Porsche Reveals Four New 911 GTS Models
Porsche is adding four more models to its 911 GTS range, including a Coupé and a Cabriolet, available with either rear- or all-wheel drive.
The new 991s have received a bit of a power upgrade, as well as tweaked chassis and bespoke styling elements. Thus the 3.8-liter flat-six engine outputs 30 hp more than the previous models, bringing the figure up to 424 hp (430 PS), which enables the Coupe to go from 0 to 62 mph in 4 seconds, while the Cabriolet does the same in 4.2 seconds. All new additions to the range can exceed 300 km/h (186 mph), but the fastest of all is the 7-speed manual and rear-wheel drive Coupe, which can reach 306 km/h (190 mph).
In terms of appearance, the cars boast flared rear wheel arches and a wider rear track, as well as a unique front bumper, smoked bi-Xenon headlights, dark chrome exhaust finishers, and matte-black 20-inch wheels. On the inside, the seats and door panels feature a combination of Alcantara and leather, while the steering wheel and headliner also come in Alcantara.
The new Porsche 911 GTS series will be unveiled in Europe starting in November, while North America will get the new range a month later. Pricing for the 2015 models starts at $114,200 (the 911 Carrera GTS), rising to as much as $132,800 (the Cabriolet version).
