186 mph while 190 mph is the case when only the rear wheels receive the power. All GTS models feature PASM active dampers, a lowered ride height of 10 mm, and the Sport Chrono Package. The interior comes with plenty of Alcantara trim. Other exterior enhancements include a sports exhaust system, the Carrera 4’s wide body, and 20-inch matte black wheels. There are also black-accented air intakes, rear diffuser, and decklid. Pricing for the Coupe starts at $114,000 and AWD adds $6k to that. The Cabrio bases at $126,100 and AWD will cost $4,800 more.
