With a naturally aspirated six cylinder boxer engine, the new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS gains 30 hp over the 911 S, placing it between the GT3 and S models in the power lineup of 911′s. One major distinction, unlike the new GT3, the GTS is available with a manual transmission for those enthusiasts who want to be more engaged with the car, row through the gears, and use a little heel-toe action. However, the paddle-shifted PDK transmission does provide increased performance and gets the 430 hp GTS from 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds, whereas it takes 4.2 when shifting yourself in the seven-speed manual. The GTS sits on menacing 20″ Satin Blak Turbo S wheels and receives an optimized front spoiler with aggressive large air intakes. Inside, the car gets special treatment and is loaded with alcantara, “Sport” seats and steering wheeling wheel, and GTS badges & accents. Coming soon, the Porsche 911 GTS is also available as a convertible and with four-wheel drive.
Porsche offers 18 versions of it’s 911 model, but hell – let’s make it an even twenty. The new GTS Coupe and Convertible squeeze between the Carrera S and GT3 in terms of power. The 408hp inline 6 whips the GTS to 60 in 4 seconds flat when matched with Porsche’s PDK transmission. The GTS features 19″ center locking wheels, alcantara interior, revised air ducks and exclusive three spoke steering wheel. Starting at $103k the Porsche 911 Carrera GTS is sure to please.
Yup, that is one sexy steering wheel.
